One Room At A Time: Bathroom Trends

As we discussed in bedroom trends, there are also a variety of new trends for bathrooms in 2017, although a lot of trends from 2016 seem to be repeating again this year. Which is great news if you just remodeled last year! If not, we have gathered a variety of the trends to share with you.
– Bring the feel of nature into your bathroom. You can keep it simple and bring some plants into the room – not only to provide a look but it is good for the air in the room! Also gaining popularity is bringing a wood look into the room, either through a “wood look” tile floor or through a natural wood vanity. One of the more popular trends this year is using a stone tile, most often on the shower floor, or as an accent in any tile throughout the room.
– Add some drama to the room. The most common way is through tiles, which has really expanded recently with bolder patterns and colors. Adding glass accents can also add a dramatic look, whether through shower doors, or even tiles. Metallic accents are also back this year (a change from the more matted styles that had become popular in recent years) and can be added fairly easily through basic bathroom accessories, or even by replacing something as simple as toilet paper/towel holders.
– Stick with neutrals. Gray remains the most popular color to use throughout your decorating, but some pale pastels are joining as new neutrals as well. Don’t mistake pastels for Easter egg colors, rather than whites with a hint of color added to give some warmth to the space.some pale pastels are joining as new neutrals as well.

– Making the shower the statement of the room. Showers with glass walls, and large bold tiles. They are often accented with smaller glass tiles, either in a small border or to separate a storage area (soap, shampoo, etc). Adding large metallic fixtures as well give the shower a very high end finish.
Although a lot of the trends for this year are on the more expensive side, if you are looking for a simple update, or a less expensive change, you can always pull some inspiration from these styles. Keep in mind you can only do so many updates a year, and maybe 2017 isn’t the year for your bathroom.

One Room At A Time: Bathroom Overview

Moving on from the bedroom to one of the second most utilized rooms in the house brings us to the bathroom. Although one of the most functional rooms in the house, it is often considered one of the rooms that make a big impact in terms of the décor of a home. Since it is also often one of the smaller rooms in the home, you can keep it simple, or go bold. And hey, most people that visit your home are likely to use the bathroom at least one time while they’re there, so you get to show it off!
There are two ways to look at remodeling the bathroom – it is a small room, so it can be a small project, or it is a small room so why not do a complete renovation (which then equals a huge project). If you are looking to do a total renovation, it is always good to keep in mind how long certain elements will be in the bathroom. A bathtub and toilet will be something you can keep for as long as you own a house, so even if the trend is gray this year, you may want to consider that ten years from now there will be a new trend. On the other hand, the vanity and shower tiles, while things that may last an extremely long time, will be elements you want to change out based on styles and trends that gain and lose popularity. Keep in mind though, if you do go very trendy with them they are not inexpensive items to change out. The easiest elements to change out are the accent pieces and elements in a bathroom. Although it may seem small, the colors of your towels can quickly add a pop of color to your room. The throw rugs you have outside of the shower and in front of the toilet can also have the same effect. You can also update prints on the wall, or even your basic bathroom accessories – toothbrush holders, small handheld mirrors, and soap dishes. These items will make an even bigger impact if most the room is based on basic, neutral colors.
The key thing to keep in mind when designing a bathroom is that you want to keep it functional, and you want to keep it simple. But don’t be afraid to take a risk with a wall color – in the big picture, there is usually very little wall in the room so it won’t overwhelm.
