29 Mar 2018 Bathroom Remodeling Trends
Here at New Generation Kitchen and Bath, we talk a lot about San Antonio kitchen remodeling and kitchen cabinets. We recently talked about some of the biggest, most prominent kitchen remodeling trends for 2018, and have a vast portfolio of kitchen remodeling projects to showcase our work in that field.
However, it seems like it’s about time that we covered some of the year’s biggest San Antonio bathroom remodeling trends. You’re going to be spending a lot of time in the bathroom every month, anyway, so you may as well enjoy the space. Without further ado, here are the top 2018 bathroom remodeling trends.
Number 1: Mediterranean Influence
Mediterranean style has made a big comeback in bathroom styles over the past few years. Old-World beauty meets modern glitz with tiles and backsplash inspired by Mediterranean countries like Spain, Morocco or Portugal. This trendy look combines elements like hand-painted terra cotta with modern metallics. Try combining a patterned, mosaic tile to add a touch of elegance – you won’t need a lot of it to make a big impression – by putting it as an accent in the shower or tub.
Number 2: Smart Storage
Practically using your space never truly goes out of style, but making the most efficient use of every inch of your storage (without creating a cluttered disaster in your bathroom cabinets) is very chic right now. Take advantage of your space by adding vertical cabinets that create additional storage without closing off your floorplan. You can even consider open shelving in your bathroom to incorporate a clean, flowy layout that conveys minimalistic elegance.
Number 3: Classic Whites
No matter what year it is, the classic, clean, white subway tile is always in style. It works perfectly with many different types of bathroom styles and decorations, and gives a bright, crisp appearance. Add it as an accent piece by installing it as a backsplash behind your sink, or let it take center stage by incorporating it into your shower or tub area. Whether you’re going for an industrial style or the urban farmhouse look, always consider white subway tile the go-to.
Number 4: Three Dimensional Tile
Sure, you can go with the same old bathroom tile that you’ve always had, or you can show your chic designer side by adding tile with additional depth and texture. They can be patterns of depth and texture, or even have designs that hearken back to the bygone eras of the 1960s and 70s. Whether you’re looking to use it in a large space, or as an accent behind the vanity or on an accent wall, combining some three-dimensional tile into your San Antonio bathroom remodeling project is a great way to make your room unique and sophisticated.
Number 5: Media and Music
We live in the digital age. We hate being pulled away from our devices for any amount of time, even if it’s just the amount of time that it takes to get ready for work or take a shower. Luckily, there are a plethora of options available that allow you to include your media, music and even TV right into the bathroom. Add a built-in, waterproof bluetooth speaker to your shower so you won’t have to sign to yourself anymore. Put a smart TV screen directly into the bathroom mirror so you can see all the morning news and updates before you head out for the commute. When you do a San Antonio bathroom remodel in 2018, you don’t have to choose between elegant appearance and tech connection. They can come together.
