Renovating your bathroom is an investment of both time and money — so make sure you do some research before you start. Create a budget and take the time to find the right handyman professional first, then make sure you have a clear vision of how you want your updated space to work, look, and feel.
If you’re in need of some inspiration before you hire a handyman or handywoman, take a look at these six bathroom trends for some great ideas.
Timber is not a thing of the past; it is popular in bathroom renovations. It brings natural warmth to a place where timber was previously viewed as taboo. Timber is quite versatile and can be used in various ways in the bathroom — it even looks great on walls.
Keep it calm.
Cool and serene tones in the bath create a relaxing and tranquil environment. Think of implementing light blues and soft greens, paired with crisp white or touches of wood. These colors give a bathroom a fresh and uplifting vibe you will love.
Add innovative tile patterns.
Basic tiles are in the spotlight, but with a twist. Think of timeless tiles such as white subway, laid in unusual patterns to create some interest. Expect to see more and more of herringbone design, basketweave, and windmill patterns in the future. These designs add visual interest to any bathroom.
Go au naturale.
In addition to natural wood, there are more materials you’ll be seeing a lot of. Earthy natural stone and river rock are showing up in places such as vanity tops, sinks, bathtubs, and even feature walls. The natural materials contrast with each other and offer tactile texture in the bath — a room that is becoming a sanctuary.
Double headers are growing in popularity, and more people are putting in a setup of an oversized rain shower head and a separate handset instead of a typical dual shower heads mounted on the same bar. This configuration creates a luxurious shower and provides a chic look without adding visual bulk.
Metal has been a huge interior trend the last few years. It has risen quickly and it isn’t going anywhere. Metal is glamorous and provides a beautiful contrast with natural materials. Metals with matte or satin finishes are taking over and the polished look is being left behind.
When it comes to revamping your bath, focus on creating ambiance. The bathroom should be functional, but also provide an escape. Think along the lines of bathrooms with custom features, mood lighting, and functional elements, and you get today’s dream bathroom.
