Concrete, bricks and exposed wood

The rustic charm of exposed concrete in the bathroom

From warm wood tones to exposed concrete, the aesthetic appeal of natural materials is in – and the bathroom is no exception. There, raw materials entice the sense of touch and are appealing in conjunction with modern design. Wherever elegant-rustic finishes are combined with bathroom faucets of the highest standard, what results is an individual feel-good room.

Contemporary meets rustic in the bathroom

Wall finishes of exposed plaster create a spacious look, even in smaller bathrooms. The natural sheen of cement is visually unobtrusive and harmonizes well with modern design. Glistening metal technology for bathroom comfort is particularly effective when staged in an elegantly rustic setting. Handcrafted accessories reinforce the visual charm of the authentic finishes. A coarsely woven carpet against seamless concrete creates a natural accent. And brick masonry contrasts beautifully with high-quality faucets and fine bathroom textiles.  

The delight of rough finishes and contrast

In addition to concrete and masonry, recycled materials also feature prominently in this bathroom trend. This design lends the spaces an unexpectedly sensual atmosphere.
 
Wall decor creates a unique visual effect wherever an easy solution with a vintage look is sought. Innovative photographic wallpapers with a concrete look are now also available for the bathroom. Tiles with a wooden look and referencing patina are very popular. The atmosphere in the bathroom can then be changed with little effort to become more in line with current trends.

Wow! This bathroom is real

Natural materials in the bathroom make visitors want to reach out and touch them, feel them beneath their bare feet and experience them through the sense of touch.
