If you’re considering making renovations to your bathrooms, or if you simply want to update your current design, these new ideas will help you get a little more return on your efforts.
The bathroom design trends for 2015 may have familiar themes as before, but they’re taking luxury, functionality, and space efficiency to new levels. Take a look below for new design trends to get your design ideas flowing!
A New Bathing Experience
The freestanding bathtub isn’t an entirely new concept, but it’s growing in popularity as homeowners are discovering its benefits in both function and style.
Freestanding bathtubs can be used as a centerpiece in your bathroom’s design. There are a variety of models that can be used to match your design theme, making it a versatile option for your new home.
But bathtubs aren’t taking the entire spotlight. Large walk-in showers have also become a popular design trend in 2015. Many are investing in the space required to install a larger shower while reaping the benefits of a more spacious and open look.
Details for the Bathroom
Using bathroom fixtures as focal points to set the tone of the room is also a trending in 2015. Homeowners are taking advantage of a variety of materials to modernize the look of their bathrooms. Brushed nickel, chrome and bronze are just a few of the more popular materials being used for fixtures.
With this new design trend, homeowners are adding complimentary metals to traditional stainless steel fixtures, and it’s providing new ways to create beautiful bathroom designs.
The functionality of fixtures has also taken a more modern approach. Automatic faucets, which work through the use of sensors, have helped minimize the design of many bathroom sinks while adding more functionality. This offers a minimal aesthetic that helps to open up the entire bathroom, and can provide a more efficient use of water.
Less is More
The idea of doing more with less has gone beyond bathroom fixtures. Although standalone bathtubs are becoming more popular, other homeowners are opting to get rid of the bathtub altogether. Although this saves design costs, many people choose to be more aware of the amount of water they use. This has made bathtubs less of a necessity for the resource-conscious homeowner.
This minimalist approach is influenced by the Asian styles that have entered into the bathroom designs of 2015. Using natural materials, automatic faucets, and a more earth-friendly design approach, homeowners are turning their bathrooms into mini-spas, which is ideal for newer homes with a contemporary design.
In general, designers are moving towards a cleaner look, focusing on simplicity and function. The result is a new wave of design trends that you’ll be seeing more of in the future.
