Top Luxury Bathroom Trends of 2017
You don’t have a luxury home unless you have at least one luxury bathroom.
And having a luxurious bathroom is important. According to Trulia, the master bath is one of two rooms in the home known for standing out to buyers. It’s a room that can transform interest into an offer in a moment.
Your bathroom is the room that transforms interest into an offer.
Fortunately for you (and your budget), a luxury bathroom is as much about presentation as about what’s inside.
With that in mind, here are a few of the best luxury bathroom trends guaranteed to transform your bathroom (and sell your house):
Old World Feel with Modern Amenities
Vintage-style bathrooms are back.
No, we don’t mean the frilly pink curtains, pink toilets and (really?) pink sinks that dominated the 1950s.
Rather, we’re talking about the Victorian or Edwardian-era styles. Like the kind of powder room you’d imagine in an English castle or French chateau.
Not sure where to start for an update? Look for appliances and cabinets that feel like they’ve been central to a love scene in your favorite period drama.
Think stand-alone tubs and period-style vanities.
But don’t forgo modern amenities for the old-world feel. After all, you want to feel like you’ve been transported in time, but you don’t want experience the nightmare that was Victorian plumbing.
Tile Accent Walls
Tile accent walls are a fabulous bathroom trend because they update the look and feel of a bathroom without requiring a plumber.
Use ceramic tiles to create wall accents that transport you to a hammam in Marrakech or a villa in the Moorish lands of Spain.
But you don’t have to create a stunning piece of art to use tiles well.
You can also use them to create lines in the bathroom to make it feel bigger. Vertical patterns make the ceiling look higher and the room feel lighter.
They’re also ideal for adding some contrast to an otherwise plain (read: non-offensive and very sellable) bathroom.
Whatever your motivation for using tile, remember they’re not just pretty.
Tiles are far easier to clean than paint or wallpaper.
And that’s one of the bathroom trends that is certainly here to stay!
Let There Be Light
Harsh, fluorescent lighting is finally on its way out.
Natural lighting has become one of the most pervasive luxury bathroom trends this year.
And if you’ve looked at Instagram or Pinterest lately, you’ve likely seen photos of bathrooms with so much space they might even be outside.
Adding natural light to your bathroom will continue to be a trend because it does more than present an idyllic scene.
Natural light makes your bathroom feel enormous – even when it isn’t.
The same is true for other rooms, but you can’t always add a window.
