If you're like most homeowners, you view your bathroom as an area to relax and unwind. Some of the top reasons for remodeling a bathroom include, upgrading the outdated feel, expanding the shower space, and creating a look that better suits relaxation. Here are some top tips and trends to help you create your own oasis.
We've seen a shift in trend from the farmhouse, traditional style bathrooms to modern and transitional. Some characteristics of these styles include a sleek feel, interesting patterns, and bold metal finishes.
The white on white color scheme has seen an extreme rise in popularity. Mixing different patterns and textures of white is one of the easiest ways to create a luxurious space with interest. It provides a clean, fresh feel that can awaken your senses and provide ease of mind after a long day.
Using doubles is another rising trend. Recreating your usable and functional space to accommodate two people contributes to a more customizable, personal feel in your bathroom. Having two areas to work and store necessities creates more space and provides an easier setting to keep clean.
On par with double vanities, customizable storage that keeps up with your style is a necessity when re-creating your bathroom. The top cabinet style right now is the shaker door. Whites and calming, yet bold colors on vanities are being used to add to the spa-like feel. Using a natural wood can provide an earthy, organic feel, and add richness to your bathroom. To modernize the look of your storage, try using a floating vanity. It will create a high-end, customized look.
Expanding shower space is one of the most important reasons for remodels. You can use your new shower space to add to the comfort of your bathroom as well. Adding shower benches, rain heads, and jets can all contribute to a relaxing experience. Shower tile should be easy to clean, and have enough traction to avoid slippage. Gloss-finished, minimal grout wall tiles will be easiest to clean. Extra grout on the tile floor can create a non-slip finish.
One of the most important features of the bathroom will be your finishing touches. An easy way to make sure your plumbing, lighting, and wall fixtures keep up with the feel of your bathroom is to use a bold metal finish. Using a warm, gold or brass on a cool-colored pallet is a top trend, providing a soothing balance with interest and focal points.
