If you’re the type of person who likes a little style with your function, then you’re ready to hear about some of the top bathroom remodeling trends for 2019.
There’s no doubt that bathrooms are functional spaces. But that doesn’t mean they have to be spartan, or shockingly utilitarian. Bathrooms are places of quiet reflection and self-care. They should reflect the more sublime elements of being human as much as they should the mundane.
Let’s look at the top bathroom remodeling trends for 2019 and set our sights on the sublime.
The Warmth of Wood
With the trend to open, classically-styled vanities, comes the concurrent desire to feature more of that woody goodness with flooring.
No. Wood isn’t a good fit for wet bathrooms. But now, there’s a new product which mimics the appearance of wood. This type of porcelain tile is a trending topic in the world of bathroom design and can be produced to look like any type of wood from cedar to pine.
What could be more comforting than having the warmth of wood as part of your bathroom experience?
The Big Splash
The shower may seem perfunctory to some but it’s the most popular way to bathe in the world. But many still love their bathtubs, so they’re hiving them off entirely from their showers, creating stand-alone showers and free-standing tubs. This combination creates an air of ultimate luxury.
But for those who have little interest in bathing, the new trend towards much larger showers is the answer. Employing the standard footprint of a bathtub, the big splash shower may involve a bench, is tiled to the ceiling for maximum impact and features a shower door with minimal hardware.
Clean, striking and very, very now.
Subway tiles have been the “go to” tiles in bathrooms since their rediscovery as a sleek design element. But this year, the Mid-Century is back to make its ultra-chic impact on bathrooms, with retro tile designs.
Shapes and colors reflect the period aesthetic and many remodels employ tile for the entire room, recalling a shower stall. This trend works well with the big splash shower.
Not Your Special Moment? Fear Not
So, you’re reading this because you’re in the planning stage and not the deployment stage. No worries, you can start now, with décor.
Switch out items like towels, soap dishes and dispensers and even the toothbrush holder. Contrast them to your planned re-model for a fresh, designer start.
But if your hardware budget’s in place, there’s no reason you can’t get started with exposed, industrial copper piping. A huge trend, it extends to your fixtures, lending a casual sophistication to your private oasis.
