As a contractor, you can constantly be searching for the best options and latest trends regarding all the bathroom options you might take into consideration by the time you make a remodel. Lately, there are a variety of trends that allows you to choose a new style without going by the same one as everyone and fitting the apartment/house’s personality.
We looked up the newest trends of 2016 in showering and draining so you can have all the new features added to the bathroom remodel you’re planning to make.
1.- The New Shining Armor
People are getting tired of looking at the shiny metal of the faucets or in the drains, as said by our friends at Houzz. You can stick to the awesome and everlasting metallic trend in the drains and bathroom equipment with a variation of polished materials or with a bronze or copper finish to add a fresh, yet, comfy and retro style. This can be a great option for transitional or classic bathroom enthusiasts.
2.- Aging-in-Place Accommodations
This upcoming trend is getting stronger day by day, consisting of things like no threshold showers, grab bars, higher vanity heights, and chair-height toilets to allow you live in your house for a lot of years without any complications and accidents caused when taking a shower or a bath.
3.- Let The Nature Come Alive
Nowadays, making the bathroom comfortable goes beyond utility, and now it’s all about making it a place to enjoy a new environmental experience. One way to accomplish it -and a great trend- is to add earth-like materials to bring nature in the bathroom’s vibe. Adding natural rock sinks or shower places to get a comfy look.
4.- Keep it Classic
With a classic trend (but with all the new retro accessories available) you can make a rocking bathroom out of the conventional goods. For instance, using some copper looking faucets or drains, or also going with gold, bronze metal for the shower and bath.
5.- Linear Drains Still On The Rise
Not only by it’s cool and modern touch, this type of drain has been gaining more fame in the last years, but also by the huge amount of water that this baby can take. As our friends from Lutz Plumbing Inc stated with linear drains you decrease significantly the mold and mildew development, improving your bathroom’s hygiene.
6.- Quality Is Always Trending
No matter wich bathroom choice you take, you have to invest in quality materials – that don’t necessary mean expensive ones- and you can always go with PVD materials that last a lot. Kohler supports this idea by saying that “now most types of finishes – including nickel — are extremely durable due to this coating process”.
