Bathroom Trends to Look for in 2017
November 15, 2016
Thinking of remodeling your bathroom after the New Year? Now is a great time to start considering what alterations you want to make in order to give your bathroom a brand new look and feel! Clueless on where to start? Here are some bathroom designs and trends to look for in 2017 that will help you get started on your own remodel:
Relaxing and cool tones like emerald green and light blues paired with soft whites add brightness to any bathroom, especially those that do not contain windows that offer an abundance of natural light. These tones promote a sense of calm and tranquility and are best complemented by metallic or silver accents and fixtures.
Giving your walls a three-dimensional pattern creates a more sophisticated and high-quality look while incorporating a decorating theme that was popular in earlier decades and giving it a more modern look. Choose from simple overlapping circle patterns to tiles that create wave-like designs that pop out from the walls and give your bathroom a more exciting feel.
More and more technology is being created that enables us to listen to music hands-free wherever we are. Bluetooth speakers are becoming a popular bathroom accessory. Whether you like to belt out tunes in the shower or listen to calm sounds during a relaxing bath, there are plenty of ways to incorporate music-listening capabilities into your bathroom remodel. Install wireless speakers that lay flush with your bathroom walls or mount a docking station near the outside of your shower/bath for easy listening.
Though not a new concept, heated floors are a luxury that never goes out of style. During the winter months when floors are colder than normal, being able to step onto your bathroom flooring and feel immediate warmth is a comfort like no other. With the increasing importance of saving energy, radiant floor heat is an efficient addition to your bathroom because the heat touches your body and warms you from the bottom up!
Another older trend that seems to be resurfacing is the standalone or freestanding bathtub. Simple ceramic tubs with matte white tones and shining silver or polished brass fixtures give the old-fashioned trend a more modern feel and enhance the bathing experience. Want a freestanding tub but are concerned about space? Install a showerhead in the ceiling above the bath and an oval curtain rod around the outer area of the tub so you can use it for both bathing and showering!
