There’s nothing quite like a contemporary kitchen or bathroom to make your home look and feel more modern and luxurious. But how do you select fixtures, furniture, and features that other people will also love, especially if you anticipate selling your home in the near future?
Houzz, one of America’s leading home remodeling and design experts, recently compiled a list of contemporary kitchen and bath trends that made a statement at this year’s International Contemporary Furniture Fair in New York City. We’ll take a look at some of these products and styles below so you can see what’s trending in contemporary kitchen and bath design. Then, you’ll be better equipped to see what’s possible for your own kitchen or bathroom remodel.
5 Contemporary Kitchen and Bath Trends to Watch For This Year
1. A focus on wellness at home
The surge in interest for home wellness spaces is undeniable, whether it’s a direct result of the pandemic or simply a growing desire for sanctuaries within our own walls. And for many, the ultimate haven of tranquility lies in the form of a home spa – specifically, a spa-like transformation of the master bathroom.
In this Irvine bathroom remodel, for example, a freestanding tub sits serenely in one corner and provides a peaceful place to relax and rejuvenate after a long, hard day.
2. Gold fixtures and finishes
Gold-plated fixtures is a contemporary trend that’s making its way into both kitchens and bathrooms across the country. From sinks and faucets to cabinet hardware and more, glittering gold lends a feeling of simple luxury.
The same Irvine clients we mentioned above opted for gold finishes and fixtures throughout their contemporary chic bathroom remodel as well as their guest bathroom renovation. Gold faucets, shower fixtures, and trim exude a glamorous and sophisticated look while fitting perfectly with the overall color scheme.
3. Eco-friendly products and materials
The link between personal well-being and environmental responsibility is stronger than ever. Homeowners are choosing eco-friendly materials for their kitchens and baths, supporting manufacturers who demonstrate responsible sourcing, energy efficiency, and waste reduction in their production processes.
One of the leading manufacturers in this area is GRAFF, a luxury bathroom and kitchen fixture manufacturer headquartered in Milwaukee, WI. Openly sharing about their commitment to going green, this company operates under the philosophy that helping to conserve precious natural resources is a responsibility, not a choice. As such, they produce products that meet the Environmental Protection Agency’s WaterSense criteria. They’re also committed to reducing time, energy, and material waste throughout their manufacturing processes.
4. Metallic finishes and fixtures
From chrome and stainless steel to brushed nickel, bronze, and brass, metal fixtures are all the rage, and for good reason. Known for their durability and resistance to chipping or cracking, metallic fixtures are easy to maintain, more eco-friendly than their plastic counterparts, and have an aesthetic appeal. They can add a touch of elegance and sophistication to any bathroom, regardless of whether the overall style is modern, traditional, or vintage.
In this Irvine bathroom remodel, metallic fixtures pair perfectly with the overall coastal farmhouse design.
5. Pretty in pink
It’s not uncommon for particular colors to become popular from time to time. For this year’s contemporary bath trends, the color is pink! From terrazzo sinks to countertops and tile designs, you can expect to see pink bathroom designs make their way into bathroom remodels for 2024 and beyond.
