Bathroom renovations and restorations require a considerable amount of time, energy and resources. Sometimes even a simple re-tiling job can takes ages, and then there is the endless lineup of choices on offer for those looking to add a new vanity, bathtub or even a glass shower zone. It does help though if you have an understanding of what you want, what works in your bathroom and what are the hottest trends in bathroom design at the present time.
If you want your bathroom to be decorated in light tones, but would still like your vanity to stand out, choose a cream colored interior and pair it with a bright white vessel sink for the effect of gentle contrast.
Black and white powder rooms still allow you to add a fair bit of color, and because of the neutral backdrop, every little drop of color makes a big visual impact. Maybe this is one of the biggest reasons for the popularity of the color scheme in bathrooms as well. You can just alter the accent additions (stuff like towels, floor mats and maybe even those flowers on the vanity) with changing seasonal trends to give the powder room a completely different vibe. One color that never seems to fail when coupled with black and white in the powder room is gold! When in doubt, turn to golden-tinted accessories to enliven and enrich the mundane powder room.
If we have to sum up the direction of current bathroom design trends in a single statement, then it would be “a desire among homeowners to find a relaxing, revitalizing and nature-centric retreat at home”. Timber definitely fits this billing, and it has made a grand comeback in 2018. Incorporating wood into the bathroom is no longer a taxing affair that keeps you constantly on the edge because you are perpetually worried about damage from moisture and infestation. Contemporary solutions even provide space for cheaper and eco-friendly reclaimed wood accent features that will serve you well for years to come.
We start off our spotlight on trendy bathroom mirrors with a series that moves away from the usual and goes down a different geometric path. Instead of those mundane mirrors with simple, straight lines, try out a more dashing frame that makes bold visual impact even while easily blending in with the modern or contemporary style of your bathroom. Hexagonal and octagonal-framed mirrors are currently a trend and are making their way into bathrooms across the world. If you feel that these geo shapes are a bit too tacky, then opt for the simple round mirror – a classic that never fails.
Summer and tropical style is a match made in design heaven, and it is barely a surprise that as each time the warmer months roll in, everyone wants to tap into a bit of tropical richness and beauty. Once again, you need not completely alter the style of the bathroom and adopt a tropical-centric look just for the sake of a few months. Instead, usher in elements from the style like lush green plants with their giant leaves, natural finishes like bamboo blinds or a rattan stool, or maybe lighting fixtures inspired by the tropics. Mixing modern and tropical styles is pretty easy, and often the result is truly spectacular.
