A Room with a View. Homeowners are looking for an indoor/outdoor connection in every room in their home, and the bathroom is no exception. Natural light lends a livable homey feel, and the sun that enters the room warms the skin, the tile, the water and the air. Flow of Space. Many of Today’s most desired bathrooms boast little distinction between where the floor ends, and where everything else begins. The continuation of tile from floor to walls, shower, and tub lend a free flow feel, while gentle color palettes provide a spa-like ambiance. Minimalist Chic. When it comes to bathrooms, modern and minimal is replacing over-crowded and over-decorated. Slight curves, straight lines, and symmetry create a clean refined look. Understated faucets and fixtures lend simplicity. Neutral materials and earth tones are subtle and soothing. This type of space is conducive to finding peace and serenity and transcends into a timeless look. Private Chambers. In the past, bathrooms consisted of a combination tub/shower, toilet and vanity with sink. However, today’s baths function as a space for relaxation and retreat, and in this environment, a separate toilet compartment takes away “rough edges” and adds beauty (and privacy) to a luxurious room. A closed off toilet chamber also allows for more comfortable sharing of bathroom space.
