Five Remodeling Trends to Transform Your Bathroom

Five Remodeling Trends to Transform Your Bathroom

BY Theresa Ulrich On

A bathroom renovation has the power to transform your daily routine. The right changes can streamline the time you spend getting ready and provide you with a haven where you can release your cares at the end of a long day. And, many of the top bathroom remodeling trends of the year are rooted in adding ease and comfort.

When incorporated with quality materials and an eye for excellence, the following five trends can become more than just fads. Done right, they’ll not only refresh the look of your space, but increase its functionality and beauty as well. When worked seamlessly into your remodel with the expertise of an experienced design-build team, trends take on timeless excellence.

1. Open Layouts

The room where many of us choose to unwind is increasingly becoming a place where we want to spread out, and open layouts reflect that. Floor plans that make space for open showers and bigger, freestanding tubs are growing in popularity as modern bathrooms become not only practical spaces but soothing sanctuaries.

2. High-Tech Features

As is the case in so many areas of our lives, innovations in tech designed to make like easier and more comfortable are showing up in the bathroom. Upgraded toilets with features such as heated seats, automatic lid openers and air dryers are becoming more common, as are faucets with touchless technology and voice-activated lights and temperature controls. In addition, innovations designed for fun are making a splash. Bluetooth speaker systems and waterproof TVs allow you to bring entertainment into your time getting ready or chilling out.

3. Creative Hidden Storage

One of the most practical trends this year centers around putting the things you need right where you need them, often while hiding them from plain sight. Cabinets in nontraditional shapes and locations are making the most of previously unused spaces, and custom features are giving homeowners storage solutions that truly meet their needs. These creative options are designed to keep you organized and control clutter without distracting from the look of your bathroom. 

4. Pops of Blue

Blue is big in 2020! Pantone’s color of the year, “Classic Blue,” reflects the shade that’s showing up in numerous areas of the home—and the bathroom is no exception. Blue hues are known for their ability to invoke a sense of security and calm, and where better than the room where we’re the most vulnerable to call upon its ability to soothe? From more classic expressions like navy paint to bolder choices like turquoise-colored tile, a wide range of blue touches are making an impact. 

5. Sustainability

Eco-friendly choices have been growing in popularity for a number of years, and they continue to trend as advances in technology make it easier to save energy and resources. Motion-sensing lights and sinks make it easier to conserve, and water-saving toilets have become more efficient, scaling back on water use without sacrificing function. In addition, recycled and renewable materials are increasingly in demand, leading to a wider range of stylish options for any taste.
