Long are the days that bathrooms serve as a functional room only. Todays Bathroom Designs and Remodels incorporate focal points, artwork, unique modern fixtures and custom cabinetry. We all know that a fully remodeled master bathroom and guest bathroom add value to your home, but homeowners today are seeking a more custom look and feel, while serving its original function.
Among some of the latest trends we are noticing more are free standing soaking tubs, preferably installed under a beautiful window over looking a gorgeous view. Soaking tubs create a relaxing spa like feel, while enjoying overlooking nature or city views.
Another trend we see often, is floating vanities. Floating vanities are great, especially if one is remodeling a small space. An LED under mount light feature is a must. This creates an open and airy feel, with a modern touch. Furthermore, installing a vanity under a window vs the traditional way, under a large mirror has become a common trend.
Another trend we see often is freestanding clear glass showers. Again, no walls means open airy space, especially if there is a nice window to look out off while enjoying a nice steam shower. Most homeowners today prefer larger size showers incorporating built in speakers for music, LED light features, benches and shampoo nooks. If your bathroom lacks natural light, a nice sky light can be inserted above the shower, or vanity sink area.
In 2019 we are also seeing more island style vanities. Similar to Kitchen Islands, bathroom center vanities come with stone countertop, seating, storage, and outlets. These unique vanities are custom designed and tailored to customer needs.
Statement walls and bold artwork is another concept we see more. Especially when designing small powder rooms, an accent wall adds a bold statement. Adding a sophisticated art work will provide a bathroom with a nice focal point.
Exposed plumbing has also become a trend if you’re looking to create a more industrial look and feel. However, we are noticing more homeowners prefer Pewter and Gunmetal hardware, which create both texture and warmth.
As far as materials and colors go, we are seeing more grey and white marble, large slabs, wood vanities, and concrete. Basically, a mix of organic and industrial materials.
To sum up, bathroom designs have evolved greatly over the past few years, homeowners today are seeking designs that create a big impression, serve both function and art, and a private spa like retreat after a long work day.
