When it comes to bath sinks and faucets, it’s all about getting personal, with consumers looking for unique opportunities to make their baths their own – whether that means mixing and matching textures or going with a “new traditional” look to add a more custom feel to the space. Clean lines and neutral colors are still popular, while a host of finishes from classic chrome to antique nickel or pewter are adding style to the space.
Below are some of the hottest trends in bath sinks and faucets right now:
--Personalization is one of the biggest trends in bath sinks and faucets, with consumers seeking unique ways to put their handprint on their bath space.
--Traditional styles remain strong in bath faucets, though the definition of traditional has broadened considerably in a nod to the personalization trend. Transitional styling remains a strong counter trend, and there is some demand for contemporary styling, particularly on either coast.
--Texture is a hot trend right now in the bath, and textures are being mixed and matched to emphasize sink and faucet finishes – the rough with the smooth, high gloss with matte, etc.
--At the other end of the spectrum, some designers are choosing fully coordinated finishes and accessories throughout the bath to pull together the design and create a more streamlined appearance.
--In sink design, the trend remains toward “safe” colors, which also provide the clean, crisp look that is in style right now.
--Chrome and brushed or satin nickel remain the most popular faucet finishes in the bath, though oil-rubbed brass is holding its own, and antique nickel or pewter and wrought iron are up and coming finishes.
