Towards the end of 2019 and leading into 2020 we witnessed a few different trends taking place. Bathrooms were becoming more modern and providing more of a comfortable feel to it. This is done by adding space which ultimately adds functionality. Anytime we can take part in a bathroom remodel, we do so, because it is always exciting seeing the finished product. If you are remodeling your bathroom this year, consider updating to heavy glass and keep these trends in mind as well.
Open Concept Plans
Newer bathrooms are being designed to have an open and breathable space. These open concepts make smaller rooms feel much roomier. There is no longer a need for those clunky cupboards full of junk. New modern bathrooms have just enough cupboard space to hold the necessities. This shelving is often times tucked away in the corners or installed higher on the walls. They also have been moving away from framed glass doors and have been installing heavy glass shower doors. These let a decent amount of light into the room because they no longer have any frames blocking the view. With the absence of shower frames, it gives your eyes the perception that the room is larger and more spacious than it actually is.
Neutral Tones with a Pop
Neutral tones add a relaxing and timeless feel to any design. Current styles lean toward more natural stone and wood surfaces with matte textured metal fixtures and paint. However, complementing these neutral tones are accents of color that can be seen along a single wall, a backsplash, or mingled with the tile. Small murals, a section of wallpaper, potted plants or a framed painting can add a nice focal point without making the room look too busy.
A “Water Space” is the section of the bathroom with a floor drain that is usually dedicated to a bathtub or open shower. This spot is typically walled off with heavy glass shower doors. These glass shower doors help with the open concept idea by keeping the look open but also containing the water.
