Here we are, over half the year is over, and clear trends have finally made themselves apparent. 2016 and beyond is proving to be a time when many are making bold, artistic expressions in the bathroom, and why not? It’s an area of the home that isn’t seen often, but when it is, it needs to make a statement! Wow your guests with a truly unique bathroom where you can test your decorating skills in a small space that doesn’t negatively impact the rest of your home. Here are some of the trends we’ve seen coming to fruition for the rest of 2016 and beyond!
On-Trend Look: Wood-Looking Tile:
Wood-look tile has been a trend for a while, and it doesn’t look like it will be going anywhere anytime soon. Use the wood-look tile in a creative way by using it in an interesting pattern, such as herringbone. Or, consider using it as a strong accent for a wall. In the coming years, we predict painted wood will be a big trend; cross grain (the pattern you see when you cut into a tree trunk) has also slowly found its way into the mainstream. Very interesting, natural patterns that add a level of boldness to your design.
On-Trend Look: Brick:
Interior décor on every level is returning to a rustic, old-world look, and nothing brings that to life better than brick. Brick on the walls have gone in and out of style for years, but 2016 and years ahead will see brick on the floor too. Brick-like tile will share the look of the rustic, city dwelling décor with the ease of tile maintenance. Painted brick is also coming back on-trend as everything retro is cool again. Look for aged brick to become the most popular brick choice as the old city loft look continues to reign supreme.
On-Trend Look: Cement:
Cement is not a new concept in flooring; most basements only offer a cement backdrop to work with! But these days cement has found a new calling being found in main spaces and entrenched in many different designs. Concrete-look tiles are now available too and come in many different shapes and sizes. There are tiles in mosaic, hex, and planks. With all of these choices, it certainly puts cement in a whole new light.
