Are you thinking of giving your bathroom a face lift in the New Year? The top bathroom design trends of 2016 run the gamut from functional to fabulous. Check out our favorites and get ready to update your remodeling wish-list:
Double sinks are being replaced by a sleeker, more elegant alternative: trough sinks. The long basins with multiple spouts look chic in master bathrooms, adding a modern touch to the design aesthetic.
Spa shower retreats
Spa-like upgrades will make your shower a relaxing retreat in 2016. Luxurious features like shower seats, steam shower heads, adjustable mood lighting and waterproof music systems will compel you to keep that bathroom door locked for just a while longer.
Pops of color
Bone and gray have ruled in the past, but bold colors will take over in 2016 and beyond. Use a focal wall to tastefully inject a touch of striking personality with colors that speak to your personal design preferences.
Warm-colored metals will stand out in 2016. Expect to see fixtures and features in brass and copper more frequently within the pages of your favorite home improvement magazines.
Say goodbye to built-in tubs. Freestanding tubs made from a variety of materials, from stone to porcelain to glass, serve as functional pieces of art. They are bold, beautiful and in-demand with buyers.
Zone tile designs make it easy and stylish to highlight different features in a bathroom. Showcase your shower or tub, for example, by patterning your tile like an area rug.
Heated flooring is a particularly welcome luxury in chilly climates. If you’re looking to sell your home in the New Year, consider this fairly affordable upgrade.
Homeowners are demanding environmentally conscious design, making bamboo flooring and other organic materials popular options in bathrooms. Similarly, low-flow technologies in showers, toilets, tubs and sinks are a must. The ultimate eco-chic upgrade? A stunning living wall plush with plant life.
