At some point in the past three decades “the bathroom proper” evolved from being a purely utilitarian and unglamorous space which one visited only out of necessity: to wash one’s hands, draw a bath, as well as to relieve other, more pressing, needs. All that’s changed today, of course, as the bathroom has been elevated to priority status among homeowners, builders, and designers. In fact, the bathroom is often the first room (along with the kitchen) that gets the most urgent attention from new home buyers. Let’s take a look at just a couple of the bathroom trends impacting home design in 2015.
Creature comfort meets contemporary design
Today’s homeowners want the best of both worlds. They want cozy, comfy features that make the bathroom a true destination to linger longer. And they also want a sleek, contemporary feel that blends with their particular style of house design. Above all, the Master Bath goes beyond mere functionality to complement the overall personality and feel of your living experience. When done right, the bathroom transforms itself into a dynamic living space that increases the value of your home. Below are a few trends we are highlighting courtesy of Decorator’s Wisdom, 10 Hot Bathroom Design Trends for 2015.
Expansive walk-in showers
Updated metallic features
Efficient water-saving toilets
Radiant heated floors
Hand-held showers (and rain showers)
Soft LED Lighting
These are just a few of the hot trends you will want to consider — trends that will add comfort, style, and value to your bathroom — today, and over time.
