Bathrooms are the private space in any home and a design for this often personal space should reflect your personal style. From small powder rooms to expansive master bathrooms, many popular designers have their favorite bathroom trends anticipated for this year. Brass Finishes, Shower Panels, Bathroom Vanities, and Taps are just a few of the hot trends. From brass to brushed nickel, tins to stainless steel, new finishes and upgrades to classic looks, these are the most popular trends for the bath this year
If you want a traditional look with brass finishes, then you may want to build your dream bathroom around a long tub with one wall as the bottom. This would be the perfect place to install a whirlpool toilet and add luxurious tile flooring under the tub that is both durable and beautiful. Long tubs give you the same luxury of a soaking tub without the deep soaking pool, while providing more room under the tub for your shower supplies and other items. Adding a shower curtain with a two tier skirting also adds extra storage space for the rest of your shower accessories.
If you have a smaller bathroom space, then contemporary claw foot tubs are the perfect solution for your space. They are designed to be very functional with narrow edges to prevent splinters and are available in a variety of sizes. The modern claw foot style also offers a unique focal point in the bath that is difficult to match from another style of bathtub.
In the master bathroom, the homeowner has the option of two separate and individual vanity areas. Each vanity can contain a sink and/or toilet, which allow a person to choose how much toilet and vanity space they need for a comfortable and stylish space. Many homeowners prefer to have the vanity closer to the shower instead of placing it in the middle of the room. Placing the toilet to the side allows easier cleaning and eliminates the need to reach down into the bath to wash your hands after using the toilet. The vanity closer to the side of the tub also allows easier access to the showerhead to quickly get to. This makes the bathroom appear larger and spacious.
In terms of the kitchen, homeowners are trending toward contemporary materials and colors. Galvanized and brushed nickel cabinet pulls, faucets, and soap dishes are being replaced with European chrome and brass for more timeless looks. Diclerico said trend watchers have been watching carefully the materials used in bathrooms and kitchens to see if there are any new trends showing up. He said that both the kitchen and bathroom have changed tremendously since the Gothic and Edwardian styles were first introduced, but one thing hasn’t changed: homeowners continue to like Gothic themes because they’re unique and give a dramatic effect when decorated properly.
With the popularity of both the kitchen and the bathroom, it’s important to keep up with current trends to ensure that you’re not left out of the homeowners’ plan.
