3 Bathroom Remodeling Trends We’re Seeing in Northern Virginia

July 24, 2015

When completing a bathroom remodeling project, making design decisions (along with decorating) is one of the most fun parts of the process. While it’s important to choose a theme that is cohesive, it’s also largely up to preference and what works well for you and your family. Here are 3 of the most popular bathroom remodeling trends in the Northern Virginia area right now.

1. Minimalist and Modern Style Bathroom

Modern style is rooted in the 20th century and is known for its minimalism. If you like clean lines and you prefer little ornamentation, this may be the right style for you.

To get this style, you may consider including:

  • Industrial materials like metal and glass
  • Natural materials (stone, wood, and concrete)
  • Use of color to add warmth to the space
  • Casement or awning windows

2. American Traditional Style Bathroom

The great thing about traditional design is that it can easily be a combination of old and new styles. Today’s traditional design is based on English and American historical styles, mainly from the 18th and 19th centuries.

To get this style, you may consider including:

  • Formal architectural elements like arches and columns
  • Wood cabinetry (either stained or white)
  • Crown molding
  • Marble countertops and surfaces

Tip: People often find themselves choosing between modern and traditional styles when doing a remodeling project. Fortunately, you don’t have to be stuck – this is called “transitional” style, which is a combination of the two.

3. Old World Classic Style Bathroom

Old world style imitates ancient Roman and Greek design. We’re not exactly referring to ancient Roman baths, but the classical architecture and designs that went into them.

To get this look, you may consider including:

  • Columns or pediments
  • Ornamental elements (for example, in carvings or plasterwork)
  • Wood cabinetry
  • Ornate crown molding
  • Stone floors, walls, and/or countertops

Tip: Consider using Mediterranean-inspired colors like warm yellows and jewel-toned blues to channel the climate of southern Europe.
