Bathroom Trends for 2019

One of our favorite parts of the holiday season is that it’s the time of year design gurus start predicting what’s going to be all the rage next season. If you’re planning on building, remodeling, or maybe just want to do a little sprucing up, here are some ideas to keep in mind.

Spa Inspired Designs

Bathrooms in 2019 are all about the experience, the notion of the bathroom as a purely utilitarian space is over. People’s homes are their sanctuaries and the bathroom is where you go to relax and unwind alone after your day. Drawing inspiration from the pinnacle of relaxation only makes sense.

The use of natural materials is a major way to create the feeling of serenity key to this look, this bathroom achieves this beautifully with the wood wall and coordinating bench. The light fixture adds a touch of whimsy that keeps the space from feeling too serious.contemporary-master-bath-the-warmth-of-natural-wood-balances-the-stark-elegance-of-the-freestanding-tub-1.jpegPhoto: Besch Design

Open Concept Bathrooms

Not for the faint of heart, open concept bathrooms have been growing in popularity in recent years and seemed poised to take off in 2019. Many open concept bathrooms draw very strongly on spa inspired design, though this isn’t always the case.

This freestanding partition, doubling as the a vanity area with sinks and countertops, allows for a feeling of privacy while still creating that open concept feeling that comes from free flowing light and not having doors.SquareRooms-Open-Concept-Bathroom-Fixed-Divider.pngPhoto: Square Rooms
Using glass walls is another popular way of incorporating the feeling of open concept design into your bathroom.open-concept-master-suite-bedroom-contemporary-with-open-bath-rectangular-decorative-pillowsPhoto: Chic Home Life

Place A Vanity In Front Of A Window

One fresh design idea for 2019 is to place your vanity in front of a window. Especially if you have a wonderful view, you naturally want to take advantage, and everyone knows natural light is the optimal choice if you have it. There are so many ways to place or suspend a mirror, we don’t think this trend will be going anywhere anytime soon.

This contemporary bathroom take the look to the next level by placing a double vanity in front of a glass wall. The pole mounted mirrors parallel the lines of the glass framing and modern open shelving continues the aesthetic on the vanity.bathroom-vanity-mirrors-hanging-in-front-of-windowsPhoto: DecorPad
This is an especially good idea in a smaller bathroom, where lighting and window space can be limited. This round mirror, suspended from a rope and pulley give off a fun, rustic nautical vibe that makes this small piece a statement.0a73a9f9759b78b0a0f6c927367ea53b.jpgPhoto: Pinterest

Smart Bathrooms

Technology has taken over practically every aspect of our lives, and it should come as no surprise that our bathrooms haven’t been left out of the revolution. From smart showers where you can control water pressure and temperature on demand, to mirrors that are integrative media systems, the future is now and it is in our bathrooms.

Statement Walls

Whether with a bright print or piece of art, designers and homeowners are making walls, and not additional accessories, the focal point of the bathroom in 2019.

If you don’t want to commit to a more permanent option, using a large or dramatic piece of art as a focal point in your bathroom is also a very 2019 design choice. BN-RB835_1208BA_M_20161205141323Photo: Wall Street Journal

Art Deco Is Back

Art Deco is a style of design and architecture that emerged from France after WWI. Popular throughout the 1920s and 30s, Art Deco is defined by bold geometric patterns, beautiful craftsmanship, and ornately lavish details. While art deco isn’t for everyone, if you’re looking to inject a little high style or drama into your space, this may be exactly the aesthetic you’re looking for.

Fabulous Bathroom Vanities

When granite or marble counters are mentioned, most people instantly think about the kitchen. And we do understand, but we also know how beautiful and functional granite and marble each are as bathroom counters. Here are some amazing bathroom vanities we are loving right now.

