A recent study conducted by the home design site Houzz reported that homeowners are undertaking remodeling projects with the intent to stay in their home for the long term. The number one motivator for renovations? To improve the look and feel of the space. Additionally, bathrooms came out as the highest priority (by room) on homeowner’s remodeling agendas.
Here are a few bathroom looks we are loving right now – which is your favorite? Are you planning a bathroom remodel in the next year?
Calm, cool and collected
Bathroom featuring Progress Lighting's new Elina collection
Why we love it: The textured wall treatment pairs beautifully with the smooth, opal glass of our new Elina vanity fixture. Cool hues and colors found in nature are a top bathroom pick for 2015, as they contribute to an environment ideal for relaxation.
Bathroom design tip: The amount of light in your bathroom should influence your decision on color. While dark wall or accessory colors can be fabulous, you want to make sure the bathroom gets enough natural light, or displays a layered lighting approach.
Clean, crisp and crafty
Stephen Alexander Homes bathroom featuring Progress Lighting's North Park collection.
Why we love it: This bright bathroom design offers a crisp, contemporary style with a craftsman flair. The square shape of our North Park vanity fixtures allude to an earlier time, but it’s updated style gives this bathroom a fresh appeal.
Bathroom design tip: Fixtures with milky-white diffused shades are your best bets for smooth, even illumination at the mirror.
Contemporary meets traditional
Bathroom design as seen on "For Your Home With Vicki Payne" featuring Progress Lighting Academy sconces
Why we love it: The bright, contemporary design of our Academy pendants beautifully complements the warm, traditional wood tones in the cabinets. The wall art further plays into this juxtaposition bringing classic elements to the space.
Bathroom design tip: Bathrooms receive considerable wear and tear and it’s important to choose cabinet materials and finishes that can withstand heat, water and excessive moisture.
Playing with pendants
Toll Brothers' bathroom design featuring Progress Lighting glass pendants.
Why we love it: Bring a contemporary feel to your bathroom design by swapping out your typical vanity fixtures with some pendants with personality. This Toll Brothers bathroom uses a neutral color scheme to calm down the space, but the pendants add a twist!
Bathroom design tip: Pendants can be a great alternative for high ceilings, as they bring the light down to just the right height for completing everyday tasks.

Why we love it: Today, bathrooms are all about creating a space to unwind and relax. Give this everyday area a luxurious appeal by adding a chandelier.
Bathroom design tip: Consult an electrician in your area before installing a fixture about the tub to ensure it complies with building codes.
