New Year, New Style
Trends in Rehab & Design for 2017
Space to separate work and home.
As people seek retreats from a constant barrage of computer and cell phone stress, division of space is returning to style. Redesign a bathroom to give your clients a retreat from this constant barrage of distraction. Consider adding spa-like amenities, and design.
A touch of luxury: Powder Baths.
Even if you don’t have a separate space to house this room, you can emphasize luxury with the amenities like the mirror, sink, and cabinets, giving it the luxurious feel of a powder bath.
Especially for the aging boomers, curbless showers allow greater ease in access. This style has caught on with the rest of the population, and is why many bathtubs are being replaced with walk-in and sit-in showers.
A return to vibrancy in colors.
Industrial tones have dominated the market, but now a resurgence of vivid accent colors are giving homes a much needed lift. From accent walls to designs, the implementation can be simple or complex, based on your needs.
Bathrooms, in particular, are adding the design element of curves. They can help visually divide wet and dry spaces while softening square elements, like tubs, showers, and cabinets.
Farmhouse Modern is a continued favorite in design. It features natural textures and patterns in tile, wide plank wood flooring, wood countertops, and farmhouse sinks all contribute to the look.
