Top Bathroom Design Trends for 2016

If a bathroom renovation is on your list of things to do in 2016 then you should consider some of the newest trends that are gaining traction. 2016 will be the year of the bathroom and now is the time to start thinking about how you want to plan out your space. Let’s consider some of the top design trends.

Trend 1: Cool, Collected, and Calm

2016 will be the year to have your bathroom space be cool, collected, and calm. A tranquil bathroom is a place where everyone wants to spend their time and it will promote relaxation while you get ready for work or while you unwind in your tub after a long day.

To keep your bathroom cool and calm, you should consider painting it a soft colour and then using soft accents throughout the space to add some contrast and flare, but not too much.

Trend 2: Natural and Rustic

Picking up this year will be the rustic look with wood components throughout the bathroom and also the natural theme that uses stone. For example, a marble countertop with a natural stone sink will be one of the hottest trends taking off.

When you start to think about wood in the bathroom, you may be thinking about just the floors, but you can incorporate it onto the vanity, walls, sinks, and more.

Trend 3: Shelving: Open and Lots of It

Shelving is an important aspect in your bathroom, but if you have ever noticed, many bathrooms do not have shelving. Now is the time to start incorporating it into your bathroom renovation plans.

Open shelving systems are a great way to store the things you need while not closing them off to everyone else. The items you store on your shelves can range from towels to soap and more, but you should avoid clutter and only store a couple things on any one shelf at a time.

Trend 4: Freestanding Tubs

Freestanding tubs are gaining a lot of traction and for great reason – they are luxurious. If you do want to have a freestanding tub, make sure you let your contractor know before he starts your bathroom renovation project, as you do need to have special plumbing for it.

Trends have shown that many homeowners are moving away from tubs that are built into the walls with the alcove installation.

Trend 5: Heated Bathroom Floors

You know how cold your bathroom floor is first thing in the morning? Or how about when you step out of the shower? Well, your bathroom floors do not have to be cold anymore. In fact, many homeowners are choosing to have heated bathroom floors installed. These floors heat up automatically to warm the surface beneath your feet. In addition, the heated floors prevent moisture from building up in your bathroom as well.
