It’s at this time of year that many people in West Palm Beach start to think about remodelling their bathrooms. Some may not have done so for many years, and realize that their bathrooms are beginning to look decidedly out of date. We do spend more time in the bathroom than we used to, so it’s nice to relax in pleasant surroundings.
So if you are looking at high-end bathroom remodelling in West Palm Beach, what are the likely trends for 2019? One of the things that is making a comeback is the bath tub. A couple of years ago, quite a percentage of people who were considering a bathroom remodel were considering getting rid of the tub altogether in order to make way for a big walk-in shower. However, it’s a fact that, even though you may put seating in the shower, you can’t relax in it in the way that you can in a tub, soaking in the hot water. So, yes, the tub is making a comeback in 2019, and many people undertaking high-end bathroom remodeling West Palm Beach will have one on their shopping list.
Here is something that may surprise you: exposed hardware is coming into fashion. It used to be seen a lot in older homes, but now the trend is to expose the piping under the vanity. Having it made of brass – or even gold plated to match the faucets – actually looks very special. However, you do lose the storage space that you would otherwise have in the vanity, so this is one that won’t be for everyone.
Talking of vanities, for those planning on keeping them, the trend this year is definitely away from bright white – or the really bright colors chosen by some of the more daring in recent years. Today, plain wood is making a big comeback. It can be reclaimed wood or light wood that shows plenty of grain and knots. The grain patterns and knots have the effect of adding visual interest and texture to the space, and an additional benefit is that it warms up a bathroom that is all white.
Another new entry to the bathroom trends for 2019 for those going for high-end bathroom remodelling in West Palm Beach is the use of mirrors. Mirrors used to be simply rectangular – sometimes with a plain frame around them, but often just the glass itself. For 2019 the trend is towards a mirror that has an elegant frame around it, and the more ornate it looks the better.
