CBS’s MoneyWatch recently posted a really great article about kitchen and bathroom trends.
We at Schloegel Design Remodel and One Week Bath, KC have seen a huge increase in calls from people that want to talk about bathroom remodeling — so much so that bathroom remodeling is surpassing kitchens and additions by a significant margin. So we felt it was only proper to share these four bathroom trends from MoneyWatch‘s “11 Kitchen And Bath Trends For 2010“:
- In With the Old, Out with the New. Bathrooms will apparently match the kitchen, according to the NKBA. Look for traditional styles and an absence of all color.
- Ceramic and Granite. Ceramic, porcelain tile, and natural stone will be the dominant materials in bathrooms this year.
- Simple Fixtures with Almost No Color. In times of trouble, white becomes the dominant color for bathrooms because everything goes with it – or at least that’s the thinking. Look for white, bisque and off-white and simple undermount sinks.
- A Nickel for Every Finish. The most popular faucet finishes this year will be brushed nickel (doesn’t show fingerprints or scratches), polished chrome, satin nickel, bronze and stainless steel.
