A microcosm of interior design: the bath

Bathrooms have always featured prominently at the iF Design Awards. The reason is clear: this is a highly competitive and innovative sector, rich in detail and nuance, a microcosm of interior design. There are a variety of factors to consider in designing a bathroom. First, the layout must be carefully planned to ensure that there is adequate space for toilet, sink, shower/bath, storage units, and any other fixtures.

In aesthetic terms, the use of color and materials is key; lighter colors can make a small space feel larger and more open, while darker colors can create a cozy and intimate atmosphere. Similarly, the choice of materials for walls, flooring, and countertops can impact greatly on the overall style of the bathroom. Recent trends in bathroom design include the use of matt and black surfaces, marble tiling, elegant furnishings in black and white, and enhanced functionality thanks to smart devices.


Manufacturers in the bathroom sector have always been known for their high product design expertise. It remains exciting to see what innovations will be seen in their ranges this year.