This 3.5″ slab of Calacatta Gold Marble counter was the perfect choice to complement this luxurious nature-inspired space. This feels more like an expensive retreat than it does someone’s master bath and the only issue is how difficult it must be to leave this amazing bathroom.Contemporary-Bathrooms-Mountain-Retreats-02-1-KindesignPhoto: OneKinDesign
This gorgeous white and blue bathroom feels totally serene. The white marble with light gray veining is a beautiful match with the blue-gray hued walls. This master bath is a great example of how a room can simultaneously feel modern and classic.

This master bathroom fits perfectly in the rustic Montana retreat it’s located in.  The natural stone is the same on the vanity, running between the blue tiles on the floor, and in the standup shower providing a real sense of continuity.contemporary-bathrooms-mountain-retreats-09-1-kindesign.jpgPhoto: OneKinDesign
How fabulous is this white marble waterfall style double vanity? We are drooling over how chic the open shelving looks with the low-edged open glass containers. This storage option is super stylish and keeps everything beautifully organized.design-ideas-wonderful-white-bathroom-decoration-using-white-marble-bathroom-vanity-including-marble-floor-tiles-and-oval-white-free-stand-bathtub-heavenly-interior-design-using-marble-fPhoto: Gogoigood
This master bath is the perfect mix of rustic and contemporary design.  We love how all the different natural stone textures blend together so wonderfully and are really set off by the dark wood cabinets, giving the entire space a real sense of balance without feeling overly effeminate.

We love this freestanding bathroom vanity with dual sinks on opposite sides. This is a great option for a smaller bathroom, allowing homeowners to maximize functional counter space.

This bathroom is proof you don’t need a huge space to have an amazing bathroom with a gorgeous vanity. The thick slab makes a real statement in a smaller bathroom and makes the need for a lot of extra decor minimal.55c151feb28acca368628935-w1000_h1000Photo: Domino
Counter space will never be an issue in this amazing bathroom with a floating vanity that runs the entire length of one wall. We really love the mirror above, especially because no matter what direction you’re facing in this space, you get to enjoy the gorgeous views provided by the wall of floor-to-ceiling windows.

Smart Storage Ideas to Make the Most of a Small Bathroom

A small bathroom might seem like an obstacle you can’t overcome. But it doesn’t have to be. Organization is key in any small space, and making every element as functional as possible is the goal. Here are a few of our favorite creative ways to maximize every possible inch of space in your small bathroom.

We love the idea of using shower caddies to really maximize the storage potential of a small, under sink cabinet. The caddies are naturally the perfect size to hold your products and easily double your storage potential. It’s important your shower caddy has a flat bottom so it will stand.

Updating Your Bathroom for 2018

Bathroom_13Photo: Bathroomist

Your bathroom is where you spend a lot of intimate time in your home. It’s where you relax in the tub after a hard day, where you bathe your children, where you brush your teeth. And you deserve to feel good in there. Whether you want to do a full bathroom renovation, or are really just interested in a smaller project, there are so many ways to update your bathroom to help turn it into the space of your dreams. Here are a few of our favorite bathroom trends looking toward 2018.

Shower Plants

We’re not talking about a bouquet of flowers on the counter. Shower plants started trending in 2017 and don’t show any signs of slowing down. This is probably the most simple way to update and brighten up your space. The only limit here is your imagination; it’s all about having real, live plants in your bathroom. And while you can do whatever you want, the look tends to be more about greenery than flowers.

Don’t let the name fool you, the plants don’t have to actually be in your shower. Anywhere in the bathroom will do. The shower does provide the added bonus of eliminating the need to remember to water.4-bathroom-plantsPhoto: Cheshire Mum
The living wall is definitely a cool look, though maybe not practical for every space. Regardless of how many plants you use, you should try and choose ones that will help naturally purify your air.IiY5qYaiCYZlPhoto: Lonny

A Monochromatic Look

The black and white color combination is classic and will never really go out of style. Regardless, the color scheme is seriously trending upward for 2018.

Doing a bathroom in all black & white can instantly create either a vintage or modern feeling. The two toned look below manages to blend the two in a way that is very 2018. The round mirror and gold accents complement the trendy aesthetic quite nicely.

