UPDATED TRENDING BATH AND KITCHEN IDEAS
5 Emerging Bathroom and Kitchen Trends!
*5 Emerging Bathroom Trends
*Smart toilets…with built in bidets, cleaning functions and night lights! Many are available with self-closing lids that will also spritz a cleaner inside the bowl to cut down on the cleaning required.
*Sliding Barn Doors- very popular for separating rooms and becoming a new look in the bath department.
*Free Standing Sculptural Shape tubs <not to be confused with the old whirlpool tubs set in tile> and Large walk in barrier free multi spray showers.
*Variety of tiles and textures in varying sizes and materials..Large tiles on the wall and small tiles on the floor with subway tiles for a backsplash with a marble or granite vanity is just one example of mixing the sizes and material in the bath.
*Voice Controlled Technology for smart mirrors, mood lighting or music. Google Home or Alexa are being incorporated into the bathroom design to control everything from the lights to music. Somfy powered retractable blinds are also very trendy right now.
5 Trending Kitchen Features!
*Column Refrigerator Units
They are fully "Customizable" and come in fully integrated built in modular family’s consisting of refrigerators, freezers, or fridge/freezer/wine cooler combo. Their climate-controlled zones keep different foods fresh longer.
*Connected Smart Appliances. You can now purchase a Refrigerator that has a camera inside with an app that will connect to your phone while you are at the grocery store to see what you may have run out of. Also smart tablets built in to cupboards to show you your favorite recipe online, or Google Home or Alexa to control lighting and certain smart appliances.
*Sectioned drawers and organizers to help declutter. Many kitchens now have the built in island with deep pan storage added in underneath.
*Low maintenance materials like quartz kitchen counter tops. Granite is trending out while quartz is trending in for its low maintenance & high resiliency in kitchen countertops.
*Bold color accents like brushed brass finishes and black stainless steel. The black stainless steel provides the sleek minimalist look of stainless steel without the worry of smudges and fingerprints like the ordinary stainless steel.
