The beauty of autumn is upon us, and we’re highlighting seven beautiful bathroom trends we love for fall. From large walk-in showers to custom cabinets that are the perfect blend of form and function, here are some of the hottest things to covet during the colder months.
Imagine a long hot shower on a crisp autumn morning. Spacious, open showers are right on trend with homeowners for a reason! These curbless wonders are made possible thanks to a sloped drain system that sends water in the direction it needs to go. You will often see walk-in showers surrounded by airy glass doors, or with a knee wall bathed in tile for privacy.
Freestanding bathtubs have a classic appeal, especially during the colder months. Yet today’s take on these timeless tubs include modern materials like acrylic, and a luxuriously larger size than the baths of yesteryear. You’ll still find that traditional cast iron clawfoot style in reproduction, as well as contemporary shapes with flat bottoms.
Tile is the perfect solution for any bathroom. Waterproof and easy to clean, it also serves as a major design element in the room. Heated floor tile is trending now, as is oversized tile for both floors and walls. Glass subway tile is also in style, in a variety of beautiful colors, such as the Cristezza Club Glass Tile from Willow Lane Cabinetry. This handmade glass mosaic tile comes in over ten different hues, including Ruby Red, Baby Blue, Gray, Teal, and Light Olive.
From sconces to recessed lighting, LED (light-emitting diode) bulbs last longer and use far less energy than florescent and incandescent bulbs. They can be dimmed to create a spa-like ambiance in the bathroom, or directed above a bathroom vanity to illuminate your makeup or shaving routine on a dark fall morning.
Recycled materials, such as reclaimed wood or metal, are all the rage. Shiplap, made popular in the home by HGTV’s Fixer Upper, gets an autumn twist when you skip the white paint. Instead, opt for old barn wood or other vintage boards, and let the naturally warm, weathered patina show.
Industrial Knobs and Pulls
Piggy-backing off of the last trend, industrial knobs and pulls have a vintage vibe with contemporary utility, similar to reproduction clawfoot tubs. Willow Lane Cabinetry offers a large selection of knobs and pulls, in finishes such as Oil Rubbed Bronze, Gun Metal, Black, Distressed Antique Silver, and Distressed Pewter. Mixed metals are on point this fall; so don’t be afraid to experiment.
Of course, our favorite bathroom trend for fall is custom cabinets. As the focal point of your bathroom, a beautiful vanity can help set the style of your space more than any other design element. With that said, a bathroom vanity needs to be the perfect combination of form and function. High-end cabinets offer plenty of customizable storage, and quality construction to last many seasons to come.
