Bathrooms have been quietly evolving over the years. What was once a room for very specific tasks is now a place to relax and unwind. The bathroom is a destination after a long day and the design features of the room are meant to reflect the changing use of the room. From built in shelving to luxuries such as towel warmers the bathroom is a place to experience the luxury you have always desired. These are a few of the top trends in bathroom design. To learn more about them please contact Nilson Homes.
- Grab Bars – Many more people are looking forward to aging in place and have chosen to add grab bars and other traditionally institutional looking fixtures to their bathrooms. Today’s grab bars no longer look like they belong in a nursing home and can be quite beautiful.
- In Floor Heating – In floor heating is a luxury we all can use. Not only is it energy efficient but it saves space and keeps the bathroom from looking and feeling cluttered with radiators or baseboard heating. Imagine easing into your morning routine rather than being jolted awake by the cold tile on your bare feet.
- Floating sinks – Floating sinks and vanities are much more than just visually appealing. Without cabinetry below they make the room easier to clean and keep the lines of the room smooth. Most are affordable and just as easy to install as standard a standard sink.
- Showers – The shower is where most of do our best thinking and possibly singing. The shower has become eco friendly with today’s shower heads delivering the feel of a raging waterfall but without using nearly as much water as a standard shower head.
- Free standing Tubs- Free standing tubs are beautiful and functional. We’ve moved away from the slip in one piece bathtub shower combo to something more spectacular and luxurious. The free standing tubs of today can be modern or classical and yet all add a certain charm to the bathroom that wasn’t possible with a shower tub combo.
So you’ve decided to take the plunge and remodel your bathroom. You’re sick of the outdated look of your bathroom and are excited about adding value to your home and making the space a place to relax and unwind. Before you get the sledgehammer out there are several things you’ll want to consider when remodeling your bathroom.

The kitchen is the heart of the home and always has been. However, the way we use the kitchen has changed over time due to family circumstance, technology and society. As our family’s needs change so do our kitchens. Here’s a look at the current trends in a handy infographic from Kitchen Cabinets Online.
The kitchen is the center of the home. It is where families gather to prepare healthy meals, where they discuss the day’s events and where they celebrate life’s wonderful moments. In the homes of today the kitchen has been brought into the living area. No longer is the kitchen placed in the back of the house it is quite literally the center of the home. The top trends in kitchen designs have evolved with the placement of the kitchen and yet they are classic in nature and bound to be more than just trends.
- Stainless Steel – Stainless steel is still the most popular choice in kitchen appliances. It’s easy to clean, simple and looks great with any architectural style.
- Lighting – From under cabinet lighting to overhead chandeliers homeowners are using various lighting techniques to highlight and illuminate their kitchens. Lighting can completely change the feel of the room so many homeowers are installing different kinds of lighting and using each depending on the activity.
- Creative use of lines – Designers have been breaking up the traditional straight lines of the kitchen by adding curves to some pretty interesting place. Installing curved corner sinks instead of the traditional rectangular double sink
- Energy Star Appliances – Eco friendly kitchen appliances can save you money and are good for the planet. Today’s energy efficient appliances are beautiful, functional and easy to operate.
- Mixing Design Styles and Materials – Designers of todays kitchens are mixing elements from past decades. Imagine the clean lines of handless cabinetry against the rustic look and feel of exposed brick. No matter which styles you embrace mixing them can add character and your unique personality to your home.
These are just some of the top trends in kitchen design. To learn more about kitchen design trends and how you can incorporate these elements into your home please contact Nilson Homes.
