Bathroom Design Trends For Fall 2014
Your bathroom is where you set the tone for your day. It is your staging area, your cleansing area, and a space that should be conducive to relaxing. Trends in bathroom design for fall of 2014 take these needs into account.
Create a Relaxing Space Through Simplicity
Simple elements situated in open spaces continue to rule designs in bathrooms this fall. In this design paradigm, less is definitely more, but you don't have to sacrifice convenience to be on top of your fashion game.
One piece that will give your bathroom a modern style is a floating vanity. Nothing opens up a room quite like taking the legs or pedestal out from under the third largest piece of "furniture" in the room. (And the largest pieces, your tub and toilet, are a little more complicated to "float.")
Floating vanities have the convenience and storage space of a traditional vanity, while still reducing the piece's footprint and opening up the room. These are perfect pieces for a smaller area.
Small ledges and shelves placed near sinks and showers maintain a simple style while still providing convenient places for placing both functional items and decoration. Shelves offer ease of use hand-in-hand with style.
Bathroom wall décor this fall leans toward large pieces with simple designs. Floral themes are being used nicely to decorate a bathroom while maintaining its simplicity.
Another element of your bathroom that can greatly contribute to your décor of relaxation and simplicity is lighting. Sconces can light a bathroom beautifully without having the footprint of standing lights or lamps.
Leave Frames Behind
Part of this fall's trend toward simplicity calls for leaving shower curbs and frames behind. Walk-through showers and showers without frames continue to gain popularity, and seamless showers – installed either in wet rooms or with continued flooring tile – open up a bathroom and further show off your fixtures and accessories
Take Advantage of Technology
As you strive to create a relaxing bathroom space, simplicity may reign, but technology certainly has its role as well. Whether it be a mood light or a towel warmer; looking into little luxuries can convert any bathroom into a spa-like space.
Stick With a Color Scheme
Bathroom design for fall of 2014 takes color seriously. Black is back (though we know it never really left), and monochromatic design schemes are popular. To give your bathroom a modern style, select a color scheme and follow through with it throughout the room. Whether it be your sink faucet, your shower head and handles, or your general bathroom accessories be consistent with the colors and/or metals you are using, and you can develop a style that is simple, relaxing, and classy all at once.
