Are you ready to ring in the new year with a new bathroom? New trends are popping up just in time for a complete bathroom remodel or even just new coat of paint. Check out some of these new bathroom trends to see if there are any that inspire you for 2019!
Traditional bathrooms are a thing of the past. Instead, spa styles with clean and minimal appearances are more popular. Designers are starting to favor transitional bathrooms with classic and clean lines, wood cabinets, and painted walls. If you prefer a cool-temperature color palette and brushed nickel fixtures, the transitional trend might be for you.
If you prefer a more contemporary style, you might want to consider installing a soaking tub for a sculptural effect. Contemporary bathrooms also have porcelain tile covering larger surface areas for easy cleaning and frameless cabinetry.
Freestanding vanities, linen storage cabinets, and open shelving are in while medicine cabinets and over-the-toilet storage are out. Undermount sinks are also popular. The overall design for bathrooms is focused on sleek, clean lines that eliminate the appearance of clutter and gives the space a feeling of zen relaxation.
There are many trends that let homeowners explore different options for sprucing up their existing space. For example, converting all light bulbs to LEDs and installing energy-efficient fans are a big step in sustainability. Many homeowners are installing water-saving shower fittings in guest bathrooms to be more eco-friendly.
The wet room, instead of a closed-in shower, is becoming more popular because it follows the spa trend. Rather than having just a shower or a bathtub, the entire bathroom becomes the shower and a linear drain helps control water. Combined with radiant floor heating and steam showers, you could take your bathroom from a simple lavatory to an oasis of comfort.
