According to the Star Gazette’s Home trends for 2010 article, they are reporting that they are continuing to see the trend of bathrooms becoming more spa-like, continuing through the 2010. This reinforces our own reports on home spas, and how we see this trend continues to become more popular (see home spa blog posts here).
We have also seen a return to a more “comfortable style” which is a broader topic and also very evident, nothing is more comfortable than a home spa if you ask us! The Star Gazette article goes on to say:
“The transformation of bathrooms into spas, complete with whirlpools and multiple body sprays in the shower, will continue next year. ‘We want to bring that spa feeling into the bathroom,’ says Tammy Altilio, co-owner of Kitchen & Bath Gallery in Horseheads. ‘That’s the way people want to enjoy the space in a relaxed environment.’ Glass tiles are a popular decorating accent in the bathroom, especially in hues of blues and greens. For the rest of the bathroom, Altilio says lighter colors will predominate next year as darker hues will make the room seem smaller.”
Some of the best ways to turn a bathroom into a luxurious home spa include installing a steam shower, whirlpool tub, sauna as well as using materials such as quartz, tile, colored glass and acrylic. We are sure we will see many more spa-like bathroom designs in the coming months as this trends continues to expand.
