Bathroom Design Trends
According to the National Kitchen & Bath Association’s (NKBA) 2015 Kitchen & Bath Design Trends report, contemporary designs top the list. Top designers also note that nearly all bathroom amenities are also on the rise. This includes features like steam showers, frameless shower enclosures, sound systems, unique tiles, low flow toilets/fixtures and electric heated floors. When it comes to color, white still tops the list but, grey is making strides while beige is becoming passé.
Walk in Showers / Enclosures:
The largest and more dramatic component of a bathroom is the shower and we’re not talking about the tub shower combos we all grew up with, that’s old news. Now, walk-in showers are the rave, but not at the expense of a tub. Freestanding tubs, especially jetted tubs, are still finding a place in the bathroom.
The tile, hardware and fixtures are where most people start and tend to spend the majority of their thought process and budget. However, the shower door and enclosure provide that subtle luxury that showcases those elements of personal style and interior design and, really should be considered much earlier in the planning and budget process.
Frameless heavy glass enclosures are a huge design trend because they give the bathroom that spacious, luxury spa-like feeling that homeowners want.
Since frameless enclosures are custom designed to fit the space they tend to be more expensive. One of the more affordable alternatives is semi-custom enclosures that still offer the designer look but, allow for minor adjustments for out of plumb conditions.
Basco Shower Doors is now offering two new products in their RODA collection that bring together the best two worlds with their Vinesse and Cantour shower enclosures. They offer the perfect balance of beauty, function and affordable luxury that fits most standard opening sizes while delivering high design features such as rolling doors, clean lines and high-end finish options.
