Bathroom and Spa Retreat Design Trends

You Can Make Your Bathroom a Spa Retreat with These Trends

Are you thinking of renovating your bathroom? If you have, you may have wondered how to incorporate a spa atmosphere into this sacred space, even if you don’t have a lot of room. Don’t fear. Rosseland Remodeling can help you design the perfect bathroom remodel that will meet your needs and your budget. Take a look at the top trends of 2018, many of which you can easily incorporate into your bathroom retreat.

What About Color?

Monochromes are still in, particularly black, white and grey and variations thereof. However, if you don’t like that, choose neutrals in tans and light browns or even better yet, blue is poised to take a hold in 2018. Opt for the last if you want to make a statement. The all-white bathroom is out. Choose a variation on a light palette if you want to make a small space look bigger.

Open and Airy

As your sanctuary, you want to make your bath a place for relaxation. If you have the space, one solution is to expand the space by downsizing adjacent rooms, but if you don’t’ have the square footage or the budget, there are other solutions to open the area.. Design is a big part of the equation, no matter what the size of your bathroom renovation. By using large tile, mirrors and bright colors, you can create a sense of openness.

Spice Up Your Tile

Speaking of tile, if you want to make a statement, don’t use plain old, solid tile. Texture, color, pattern and unique designs are taking over tile trends. Experiment with a unique tile to make your bathroom stand out.

Hardware and Surfaces

Brass is back! This 80’s staple can add comforting and warm tones to your bathroom when paired with the right design elements. If you’re not ready for brass, try rose gold or stay with chrome or brushed satin.

Practical Showers

Open showers have become increasingly popular and in many instances are replacing bathtubs altogether. Consider installing a zero-threshold shower to along with options such as a bench, a steam system, anti-fog mirror and more. Little touches such as shelves or crevices to hold shampoo, shower gel or soap can save space and are affordable. Glass doors and walls are a popular choice as they provide a feeling of spaciousness, are easy to maintain and adapt to all decor styles.

Don’t Forget the Storage

The minimalist trend of the past several years kept storage areas small, but drawers, cabinets and shelves are back and an important part of a well-designed bathroom. Hiding storage is another option, especially if you want to create an impression of a clean, large space. Self- supporting vanities without legs are always a good option.
