6 Bathroom Design Trends for 2017 Infographic

If you’re looking for stylish bathroom remodeling ideas to launch your home into 2017, use our trend-filled infographic to keep these top bathroom designs in mind.

One of the bathroom design trends for 2017 is to add a private water closet.

​1. Private water closet

One of the most important layout features of a shared bathroom is a separate toilet area. Closing it off from the rest of the bathroom adds a touch of class and privacy to the bath. Install a pocket rather than a swinging door for maximum function and efficient use of space.

2. Natural fixtures and finishes

Natural materials like wood and stone are modern bathroom design trends for 2017, especially when used together and in unique places. For instance, a classy wooden bathtub is sure to turn heads, while a gorgeous stone vessel sink creates a high-end look. Just be sure to get help from a professional if you want to use non-traditional materials like wood in the bathroom. 

3. Separate tubs and showers

Freestanding soaking tubs and luxurious walk-in showers will be all the rage in the coming year. This design trend ensures you get the most out of both fixtures. Floor-mounted outlet taps for freestanding tubs and modern shower fixtures add visual and functional appeal. Of course, you need enough square footage in your bathroom to have a separate tub and shower, so check with your contractor to determine whether you can “borrow” space from an adjoining room to increase the square footage in the bath if needed.

4. Muted tile

Bright bathroom tiles have no place in 2017. Instead, tiles with muted earth tones and matte finishes are a popular choice, as are high-gloss monochromatic tiles. Unique shapes and layouts are trendy, but make sure you define the pattern before you start laying tiles. Working with a professional provides the best results.

5. Smart storage

You can ease the problem of inadequate bathroom storage with a linen closet add-on. The thoughtful organization helps you make the most of your bathroom storage, particularly in tiny spaces. Small space organization is a timeless trend that never goes out of style.

6. Floating double vanity

A master bath and any other shared bathroom in your home with a double vanity maximizes its functionality. While the concept itself isn’t new, the updated execution of this bathroom design trend in 2017 most certainly is. Opt for sleek floating vanities to give your space a modernized look for the New Year.
