With another year comes another update to the trends of custom home designs and construction. Often, keeping up to date with current styles is an exhausting errand. Some old favorites stick around, but even those can see interesting twists and additions with each year. Also, certain rooms in a house may be overlooked. Though it takes relatively little space in a home, a custom bathroom deserve the same love and attention as the other rooms. Luckily, below is a list of the updated trends and examples of their seamless implementation.
Removing the Threshold
One stunning trend is to blend the shower space with the rest of the bathroom. This helps open the room and group the shower with the room instead of sectioning it off and keeping it separate. Ditching the threshold can take many forms, from utilizing the use of a simple privacy wall to installing only a glass divider, keeping consistent tile and flooring throughout.
Keeping with the seamless and continuous theme, sunken sinks have their place in today’s bathrooms. Having undermount sinks maximizes counter space and keeps everything comfortable and aesthetically pleasing.
In 2016, it is no longer sufficient to use only a central light for the entire bathroom. This trend involves giving attention to the shower area. From recessed ceiling lights to track lighting to sconces, this practice brings personality and warmth to the shower itself.
While using a dual-purpose shower and tub can come standard, there’s nothing standard about a custom bathroom. Separating the two allows for each to more suitably handle their purpose. Showers can now give enough room while the tub can accommodate a relaxing soak without clashing.
An often forgotten but crucial aspect of the bathroom is the paint and material color. The current trend is to use neutral tones. Tiles, stains, and paint for the room vary from soft cream to earthy, deep browns.
