If you’re thinking about remodeling your bathroom this year, you’ll want to know that what’s trending right now is clean, simple and practical. What’s great about this design trend is that it creates a bathroom space with a look and feel that will last for years to come. Many of this year’s style ideas also work great for small spaces, so if room in your bathroom is at a premium, then you might want to take advantage of these top five bathroom trends for 2014.

Black’s Back: As we mentioned in our kitchen articles last month, black is back as a popular color for kitchen appliances. Guess what? It’s hot in bathroom fixtures right now, too. You can go bold and opt for black tubs, sinks and toilets, but if you’re not quite ready for that, consider black faucets or lighting fixtures, or incorporating some black in your tiling or countertops.

Bath Mattes: For a bathroom with character, consider neutral matte tiles in your new bathroom design. Trending tiles have a soft matte finish look similar to natural concrete and are available in hues ranging from pale greys to off-blacks. They look great both on the floor and on shower walls.

Kick Your Old Shower to the Curb: Or, just kick the curb. Trending curbless showers have flooring that runs directly into the shower and works especially well in smaller spaces. This look is very clean, sleek and chic, and allows for continuity of design right into the shower.

Step Onto the Ledge: Ledges look great in showers and behind vanities and freestanding tubs, and help to maximize functional bathroom space. They’re perfect for keeping useful items at hand, and look great when they’re integrated into the design by wrapping them in matching tile.

Keep Your Vanity Afloat: Wall-mount vanities are very popular this season. They give the feeling of more space, and because they’re up off the floor, they allow for easier cleaning. And, floating vanities let you show off your new flooring – why cover up your beautiful new design?
