Bathroom Trends and Ideas

Posted 06/22/2018

Today’s bathrooms are a place of luxury, functionality and convenience. Achieving this balance is a matter of keeping up with the latest and greatest design elements. Many Maracay homebuyers use the Flex Design® program to help design master bathrooms and guest bathrooms that fit their needs and lifestyles.

If you are building a new home or planning a renovation, it’s helpful to study up on the hottest bathroom design trends to get your creativity going. Whatever your style, we’ve got a tip or two to help your bathroom shine. Take a look:

One material and monochromatic designs
Floor-to-ceiling color and complementary patterns are simple ways to add elegance and modern elements to a bathroom. Choosing one material like tile creates a clean and modern appearance. Line your shower or tub with a tile to create this look. If you aren’t looking to use the same material, but still want the same monochromatic design, use the same color palette throughout the bathroom. This design element creates an open, spacious flow for master bathrooms and small guest bathrooms, alike.


Freestanding Bathtubs
Freestanding bathtubs are the ultimate in luxury and create a beautiful spa-like environment in your own bathroom. Enjoy the comfort of your personal oasis while relaxing in a large soaking tub. Tuck it in a little alcove or use it as a focal point in your home to separate twin vanities in the master bath.


The Color Black
Black is a color that is always timeless and never goes out of style. It complements almost every other color, surface and material, while adding a classic, yet modern, touch to just about any design trend. It’s the perfect choice for those who just want to add a minimal design upgrade to their bathrooms, as black finishes and accents are simple and clean.


Integrated Showers and Glass Doors
Another trend Maracay homeowners love is integrated showers. From doorless showers to multi-person showers that line the entire wall of the master bathroom suite, this element creates a stunning, seamless design. To avoid any water overflow and to give the space more of a walk-in feel, homeowners use glass walls to enclose the space. Integrated showers are easy to maintain and allow the natural light from the bathroom windows to illuminate the room, making the bathroom feel more luxurious.

Fun Tile Patterns
Patterned tile has become a huge trend for newly built or remodeled homes. Homeowners love making a statement with the use of designer tile to accent the bathroom. This trend is perfect for smaller bathrooms because it provides a bold foundation that can be used to tie the other style elements together.
