Relaxation. Luxury. Retreat.
These are just a few of the words you want to associate with your bathroom.
In this blog post, we’re highlighting four bathroom design trends so you can create a spa-like oasis in the comfort of your own home.
Wood-Like Porcelain Floor Tiles
Wood-like porcelain tiles are becoming increasingly popular in 2021 due to their overall aesthetic.
However, there’s more to this floor choice than meets the eye.
This style of flooring is known to be long lasting and water resistant which makes it a perfect choice for a bathroom.
Not to mention, the natural resistance to stains and water makes it easy to maintain.
It’s important to note installing porcelain tiles can be a difficult process because they’re more dense and labor intensive to cut through. We suggest hiring a professional for installation.
If you want to take the look and feel of your bathroom to the next level, consider adding marble on more than just your countertops, but the walls as well.
Marble is a versatile material and meshes well with a variety of design styles including classic, contemporary, modern, traditional and more.
Furthermore, marble is a water resistant and durable material which makes it perfect for shower walls.
Even if you have just one marble wall in your bathroom, it has the potential to change the overall design of the room for the better by adding a focal point and depth to the space.
When it comes to cabinet hardware and fixtures, these seemingly small details can make a big difference in your bathroom.
That’s because the finish on your sink and shower fixtures and the color of the cabinet handles can pull in the entire look or create a sense of dimension with an extra pop of something bold.
Whether it’s light paint colors or countertops or even bamboo finishes, in 2021, we’re seeing dark hardware and fixtures being used to contrast the neutral color palette of a bathroom.
Matte black, brushed or weathered nickel, and of course gold are some of the more popular finishes to consider.
The lighting in your bathroom is perhaps the most important feature and what guides your other design decisions. That’s why striking a balance between artificial and natural lighting in your bathroom is so important.
In a previous blog post, we talked about the three different types of lighting, and these rules apply to the bathroom as well.
Infusing elements of all three lighting styles will help you illuminate the space more effectively.
And if you have a window in your bathroom, you’ll want to maximize the natural light during the day and enjoy privacy at night. The best and most modern way to do this is with custom wood shutters.
The simple yet sophisticated design of custom wood shutters can blend with just about any style or aesthetic you’re trying to create in your bathroom.
