The Year Ahead: 2016 Bathroom Trends

A new year means new looks and emerging trends for cars, fashion, technology and, of course, interior design. If a bathroom refresh or remodel is in your plans for 2016, you will want your design to look fresh and current. In the high-traffic and highly functional bathroom, your countertops will play a big role in making the space look and function at its best.

Latest Trends in Bathroom Countertops


You will want bathroom counters that are water resistant, durable and low-maintenance. Luckily, the trends for the upcoming year are as aesthetically pleasing as they are functional. Here are a few of the hottest bathroom counters creating a buzz for 2016:

  • Quartz – Quartz is a timeless selection for bathroom counters, so it is no surprise that it remains a popular choice for 2016. Consistency of colour is one of quartz’s major advantages. Quartz countertops are available in a huge variety of colours and do not require any sealing.
  • Onyx – It is hard to ignore an onyx countertop. It truly has a transformational impact on a bathroom space and its beautiful, natural patterns and colouring make it a unique choice. It looks lavish, can increase the value of your home and also comes in a range of colours to suit your décor. While it is easy to clean and maintain, it is also a pricier option, cannot handle heat and scratches easily. If you are prone to leaving a curling wand to heat in the bathroom or absent-mindedly setting down your hot hair dryer, you could damage the countertop.
  • Granite – If it isn’t broke, don’t fix it, right? Granite countertops may not be a new trend, but it certainly is among the hardest to break. These counters are durable and resistant to both heat and water, making them a great choice for family bathrooms. They provide a classic look with unique speckling and swirls.
  • Solid Surface – Solid surface counters offer nonporous, durable, stain-resistant options that are great for those who like low maintenance features with a creative look. With hundreds of colours and styles to choose from, like Corian® by DuPont and Wilsonart®, it’s easy to customize your space. Whether you are going for a modern look, a traditional take on your power room, or want counters that make a statement, there is a solid surface option that can create the look you desire.
