With more people focusing on mindfulness and self-care, bathrooms shift from private, utilitarian spaces to open, spa-like environments. Homeowners are focused on the accoutrements, including free-standing tubs. According to Houzz’s 2018 Bathroom Trends Study , 80% of home remodelers were planning to upgrade their bathtubs. A soaking tub was the most popular option and received 69% of the vote.
A classic tuxedo kitchen is typically defined by white upper cabinets and black lower cabinets. The dual-tone is chic and timeless. Although sleek, all-white kitchens have been popular in recent years, professionals are seeing a return to black in kitchen cabinets, range hoods and island accents. The color can be edgy, chic and surprisingly practical for some homeowners with pets or kids. Expect to see a lot more “tuxedo” kitchens contrasting black with white walls, backsplashes and marble countertops.
