According to studyfinds.org, the amount of time that the average person spends in the bathroom adds up to the equivalent of 416 days of their life. Being that we will spend over a year of our lives in one small room of our house, we should at least make it an enjoyable place to be.
Life is too short to be unhappy with your bathroom and not everyone can afford to buy a new place, so we have just the solution: remodel! Whether you’re looking to spruce up your bathroom with modern amenities or want a complete makeover, we are here to help you achieve your dream bathroom goals. But first, you might want to check out this year’s hottest bathroom trends.
1. Black is the New Black
In recent years, grey has been all the rage, but its time has come to an end. Black is officially back. Now, just because you may have painted your walls a lovely grey color last season, that doesn’t mean you have to make a bold statement by painting them black. Instead, you should look for more subtle ways of adding the color into your bathroom. Some of the most common ways people are doing this is by adding:
- Black light fixtures (hanging light fixtures are always fun)
- Black tiles
- Black vanities
Another popular and modern method of keeping up with this trend is using matte black. For example, matte black faucets, handles, shower heads and towel racks are becoming increasingly popular. They also won’t clash with the majority of wallpaper and paint colors. Do you count your bathroom door as part of the room? Well we do, so we suggest adding a matte black handle or knob to your privacy protector.
2. Smart Bathrooms
We have smartphones, smart cars and smart televisions, so why not smart bathrooms too?
Each year, technological developments make our lives a little more comfortable and definitely more convenient. So it comes as no shock that the next line of smart products are based around a room that we use multiple times a day.
Here are three of the most popular smart, bathroom products that we will see this year.
Smart Toilets -These toilets have features such as touchless flushing, automatic lids, nightlights, seat warmers and overflow protection. The most advanced ones also include self-cleansing features and speakers that connect to wifi.
Smart Showers - These showers usually connect to smart home systems and allow users to set and save their perfect shower. Users are able to program the shower to include their ideal temperature, flow and duration preferences.
Automatic Sinks - Although automatic sinks are not a new invention, we have not seen them introduced into the home until recently.
3. Bigger is Better and Trendier
The old saying, “the bigger, the better,” directly applies to this year’s bathroom trends. Spacious bathrooms with large features are on the top of every remodeler’s list. Large bathtubs and open showers have some of the highest demand levels.
With this trend, we are seeing bathtubs becoming the centerpiece of the bathroom. However, unlike in the past, people are choosing large, freestanding basin tubs instead of Jacuzzi style tubs.
Many people are using the big, open shower trend as a way of making their bathrooms appear larger. With this trend, there is no need to worry about finding the perfect shower curtain to complement your bathroom. Open showers also limit the risk of slipping when getting out of the tub.
Can’t decide among getting a tub, an open shower or both? We have all the facts you need.
4. Wonderful Wallpaper
Whether you are looking to make a bold statement or want to add a splash of color to your bathroom, wallpaper is the way to go. This season, when it comes to wallpaper, is all about loud patterns and fun graphics.
The transition from paint to wallpaper might be scary for some, but we are here to calm your nerves. As we mentioned earlier, technology is constantly advancing in all fields, including wallpaper. Some companies are offering peel and stick wallpapers to remove the hassle and fear that accompany glue.
If you really want to be a trailblazer when it comes to the latest bathroom trends, give a black- patterned wallpaper a try. If not, a splash of color is always fun too.
5. Heated Floors
Heated floors. Who doesn’t like the sound of that? The most common type of heated flooring involves a system of electric currents running through coils under your tiles. Although, this can be a bit pricey, you’ll be thankful for it when winter comes.
Remodeling can be time consuming and expensive, so it is important to have a clear vision for what you want and a budget to go along with it. Finding the right people to do the job is equally important and that’s where we come in.
