Top 10 Bathroom Trends for 2016

1. Greater acceptance of aging-in-place amenities: no-threshold showers, grab bars, higher vanity heights, chair-height toilets

2. Transitional is the most popular style, pulling away from contemporary

3. White is the most popular fixture color, and whites and grays are the most popular overall color schemes

4. More open shelving and floating vanities

5. More built-in storage functionality: more roll-out shelves in bath cabinetry, more “hidden” electrical outlets for blow dryers, etc.

6. Undermount sinks are far and away the most popular sink style. Emerging: 15% used a trough sink, which may increase slightly.

7. When tubs are installed in master bathrooms, they are most likely to be freestanding

8. Increasing use of shower amenities such as lights, built-in seats and benches, and a hand shower in addition to the mounted showerhead

9. Polished chrome is the most popular faucet finish

10. Other amenities specified by at least 25 percent of NKBA members in 2015:

a. Easy maintenance features

b. Electric radiant floor heating

c. Master bathrooms with coffee bars, microwaves, and wet bars

d. TV in mirror

e. Quiet or soft-close toilet seat
