We recommend you consult with a professional before beginning a shower remodel. It’s important that everything is installed correctly to avoid mold and water damage. Your remodel professional will also be up-to-date on current trends!

Here are the top 5 trends:

1. Tile backsplashes and flooring

Whether you’re remodeling the entire bathroom or simply upgrading the shower, tile is timeless. Your personal sense of style dictates whether the tile is colorful, patterned or earthy, though bathroom fixtures manufacturer Cheviot suggests being cautious of colors that will go out of style in the next year or two. Colors that have fallen out of popular graces can hurt your resell value.

Cheviot echoes interior designer Carole King’s advice to pattern your either your floor or your wall, but not both. Patterns can be overwhelming and difficult to match. However, don’t forget that there are exceptions to just about every art and design rule.

In regards to colors, you will always win with earthy tones. If you like black and white patterns and color schemes, you are definitely in luck! King assures homeowners that black and white will not go out of style anytime soon.

2. Wood walls

Do you want your bathroom to feel close to nature? Then you might want to consider incorporating wood tile into your shower and bath. Wood brings a calming beauty to any room, and the bathroom is no exception. There are many new options with porcelain tile that looks just like wood.

3. Marble

Marble takes any shower to the next level of elegance! Though there are differing opinions on whether or not marble is a good bathroom choice, many homeowners love it. It’s beautiful and unlikely to go out of style, and maintenance is often easier than with tile.

4. Minimalist fixtures

Home and bath design trends continue to lean towards minimalism. Simple is winning the design race. Thankfully, simple doesn’t mean boring. Many one-of-a-kind designs appeal to the minimalist. Attractive accent colors like silver, gold and bronze can make even the simplest fixture stand out.

5. Freestanding tubs

You might picture vintage styles when you think about freestanding tubs, but there are many modern options out there. Freestanding tubs come in all shapes, sizes and materials. They are adaptable and make a great statement piece for your bathroom.
