Units and suites
Taking inspiration from luxurious spas, modern bathroom fixtures are generally sleek, streamlined and as inconspicuous as possible. This means that toilets and basins are wall-mounted if possible and simple but elegant with clean lines. Minimalist white continues to be a good option, with natural wood finishes also proving popular.

Moving away from traditional storage boxes and tubs, the trend for 2013 is to have efficient and incorporated storage so that everything is tucked neatly away and not on display. To achieve this system smart units are available which have internal drawers and dividers to ensure everything has its place and clutter is vastly reduced.

The tiles you choose for your bathroom can have a huge impact and thankfully, there are plenty of options with tiles being big news right now. As one of the most influential bathroom inclusions, the right tiles can make or break the room. The top trends for 2013 are large, bold tiles that make a statement and mosaics continue to grow in popularity too. Natural finishes like stone are also a good choice.

One way to update your bathroom instantly and effortlessly is to freshen up the walls and there is no end to the possibilities. Neutral colours continue to be a strong trend, with cooler accents like duck egg blue and sage green ever popular. For larger rooms it's possible to be a bit bolder by having a feature wall or two in a strong, daring shade.

Whilst hiding away all that clutter inside integrated storage, you can afford to have a few carefully chosen accessories on display. The current trend is to match everything as closely as possible to the units, with many suppliers now producing matching items to make it easy to do. Otherwise, choose contrasting towels, soap dispensers and light pulls, to add a focal point effortlessly.

So, with a whole world of design possibilities for 2013, where will your bathroom take you this year?
