On-Trend Transformations

 

Although they’re often the smallest rooms in the house, they’re also among the most essential and most commonly remodeled spaces. When you approach design with both function and style in mind, you can elevate your bathroom to be much more than an afterthought.

While the bathroom is a space where function matters greatly, that’s no reason to skip adding personal touches to the space. From fixtures and decor that reflect your personality to accessories and features that fit your lifestyle, you can incorporate details that make your bathroom as much about you as the rest of your home.

The focal point of many bathrooms is the cabinetry, and the array of products available today make it possible to create nearly any look you can imagine. With an option such as Wellborn Cabinet Inc.’s Elegant Bath Collection, the possibilities are endless. The extensive collection of designer vanity suites, basic vanities and accessories fits a broad range of design aesthetics with an array of popular door styles and finishes.

If a remodel is in your plans, consider these in-the-now design trends to help create a bathroom retreat that blends your individual style with everyday luxury.

Contemporary style

Whether it’s a desire to capture the classic Zen spa style at home or simply a growing penchant for modern interiors, the bathroom is no exception for those who gravitate toward contemporary design. Cabinetry featuring clean styles, sleek hardware and full overlay doors lend well to a contemporary look. Add complementary lighting and fixtures, and keep accessories and decor simple and clutter-free to round out the look.

Painted cabinetry

Many a bathroom has fallen victim to monochromatic monotony. Fortunately, these days more bathrooms are getting a fresh look filled with colorful expression. If you’ve considered the cabinetry off-limits before, now is the time to brighten up your bathroom and make a statement with boldly hued woodwork. For a more subtle look, glazed richly toned stains may be the answer. Take another step toward this color-friendly style with neutral painted finishes and paints with glazes. Or go all-in with fully custom painted cabinetry, with Wellborn Cabinet Inc.’s ColorInspire program, that draws from the broad selection of shades from the extensive paint programs of well-known brands such as Sherwin Williams, Benjamin Moore and Valspar.

Floating vanities

In keeping with the trend toward modern motifs, floating vanities provide a clean, minimalistic appearance in a contemporary design. Particularly in a smaller room, this open, airy look is a stylish alternative to the pedestal sink as it lends an illusion of space while bringing expanded flooring into view. Paired with the proper cabinetry and color scheme, the floating vanity can work equally well in a transitional design.

Storage solutions

From pull-outs, tilt-ups and roll-outs to hidden outlets, simplified storage is in big demand, according to the National Kitchen & Bath Association’s 2016 Design Trends Report. Keeping clutter off the counter is easier than ever with clever storage solutions such as Wellborn Cabinet Inc.’s accessory base pullouts or toe kick drawers that create an extra place to stow your bath essentials in the space below the cabinet. Another solution to a common problem, the U-shaped sliding shelf wraps around the sink plumbing to hold towels, soaps and hair accessories, providing easy access to stored items while maximizing storage space inside your vanity.

Choose Your Door Design

The type of door overlay you choose for your bathroom cabinetry can make a big difference in the overall look of the room. Determine which door style fits best with your design:

Full overlay doors span over the frame and have a concealed hinge for a clean look.

Traditional overlay doors reveal some of the frame for a classic design.

Inset doors are placed inside the cabinet frame. Some brands, such as Wellborn Cabinet, Inc., offer options like beaded or non-beaded face frames.

Grey Is The New White?

Grey White Wellborn Mark Theresa MyFixitUpLife Kitchen Cabinet Design

Why grey?

The color has been surfacing as an increasingly talked-about color in home finishes lately. And I have a few ideas why.

To its credit, grey gives a softer-than-white contrast from the bold power choices of turquoise and yellow that are trending as popular in home decor and maybe we’re looking for calmer, relaxing hues to surround our family’s hearth.

Whatever the reason, designers are looking at grey as an increasingly popular choice for home finishes. And the product designers are giving us more options when it comes to the shades of grey. At the Kitchen & Bath Industry ShowWellborn showcased their new shades of grey including Willow.

While some designers say ‘grey is the new white,’ it’s not exactly taking over white in market share or popularity. But it’s a hue that might be perfect as a backdrop for your next remodeling project.

Gray. The New Neutral.

At this past year’s KBIS we debuted our new gray named “Willow” it was met with much excitement from our dealers, team members, design partners and the K&B industry as a whole! Our Corporate Designer Karen Salyer worked with our Dealer-Designer Council and our marketing team to achieve the correct hue answer to the new neutral question.

The transitional style kitchen also showcases components that are part of our Active Living Collection – the open space under the cooktop is a great space for legroom  – whether wheelchair or a chair / stool – and adds interest to the space as well.  One of the many elements that increased the appeal of this kitchen was the use of lighting! Lighting was used in the normal areas, wall cabinets with glass doors and in the leg room area under the cooktop but lighting was also added to base cabinetry in hard to see corners and where cabinetry kits were installed. Just another excellent feature for those clients with aging eyes, limited sight or really for everyone!

HGTV KBIS 2013: What’s Hot in Kitchens

Excerpt from: KBIS 2013: What’s Hot In Kitchens

by  May 1, 2013

If you saw Kayla’s bathroom trends post then you know that we recently spent a few days in the Big Easy for the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show checking out the hottest new products before they hit shelves. Trendspotting at a trade show is always fun but unlike other shows we attend where design is the only focus, kitchens and baths are spaces where form and function are equally important so technology is key. If you’re in the market for a new kitchen, or just thinking about a few upgrades, here are the freshest trends/technologies to make your kitchen really cook!

Wondering what color to paint your cabinets? I polled a few manufacturers and while white cabinets continue to be tops, gray is the shade they’re betting on to break white’s top spot. This kitchen by Wellborn pairs soft gray cabinets with richly stained wood — combining cabinet colors is another kitchen trend that’s holding strong:
