Bathroom Remodel Trends & Ideas

Bathroom remodels may be smaller projects compared to other rooms in the home, but it’s still important to get a feel for your favorite design style and nail down what elements you’d like featured in your new bathroom. Turn a boring, outdated bathroom into an oasis with a remodel design you’ll love for years to come!

In this blog, FBC designers Jean and Sam share some design ideas and trends that are sure to get you inspired.

Be Bold with Your Redesign

Shower doors with bold, black frames are all the rage in 2020. We also see clients gravitate towards shaped and patterned tiles — scallops, hex, marble, and herringbone to name a few!  

Wallpaper is back! Utilize wallpaper to add your favorite pattern, design, or bold color to a wall in your bathroom. 

Bold paint is also trending this year, particularly emerald green accent paint. Matte black and brushed brass fixtures are also popular choices with our 2020 projects. 

Natural-Looking Palettes and Wood Features

Are you looking to transform your bathroom into a relaxing oasis? If you’re using your remodel to craft a place to unwind, this design style is for you. 

Give your bathroom a zen, spa-like, and woodsy feel by filling your design elements with soft neutral colors and pops of wood. 

Our clients gravitate toward whites and greys, in particular. Another popular design choice is utlizing a neutral palette with one pop of color. 

Bathroom Lighting

Overhead bathroom lighting often creates discoloration and shadows when looking in the mirror. That’s where your remodel partner comes in — to help you achieve the perfect lighting to accommodate all of your beauty needs. 

We recommend utilizing side sconces instead of overhead lighting! They not only look beautiful and luxurious, side sconces are quite functional. They allow front lighting (as opposed to overhead), which prevents those not-so-great shadows when getting ready. 

We also recommend integrated lighting for optimal makeup and nighttime lighting. This consists of backlighting behind the mirror and/or at the toe kick. 

Furniture Piece Vanities

Have you considered including a vanity in your bathroom? A vanity provides a pleasant organizational space to easily store your essentials and stay on top of your morning and night beauty routine.

Currently, clients are opting for furniture piece vanities, rather than built-in vanities. This option allows you to make your vanity your own! Don’t be afraid to get creative — you can change out the hardware, paint it, or purchase a special feature like a faucet!

Two other major benefits of furniture piece vanities are generally lower cost and better-quality storage options.
