If you’re planning your next bathroom upgrade, can we introduce you to a trend you’re going to love? Marrying the peaceful elements found in luxury spas with the high performance the bathroom demands, the practical retreat style bathroom has something for everyone.
Consider: barrier free showers. Yes, enjoying a walls-free shower is possible at home. A truly blissful experience, alone or with a partner – and from a much more family friendly practical level, if you’ve got a toddler who hates clean up time but loves the water park a barrier free shower eliminates a lot of bath time drama.
In terms of design, showers without walls do present an opportunity for creative thinking. Will your new bathroom have a dividing wall or sliding glass doors to help contain the humidity? Is this an opportunity to install some of your favorite moisture-loving plants in the bathroom and add a luxurious green element to the space?
In terms of colors and surfaces, the trend is toward whatever makes your heart feel at ease. Grays, greens, and blues are having a bit of a moment, but color is an intensely personal phenomenon. Choose the hues that make your heart feel at ease. Because most bathrooms tend to be smaller rooms, what we see with bathroom remodeling in Newton is a lot of bold colors used in small doses with mirrors, chrome, and lighter hued countertops to provide visual balance. Natural materials evoke a relaxing spa-like feel: look for options in wood, stone, and bamboo.
Finally, and this is a direct nod to the practical end of the equation: mobile bathroom storage. No longer do you need to feel limited to a medicine cabinet and a towel rack. The peaceful retreat bathroom storage options include floating shelves, beautiful basketry, and partitioned storage drawers to make organization lovely and stress free.
