Bathroom Remodeling Services in Plano - Looking Ahead to 2014

Transitional Bathroom Remodeling Style - Plano Design Trends 2014The first signs of the fall season are already showing up in stores in the form of Halloween greeting cards. We’re already over two thirds through 2013, and the holidays will once again be here before we know it. Strange how a summer can seem extra long yet fly by so quickly at the same time.It is also almost time for The National Kitchen and Bath Association to start assessing this year’s kitchen and bathroom remodeling trend statistics for their 2014 report. It’s nice to keep on the pulse of the country’s bathroom remodeling trends to provide us with some fresh inspiration when needed. Here are the details of last year’s report. It should be interesting to see what changes have developed into the next year.What is Transitional Style?I think it’s safe to say that a good majority of us both like and dislike certain aspects of traditional as well as contemporary styles. Traditional design is timeless and provides us with feelings of warmth and comfort that most of us enjoy having in our home. Contemporary designs are loved for its clean lines and graceful modern forms. Transitional design combines all of these qualities, and has been the most popular style in 2012 and the first part of 2013, at 63%. A lot has changed since 2010, when traditional remodeling projects were taking over at 75%.Popular color palettes in 2012 have followed suit, as the neutral and subtle tones of transitional design have topped the charts as well. 71% of the color palettes reported by bathroom remodeling services across the country focused on whites and off-whites. Beiges and grays came in 2nd and 3rd place, respectively.Flooring and SinksCeramic and porcelain flooring has by far been the most popular flooring material in the last few years. In 2010, 2011, and 2012, 91%, 93%, and 83% of reported bathroom remodeling projects have used ceramic or porcelain for their bathroom’s flooring. In 2011 and 2012, natural stone was the 2nd most popular choice at 77% in 2011 and down to 57% by the start of 2013.The two most popular types of sinks used were under mounts and integrated sinks. Under mounts have declined from 94% to 87% by the start of 2013. Integrated sinks have risen from 35% to 41%.The Future is Looking BeautifulIt should be interesting to see what the NKBA reports in 2014.
