5 Hot Bathroom Trends You Have to Know
A bathroom remodel is an exciting prospect, but the options can be daunting. Go into any home improvement store or flip through any catalog, and you might find yourself overwhelmed by the sheer amount of tile, trim, and vanities. To aid your new bathroom remodel, we’ve compiled our favorite trends that will be stylish for years to come.
Consider one of these to create a bathroom your friends and family will all love:
Fish Scale Tile
Fish scale tile, or mermaid tile, is aptly named. Small, half-moon tiles with pointed ends fit together just like fish scales, creating visual interest. If you’re the kind of person who always needs to feel close to the water, this might be the right option for you – each time you step into your fish scale tiled bathroom, you’ll feel like you entered an underwater oasis. Try a cerulean glazed tile against stark white tubs and fixtures for a nice contrast.
Natural, textured stonework in your bathroom will make it seem more like a spa. Add a frameless glass shower and clean fixtures for a desert-modern feel.
Custom Built-Ins for Storage
Your bathroom should be a relaxing place for you to unwind or to prepare for the new day. That’s hard to do when you don’t have enough storage space for all your toiletries. Custom built-ins allow for plenty of space to store towels, hair products, makeup, and other essentials. Make the most of your vertical space and build your cabinetry all the way up the wall. If this isn’t an option, consider an interesting piece of antique furniture.
Since your bathroom should be relaxing, ease of use and lack of fuss is the key. One of the best ways to achieve this is with a frameless shower coated in sealant. Cleanup and maintenance is a snap, your bathroom appears larger because of the glass walls, and your space will feel more like a spa. Other fixtures that work well to achieve your minimal-effort aesthetic: comfort height toilets, floating vanities, and bathroom/shower combo wet rooms.
Most people like to sing in the shower, but new accessories make it easier than ever to follow your favorite tunes. Consider installing a showerhead with a built-in waterproof speaker or even installing a small hideaway TV so you can binge watch your favorite shows while relaxing in the tub.
No matter which option you choose first, these trends will make your bathroom everyone’s favorite spot in the house. Maybe it’s time for an update of the other one, too?
