Bathroom Design – A Trend Toward Expression

Personal expression has become a growing trend in bathroom design

Starting about a decade ago, a bathroom design trend began growing.

Incorporating personal expression became a major influence in bathroom design, impacting the majority of bathroom remodeling projects.

Prior to that time, homeowners tended to want nice looking and functional solutions with their bathroom design. Incorporating elements of personal expression was not an overriding issue.

Until that time, a bathroom was a personal place not requiring too much more than being functional. A bathroom design was a pretty straight forward process.

Presently, an important element in the bathroom design process is identifying the style of the homeowners. The result is each component in the remodel project is a piece in the puzzle. Colors, textures and patterns become much more significant and other items such as hardware and other accessories are scrutinized at a much deeper level than ever before.

It Takes Two To Create The Most Successful Bathroom Design

Another trend many designers see growing is couples are involved with the bathroom design process together. Often first time homeowners are looking to make the project an extension of themselves.

Function is still extremely important and a bathroom design must maximize function. However, homeowners also want an escape from the day to day grind with a room that shows their personality. A place they enjoy, that says ‘this is who I am’.

This trend is inspired by specialized home improvement media such as the Home & Garden Network and other do-it-yourself themed shows. These shows fuel a great deal of thought and planning, rarely occurring in the past. In general, both spouses are involved now, where in the past, one of the spouses (usually the wife) was the driving force. This is no longer the situation. The final result is a bathroom design that generally turns out great because of the increased level of thought and collaboration occurring with each project.
