Seven Bathroom Remodeling Trends Taking Over 2017
What will a 2017 master bathroom look like? According to Normandy Designers, there will be many common themes incorporated into this year’s bathroom remodels, including man-made products that mimic natural materials, plenty of texture, and decorative details. That being said, if you are completing a bathroom renovation and want some design ideas, here are some popular trends to consider for your space:
Wood Tile – Recent technological advances have led to a porcelain tile that looks exactly like hardwood flooring. There are plenty of colors and plank sizes to choose from, allowing you to create everything from a rustic to a modern aesthetic. Additionally, because porcelain is not a natural material like wood, it can get wet and the only maintenance needed is basic cleaning.
Decorative Shower Niches – Shower niches are getting a little something extra – beautiful accent tiles. This design element not only adds a focal point to your bathroom but helps to break up the shower wall. Additionally, it can allow you to introduce color into the space.
Engineered Stone Instead of Marble – Quartz, and porcelain do a beautiful job of impersonating marble down to the veins. Additionally, they offer a slew of benefits. Unlike a natural marble stone, these materials are non-porous and do not need to be sealed. Their non-porous nature also means that your tile or countertops will not stain should something accidentally spill.
White on White –White is considered to be the color of perfection, evoking a feeling of wholeness and completion. With this current trend, various shades of white cabinetry, countertops, and tile are all working together to create a striking, monochromatic space.
Texture – Texture is being incorporated to create interest, especially in monochromatic color schemes like the white on whitelisted above. This includes textured wallpaper, tiles, glass, and metals.
Heated Flooring – While considered more of a splurge than a necessity, many are opting for heated flooring in their master bath. This popular amenity is a welcome comfort during the cold winter months. It’s not only easy to install but can be programmed to make it as energy-efficient as possible.
Sound Systems – For many, music is a part of their morning routine. Therefore, more bathrooms have blue tooth speakers installed into the ceiling or showerheads with music streaming capabilities.
