Design your bathroom with these timeless trends that will definitely never go out of style.
If you are planning to revamp your bathroom this coming year, you should consider basing your design decisions on timeless trends. Whether it is the perfect tile choice or the best shower system, always go for the classics, and you’ll never regret it.
And without further ado, here are seven timeless bathroom trends:
- Rain shower system
- An all-white bathroom
- Subway tiles
- Luxurious marble
- Free-standing tub
- Shower plants
- Furniture with history
#1 Rain shower system
Rain showerheads may not be classic per se. But when this design became widely available, it quickly became a favorite of both homeowners and accommodation business owners because of its ability to give spa-like vibes. Rain showerheads provide strong water flow and have broader coverage than the traditional round one, so the water hits all parts of the body all at the same time.
SR Sunrise’s collection of rain shower sets is ideal because you can also get to choose from different colors – polished chrome, brushed nickel, oil-rubbed bronze, and matte black. Some shower sets also come with a matching tub spout, in case you also want to replace your existing spout to match all the other fixtures.
#2 An all-white bathroom
Nothing is more classic than an all-white bathroom. Not only does it always looks clean, but white also makes everything look bright and homey. This is especially true for small bathrooms or those with no windows.
Another reason why this is a timeless trend is that it allows homeowners to become more creative. A white wall is a blank canvas, so you can decorate it with anything your heart desires. Most importantly, white tiles and storage cabinets match all types of shower fixtures, whether you get matte black ones or polished chrome.
#3 Subway tiles
If you can’t decide on a tile design, go with the classic subway tiles. It was called as such as it was first used in the New York City subway in 1904.
The rectangular tiles, which are usually three inches by six inches, have a spic and span quality and reflect light, allowing them to brighten up the space. These tiles are also very easy to wipe clean, and they do not stain. Because of these qualities, they eventually became a mainstay in kitchens and bathrooms.
#4 Luxurious marble
Marble has a luxurious quality that can make a space look very elegant. And just like subway tiles, marble tiles are also a timeless trend in bathrooms. Natural marble can be pretty pricey. Thankfully, there are more affordable alternatives like the laminated tiles with marble patterns.
Although a full marble bathroom is beautiful, remember that marble tiles can be very slippery. Consider using these tiles in the bathroom countertop instead, or if you want the floors to be marble too, place rugs to avoid slipping and falling if the floor is wet.
#5 Free-standing tub
Free-standing tubs, specifically the clawfoot tubs, also have the ability to add elegance to the bathroom. And when the time comes when you want to resell your home, a bathroom with a free-standing tub adds value to your home.
These tubs are also perfect for any style, whether farmhouse or vintage-themed. Installing a ceiling-mounted rain shower head will definitely level up the look, and you’ll probably take long baths every evening!
#6 Shower plants
Indoor plants not only are aesthetically pleasing decor, but they give health benefits too. They can clean indoor air and help with moisture problems. Indoor plants are pretty low maintenance and can match any bathroom theme and color.
The best plants to go with are golden pothos, fern, and spider plants because they are the most humid-loving types. They thrive in moist environments and need less maintenance. Most importantly, they look beautiful and add vibrancy and life to any space.
#7 Furniture with history
Lastly, antique furniture with history can add personality to the bathroom. These hardware pieces are timeless and can stand the test of time. They can complement any type of theme as well, whether it is modern minimalist or rustic. Vintage hardware also matches oil-rubbed bronze shower fixtures and doorknobs.
If you choose to decorate with antique pieces, use them minimally. One is enough, and it should stand as the focal piece in the space. If you add multiple antique hardware, they might clash with each other and make the bathroom look cluttered rather than elegant.
