If there’s one 2017 home decorating trend every interior design expert can agree on, it’s hygge. The Danish word roughly translates to cozy, and most of the bathroom trends we uncovered supported the idea in some form. Whether or not you buy into this Scandinavian concept, we’re sure you’ll be comfortable with at least a few of these up-and-coming ideas for the most overlooked room in the house.
The idea of hygge is based on gaining a sense of well-being by enjoying life’s simple pleasures. Adding a plant is an inexpensive way to update your bathroom and purify the air. As a bonus, it lets you incorporate another hot trend – the Pantone 2017 color of the year, Greenery – in a truly organic way.
Warmth, whether literal or figurative, is another important facet of hygge. Incorporate it visually with terra cotta tiles or walls, or convert your fixtures and shower door frame to copper. Keep your feet warm all year round with a heated floor for the ultimate in at-home luxury.
Whether you opt for a spa-worthy bathroom or a lush, exotic decor, getting away from it all is big in 2017. If budget allows, upgrade to a glass-enclosedwalk-in shower or have your dream bathtub built. Or simply replace as many hard lines or surfaces as possible with wicker, wood and other soft, natural materials. Invest in big, fluffy towels for everyday luxury. Complete the look with on-trend butterfly-themed wallpaper or accessories.
Splashes of black offered an inexpensive way to add drama to bathrooms in recent years. In 2017, navy blue is the new black. Add it in the form of accents, or create a navy accent wall as a focal point. Want to go bolder? Try mixing unrelated prints. Pick out a single common color or as a unifying element.
Whatever your style or budget, it’s easy to stay in tune with the top bathroom trends in 2017. From creating a softer, more natural focus to investing in a spa-style overhaul, you don’t have to be a design expert to create a bathroom you’ll be proud to show off.
