Is bathroom remodeling your first big project for the new year? By improving your bathroom’s comfort and efficiency, you might be starting 2018 on the right foot. After all, the bathroom is where we all start and end the day. The space must make you feel calm, relaxed, and refreshed.
Industry professionals are projecting several bathroom design trends for 2018 that could help you achieve this goal. See what you think of them, then ask your trusted Atlanta contractor how you can fit them into your home.
Organic is idyllic
If bathrooms provide a sanctuary, it’s no wonder natural and nature-inspired elements are set to trend this year. When a full day in bustling urban Atlanta has worn you down, how could you not welcome the feel of organic materials beneath your hands and feet?
A few elements that can make it into more bathrooms this year include:
- Wooden floors, walls, and cladding
- Hand-carved stone sinks
- Small house plants and succulents
Whether used in rustic or urban styles, these elements add a touch of flair and tranquility to a utilitarian space. It also helps that wood and stone are prime materials for minimalism. This is a design aesthetic you should consider if you want a bathroom that relaxes your body and declutters your mind.
Mute it with it monochrome
Another way to declutter the mind is to declutter vision. That can mean doing away with vibrant hues and elaborate color schemes: bringing the muted and monochromatic back in.
Note that “monochromatic” doesn’t have to mean boring. Your entire bathroom could only feature shades of a single color yet still look interesting. You can do that by mixing up hues and playing off base and accent shades through textured walls and geometric tiles. An experienced bathroom remodeling designer can advise you just how.
Space is king
Redoing a room for a fashionable aesthetic is all well and good, but remodeling for functionality is always a great move. This year, expect more remodelers to zero in on a practical goal: creating more space.
They can do this by taking advantage of:
- Unused corners
- Ceiling heights
- Crannies below eye level
- Space-saving furniture
Have you noticed any of these in your bathroom? Making the most of them will not only give you more room to move about or store things. it can also open new sightlines and pathways to give your bathroom an entirely new feel.
Taking on technology
Lastly, despite the move towards nature-inspired bathrooms, remodelers may also be integrating more technologies into the space. This can take the form of automated shower and sink controls, innovative heater designs, water-saving toilets with heated seats, or even full-fledged personal spas. If a gizmo can add to your comfort and your home’s efficiency, a bathroom remodeling specialist can work it in.
