Master Your Master Bath


Let’s admit something: master bathrooms serve as a sanctuary to many of us. And, according to REALTOR® Mag, they are often a driving force in a buyer’s purchase decision.

 

Today’s master bathrooms are influenced by the following seven style categories, all creating an atmosphere of personal indulgence.

 

Aesthetic

Personal preference usually leads the way in the creation of the master bath. However, these days the preference seems to be classical or historic styling, with industrial or rustic elements being introduced: wood-grain accents, pendant lights and other smaller touches.

 

Fixtures

More cabinets are being fitted with drawers rather than doors to make accessing contents easier, which follows the trend in kitchens.

 

Faucets

Though chrome and nickel are still appealing to most, rose gold, bronze, oil-rubbed bronze, and brushed gold are the trending faucet finishes to consider.

White will forever remain a favorite palette for master baths, but color experts cite trends that now lean towards less pure options such as a warm taupe. Experts also see an increase in tone-on-tone brushed effects. Regarding rugs, introduce texture with Turkish oushak or faux animal rugs.

 

Walls, floors and countertops

Subway tiles remain the classic choice for bathroom walls, but they’re becoming larger than than the traditional 3-by-6-inch size. Floors are also being laid with larger-format tiles, while granite countertops are disappearing and marble is becoming irresistible.
