7 Bathroom Design Trends That Will Never Go Out of Style
Though bathrooms aren’t exactly the first thing that people notice in a home, it doesn’t make them any less important. After all, it’s where your day starts from and where you get rid of the dirt, grime, and stress at the end of a tiring day. Who wouldn’t want to turn their otherwise boring bathroom into a stylish space to unwind? A good way to start is by taking a look into bathroom design trends. While trends generally come and go, there are some trends that never go out of style. Here are 7 such bathroom trends that will help turn your bathroom into a space that fetches a lot of compliments.
- Get Stylish Floor Tiles
Stylish floor tiles gained popularity many years back and it doesn’t seem to fade anytime soon. Feature floor tiles look stunning and work great for both small and large bathrooms. Feature tiles come in a wide variety of styles (think: Moroccan style floors) and look great when paired with a free standing bath.
- Indulge in Roll-Top Baths
The roll-top bath is one timeless piece that can instantly take your bathroom from bland to beautiful. While it certainly looks lavish, you don’t necessarily have to break the bank to get one. You can easily get one of these at a discounted price if you look around.
- Install the Right Washstand
Have a compact bathroom? Well, then you need this! While washstands are a fairly common element in most bathrooms, you can easily create a difference by choosing the right style. For instance, for small bathroom spaces, it’s best to stay away the modern pedestal basin. Instead, get a traditional sink installed on metal washstand. Since the wall and floor are visible below the basin, it makes the bathroom appear bigger.
- Add a Hint of Style with Elegant Shower Rails
Love freestanding baths but worry about getting the floor wet? Install a vintage or ultra-modern circular metal curtain rail atop the bath. Make sure the shower rose matches the style of the shower curtain rail, to create a uniform look.
- Revamp Your Cabinets
No remodeling project is complete without optimizing the storage space. For bathrooms, this means replacing old cabinets with latest wall-mounted cabinets. This will not only provide the necessary storage space but also add a stylish touch to your bathroom.
- Upgrade the Fittings
This is almost a no-brainer, but we often tend to miss out on the small things such as good quality fittings. Installing designer fittings can make your bathroom look luxurious. They may be more expensive than regular fittings but hey, they’ll be good for many many years. Trust me, it’s an investment worth making!
- Play With Mirrors
Big or small, these essential accessories can always make a bathroom look more glamorous. Mirrors vary greatly in cost, but that’s your call. You may want to hang a number of cheaper plain-edged designs or splurge on one big, elaborate Victorian showstopper. Whatever it is, make sure it’s in sync with the décor.
If you’ve been planning a bathroom remodeling for some time, these tips and trends will help you get started on the right foot.
