The popularity of all-white and black-and-white bathrooms will no doubt continue to endure. "These are classic color schemes that never go out of style," Maykut says. But that's not to say that plenty of color trends don't come and go. In recent years, the world of home design has witnessed the ascendance of crisp, moody gray. Until now, baths have been the one room not dominated by the new "it" color. According to Maykut, however, "2017 may change that," with the appearance of grays as light as dove and dark as charcoal. In addition, Maykut and others anticipate a trend toward green—"not the avocado green of the 1970s," he clarifies, but a range of tranquil, nature-inspired botanical shades like sage, moss, and olive.
