Last year’s bathroom trends revolved around sleek, modern, and minimalist fixtures. While those styles are timeless, 2017 has put a bit of a spin on them. If you’re looking at a bathroom remodeling project this year, consider incorporating one of this new trends into your design.
Whether it’s a chair or a simple ottoman, the bathroom has become a place of self-care and comfort for many people. Why shouldn’t you be able to have a sit-down before your bath or while you’re getting ready in the morning? If you have the space to do it, consider adding a plush seat where you can lay out your clothes or paint your nails.
Free Standing Tubs
The age of shower/bath combos will never really be over, but free standing tubs offer a classic touch to a modern space. They might not be an option for those with small bathrooms, but again, if you have the space to implement one of these tubs, it will create a statement you won’t soon forget.
Patterned tiles are coming back in a big way this year, and not just in the bathroom. Encaustic tiles have been popping up in kitchens, mudrooms, and even on patios. Whether you’re looking for a bold design or a more minimalist pattern, these tiles offer a unique touch to any floor.
Faucets in the Wall
Wall mounted faucets are a common space-saving trick that, with a little bit of flare, can turn an ordinary small room into a work of art. Consider adding a pop of color with your fixtures. White tile walls and gold or brass faucets can make a space look extremely stylish.
Unique Lighting Fixtures

Your bathroom can be so much more than just a place to get clean, but you have to be willing to explore some unique options to get to that point.
