2016 bathroom design trends

Metallic in the Bathroom

This is not referring to just metallic on your plumbing fixtures. This is metallic sinks, metallic wallpaper, metallic tile, the list could go on and on.

Metallic sinks – several of the upscale manufacturers of bathroom sinks have come out with metallic sinks. Some are as dainty and feminine looking as fine china, while others appear more rustic and masculine, such as the hammered antique copper sink.

Metallic wallpaper – The look of metallic wallpaper can add the appearance of luxury to your bathroom. It now comes to suit most color schemes, as well as being florals, geometrics and abstracts.

Metallic Tiles – It doesn’t need to be a whole wall of metallic tile (although there is nothing wrong with that.) but how about a backsplash of copper or mirror-polished stainless steel subway tile?

For real elegance, you could have a silver soaker tub!

Color – Beige is Out

Beige has had a long and strong run, but it is on its way out. Beige is such an accommodating color, that it will never be completely out, but come on beige, make room for some other colors!

White on white is a hot trend right now. It may sound boring, but it actually has a real elegance. Plus if your personal taste requires more color, it is easy to add colored linens and accessories.

As with every other room in the house, gray is becoming very trendy for the bathroom. Gray also plays so well with other colors, that you can go absolutely any direction with gray. Gray is the new beige.

Black and white are a timeless combination. To this, add some red, some blue, whatever color you love.

When you keep your high-ticket items the basic colors, you can easily change the accessories to keep up with the current trends without doing a complete remodel every couple of years.

Pick a Focal Point

Where do you want your guest’s eye to fall when they walk into your bathroom? Is it the beautiful new freestanding, metallic, soaking tub? Then frame it with tiles, or call the eye to it with beautiful wall finishes behind it. Drape your most luxurious bath linens over the side. Use anything beautiful to draw the eye. Do you want the eye drawn to the vanity? Dress it up with come candles and luxurious lotions.

Whatever way you choose to express it, the trend in bathroom design for 2016 is LUXURY. Call Duane Blanton Plumbing Sewer & Drainage Inc. at (815) 781-2567  to schedule renovations in your Round Lake, IL home!
