DESIGNING THE LOOK PEOPLE make more con- sidered decisions about the products they have in their bathroom, including furniture. The most popular ranges in- clude unique options that cater to the trend of increased per- sonalisation in the bathroom. Many vanity units now incor- porate hidden compartments and extra storage options, which are particularly popular with customers, says Ms Geels. There has also been a move from simple cabinetry to el- egant pieces of furniture. BATHROOM TRENDS SPLASH HIT BATHS THREE TOP BUYS OF THE YEAR Custom furniture, heated towel rails and freestanding baths have become must-have items for the modern bathroom, according to Reece. Janita Singh DESIRE for change in the bath- room is reflected in our varying spending habits. Bathroom specialist Reece says the top trends for the year are freestanding baths, heated towel rails and custom bathroom furniture. Freestanding baths The popularity of this type of bath has tripled over the past three years. And with so many captivating, freestanding op- tions available, it is fast becom- ing the must-have item for any modern bathroom. Designers and consumers have embraced the trend. Nearly every finalist in the recent annual Reece Beautiful Bathroom Competition in- cluded a freestanding bath. Heated towel rails Sales have more than doubled in recent years and they have become one of the most popular bathroom items. Reece bath- room marketing manager Belinda Geels said homeowners enjoyed the instant touch of luxury that a heated towel rail offered and they had become a ''must-have''. ''Many customers are sur- prised to learn that heated towel rails are far more affordable than they expected,'' she said. ''Some of our ranges even use up to 25 per cent less energy than standard heated rails.''
