Remodeling a bathroom is not cheap, so if you're going to put time and money into a bathroom renovation, you want to make sure you create a look that lasts — not one that will look dated two or three years from now. But how do you create timeless appeal in the bathroom? Look, in particular, towards these material and style choices that have already stood the test of time and are likely to continue doing so.
Tile trends seem to change by the year! One minute, natural stone is trendy, and the next, it's all about the colorful glass. Through all of these trend changes, however, subway tile has never gone out of style. These rectangular white tiles will look as beautiful in your shower 10 years from now just as they do currently. There is a little room for customization and creativity with your grout choice. You can use dark grout to really contrast the white tiles and make them stand out or light grout to create a cooler, more cohesive look.
Wood may not seem like the most suitable choice for a bathroom since it doesn't stand up well to moisture, but there are a few places where you can use it without worry. And natural wood has been stylish throughout the home for practically as long as people have been building homes. Have your remodeling contractor include some built-in wood shelves, or ask for a wooden accent wall behind the mirror. Some people even choose real wood vanities for their bathrooms.
All stone counters are pretty timeless, but there is some variation as to which colors are in style at any one time. If you want to create a truly timeless look, then opt for marble counters. Marble matches everything, so you can change the color of your walls without getting new counters. And it has always been seen as fashionable and beautiful.
Sheet vinyl flooring goes in and out of style, as does natural stone. If you want a floor that is timeless, try going with a floating floor. These flooring systems snap together. If you pick a neutral color, the floor will still be stylish many years from now. And if you do decide you want a different floor, it will be much easier to pull up the old flooring and replace it than if you were to choose tile or sheet vinyl.
Remodeling a bathroom is a big endeavor, so make sure you do it in a way that will last by selecting these timeless options.
