Bathroom Remodeling and Design Trends

For many people, their bathroom has become their personal sanctuary. It is not simply a place to take a shower, but now it has become a personal spa where you can relieve your stress and relax after a long day. So if you are thinking about bathroom remodeling in Sacramento, CA, you are not simply creating a practical bathing space, but you are creating a wholesome place where you can get away. Every aspect and characteristic must be well planned out to come up with the bathroom of your dreams.

Before you embark on the journey of bathroom remodeling in Sacramento, CA, take a moment to look at the latest trends. Below we have compiled the latest trends in 2018 and approaches that you might want to consider when designing your bathroom:

  • Neutral and Organic Styles: Neutral colors have been trending from the whites, grays, and warm brown colors which can make a space look modern and elegant. In 2018, many homeowners enjoy integrating these neutral colors with a bit of an organic fusion. The appeal keeps people drawn to aged flooring, vintage plumbing fixtures, and weathered tiles to create a more natural and relaxing vibe. You will also see more attempts to bring the outdoors indoors by adding plants, flowers, and even grass. As for materials, there will be an addition of wood, natural stone, and brick. You can also get creative and have your wall covered in a lead tile mosaic or have a nature inspired wallpaper. To create emphasis, add skylight to let the sun stream directly into your bathroom.
  • Matte Finishes: While gloss is still a great feature for smaller bathrooms as it can reflect light, matte is proving to be a popular trend for larger spaces. This is because they do not show smudges or watermarks. This can be practical for family bathrooms.
  • Ceramic and Marble: Ceramic tiles and marble have become popular choices for bathroom floors. This is because manufacturers have come out with a wide variety of designs, geometric patterns, tones, colors, and even patchwork patterns. There are even ceramics on the market that can imitate high-end materials and are sold at more affordable prices.
  • Showers: There have always been several options for showers, but the one that has the most demand are open showers. Many people also like multi-functional equipped showers by integrating steam systems, benches, ambient mirrors, anti-fog mirrors, and linear drains. They also add shelves or crevices to hold their toiletries. Another popular choice is the Italian shower which has glass walls and can give a minimalist appearance while still being transparent. Plus, it is easy to maintain and it can adapt to different styles.
  • Sunken Baths: To create an amazing bath experience, you can have your tub become the star of the room. Popular choices have become a bateau or slipper-shaped tub which sinks into your floor and is found in the center which will make it a stand-out feature.
