2013 Year in Review: CaseIndy Bathroom Remodeling Projects

2013 was the year of the bathroom remodel in the Greater Indianapolis area. From sprucing up powder baths, to creating custom master suites, each project brought upgraded functionality and aesthetics to the space. Emerging trends in bathroom design are exemplified in the design and material choices we see in these projects. Aging-in-place, saying goodbye to the garden tub, and the growth of the luxury shower are just a few of the common elements being incorporated into current bathrooms.

Marble Makes a Comeback:

Black and white bathrooms were popular in 2013, and Carrara marble emerged as the material of choice in these spaces. Although these three bathrooms all used the same material, the design of each space is very much their own.

Feature Walls:

Many of our master bathroom designs included feature walls in 2013. Stacked stone, tile medallions and decorative tile were used to add a personalized wow-factor to the space.

Stunning Powder Baths:

Creating a hall bath with a statement was a popular trend in Indianapolis bathroom remodeling this year. Accent walls, decorative tile, and high-end materials ensured that guests were wowed.

Going Large and Luxurious in the Master Shower:

Axing the huge garden tub of the 80s and 90s and replacing it with a spacious, amenity-filled shower continued to dominate bathroom design in 2013. At a minimum, a fixed and a hand-held shower head were installed, but many homeowners opted for more than two. Decorative tile on the walls and floors, as well as frameless shower doors completed the high-end look of these pampering spaces.

Hexagons are a growing trend in interior design, and the bathroom was no exception. Shower tile floors seemed to be the most popular area to place this intriguing geometric pattern.

Grey Cabinetry:

We heard the predictions for the expected growth in grey cabinetry at the beginning of 2013, and the experts were right. Our clients were thrilled with the color offerings by our cabinet lines. The soft, calming look is well-suited for a spa-like master bathroom design.

The architectural interest created by adding this rounded shape to a these rectangular spaces was appealing to some of our clients this year. The design also furthers the idea of creating a memorable master shower experience.

Universal Design/Aging-in-Place:

We have written quite a bit over the year about the growth of universal design and aging-in-place design. Creating a bathroom that functions well for people with mobility issues no longer means being stuck with an institutional look. As you can see by the pictures below, these user-friendly designs are gorgeous.
