When redesigning your bathroom’s layout, many people attempt to style them to match the latest trends. Several popular bathroom trends resurface as time passes on, allowing homeowners to incorporate them into their bathrooms proudly.
We’ve compiled some of our favorite popular trends that we believe you might enjoy and the types of countertop styles that match each one. While each option has its advantages and disadvantages, they’re all effective options when you carefully maintain their quality.
1. Incorporating Dark Colors
While there’s nothing wrong with having a bathroom with brightly colored or plain white walls, many people enjoy incorporating dark colors in their bathrooms. For example, painting the top or bottom half of your room black while keeping the remaining part white is a creative way to convey darkness and light in one space.
We recommend installing granite countertops for bathrooms incorporating dark colors. Granite comes in several dark or light colors that complement your bathroom’s floor or walls, determined by their mineral composition. White or beige granite works best with bold, black walls, while black granite works best with dark grey walls.
2. Spa-Inspired Bathrooms
Another trend that many homeowners consider modeling their bathroom after is to make it spa-inspired. This style makes bathing a more engaging experience due to the general atmosphere. Color palette-wise, it would be best to use lighter colors, such as white, gray, or beige.
Other things you can add include baskets with bathing products, scented candles, towel racks, houseplants, and cedar bath mats.
The best types of countertops that work best with spa-inspired bathrooms are marble and quartz countertops. Quartz countertops are affordable on most budgets, costing around $50 to $200 per square foot. In addition, their nonporous nature doesn’t allow liquids to seep in and stain their surfaces. Marble’s soft surface, while porous, gives its rooms a luxurious aesthetic.
Both of these countertop options are available in several light and dark colors, allowing you to make it blend in or stand out with your walls, floor, and furniture.
3. Natural Woods
Adding natural woods into your bathroom is another way to make your bathroom stand out. Installing wood paneling on walls made from cedar or knotty pine gives your bathroom a rustic aesthetic while retaining moisture after a lengthy shower or bath. This paneling makes an ideal alternative to wall tiles or wallpaper and allows you to experiment with surrounding decor.
Cabinets made from natural woods, such as maple or oak, can also heighten your bathroom’s appeal by providing extra space for storing your belongings. And they’re strong enough to hold other accessories on top of them.
Some countertops that work best with this popular bathroom trend include granite or quartzite. The natural properties of the woods and countertop materials can enhance the organic atmosphere with their sturdiness and flat textures.
4. Patterned Floors
Another way you can give your bathroom a stylish and modern twist is by installing patterned flooring. Some homeowners might find larger tiles with intricate designs more appealing for their bathrooms, while others may prefer mosaic-style floors due to their symmetry.
The best countertops that you should consider adding to make your patterned floors pop is quartz. Like most porcelain floor tiles, water won’t absorb through quartz countertops. Each quartz slab has an abstract pattern and color, allowing you to match it with whatever tiling you install.
5. Brass Vanity Mirrors
Placing a vanity mirror in your bathroom allows you to check your hair and makeup more efficiently and make the room feel more spacious or elegant. Whether you pick a round mirror, rectangular mirror, or one with curved edges, your mirror matches the style of your space, regardless of its size.
Mirrors allow you to reflect your bathroom’s lighting to make the room brighter; the mirror’s brass frame gives the room an artistic touch without paintings or hanging fixtures.
One countertop option you can use to emphasize your brass mirror’s presence is quartzite. Its scratch-resistant surfaces and natural nonporous properties won’t let water permeate its surface, making it ideal for constantly wet bathrooms.
There are several ways you can give your bathroom a unique and daring touch to make it blend or stand out from the rest of your home. Many of these trends don’t involve a complete overhaul of your bathroom, but they might be worth your attention if you have a budget that matches your creative vision.
