As far as home remodeling projects goes, bathroom remodeling continues to dominate the renovation field, even more so than kitchen remodeling. With so many choices, materials and resources available on the market, it can be difficult to find just the right ones to suit your style; therefore, the main trends of 2016 in bathroom remodeling might help your research on the topic.
Contemporary and modern style bathrooms are more popular these days than traditional and classic designs. Modern styles are so popular among many homeowners who are remodeling their bathrooms, as they offer many attractive features and they can be done for a fairly low budget. Considering this, here are the most popular bathroom remodeling trends, in case you’re thinking about starting a home remodeling project this year.
Emphasize one feature in your bathroom
Consider creating a focal point that catches the eye when you walk into the room. Freestanding tubs and walk – in showers are just two examples of how you can use this trend to your benefit. Think of your bathroom features as pieces of clothing used as statement pieces that are meant to generate attention.
Showers with frameless heavy – glass enclosures give the appearance of a luxury spa that you can have right at your home. Bright colors, tubs or vanities are always a good way to emphasize a main feature in your bathroom. New tubs can be installed at a very reasonable price, so you don’t have to break the bank to create a new design in your bathroom.
Updating the hardware is a great way to add a visual interest and a new style to any room. Brushed nickel and bronze are two metals very in trend in 2016, as they come in various colors and textures. Brass tones in a warm – colored copped are also having a comeback in bathroom remodeling. Updating the faucets and the shower hardware will create the appearance of a high – end bathroom at a very low cost.
As for light fixtures, they are no longer used just to brighten up a space. They’re installed with another purpose in mind, to create focal points in the bathroom. You can install even large or bold pieces that offer a certain personality to the room. Even chandeliers or clusters of hand – blown globes are chosen for bathrooms, although they’re more suite for larger, more glamorous bathrooms.
Modern walls and tiles
Tiles are apparently coming in fashion again. Modern wall tiles with floral design, creative shapes or bright colors are replacing neutral, “safe” options for the bathroom. By replacing the tiles, it’s easy and fun to use your creativity to bring some of your personal style into the bathroom.
Subway tiles are another interesting option for the bathroom, as they’re water resistant, attractive and durable. Moreover, they’re been used for more than a century in homes all over the world, and this just shows that lasting elegance is always in fashion.
Currently, the most popular subway tile colors are bright white, slate gray or cobalt blue. You can also mix and match colors to create unique designs.
Raised panel cabinets
The cabinets are an essential part of any bathroom remodel, as a design element and as functional storage spaces. Raised panel doors are very popular right now, for bath or vanity cabinets, regardless if they have a wooden finish or if they’re made out of glass.
Heated floors are certainly a luxury item for a bathroom remodeling, but if you have the budget, you should consider splurging a little. Especially in colder climates, they’re allowing homeowners to keep the temperature in their homes lower during the winter season, without worrying that the floors are too cold. Ceramic and porcelain tiles are the most popular choices of material for heated floors in bathrooms.
There you go, these are some of the most popular bathroom remodeling trends for 2016. Use some of these ideas to upgrade the features you think need a little upgrade. After all, it’s your bathroom and you will enjoy it, so make sure you choose something that best fits your style.
