Bathroom remodeling: Bold fixtures highlight design trends for 2017

Posted 23 November 2016 by Team Hudson

Form over function? Not in today’s bathrooms.

But don’t think that means bathrooms are boring. Emerging trends in bathroom remodeling are all about ramping up style without sacrificing usability. Modern, sleek fixtures and shiny surfaces are being used in creative ways to put personal stamps on bathrooms while also maximizing long-term functionality and resale.

The bathroom is one of the most-important and most-used rooms in your home. If you’re considering giving new life to your bathroom, Hudson Remodeling is here to help. For inspiration, check out these trends we expect to see in 2017 bathrooms.

Surfaces: Natural surfaces such as granite and marble have been mainstays in bathroom design since just about forever. Don’t overlook tile, though, which can be arranged into geometric patterns to express personality while also maintaining its broad appeal. Expect to see a lot of muted colors this year, such as grays and other earth tones, set off by areas of geometric interest. Colored or pattern-printed tile arranged into geometric shapes can add pop to floors, walls and countertops. Small areas of odd-shaped tile can also add interest.

Fixtures: In 2017, look for modern fixtures that add a touch of style without sacrificing functionality. Home remodelers are eschewing standard items like classic sink-vanity combo for bold and modern sinks, faucets and bathtubs. Freestanding sinks and bathtubs in bold shapes and even bold colors can act both as functional fixtures and art-like centerpieces.

Colors: As mentioned above, gray will continue to be a huge color in bathroom design. Add to the mix earth tones such as green, brown and blue for a sleek-yet-subdued combo that will provide a bathroom you can be proud of for years to come. To get some of that color, consider bringing in additional items such as wooden touches or living plants. Bamboo, for example, needs little light to grow and brings both color and form into the space. And for that space that needs a little extra flair, don’t be afraid to add in little bits of bright colors, too.
