Bathrooms are built around the basics. After all, what would a bathroom be without a toilet, a sink, and (in most cases) a bath or shower? As you build a new bathroom or remodel your old one, you’ll probably begin by choosing these key features. Then, you can lay them out carefully (keeping practicalities in mind, like the location of plumbing lines) and begin working on the aesthetics of the space. If you’re having trouble, why not look to the current bathroom remodeling trends? They might inspire you to create an even more beautiful, efficient, and practical space.
Interested? Let’s look at the bathroom remodeling trends that are rocking the interior design world right now, in the middle of 2015.
Bathroom Remodeling Trends
Bold Flooring Choices. Floors are used to being walked all over, both literally and figuratively. A neutral tile is the most common choice, but why shouldn’t your floor be the center of attention? Consider using bold colors and striking designs, such as a mosaic.
Expansive, Walk-In Showers. Although most people are used to having a smaller, enclosed shower, these days more and more homeowners are exploring the idea of building larger, walk-in showers. In fact, sometimes these showers have no walls whatsoever! Just a well-placed shower head, lever, and drain. They can be called “doorless showers,” “curb-less showers,” and “no-threshold showers” as well.
Free-Standing Bathtubs. Due to the emphasis on showers, new bathrooms often lack bathtubs. However, many homeowners who do choose to install bathtubs are embracing them wholeheartedly. Don’t be surprised to see claw-footed tubs, modernly-curved tubs, and spa-jet soaking tubs popping up in bathrooms built this year.
A Focus on Lighting. Lighting is always crucial in a well-designed bathroom, but it’s having a moment in 2015. Instead of relying on standard overhead lighting, consider brightening your bathroom with a chandelier or spa-like dimmers.
Natural Materials. A general trend in bathrooms at the moment is to make them appear more spa-like. One way to accomplish this is to use natural materials: stone, wood (or wood-like tile), marble, granite, etc. Not only are these materials beautiful, but they also create a serene and calming atmosphere.
Water-Saving Toilets. Environmentally-friendly appliances are a trend you should expect to see for many years to come. Even if you don’t live in drought-ridden California, you should consider investing in a water-saving toilet. Not only will it lower your energy bills, but it will also appeal to future green-minded homebuyers. Low-flow (also called low-flush) and dual-flow toilets have been consistently gaining popularity.
The Color Gray. Finally, if there’s a color trend for bathrooms in 2015, it has to be gray. Gray was popular in 2014 as well, but it hasn’t gone anywhere in the last several months and we don’t expect it to either. Gray is sleek and sophisticated, and it can easily be brightened up with a strategically-placed splash of color.
