Bathrooms may take up the least square footage in the home, but they have the most potential when remodeling-and for these rooms, function and design matter.
To achieve both in your next remodel, consider incorporating these in-the-now trends:
Floating Vanity – Tap into the minimalist movement with a floating vanity, which not only plays up the modern vibe, but also makes cramped bathrooms feel spacious.
Painted Cabinetry – Bold is the new black. For statement-making cabinets, go all out with colorful wood, or temper the trend with a glazed, rich stain-either will give your bathroom a “now” feel.
Simplified Storage – From pull-outs, tilt-ups and roll-outs to hidden outlets, simplified storage is in. Install base pullouts or toe-kick drawers, or a U-shaped sliding shelf that wraps around the sink’s plumbing, to stow your bathroom essentials out of sight.
Sleek Doors – Traditional cabinet doors add bulk. New, streamlined doors, with hidden hinges (called “full overlay”), half-hidden frames (“traditional overlay”) or inset, complement today’s popular contemporary-transitional design.
Whichever trend resonates, consult with a professional bathroom remodeler before undertaking the project-bathrooms are high selling points come resale, and you don’t want to take any chances.
