Circle No. 173 on Product Card in kitchen designs for years; this trend is showing up in bathrooms as well. The finish mix allows designers to add some character to smaller spaces." "The wider range of finishes and details offered for wood and metal products expresses the market's openness and developing taste for more interesting appearances," says Lacava. "Metal consoles in brushed brass or matte black, woodwork with metal inserts on door and drawer fronts or countertops are gaining popularity," he says. While he believes all shades of white do well in the bathroom due to the connotation of cleanliness and hygiene, he also sees demand for colors falling in the natural spectrum, but diverting away from white, such as gray, blue, taupe, black and natural wood. In addition to the strength of white and gray paints, Wilcox says that in stains, neutral and taupe shades are important. "Visual and physical texture is very important as well.

For those with a more eclectic style who prefer a pop of color to liven up the space, they turn to rich hues like navy blue. Matte black and gold toned hardware are also trending," he adds. Nat Mucha, executive v.p. of bath for Cerritos, CA-based Fairmont Designs agrees that white and gray are holding strong in painted finishes.

Neilson sees combining different materials to add warmth and texture to more contemporary lines as a major bath design trend. Consistently pop- ular materials are those that integrate natural influences, such as concrete and reclaimed wood products, Neilson adds. When it comes to color, gray is still in style, and they're seeing increased warm gray tones, she says. Baber notes a trend toward warm stains and paints as well, along with combination finishes.
