Top 5 Bathroom Remodeling Trends For 2017 & Beyond

If you’re planning a bathroom remodel you’re probably in the shoes of many homeowners right now in that there are an overwhelming array of options to consider.

Budget, design, functionality, resell are just a few things that have to be front and center on your home improvement checklist.

We’ve broken down 5 of the most common things we’ve seen in the past year and what we consider to be the dominant trends of 2017 and beyond.

1. large format tile

Large format tile is one of today’s hottest flooring trends. From rustic stone-look to sleek high-gloss finishes, the best looks have been expanded to stunning proportions. Because each tile covers more square feet, fewer grout lines are required during installation, resulting in a more streamlined look that is easier to clean.

2.Tub to walk in shower conversions

Many Americans are ditching the plastic tub surrounds and opting for the convenience or a walk in tile shower.  Pre fab tubs and plastic inserts are common builder grade additions but if you want to add value and style to your bath space, ripping out that tub is a good idea.


3. More storage is more better!

That’s grammatically very wrong but you get my point!  Free standing cabinets, larger vanities, shelving, recess in the shower, hidden compartments, you can’t go wrong with adding more storage space.


4.Free standing bathtubs

More and more homeowners are choosing to get rid of that outdated cultured marble jetted tub and opt for the elegance of a freestanding tub look in 2017


5. Lighter is brighter!

One of the top trends that will continue in the new year is the move to lighter more modern and clean looking bath areas. The return to clean and simple is a trend that we’ve seen the past 5 years and will continue well beyond 2017.
