Bathroom renovations are a great opportunity to transform a very important room in the home. But before you begin picking out paint chips and shopping for plumbing fixtures, there’s a lot to learn when it comes to what’s trending. We put together this guide for you to help you better understand the trends, but while trends are great make sure you add your personal likes as you will start and finish your days often in a bathroom.
If you’re planning to renovate your bathroom this year, incorporate these changes into your bathroom:
Add a statement mirror
Interior designers talk about putting a focal point in any room. Why not the bathroom? Rectangular, frameless mirrors are commonly found in the bathroom, but homeowners are opting to put beautiful mirrors that make a statement. Opt for a unique design or shape to give your bathroom a unique and inviting look. Also adding light behind the mirror can change the feel of a bathroom especially in the dark.
Go bold with gold or copper fixtures
Chrome faucets and handles are also common in bathrooms. They tend to match any bathroom style. However, there are many more options to choose from. In the upcoming months, expect to see more bathrooms with bronze or copper fixtures. They look luxurious, make a statement and can fit into a wide variety of bathroom styles, from traditional to contemporary and modern. The next time you walk into a friend’s home, expect to see metallic finishes.
White porcelain sinks are standard in almost any bathroom because they’re a classic look. Porcelain sinks often come in the same rectangular shape and don’t offer a lot from a stylistic perspective. In 2016, however, bathroom renovations won’t be complete without more artistic looking sinks. Vessel sinks sit on top of the countertop and come in a wide variety of colours and styles. If you’re renovating your bathroom, a vessel sink will give you the opportunity to show off your personality and style with a unique bathroom accessory.
All bathrooms need some form of storage to house toilet paper, amenities, towels and the like. Freestanding sinks take up valuable storage space. That’s why homeowners are opting to put vanities that look like pieces of furniture in the bathroom. This makes the bathroom feel more like a living space, while offering the practicality you need to keep it neat and organized.
Double showers with a rain shower head
Double showers are expected to grow in popularity this year. A big shower with a rain showerhead offers the feeling of luxury. It also provides a chic, seamless look that you’ll love for a long time. Who doesn’t want that in a bathroom space?
Industrial-inspired bathrooms are on the rise. Picture concrete showers and bathroom floors. Concrete-look tiles will also be a popular option. Concrete is perfect for a modern bathroom, but add some plush bath mats and towels to soften the look of the room.
Big tiles on both the walls and floors are easy to clean and offer a seamless look. Plus, if you’re worried about dirty grout lines, you’ll have much less to look at.
