Are you wondering about the hot bathroom trends for 2016? We’ve compiled a list of them, using insights we discovered from a variety of different sources: residential architects, trade associations, remodeling companies, contractors, interior designers, real estate agents, real estate stagers, retailers and their bestseller lists, Internet search query trend data and homeowners who are remodeling.
For 2016 consumers are interested in the following bathroom elements:
Built-in bathtubs are declining in popularity. Freestanding bathtubs are the preferred bathtub of choice among 2016’s trendsetters.
When you’re initially designing your bathroom layout, freestanding tubs offer a lot of flexibility in their placement. Interestingly, some people are choosing to put their freestanding tubs inside their shower areas.
White is one of the top bathroom colors for 2016. White bathroom fixtures are in strong demand, as are white bathroom tiles and bath accessories as well. White is an outstanding color to use in your bathroom no matter what your style, whether it’s modern, contemporary, traditional or transitional.
Grey has been a trendy color for the past few years, and it’s still going strong for 2016. If plain grey or a combination of grey and white doesn’t excite you much, remember that grey can take on any other color as an undertone. As a result, if you’re careful in contemplating the undertones of the specific paint colors you’ll be using in your color scheme, you can combine grey with just about any other color you might want to use in your bathroom. For example, we’ve been seeing a lot of grey and turquoise combinations around; this works because the greys being used are greenish-bluish-greys that complement the turquoise perfectly.
HOTSPOT HAVEN BATHROOMS/BOUTIQUE-STYLE BATHROOMS
The bathrooms are now a huge focal point in the overall design of the interior space. For instance the main en-suite bathroom is being treated increasingly as an extension of the master bedroom. Bathrooms are larger and far more open and we expect this trend to continue. The bathroom will become more of a social wellness centre, where the focus is on relaxation and where a couple can interact.
POLISHED METAL FINISHES
In 2016, expect more polished metal finishes and less matte. Brass has been a hit for this year, but you can go full-on metal come 2016. From gold, silver, platinum, stainless, brushed steel – metals sure will be back in full strength. These finishes are perfect to grace you cabinet knobs and even your faucets.
Say goodbye to beige and white, and say hello to black! Dramatic colors will so be back for the year 2016, so look forward to black tiles, dramatic lighting and stark contrasts to hit bathrooms this coming year.