While it’s true that the black & white color scheme lends itself quite well to a modern, industrial look, it can be made as opulent as you like. This luxurious bathroom is a prime example of how swanky the two colors can be, especially when paired with all the mirrors, crystal chandelier, and gorgeous marble countertops. Traditional-and-luxurious-bathroom-in-black-and-whitePhoto: Decoist

Gold & Brass Fixtures

Once thought to be a permanent reminder of the 1980s, gold and brass fixtures are making a huge comeback. Trends really are cyclical and if you wait long enough, it seems true that everything comes back in fashion. It’s important to note that the brass and gold fixtures of today are different than your childhood memories of the finish. Today’s brass is a little more understated, a little less shiny than your parent’s was.

The simple lines of these muted brass fixtures make a huge statement in this gorgeous bathroom. The brass complements the organic wood countertop effortlessly. The trendy black & white floor tile is an unexpected, but fun, touch.  12-2Photo: Luxury Bathrooms

Fish Scale Tile

Also called mermaid tile, this look, as with all things mermaid, is trending hard right now. This versatile look can be placed anywhere you’d use tile, but we are really loving it for the bathroom. It adds a whimsical touch wherever, and makes for a great accent wall or shower tile.

The most common color for mermaid tiles is this dreamy ocean-inspired aqua, though it is available in a number of other colors. thisonePhoto: Mercury Mosaics

Round Vanity Mirrors

One of the easier ways to quickly update your space is with a round vanity mirror. Designers are obsessed with the shape and it almost instantly gives your bathroom a current feel.

The modern shape contrasts beautifully with the rustic vanity.  Reimagining vintage and rustic pieces as bathroom vanities is another look poised to be big in 2018. The mirror creates an even bigger impact when paired with a square shaped vanity and sink as shown below.MG_0162Photo: Park and Oak

Make a Splash in the New Year by Giving Your Bathroom a Makeover

The bathroom is the space where most of us start and end our days. It’s also the most private room in the house and the place to relax and get away from the stress and pressures of work and every day life. While it may seem that the bathroom is not the most fashionable space in your home, doesn’t this make it one of the most important rooms in the house? Why not turn your bathing space into a place of style and beauty with these five brilliant bathroom design trends.

Smart Storage Solutions

A beautiful bathroom is an organized bathroom. Life is hectic enough without wasting time looking for your bathroom essentials. Cabinetry manufacturers are now offering many clever options for keeping everything you need organized and close at hand. Even the tried and true medicine cabinet is now becoming the command center for organization, with many new models featuring built in electrical and USB ports, TVs, and even refrigeration for your gels and creams (or your wine!)

Montclair Cabin

Natural Materials

This year will be marked by a emphasis on organic and natural elements when it comes to a bathroom design. Natural materials will not only add character and warmth to your room, but they’ll also help to soften the sleek lines of modern toilets, tubs, and sinks. Materials like wood and naturals tone will add organic coziness to clean colors and simple lines.

Oaks Residence

Floating Vanities

While floating vanities have been popular in Europe for some time now, they are just becoming trendy in the US. The floating vanity creates a sense of space and openness (great for small bathrooms), but they have practical advantages as well. They can be installed at almost about any height, which is great if you find  standard height vanities either too tall or too short. Also, the open area underneath makes for easy cleaning. The look is great for both traditional or modern designs.

Little Compton

Metallics

The metallics trend, which has been strong in other areas of the home, has finally made its way into the bathroom, with copper, brass, and rose gold making a big splash in bathroom design. Look out for faucets, mirror frames and towel bars in these soft metal tones that will add warmth to even the most contemporary design scheme.

Hamilton Terrace

Wet Rooms

This hot new trend includes a shower space and freestanding tub in their own glass enclosure separate from the sink and toilet areas. Opting for a complete wetroom will give your bathroom a glamorous, spa-like feel, but it’s important to work with professional designers and architects on a project of this scope.

