The hottest bath trends of 2016

The kitchen may be where many families choose to allocate a lot of their money and attention when designing their home, but a close second is the bathroom. For many families, having high quality finishes and thoughtful touches in the bathroom goes a long way, turning the space from a purely functional one to something spa-like and inviting.

We like to keep on top of the latest trends here at Wayne Homes, so we want to share with you what we’ve seen emerge as the hottest trends in bathroom design this year. For those who are more visual, we’ve pulled together a Pinterest board as well!

Neutral Colors Abound – You might like to get adventurous with color schemes in other areas of the house, but in the bathroom, neutrals are the name of the game. Warm beiges, cool greys, white and bone shades are all extremely popular in bath design today.

Better Built-Ins – Having a more functional, less cluttered bathroom is high on many homeowners’ lists this year. This includes rolling units for storage that tuck away and out of sight, hidden electrical outlets for easy electronic charging, and floating vanities that give the space a sense of lightness.

Sink Style – Undermount sinks are by far the most popular style of sink in bathroom trends, which has been consistent for several years now. An emerging trend, though, appears to be trough sinks, with more and more homeowners requesting this unique and distinctive style.

Leveling Up the Shower – Faucet and showerhead? You’re just getting started! More homeowners are looking for shower-specific amenities in their luxury bathroom spaces, included built-in seats and benches, beautiful lighting, and handshowers.

Heavy on Luxury – Overall, homeowners appear to be trending more and more toward wanting luxurious, spa-like features in their bathrooms across the board. That could include a wide range of things, from steam showers to built-in coffee bars to freestanding soaker tubs. Whatever the choice, homeowners clearly want a bathroom experience that feels like one you’d get in a high-end hotel.

Well, there you have it! The hottest trends in bathroom design this year. Remember to check out our Pinterest board for even more inspiration!
