2015’s Boldest Bathroom Design Ideas
Can’t Miss Remodeling Options
Just when we think we have seen it all here at Perry Plumbing, a manufacturer sends us a catalog with a shower operated by a tablet affixed to the outer wall. From the iPad, you can choose shower temperature, floor heat, aromatherapy scents and colorful chrome therapy options. With all this fun in one place, we are shocked our clients ever leave the shower and head off to work!
Bathroom technology advances as quickly as design. As a design-oriented San Diego plumbing service, we can architect your new double shower and install everything from the toilet to the sink fixtures from farmhouse to funky, as well as the must-have chrome therapy showerheads. So that you know all options available, we have compiled some of the trends we know we will be seeing more of in 2015. We would like to start with the most shocking first.
Open plan Master Bathroom/Bedroom
Why hide gorgeous woods, natural tiles and nickel-plated, stylish fixtures behind a wall? Well, there are reasons, BUT some are choosing to take down the wall between the bed and the shower, sink and toilet. Taking the wall down makes both the bathroom and the bedroom feel more spacious, even relaxing. Most of our technicians report that it is a very contemporary look.
Bathroom Too Small for an Accent Wall? Try an Accent Floor!
If a bold-colored accent wall would make your bathroom feel like a shoe-box, look at your feet. Feature floor bathrooms are the newest rage. Designer Jennifer McClelland explains, ““I love the space when the freestanding bath hits the feature tile … beautiful!” How do you jazz up linoleum or tile, however? Get tiles with unique symmetrical, floral or other exciting designs. Combine stone, laminate and/or tile. Use tiles with the same colors, but different, bold patterns on each. We have seen some amazing work done in black and white or blue and white with tiles you would think would never go together. For more exciting feature flooring ideas, check the Houzz website and magazine.
The Natural Look
As with make up, pulling off “the natural look” does not mean no work is involved. Bringing nature into the bathroom means using natural woods like walnut, teak or oak. Natural stone tile complements the textures of the woods, and the smooth, dark shapes of live plants pulls the two together. Some families even create a wall of succulents next to the bathtub. These “air plants” do not need much soil because they pull nutrients from the air and the moisture that reaches them. Flooding this bathroom with plenty of light showcases color and texture variations.
The High Tech Bathroom
After 35 years in business, we thought we had seen it all, but America’s creative product developers just cannot be stopped. This year, we received a catalog with showerheads that come with “thermostatic mixers” which mixes the hot and cold water so carefully, it can react instantly to changes in temperature or supply. If the cold water fails all together, the valve shuts off the water completely. You can get a sound system in your bathtub, refrigerated cabinets and a faucet that is also a hand dryer.
The Free-Standing Bathtub
The curve of a free-standing bathtub can bring some gentle contours to an angular bathroom. Without the drywall around it, too, the free-standing tub gives the room a clean and contemporary feel. From the heavy-footed antique tub that may have cradled Wyatt Earp to the sleek, contemporary basin.
