Minimalist shower design is on trend for 2023

25 November 2022

With a new year ahead being the ideal time to start planning for new bathroom projects, taking a look at the latest trends helps to inspire creativity, before emulating the latest fashions with shower hardware solutions and stone surfaces from CRL.

The bathroom has become an extension of our living areas and a space to escape in order to unwind and relax. Minimal design is therefore here to stay, with an uncluttered, neat finish being the ultimate goal, from the largest fixtures and fittings such as the bath and shower, to the smallest details such as shower hardware.

Minimal styling in the bathroom is more than a passing trend it’s a look that is very much here to stay. Elegance, simplicity and functionality are key to the minimal bathroom, making compact spaces look and feel much bigger and creating a modern, almost hotel-inspired appearance. Minimalism works in classic and contemporary spaces of course, with an emphasis on clutter-free, low-maintenance, ergonomic environments that can be comfortably used by the whole household.

Combining minimalism with accessibility in the modern bathroom, sliding shower doors are the ideal solution when space is tight in compact situations. The Serenity sliding shower door system from CRL is a case in point – available in a choice of on-trend finishes including contemporary matt black and brushed stainless steel, the system keep hardware to a minimum to create a frameless look and almost floating appearance.

From a practical viewpoint, operation of the sliding shower door itself is almost effortless and extremely quiet thanks to stainless steel anti-lift rollers that maximise on safety.

CRL also offers a wide range of shower hardware for hinged door and fixed panel options, including glass clamps that provide a clean-looking alternative to U-Channels and a square support bar that responds to the trend for geometric design helping to maintain the frameless appearance of a contemporary shower enclosure, these can be specified with square cornered and bevelled edge hinges that can be exactly matched, in a variety of finishes, including chrome and matte black.

Another major trend in bathroom design is for wall cladding, particularly in shower areas and even to create a feature wall, as a seamless, easier to install and maintain alternative to tiles. The latest 6mm thick surfaces from CRL are water resistant and highly durable, achieving a high-end look with the wide range of styles, including luxurious nature-inspired stone effects. The slim-line material is available in large slab format for ease of installation that works well in modest schemes and premium bathrooms alike.
