6 Gorgeous Bathroom Design Trends
Your bathroom may very well be the most dated room in your home. The bathroom gets used a lot, but it also tends to be seen as a functional space, and it is lower on the priority list when it comes to redecorating. It also requires a lot more manpower and money to remodel a bathroom, so many put it lower on the list. It may well be time to consider giving your bathroom a fresh, new look so that you can enjoy the space again and you can improve the value of your home.
You have a lot more options than you might think for remodeling your bathroom, considering it’s such a small space compared to the rest of your home. Here are six gorgeous bathroom design trends you might want to consider for your remodel:
1. Interesting Tile Designs and Colors
Gone are the days where the big trend was a specific color of tile. Homeowners are getting very adventurous with different types of tile now, including different shapes and sizes, interesting patterns, and unusual color combinations. Textured tile is also really popular right now since it creates a different look without going too far outside the lines for color or style. Among colors, earth tones like olive, beige, and taupe are very popular since they creating a soothing feeling for the space, as well as a sophisticated look.
2. Unusual Fixtures
Traditionally, there hasn’t been much you could do to liven up the fixtures around your bathroom, such as the spout on your tub or the faucet on your sink. The latest trends have homeowners trying out new things for fixtures, such as oiled bronze or metal lucite. The oiled bronze creates a luxury, antique look to the space, the lucite is clear yet reflects the light, creating a bright finish. Rose gold has also been a popular option for finishes.
3. New Sink Designs
Bathroom sinks have typically been designed the same as kitchen sinks: The sink would be dropped into a hole in the countertop and then sealed around the edges. The trend now is for the bathroom sink to be integrated into the vanity as one continuous piece or for it to sit entirely on top of the counter, as its own separate piece. The integrated sinks create a streamlined look that is modern and sophisticated, while the separate sinks can create a rustic or modern look, depending on the materials used. Metal wash bins and clear bowls are both popular options for separate sinks.
4. Freestanding Tubs
Claw-foot tubs used to be the trend. Then they were considered antique. Now, they’re popular again. Everything retro seems to come back in vogue. In addition to claw-foot tubs, other freestanding tubs are also popular. They allow more variety of design options all the way around the tub, including the use of tile, and they create a greater sense of space in a small bathroom.
5. Rainfall Showers
Do you feel like you just never get enough water pressure or coverage during your shower? You may be able to solve the problem with a new showerhead or a call to the plumber, or you may want to consider a rainfall shower. These showers put a large showerhead directly on the ceiling, raining the water straight down on your head. They can be paired with a traditional showerhead for even greater coverage. You’ll have to work with a plumber to re-route a water line or two, but you’ll find the results to be well worth it.
6. Ergonomic Design
You aren’t just going to look at your bathroom and admire its beauty; you’re also going to be using the space, and you want it to be comfortable. There is a growing trend of focusing on ergonomic design in bathroom remodels, from the items that are chosen for the space to where they are arranged. Your contractor will help you think through issues like who will be using the space, what special needs they might have, and how those things will change over time.
