Scandinavian Grey Style

2017 is the year to refresh your bathroom by borrowing ideas from the sophisticated and stunning Scandinavian-style. This style features a simple, mostly white and grey color palette, minimal furniture and clear angles.

Scandinavian style bathrooms feature large and chunky mirrors in different shapes, often circular. You can get a huge mirror that acts as a focal point in the bathroom.

Standalone bathtubs are also a key feature in Scandinavian bathrooms. Since most bathrooms that perfectly bring out this style have a shower and bath completely separated, there’s usually plenty of room for a standalone tub that you’ll instantly fall in love with. Complete the look with neutral colors in the bathroom interior. Make sure to incorporate the right angles and adequate lighting as well as making use of wood for a relaxed and warm atmosphere.

Industrial Open Concept

If you enjoy an open-concept bathroom, this is one of those hot trends in bathroom remolding design that you’ll definitely love. The industrial open concept design is all about using rough materials and leaving a lot of fixtures and piping visible. Materials like concrete, wood and brick on the wall work really well when bringing out this design. You can also use lighting fixtures like industrial lamps to pull off this look. This stripped-down style embraces decorations and accessories that are very subtle yet have a unique appeal. For instance, you can invest in a beautiful claw-foot tub to add an elegant touch to the room.

French Luxury Style

This is a perfect design style for anyone who loves the sophisticated way of life. You can incorporate some sleek elements with clean appearance and modern charm.

You can incorporate vintage elements like a beautiful artwork to give the room a French signature. Remember that the French luxury style bathroom is clean so make sure the color and decorate palette you use gives it a unique aesthetic appeal.

Go Green

Want to invest in a green bathroom? There are so many ways to do it. You may consider installing a faucet or shower head that reduces the amount of water used in the bathroom.

When painting, opt for paint that has low volatile organic compounds because they are considered less toxic. Little things like changing the fabrics used in the design can go a long way in making your bathroom more eco-friendly. And add some plants so your bathroom actually looks green!

Black & White

You can break up the monotony with gray lines that prevent the color scheme from feeling cold. Don’t forget to make good use of clean lines when designing your bathroom.
