When designing your new home, or renovating your existing home, you should pay special attention to the kitchen and bathrooms. Because these spaces in your home require investments to upgrade and renovate, it is important to be thoughtful when designing them so that they are timeless and able to be enjoyed for years to come.
Being aware of current and upcoming trends can help you create a kitchen and bathroom design that you will love and that can grow and evolve with your family and lifestyle. Read on for some of our favorite kitchen and bathroom design trends.
Spa-Like Feel – Gone are the days where your bathroom simply provided a space to get ready for the day. More than ever, bathrooms are seen as a place to escape and relax. As a result, homeowners are expanding the size of the bathroom and creating a private oasis at home.
Bold Colors – Gray bathrooms have been a top trend for bathrooms for several years and remains a mainstay in many designs. But more and more, homeowners are choosing dark interiors for bathrooms, including dark navy and gray, and even black. If you aren’t quite ready to go dark throughout the bathroom, choose black features and lighting fixtures to add a flair for the dramatic.
Uniquely Shaped Details – Add interest to your bathroom with unexpected tile patterns and asymmetrical shapes and arrangement of cabinets and shelves. Infuse rounded rectangle mirrors and unique, but inexpensive, accessories to create an inviting space with lots of character. Give this trend, some thought, however, as you don’t want to tire of it quickly by over-doing it.
Sustainable – Bathroom fittings and decor elements made of recyclable or recycled materials keep your space eco-friendly and stylish. Consider upgrading your toilet to take advantage of more flushing power that requires less water. And be sure to install LED light bulbs that use less power and last about 40x longer than their traditional counterparts.
Tech Enabled – Technology is evolving faster than the trends themselves. Among the newest gadgets on the market include motion-detecting faucets, mirrors with built-in LED lights and integrated touchscreen to control lighting and water temperature, heated floors and towel racks, and digital showers. If you can imagine it, it’s probably available!
Colored Cabinetry – The trend of all-white kitchens is being replaced with the use of bold colors that make a statement. Consider black or colored cabinetry that really pops, especially when paired with white walls, backsplashes, and countertops. Take your creativity to the next level with a feature wall tiled in a colorful pattern to accent your colored cabinets.
Bring in the Outdoors – Expand your living space by extending your kitchen area to the outdoors via exterior double doors. You can blur the lines between indoors and outdoors by bringing in elements like natural wood and greenery to your kitchen decor.
Combine Textures & Materials – Get back to basics by bringing in natural elements like stone, wood, shiplap, and jute. By combining the different elements, you can add both visual and tactile interest, as well as a sense of warmth.
Upgraded Appliances – Integrated appliances can blend into your kitchen seamlessly, providing the necessary functionality without taking over the space. Slim hoods that turn on automatically and induction cooktops that blend into the countertops continue to increase in popularity.
Statement Lighting – Pendants and unique lighting fixtures add character and warmth to your kitchen. Lighting can also help you denote different areas of the kitchen within an open layout design.
