2013 Bathroom Trends Worth Updating For

glass-showerThe 2013 bathroom remodeling trends aren’t a huge departure from 2012 at Metropolitan Bath and Tile. Again, we see the natural look predominating – with the emphasis on luxury spa features.

Nature Inspired. With more bathroom tile patterns, tones and textures available than ever before in the Metropolitan Bath & Tile showrooms we can help you create that soothing paradise you’ve envisioned that’s a masterpiece of water, wood and stone  – so perfect & relaxing.

Luxury Reigns. When updating your bathroom there are lots of special features that can give you the feeling that you’re luxuriating in a spa. Save the time and plane tickets – you can have it all in your own home. Sleek spa-style vanities, whirlpool tubs, steam baths, saunas and jetted showers sleekly enclosed in glass frameless doors  all reproduce the ambiance of a get-away experience. Let MetroBath show you what’s available.

Green up your Bathroom. Green is a good investment. The new low flow and dual flush toilets save you water use – and are good for the planet.


And speaking of Green, along with the natural colors that


have been so ubiquitous in the past few years, you might try

the Pantone Color of the Year for 2013 – Emerald. A soothing green that adds vibrant color – good for accents and bringing out wood tones – and it harmonizes with plants you may have in your bathroom. Try it for walls, mosaics, glass tile accents & your linens to enhance your sense of well-being and bring the living color of nature to your bathroom.

Light Bright. Make sure you have lots of light: natural light from larger windows, utilitarian light, glamorous lighting i.e. chandeliers, spotlights for your dark corners and focal points. Mix up your functional and ambient lighting and you’ll have a bathroom that’s easier to use and comforting at all hours of the day or night.


Streamline Your Design.  Traditional styling is still a favorite but bathroom vanities are moving away from the ornate to the simple Asian influence or vintage look of spas. It’s a modern, transitional look that works with most home decor.

Along with minimizing your bathroom’s lines, minimize its distracting clutter with organizing drawers and cabinets where you can. Vanities with drawers, wall-mounted styles,  linen closets with ample shelving are musts in keeping your room looking open and picture perfect.

Coordinate. There are more options for bathroom accessories coming all the time. Your Metropolitan Bath and Tile Designer will show you how to create a harmonizing look instead of a conglomerated mix of shower hardware, faucets, towel bars and soap dishes you may have now. Try a new towel warmer or update your hardware and fixtures with one of the newer finishes like soft Nickel or rich Bronze. Always go for QUALITY in fixtures – it pays off after years of use.

Miles of Tile. Bathrooms of today have come a long way from the wildly-colored, blocky-tile rooms from the last century. The new tiles are bold but natural looking. Mosaics and glass tile accents are made for expressing your style and adding visual interest – smartly tasteful on walls, cubbies and backsplashes.

A Bathroom For All Ages. Don’t neglect to add grab bars and seating for the shower. Safety & functionality is always in style whether you’re 8 or 80; an athlete or have mobility problems.

Whatever your style or your budget, a fresh bathroom remodeling update or total makeover from Metropolitan Bath and Tile will get your home’s New Year off to a promising start – and you’ll take pride and pleasure in your new, gorgeous bathroom for years to come with MetroBath‘s one–year warranty for labor and materials warrantied for up to 10 years.
