Monochromatic Bathroom RemodelingThe definition of monochromatic is to use only one color. Now, this doesn’t say anything about shades or tints of that color. The point is monochromatic does not equal boring! As a matter of fact, monochromatic can equal soothing and relaxing which is appealing to many who enjoy soaking in a hot tub. If you like soaking in a tub you might consider a walk in tub for comfort and enjoyment. For example, let’s say you decided you wanted a white bathroom color scheme. The interest then comes in mixing the different shades of white, the patterns of white (tile floor, bead board wainscoting, etc.) and/or the different sheens of white (glass tile, knobs, flat white cabinets, etc.). The trick here is to remain in the same family of the same color to create a cohesive look.
High Contrast Color SchemeLooking for some fun and excitement in your bathroom? Look no further than a high contrast color scheme. This will surely get you up and moving in the morning. This can be fun for kids or teens bathrooms. If you keep your fixtures like the tub, sink, toilet and flooring in a neutral color then going crazy with wall color, towels, shower curtain, mirror, etc. makes this an easy change as they grow. On the other hand, black and white bathrooms can be very elegant and chic. The color scheme can be reminiscent of a refined gentleman in a tuxedo. The faucets, mirrors, towel holders and lighting all become the bling of the bathroom.
Old SchoolEverything old is new again. Kickin’ it old school with choices from days gone by can be a budget saver for those who have bathrooms from decades ago. The solution here is to use what you have to create a chic bathroom; Working with it as opposed to fighting against it. Think about remodeling around it with a new floating sink, or a sparkling chandelier, these updated elements will make your “old” bathroom feel “new” again.
Modern Bathroom RemodelingDo you like the feel of clean lines and minimal accessories? Then, modern is for you. According to the National Kitchen and Bath Association's style report, more than 400 designers agreed there is a move in 2015 towards simplicity in a cleaner, more contemporary way. That's not to say they are going to completely lose their cozy, rustic charm for all-out glamour, but they will have cleaner lines and more minimalist modern vibe. Think in terms of totally glass enclosed shower, floating sinks and stream lined fixtures.
OrganicAnything made from natural materials can be considered organic. As an emerging design trend, this goes beyond simply using natural elements; it is a choice to live green. Choosing materials such as eco-friendly flooring, sustainable materials, water-efficient bathroom fixtures to water-conserving dual-flush toilets would be important to your overall project.
In regards to the design trend, organic it reflective of nature. Choosing natural materials that reflect your style is the most important key here. You may love the beach and move to have sea glass tile on your walls; someone else may love a more rustic outdoors reflection and have wood walls in their bathroom. The choices should reflect your connection to your favorite part of nature to create a bathroom you want to spend time in.
