Remodeling bathroom trend this year seems to be incorporating more luxury and elegance into the practical functionality, transforming it into a home spa.
Colors: Choosing a color palette that best suits your home and personality is the first step to creating a comfortable, relaxing space. Whether you prefer a natural Earthy look or a more contemporary monochromatic look planning your colors will help determine the lighting and other fixtures.
Lighting: The type of lighting can enhance the ambiance of any room, particularly in the bathroom where space tends to be more confined. Simple overhead lighting may be sufficient to illuminate the room, but may be too harsh. Think about where you need the lighting and for what purpose. Brighter lighting around the mirror to aid in makeup application or shaving is helpful, while softer lighting around the tub can provide a more relaxing experience.
Countertops: The material used can add luxury and decadence while also providing practical workspace. With the variety of natural stone, manufactured quartz, tile, and other solid-surface materials there is no limit to the creative design options to consider.
Fixtures: Coordinating light plates, towel racks, and faucet designs for elegance and efficiency can greatly improve the appearance. Because bathrooms are smaller and meant to be functional every element should be thought of with that in mind.
Shower Enclosures: Installing glass doors and enclosures around your shower is a beautiful, practical alternative to shower curtains, but enclosures and dividers can come in a variety of materials. Often tiled walls and glass dividers tend to be easier to keep clean than shower curtains, which may need replacement over time.
