Trends will always be ever-changing and cycling around one another, but for bathrooms this spring, the trendy wheel has landed on a combination of industrial design with statement accents and advancing technology.
Exposed Shower Plumbing
Keeping plumbing inside of the walls is so last year. Contractors and plumbers are now opting to leave the pipe, giving your shower a more industrial feel. In addition to exposed plumbing, mechanical levers are being used as the handles to turn the shower on and off as well as adjusting the temperature.
Matte Black Accents
Matte black is a bold, yet expected trend. It wasn’t too long ago that all white everything was on trend, but now, the matte black look provides a sleek, incomparable elevated style. Accents such as faucets, hooks, towel racks, window frames, and even mirrors are being used to create a stark contrast that pops, but in the right way.
Typically marbling in consisted of a neutral color weaves with thin lines of an opposing color: think of your standard white and grey countertops. This year, marble is getting big. The countertops are staying the same size, but the streaks of color have expanded for you to appreciate their contrast. These statement marble pieces are busier than your standard marbling and therefore seem more appealing to the eye. It requires bathrooms to have less decoration while still keeping a simple aesthetic.
There is a reason Dorothy wanted to bring Toto with her. Okay, so her Toto was a dog, but she would have chosen the high tech toilet instead if it existed back then. Many toilet brands are also joining the high-tech lifestyle. Now, while doing your business, you can enjoy heated seats while listening to music. Upon finishing, you can choose to be sprayed clean to save the toilet paper you would use otherwise.
Wooden vanities will continue to be one of those things that cycle in and out of style. Currently, sleek light colored vanities are on trend. Paired with simple hardware, it gives a simplistic relaxing feeling to any bathroom.
