Breaking Out of the Bathroom Blues

October is National Kitchen and Bath Month and that means it’s time to think “outside the tub.” The upcoming new year in bathroom design ushers in a new wave of creativity. To help get your creative juices flowing, here are a few of the latest trends:

1. Luxury Hideaway: Many homeowners are remodeling their bathrooms to create their very own spa-like retreats. Clean lines, neutral colors, chrome accents, and design simplicity reign supreme. Thick luscious towels and floor mats can also be a nice touch of luxury. Of course, it always helps if you have an ocean-view…

2. A Pop of Color: All signs point to color being a big player in the 2014 scene, in bedrooms, kitchens, and especially bathrooms. Color is a great way to completely change the look and feel of a room, and give you an entirely new perspective. Whether it’s a bright blue or a slightly more subtle green, don’t be afraid to jump into color and explore your options!


Great use of color!

3. Creative Storage: A place for everything and everything in it’s place. As bathrooms become much more of a focus in the home, you might find yourself spending a bit more time there, and with more time comes more stuff! But don’t worry, 2014 will bring with it many new options for tucking your essentials away, and still looking great in the process!

But the most important trend upcoming in bathrooms? Creative license to turn your bathroom into whatever you want! Bathrooms don’t need to just be a place to get in/get out of anymore. Instead, they are quickly becoming a centerpiece of the home and their design can reflect your unique tastes. Another helpful hint when thinking about your bathroom is the intended use. If it’s a Master Bath think retreat from life — your very own private escape. If it’s a second bath designed for guests or children you may want to think more utilitarian.