When it comes to adding organic elements to your design, Prestige Marble & Granite is here to help you with a vast selection of unique, exotic and rare natural stones from around the world. Our knowledgeable staff will guide you through selection, layout, design and installation. We welcome homeowners, designers, and contractors to browse our showroom any time!

Mistakes to Avoid When Remodeling Your Bathroom

Whether you’re headed for a simple refresh or full-on makeover, it’s easy to become overwhelmed by a bathroom remodel. While remodeling your home is an exciting and creative process, the responsibility to make educated decisions can cause anxiety and leave many people terrified of making the wrong decisions. How can you make sure to get the right design for your lifestyle, stay within your budget, and maximize the return on your investment? Get off on the right foot with this list of what not to do.

Being Afraid to Commit
There’s something that feels so permanent about bathroom selections that leaves many people paralyzed when it comes to making decisions. While it’s true you can’t switch up tiles like you would throw pillows, nothing is really forever. Your bathroom could be one of the most important rooms in the house— potentially a spa, a retreat, a place for a moment’s peace and quiet. Let your creativity flow and go for the colors, patterns and fixtures that add character to the space and make you happy.

Overlooking the Floor
Often called the “fifth wall,” floors are your opportunity to pack an extra decorative punch. A feature floor can make all the difference in a hum drum bathroom design and one that truly stands out as exceptionally designed.

Making Lighting an Afterthought
Plan your lighting scheme from the beginning. Layered lighting (task, mood and accent) in your bathroom will create a richer environment.

Neglecting to Integrate the Design Style
Many homeowners treat the space as though it were a completely separate entity from the rest of the house, in terms of both the architecture and the style. Don’t forget to carry the look and feel of your other rooms into your new bathroom design.

Choosing the Wrong Vanity Top
The range of bathroom countertop material options can be somewhat overwhelming, but choosing the right material for your bath space is an important aspect of bathroom design. The style, durability and cost of your chosen vanity top material are all key considerations. In addition to durability and price, consider the look of a vanity top, since this highly visible surface contributes greatly to the room’s overall style. When selecting materials, also consider aspects like size, location, material, height, storage and the plumbing.

Cutting Costs on Installation
Cutting costs here will inevitably have an impact in the longer term. Spending more on installation should be a high priority as the single thing most likely to ruin a bathroom design is how it’s fitted.

Neglecting Finishing Touches and Accessories
Don’t forget to set aside a small portion of your remodeling budget for the accessories and finishing touches. It’s important to think about doors and door handles, lighting, window seals, blinds and shutters, and paint, as well as soap dishes, toothbrush holders, vessels and vases. These details can sometimes be overlooked, but they make a huge difference.

For bathroom countertops, marble and granite remain the premier choices among the varieties of natural stone, due to their dramatic beauty and seemingly endless variety of colors and patterns. Prestige Marble & Granite offers the largest selection of the highest quality, rare and exotic natural stones available in Middle Tennessee – we would love for you stop by the Prestige Marble & Granite showroom and browse any time.

A Brief History of the Bathtub and a Look at Today’s Tub Styles

PMG bath with marble

From the portable tin tub, to the enameled cast-iron claw foot, to the solid porcelain bathtub that became the hallmark of a high-end bathroom in the 1920s, the bathtub of today has certainly evolved, and in some respects has come full circle, too. Here’s a look at the bathtub from its humble beginnings to its advent as a major focal point and design statement in modern bathrooms of the 21st century.

A Brief History of the Bathtub

The earliest plumbing systems ever discovered date back nearly 6000 years to the Indus River Valley in ancient India. Forward another 3000 years to the Isle of Crete where the first personal bathtub was unearthed – made of hardened pottery, its shape resembling the 19th century clawfoot tub.

The early Romans championed the daily ritual of bathing and raised the bar for acceptable sanitation, but after the collapse of the Roman Empire and descent into the Dark Ages, sanitation virtually disappeared until the Bubonic plague forced  attempts at improving sanitation.

