A Brooklyn Bathroom – exclusive guest post by Megan Gates


Brooklyn‘s design trends of 2012 are unique and fun. There are numerous cool new fashion trends that have emerged and some do not even require an interior designer to implement. Let’s take a look at how these two design trends can give Brooklyn homes a fresh new look.


Bathroom areas must be clean, fresh, appealing and inviting to keep a homebuyer interested. Some designers are adding uniquely designed bathtubs to bathrooms to tempt even the most die-hard shower fans into the tub.


For instance, one designer added a stone-based bathtub to a New York home that weighs nearly a ton. The free-standing bathtub is a work of art as it sits, stately, in the bathroom. Many people cannot help but marvel at its beauty and give the bathtub a try. Most people fall in love with one soak. This is yet another way that New Yorkers can heal and enjoy their homes without ever leaving.


Glass vessel sinks are popular in 2012. These vessel sinks are like modern works of art. An ordinary bathroom is transformed with a simple replacement of a sink. The cost is small compared to the value that it could add to a home. Every homeowner should consider updating the bath with a vessel sink to remain up-to-date with the latest trends.

Most designs are made of all natural stone materials. The decorative accents include glass or ceramic tile, metals, hardwood, marble and bamboo. The freestanding tubs emerge from the floor similar to how vessel sinks sit atop the basin. When the tubs are freestanding, they are often the focal point of the room. Many Brooklyn homes feature black stone instead of the traditional white porcelain tubs. Black is making quite a statement. When paired with lime green, baby blue or ruby red tile, the tub can make quite the statement.


Adding the latest design trends can update the home and make the home feel fresh and new. Some changes may even improve a home’s value. Whether shopping for a new home or updating an existing home, consider some of these popular designs.
