Quartz Countertops

Quartz has a lot going for it. You’ll find quartz countertops in a wide range of attractive shades for master bathroom remodeling. It is easy to clean and is quite durable, standing up well to spills and heat. If you’re not a fan of quartz, granite remains one of the master bathroom trends that seems to have excellent staying power.

Install a Freestanding Tub

Freestanding tubs are less utilitarian than tub enclosures, but what they lack in practicality, they more than make up for in looks and style. Your options include traditional clawfoot designs with gold or bronzed feet to very modern freestanding tubs in vibrant white.

Go Gray with Color Choices

Gray is a hot hue right now because it makes a great background color for artwork, countertop accessories, towels, flowers and more. You’ll find attractive shades of gray for countertops, walls, flooring, cabinets and even major pieces like tubs and shower enclosures. Brushed chrome or nickel fixtures complement grays quite well.

Ceramic and Porcelain Tiles are Back

Tile has ebbed and flowed among master bath ideas and it  seems to be on the upswing in master bathroom trends at this time. Designers are choosing an eclectic but complementary blend of tile sizes, colors and styles to complete a look that somehow manages to look both very traditional yet entirely up to date.

Transitional Design

Transitional style brings together traditional and contemporary features and makes them look right at home with one another. For example, as noted, granite remains popular in master bathroom remodeling. Putting contemporary granite countertops on traditional wood cabinets is transitional, or using an old-world bowl sink with a modernistic faucet would also be considered transitional. These are just two of many master bath ideas that fit this trend.

These five master bathroom remodeling trends give you a place to start. Combine one or more of them with your own ideas that create a bathroom that is uniquely you while keeping up with the current top trends in master bathroom design.