Before indoor plumbing, bathtubs were portable accessories: large but relatively light containers that could be pulled out of storage for temporary use. The typical mid-19th-century bathtub was a shell of sheet copper or zinc. More upscale homes had lead tubs with wooden enclosures that were sometimes equipped with early water heating mechanisms.

As running water became more common in the latter 19th century, bathtubs became more prevalent and less portable. Almost simultaneously in 1883, both the Standard Sanitary Manufacturing Company (now American Standard) and Kohler began the process of enameling cast iron bathtubs to form a smooth interior surface.

Over time, the once popular clawfoot tub morphed into the built-in porcelain tub that is still a bathroom standard today. This enclosed style afforded much easier maintenance of the bathroom and with the emergence of colored ceramic, more design options for the homeowner. It was Crane Company that introduced colored bathroom fixtures to the US market in 1928.

Bathtub Styles Today

While the built-in bathtub is still very common, the style preference for freestanding tubs (including clawfoot) in a myriad of shapes and sizes, and fashioned from any number of materials, is strong. Bathtubs have become design statements and are often of the focal point for luxurious master suites with luxurious spa-like bathrooms. Here is a look at a few beautiful bathtubs that just might have you yearning for bathroom remodel!

Bathroom Design: It’s All In The Details

“The details are not the details. They make the design.” ~ Charles Eames

The bath basics: tub, shower, toilet, sink, cabinet. The elemental bath is just a place to perform your daily duties, but it’s the details that will take you beyond the essentials. It’s the details that will transform a plain bathroom into a true retreat, an oasis that can invoke relaxation and rejuvenation of body and spirit.

The transforming details of a luxury bath can be found everywhere–from the little things, such as pretty knobs and towel bars, to the big things, like sumptuous spa tubs and showers. While careful space planning is a must for any bathroom renovation, thoughtfully chosen and finely crafted details are the defining elements of a bathroom that will create a space defined by luxurious comfort. Here’s a look at some divine details to inspire your design dreams.

Gothic arches in the door panels, crown trim on cabinetry, a pair of castle-like scones and chandelier, plus wood beams on the ceiling are intriguing details that work in concert to create a modern twist on the gothic revival style of the late 19th century.

Mediterranean Classic
With white as the main element, and black as the second, this beautiful, yet simple, gold hardware really makes a statement. It works because it fits in perfectly with the industrial-style bathroom, and proves you can even make a feature of pipework that’s normally considered unsightly.

Shiplap walls, curved vanity legs, hardwood floors, and retro faucets complement the coastal hue to recreate the look and feel of an authentic vintage beach cottage.

CREMA BORDEAUX

Crema Bordeaux slab

Crema Bordeaux is famous for its amazing colors and is often said to resemble the planet Jupiter with its swirling pink and cream patterns. While there is no standard predominant color for this granite, you can expect a combination of certain minerals and colors in varying levels of saturation. You’ll find creamy golden tones combined with red hues that range from soft pink to golden orange to rusty burgundy. Grey to dark blue mineral deposits ground the red tones, making this stunning stone easy to integrate in most any design scheme.

PURPLE DUNES

Purple Dunes slab

This distinctive granite from Brazil has dramatic veining in deep purples, golds, grays, creams, and browns. Purple Dunes is very durable, making it ideal for for interiors, well as landscaping projects and and outdoor kitchens in climates with freezing temperatures.

Life is Good

Life is Good granite

Don’t you love the soft, organic vibe of the directional veining in this blue marble? We’re wild about our new “Life is Good.” This stunning blue-hued slab has soft, but distinct diagonal streaks in shades of grey and beige, making it an elegant choice for both kitchens and baths.

VIENNA GRANITE

Vienna Granite slab

This beautiful slab of Vienna granite is fabulously modern in appearance with multi-directional veining and dramatic mineral deposits that really pop – giving the stone a modern edge. Vienna would be a stunning complement to any contemporary design!
