Home décor falls in and out of fashion, and the bathroom is no exception. If you feel it is time for an update, a trip to a bathroom showroom Baton Rouge may inspire you. However, it may also be a good idea to research the current trends before you go shopping so that you can figure out which may work well in your space. The following are examples of trends in bathroom fashion that are currently very popular.
1. Natural Wood
Natural wood gives your bathroom an appealing, spa-like appearance. You can use it as a wall covering, or you can choose a natural wood vanity as an accent piece.
2. Industrial Style
Highly decorative, stereotypically feminine “glam” bathrooms are on the way out and sleek, austere, arguably more masculine industrial bathrooms are in. The industrial style makes use of materials like concrete and metal. If a touch of industrial style is all you want, you can achieve that fairly easily by simply exposing the pipes.
3. Gray and Black
Traditionally, bathrooms have been decorated in bright colors, pure whites, or pastels. However, darker shades of gray and black can add depth, mystery, and modernity to space.
The downside is that bathrooms tend to be small spaces, and darker colors can make them feel cramped and claustrophobic. However, you can get around that by making the gray or black an accent in an otherwise bright-colored bathroom. They make a particularly striking contrast against white.
4. Floating Vanity
Apart from looking cool and futuristic, a floating vanity serves a practical purpose. It frees up space underneath the vanity for step stools, baby tubs, and other larger items that you might otherwise have a hard time storing.
5. Colored Tub
Certain aspects of bathroom fashion are becoming more utilitarian, but an exception is a bathtub, which is becoming more and more of a statement piece. It is increasingly common to see a freestanding tub, often painted on the outside to complement the overall design scheme. The inside, however, remains porcelain.
6. Statement Tile
When it comes to bathroom tile, sometimes less is more. An interestingly colored or patterned tile in a limited area of the room can really arrest the eye in a pleasing manner. This is also a good way to incorporate marble into your bathroom design if you cannot afford to use it throughout.
Do not think that you have to commit to only one of these trends to the exclusion of all others. You can incorporate one or two of your favorites for a unique design that is truly you.
