2010’s bathroom remodel trends

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":

  1. 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.
  2. Ceramic and Granite. Ceramic, porcelain tile, and natural stone will be the dominant materials in bathrooms this year.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
