Homeowners in Metro Denver and Colorado Springs during the COVID pandemic gained a new appreciation for their bathrooms. They realized that a bathroom could be a refuge from the chaos of the day. A bathroom can serve as a sanctuary where homeowners can spend a few minutes all to themselves, away from texts, tweets, and even the patter of little feet in peace and quiet to recharge their batteries, soothe tired muscles, and wash away the stresses of the day.
The new role bathrooms are asked to play has made bathroom design more important to provide a space that homeowners in Colorado expect and deserve. If you are considering converting your primary bath into an in-home spa or would like to provide a powder room facelift, here are several design trends to help plan the bath of your dreams.
Tile trends: Two trends stand out. One is the use of bold colors and patterns in the bath. White can be mundane. Homeowners in Castle Rock, Denver, Arvada, and Colorado Springs who want to make a distinct and personal design statement are opting for bold, textured tiles. Another bathroom tile trend is Terrazzo. Terrazzo tiles are available in a wide range of colors, patterns, and designs. It can be customized to fit any bathroom style or theme, offering a visually stunning and unique flooring and/or wallcovering option. Its speckled appearance and reflective properties add a touch of elegance to a bathroom. Homeowners gravitate toward Terrazzo because it is extremely durable, easy to clean, and environmentally friendly. Terrazzo is made from a mix of recycled materials like glass, marble chips, and other aggregates combined with a binder.
Statement-making bathtubs: Placing a sculptural freestanding tub in a primary bath creates a great focal point. Plus, baths, especially those that feature massage, color, aroma, and sound therapies help create the in-home spa that so many homeowners cherish.
Custom vanities: Handmade, artistically crafted vanities will continue to gain popularity because they are built to meet the specific needs of homeowners in the Denver Metro area. A custom vanity fits perfectly in the bath and enhances the overall bathroom design. Custom vanity also provides a blank pallet for homeowners to use unique materials, finishes, and design elements. Not only do custom vanities make a profound design statement, but they also address the functional needs of the bath and homeowners. Custom vanities offer necessary storage, organizational tools, and layouts that enhance the vanity’s useability and practicality.
Natural Material: Similar to kitchens, today’s bathrooms incorporate natural materials that add a sense of warmth to a bath. We are seeing welcome stone, wood, and handmade ceramics into their new baths.
Power showers: High-performing showers that include steam and other therapies will continue to trend at the top of homeowners’ wish lists. Showers with showerheads or spray options may include rainfall showerheads, body jets, and handheld showerheads that allow users to customize their shower experience to their preferences. A power shower features thermostatic or digital shower controls where users can preset the water temperature and flow to their personal needs. Another popular feature in new showers is built-in seating such as a bench or shower seat that allows users to sit and enjoy all the therapies and benefits a luxury shower offers.
