6 Ways to Modernize Your Bathroom in 2015

At Accent Custom Countertops we love helping homeowners dream of ways to make their bathroom spaces their own. Here are six ways bathrooms are getting an update this year:

1. Get a free-standing tub.

It has been a trend for years to have luxurious built-in tubs surrounded by wide, marble ledges. While luxury is always on trend, if you can afford the space, consider getting a free-standing tub. That way you can show off the other fancy features in your bathroom, such as unique tile flooring or a tiled accent wall.

2. Create a spacious, zero-entry shower space.

Perhaps in your bathroom there is only room for a shower, and therefore you want to make sure your shower space has it all. A modern shower will be free of curbs and recessed floors and will feature more space and added bonuses like a bench and built-in shampoo niches. You may even want to consider a vertical showerhead to free up some wall space.

3. Install an efficient water-saving toilet.

When was the last time you updated this feature in your bathroom? A water-saving toilet will help you cut down on your water bills, so there’s no better time than now to make the switch. Besides, this is an investment that will never go out of style since energy efficiency is always on-trend.

4. Create an accent wall with tile.

Tiles are no longer reserved for the backsplash and shower wall. Not only is this design trend splash-friendly, but it also adds an extra layer of texture and dimension to your bathroom space.

5. Install warmer metallic fixtures.

After a long reign of popularity, silver toned bathroom fixtures of brushed nickel and stainless steel are being replaced with ones that are gold, copper, and bronze in color. With the multitude of color and finish options available today, the possibilities here are endless.

6. Go for natural stone countertops.

Countertops are a great way to give your bathroom a facelift, and granite and quartz are both excellent options for the bathroom. Quartz, which is especially popular these days, is known for its superb durability, resistance to heat, and ability to mimic other stones like marble and granite with the variety of colors available.
