Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Backsplash

With a new year, new trends are on the horizon. Some traditional styles still have continued to thrive, but new backsplash trends have emerged. Therefore, if you are looking to do a backsplash in your home, it is key to know the latest styles and trends. Today, we will explore some of the new trends on the market to help you decide which styles you may want in your own home. Let’s get started!

Subway Tiles

Subway tiles used to be so prevalent in every home a couple of years ago, and then they became outdated. It seems now that all the old subway tiles have been removed, the trend is back on the uprise. Homeowners and businesses are once again incorporating subway tile backsplashes in their design. The simplicity grid layout helps build a simple, clean-cut aesthetic.

Bold Patterns

Geometrical shapes and bold patterns are becoming very common, as well. You can see this with encaustic tiles and other bold-patterned tile systems. These geometrical patterns can become the focal point of any room. Just try finding a pattern in which you can complement other areas of your design.

Solid Wall

Solid wall backsplash is another largely trending aesthetic look. These backsplashes eliminate any grout line or separation and are installed as one large piece. This style can create a very sleek and cleaned line look in your home.

Marble

If you are looking to add some character to the room, consider marble. Marble has a ton of character throughout the intricate veining patterns in each piece. Each marble tile will offer its own aesthetic and unique look to the room. This style can quickly spruce up a dull area and make a stunning backsplash.

To the Ceiling

Backsplashes are also beginning to lose their limitations on height. Traditionally, backsplashes were just high enough for splashes or spills. However, we are now seeing homeowners backsplash the whole wall – all the way up to the ceiling. If you use this look, keep in mind the size of your tiles if you are looking to do this in hard-to-install areas.

Trends are significant to keep in touch within the interior design industry. Are you surprised by any of these backsplash trends?

20819710_SYou’ve overhauled your kitchen and now it’s time to give your bathrooms some extra love.

Do you have a bathtub? Try replacing it with a claw foot tub. The new ones have been given an update and a modern spin to make this classic look fashionable.

Faucets are going high tech. Install a hands-free action-sensor model.

Think luxury. Leather vanities with stainless steel tops were featured a recent design show. You can even customize the leather color.

Jetted tubs are out. Now you “need” a hydrotherapy tub. VibrAcoustic transducers broadcast sound waves through the water to relax and calm the body. Unlike jets, the transducers don’t interrupt the surface of the water, since they’re found below the bathtub’s shell. Who knew?

If you really want to spoil yourself you can add a shower that allows you to control the precise temperature and water pressure you want. You can even start your shower right from your cozy bed with your shower remote control.

Add the finishing touches to your updated bathroom with a patterned backsplash – think herringbone. Pair that with black Italian marble countertops and flooring and a metallic sink.

When it comes to lighting, combine pretty with practical. Sconces on either side of your mirror are good lighting for your face. Put pot lights in the ceiling and add a statement chandelier.

There you have it, design ideas to turn your bathroom into a relaxing sanctuary, a get-away from the world and a place to pamper yourself. Because after all, don’t we all need that?
