3 New Bathroom Trends for 2017

by Shea Homes Arizona on April 7, 2017

 

Wanting to spruce up your home and make it as welcoming as possible? Your bathroom, while often underappreciated, receives a lot of traffic and can make or break the overall feel of your home. Check out these 2017 bathroom trends.

Neutral Bath Colors

Neutral coloring
White, off-white, and grey walls are the most popular bathroom colors for 2017. The Shea model home pictured above fits right in, with dark grey cabinets and light grey walls that nicely complement the white countertop and linens.

Distinguised Vanity

Distinguished Vanity Space
Create a sleek, individualized look in your bathroom by dividing your wide vanity into two distinct spaces. You can do this by placing individual mirrors and light fixtures above each sink. Add an accessory between the two and you’ll give your bathroom a more distinguished look.

Tile Accents

Ceramic tile accents
Sometimes it’s difficult to find the perfect balance between getting every room to work together and not being able to tell when one room ends and other begins. There are very few features that say “bathroom” like ceramic tiles on the walls! As in the Shea model home pictured above, the tiled backsplash and shower accent matches the color scheme of the house while keeping a bathroom feel.
