Timeless Trends in Bathroom Remodels

Written by Matt Normandin on . Posted in Bathroom Remodeling, How To..., Trends in Remodeling

Regardless of the prevailing design trends in bathroom remodeling luxury, practicality and economy of space are timeless. For budgets big and small, incorporating spa-like features that are tailored to the needs of the homeowner, now, and in the future, is a priority. Read on to learn the rest of the top 10 trends in bathroom remodels.

1. Custom Showers

Large showers are taking over as tubs take the back seat. Today’s showers are bigger, frameless to let in more light, and equipped with features like multi-head shower heads, waterfall shower heads, mood lighting, and Bluetooth access to mobile devices.

2. Walk-In Bath Tubs

Walk-in bath tubs are becoming more common. Walk-in tubs are designed to satisfy the needs of seniors, the disabled, handicapped or anyone with mobility challenges. If you’re looking at “aging-in-place,” for you or a loved one, a walk-in tub is a must have feature.

3. Glass

Ceramic has been the material of choice for tile in the bathroom for ages. Modern bathrooms are featuring sparkly glass tiles in a variety of hues. In addition to the added gloss and shine, glass tiles are easily made from recycled materials and make an excellent green option.

4. Subway Tile

Subway tile has been a trend in bathroom remodeling projects for a few years now, and it’s still hanging in there. Classic white looks perfect in almost any room, and some newer designs are using an ocean blue hue in frameless showers to give them a soothing, underwater appearance.

5. Heat 

Maybe it is because this has been a particularly rough winter all over the country, but bathroom remodeling projects are all finding ways to warm up the bathroom. From energy efficient radiant heat in the flooring to heated towel racks next to the shower, expect to find creative ways to keep warm this year.

6. Furniture Style Fixtures

This is another trend that is a carryover from previous years and it is still going strong. Homeowners are looking for fixtures with furniture quality that function well in the bathroom. From quick projects like framed mirrors to replacing heavy vanities with free-standing models, furniture-style is this year’s top upgrade.

7. More Light

Installing designer lighting and featured pieces, especially energy-efficient models, are on everyone’s list. For more ambitious bathroom remodeling projects, entire windows are being added. No matter what the project, finding ways to add light in a beautiful way is topping the trends list.

8. Smart Storage

To achieve the spa atmosphere, bathrooms are all including creative ways to banish the clutter. From floating shelves for pretty linens to pull-out storage under the sink, homeowners want to have everything at their fingertips, yet have it remain invisible.

9. Water Saving Options

Fixture designers have embraced green options so now homeowners don’t have to sacrifice style for function. Dual flush toilets, hands-free faucets, and smart shower heads are all finding their way into more and more bathroom remodeling projects.

10. The Powder Room 

Often found off the main rooms of the house, powder room remodels are taking on a life of their own. Where main bathroom trends are sleek, spa-like and modern, powder rooms are ornate, expressive, and bold. From whimsical wallpapers to bold and bright colors, these little rooms are packing a big design punch.
