Natural Colors: Nothing can transform a room quite as quickly as a fresh coat of paint. While pops of color are being used in most rooms of the home, bathrooms are trending toward more natural shades. Pale greens, warm ivories, and calming grays are all making a splash in 2012 bathrooms. These neutral colors can be carried through into light glass tiles and neutral countertops. Another perk of this more laid back color scheme? The neutral palette will allow you to easily accessorize with the color of your choice.
Metal Fixtures: Fixture finishes in style today include warm chrome and classic metals, such as polished nickel. Use either to create a contemporary look. Keep in mind that regardless of which finish you choose, the faucet should match or complement the tub faucet and other bathroom hardware.
In-Floor Heat: We love heated floors and always recommend that our clients consider this amenity as part of bathroom renovations. After all, who can resist the sensation of stepping out of bed in the morning or your bathtub at night onto a perfectly warmed floor? We recommend Step Warmfloors as the floor’s radiant heating element is self-regulating! As a result Step Warmfloor maintains a continuous and even temperature.
Vanity Tops: Solid surface countertops are making a comeback in 2012 bathrooms. Our preferred countertop brand is Cambria Countertops. Not only do they offer the widest selection of design, pattern, and color options available on the market today, Cambria surfaces are also more durable and stronger than granite.
Custom Cabinetry: Medicine cabinets – once considered outdated – are making a comeback in a big way. Put a modern twist on this trend by replacing your traditional unit with a shallow cabinet, recessed into the the wall.
