Top 10 Bathroom Trends

As America’s economy strengthens, remodeling and home renovations are on the rise. For homeowners seeking inspiration for their bathroom renovation, here are the top trends to know:

Doubled Vanity

With separate sinks and vanities, homeowners get the individualized spaces and storage they desire in their bathrooms. 

Radiant Heat

Some companies install heating mats controlled by a thermostat under tile, stone, laminate and engineered-wood floors.

Recycled Flooring

With the increased focus on sustainable materials, tiles made from recycled ceramic, glass and metal are in.


Recycled Glass Tiles

Seeing Green

The National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) reported that 24 percent of their designers used a green color palette in their clients’ kitchens last year.  KraftMaid, a leader in semi-custom cabinetry, offers cabinetry with color finishes – such as Sage – that can add a burst of color to bathroom walls. 

Walk-In Showers

Large glass doors and earth-tone tiles are being combined with luxury showerheads and water jets for a spa-like feel. 

Added Storage Space

For the homeowner with dozens of bottles, jars and accessories, KraftMaid’s vanity filler pullout creates storage while saving space with its slim vertical design.

 Satin Nickel Faucets

From 2009 to the end of 2010, the percent of NKBA designers who specified a satin nickel faucet in the bathroom rose from 45 percent to 57 percent.

Fine Furniture

Standard bathroom cabinets are being replaced by cabinetry with rich finishes and detailing.

A Hint of Nature

Wood and stone are in-demand materials for bathroom design.

 Quartz Countertops

The low-maintenance mineral boasts a higher durability against cracks and dents than marble.

    You inspired me to research the radiant heat system. I have to tell you that I love my new floor in our kitchen. It use to be the coldest room in the house, now it’s the warmest.

  2. Since you mention engineered oak flooring I though I would spread a little wisdom to any of your readers considering buying any. Try to buy engineered wood flooring with a 6 mm ware layer. This gives you flooring that will be as long lasting as solid Hardwood Flooring. Select a engineered foor with the underside made up from a multi laminate plywood with 10 laminates. This gives much stability and strength to your floor.
