Even though we’re a couple months into the new year, it is still timely to provide insight on several trends associated with bathroom remodeling for 2020.
When considering a bath renovation project, there are several design concepts that have gained in popularity and should be considered for your space.
Private Vanity Mirror Divide
The installation of two sinks allows for two people to be in the bathroom at the same time with the necessary space for all of their toiletries. Using the vanity and mirror as the focal point for the space will assist you in identifying the other accents that will be incorporated into the overall design.
Adding bold colors to the bathroom is an inexpensive way to personalize the space. Some options to consider include light green, which offers a spring or summer feel, and orange, which adds warmth. Matte black offers a counter to white accessories while blue complements spaces that feature more accoutrements.
With sufficient storage space being an important feature, an emerging trend is using existing items, such as cabinets, vanities, or shelves and placing additional storage within it. For example, a vanity can feature extra sections for more personal items. Shower curtains are now designed with fitted mesh space organizers for shampoo, conditioner, soap, etc.
A regular inconvenience when using a bathroom at night is the cold floors, but as a result of improvements in electrical technology, heated floors have become increasingly popular. There are two options to consider.
- Hydronic Heat: a rubber tube system is installed throughout the home, circulating the heat from the water heater.
- Electric Heat: a thin panel is ensconced under the bathroom floor and is regulated by the home’s thermostat and a timer.
For those seeking additional isolation, hidden toilets are separated from the rest of the bathroom by either a door or miniature wall. Typically moderately designed, these areas usually have the same wallcovering as the rest of the bathroom, but there are those that include accents to make the space more individualized for those that will use it.
Offering an opportunity to utilize different design concepts, this bathroom wall provides a juxtaposition to the rest of the space. Popular elements to incorporate into the room include natural stone, brick, tile, and marble. A dramatically different color paint on the wall or a wall-sized mirror are other options.
The use of small chandeliers or hanging fixtures can modify the space and its mood through the use of a dimmer switch. Another options is creating your own fixtures, allowing you to show off your personality.
Plants to Accent Color
Adding live plants not only can break up the space, but they add color and life to the room. In addition, a number of plant varieties thrive in a bathroom as a result of the low light, high humidity, and general warmth.
