There is no denying that a home’s bathroom is one of the most coveted rooms. Homeowners and renters alike love to spend time in a luxurious bathroom. This is especially true when it comes with all the amenities one needs to relax, rejuvenate, or get ready for a night out on the town.
That said, bathroom remodel trends come and go. Whether you’re an investor, realtor, or property manager in Atlanta, you’ll want to stay on top of what people want in their bathrooms. That is, if you want to save time and money. Not to mention appeal to the right people.
That’s why we gathered the top 13 bathroom remodel trends that are sure to wow anyone who steps into that space.
Top Trending Bathroom Remodel Ideas
1. Floating Vanities
If there’s one thing people love, it’s saving space. And it just so happens that floating vanities — one of the hottest trending bathroom remodel ideas to date — do just that. You can customize your floating vanity in multiple ways. For example, you can choose any style and layout you want, determine the size that will fit your bathroom and, of course, select the color and finish that will match your property.
2. Bold Colors
If you’re looking to make some trending bathroom renovations to your Atlanta home, but aren’t looking to overhaul your entire bathroom, you can always take on a new color scheme. Although grey has been trending for quite some time, it’s good to know that many people are taking on bolder, darker colors these days — even black. Things to customize include light fixtures, mirrors, vanities, and hardware. And if you really want things to pop, consider a matte finish.
3. Open Showers & Big Tubs
When it comes to showers, there’s no shortage of styles. However, if you are eyeing a major trending bathroom remodel idea, one to think about is installing an open shower. These fancy showers come multi-functional, complete with options for an integrated bench, ambient lighting, an anti-fog mirror, and even a misting system if you like. These spacious shower/tub spaces can do wonders for the value of your property and even save a ton of space.
If you’re thinking about adding more of a standalone bathtub to your bathroom, the bigger the better. People want to kick back after a long day’s work and take a load off. While you may not want to put the traditional Jacuzzi style tub in your bathroom, a large open tub will be a welcome asset.
4. Terrazzo Style
Take note… bathroom designers are once again claiming that terrazzo styled bathrooms are trending. Mixing natural stones, cement, and marble, the terrazzo style finish gives a bathroom an edgy look without going overboard. You can use this style on shower walls, counters, or even backsplashes.
5. Smart Bathrooms
People looking to rent or buy a home are always on the lookout for smart homes. In fact, 22.7% of renters want smart technology in the homes they lease. So, what’s stopping you from bringing technology to the bathroom?
When it comes to taking your bathroom up a notch with technology, it’s best to think outside the box. For example, rather than opt only for a smart toilet, consider things like:
- Smart showers
- Built-in blue tooth speakers
- Automatic sinks and showers
- Mini fridges
- Voice activated features
- TV installments
6. Backlit Mirrors & Medicine Cabinets
According to Houzz, 77% of people install new mirrors when making trending bathroom renovations. In other words, you can never go wrong with replacing bathroom mirrors in your investment property. That said, one trendy thing you can add to your new mirrors is embedded ambient lighting. Eye-catching lighting — whether on the mirror or even the medicine cabinet — can create a glowing effect people fall in love with. It can also be used to highlight textured walls behind beautiful fixtures.
7. Statement Fixtures
Another simple and affordable way to spruce up your property’s bathroom space is to install statement fixtures. Trending now are nude color schemes, even if you follow the dark, bold color scheme of the overall bathroom mentioned above. In fact, gold, brass, and copper metallics are all the rage and work seamlessly on shower knobs, cabinet handles, and faucets.
8. Quartz Countertops
As much as investors and property managers want to tout the appeal of granite countertops, know this — there is a new boss in town. As one of the hardest natural materials in the world, quartz offers plenty of benefits including:
- Stain resistance
- Scratch proof
- Easy maintenance
- Plenty of colors and styles
- No sealant needed (non-porous)
- Less susceptible to bacteria in damp environments
Right now, quartz countertops in bathrooms are trending towards warm, neutral, and light colors. That said, you can easily install quartz that mimics the look of cement, natural wood, and other natural materials that don’t do well in bathrooms. So, think beyond the traditional kitchen countertops and let quartz make an appearance elsewhere in your property.
9. Wood Accents
As grey tones start to make their way out, know that in addition to darker color schemes, warmer tones and accents are making a comeback too. More specifically, wooden accents. The great thing about this is that they complement any color scheme – white, blue, green, and even black. They also pair well with multiple styles, including vintage themed bathrooms that stray away from modern, materialistic styles and go bold instead.
10. Compact Storage Spaces
Another thing people look for when they want to lease or buy a home is additional storage space. When looking for trending bathroom remodel ideas, it should come as no surprise that compact storage spaces within the bathroom space itself is what people are seeking. Some ideas to help maximize your small bathroom space include hidden cabinets, storage under vanities, modern shelving, and even ceiling high bathroom closets. In the end, the more organized the bathroom feels, the better.
11. Asymmetrical Mirrors
Another thing we’ve seen a lot with bathroom remodels in Atlanta is asymmetrical mirrors. And to top it off, they are infused with smart technology too.
With a fancy asymmetrical mirror that’s smart, you can expect things like:
- Unique, geometric, offset shapes
- Anti-fog technology
- Smart touch capabilities
- USB charging stations
- Ambient backlighting
- And more
12. Heated Floors
Anyone with a property in Gwinnett, Fulton, or Cobb county knows that winters can be long and cold. That’s why installing a heating system underneath the floor of your bathroom might be a good idea. Heated floors can be tile, vinyl, wood, and even concrete. This makes it easy to find the most affordable option for you, while still taking your property to the next level and making it a must-have for renters or buyers.
To top it off, heated floors come with additional benefits too. For example, they can reduce noise levels and even allergic reactions due to the lack of warm air currents that would typically come from HVAC units that disturb dust and other allergens.
Wallpaper is not always a welcome word when it comes to flipping properties or staging rentals. But believe it or not, it’s still a popular bathroom remodel option. Of course, we’re not talking about old-fashioned, flowery wallpaper that reminds you of your Grandma’s house. Instead, we’re referring to big, bold, and beautiful patterns that evoke emotion in those who see it. Not to mention, wallpaper these days is easy and mess-free, making it very appealing to anyone who’s thinking about it for their bathroom.
