Staying on top of bathroom remodeling trends can seem like a full-time job. Each year, new features and fixtures become popular and you see them popping up in bathroom remodels on TV, in magazines and your neighborhood. If you’re considering a bathroom remodel soon, let us walk you through some of the upcoming trends for 2015. Some of our favorites include:
- Walk-In Showers
Out with the old shower and bathtub combination and in with the new sleek, expansive walk-in shower! Because many people are shying away from taking baths, bathtubs are starting to be replaced by large, spacious walk-in showers. Walk-in showers are perfect for open concept bathrooms and also make the bathroom accessible to seniors and those with disabilities.
Bonus Trend: Stand-Alone Bathtubs
Just because walk-in showers are popular, it doesn’t mean that the bathtub is completely out of style. Recently, we’ve seen bathtubs added as a stand-alone fixture. This change to the bathroom layout is not only fun, but practical too.
- Quartz Countertops
If you watch HGTV at all, you might get the idea that granite is the only type of stone countertop out there. But, there are many more stone options! One of the most popular for bathrooms in 2015 is quartz. It’s durable, scratch resistant and doesn’t require sealing like granite. Even better, it comes in more colors than granite, so it’s perfect for any bathroom color scheme or style.
- Dark Tiles
White subway tiles have come and gone. They used to be everywhere, but in 2015 you will see bathroom tiles taking a moodier, darker turn. If you want to add a dramatic statement to your bathroom, this is a trend to consider.
- Contemporary Style
If you’re thinking about an update, forget about the rustic, cottage-like décor that used to be popular. It’s out. Contemporary is the new way to go, thanks to the style’s clean lines and simplicity. It’s also a great choice for making spaces feel more luxurious and less cluttered.
