Your bathroom is one of the most important spaces in your house, as a place to refresh and renew. So, it is important to keep your bathroom up to date with designs from minor improvements to extensive remodels to revitalize your space for the ultimate at home spa experience. In addition to creating a luxurious experience, updating a bathroom also adds resale value. Keep reading for four bathroom remodel and design considerations to gain inspiration.
Lighting is Key
Focusing on lighting during bathroom remodels can be a great way to improve the functionality of the space, and to create a customized experience. For example, if taking baths are a common part of your nighttime routine, dimming lights can set the mood and create the ultimate luxurious ambiance. Or if you frequently are creating full glamor looks, having a vanity with backlit mirrors might be a necessity. Also, allowing for as much natural light as possible is a great way to bring warmth into your bathroom design. You can also use lighting to infuse your personality into the space with the types of fixtures you choose.
Embrace Textures and Tiles
Choosing tile is one of the most important steps during a bathroom remodel and expected style trends are not shying away from eclectic and adventurous designs. Tile is an easy and fun way to experiment with different colors, shapes, and textures whether they’re on shower walls, floors, countertops, or backsplashes. Choosing tile that is smaller and textured for your shower floor is increasingly popular and great to safeguard against slippery floors. Another way to experiment is with placement of tiles, with a popular style installing ceiling-height tile on the wall above your bathroom counter. You can do a contrasting look with darker tiles against a lighter counter, herringbone pattern when laying tiles, or a more monochromatic harmonious look.
Another popular bathroom remodel trend is incorporating natural and organic elements into your space. You can see this through the shapes of your fixtures such as shower heads, sinks, and toilets. Creating more simple shapes and designs in your bathroom remodel can be a great way to emulate a luxurious spa and create a relaxing atmosphere. Bring the outdoors inside with natural elements like jute rugs or nature-inspired wallpaper. Adding a freestanding tub has become more and more popular over the years, as they are the epitome of luxury and can provide relaxing soaks. But they also create a focal point of your bathroom’s design and choosing a tub with more organic lines will center the natural aesthetic of the room nicely.
Opening Up Space
According to the National Kitchen and Bath Association’s 2022 report on Top 2023 Bathroom Design Trends, bathroom remodel trends are increasingly involving opening up the room whether that’s through removing bathtubs, walls, or adding square footage. Over 75 percent of respondents reported removing a bathtub to create larger showers. However, respondents who were keeping or installing tubs, most transitioned to free-standing. Removing walls and adding space for a closet, laundry, or getting ready area were two of the most popular trends in the report. Another trend we have seen this year is an increase in requests for “wet spaces.” This is where the shower and tub are in one large area together and glassed in.
