A mix of “grandma” and “millennial”, the Grandmillennial trend is as nostalgic as it is modern. In bathroom and kitchen design, Grandmillenial combines detailed patterns and intricate ornamentation with warm woods and muted colours, an updated take on vintage decor.
A recent design article by Kohler suggests Grandmillennial puts an emphasis on personalization. “Old family photos, generational artifacts, and other items that have personal or sentimental significance are right at home here. Some may find the aesthetic cluttered or arbitrary, but that’s what makes it appealing and what its advocates find the trend cozy and comforting.”
The bathroom is an ideal space to bring Grandmillenial back to life. “Unexpected mirror shapes and frame-filled walls create an inviting wistfulness,” says Kohler, “while traditional items like console tables and pedestal sinks find balance among contemporary colours and patterns.”
In the kitchen, the Grandmillenial trend combines modern performance and efficiency with throwbacks to simpler times. Vintage cabinetry and patterned tilework or flooring pair with contemporary touches like dark stone and mixed metal finishes.
Kohler, Victoria & Albert, Riobel, Moen, Native Trails, American Standard and Cheviot are just a few of our product lines at Knowles Plumbing that can help you create a Grandmillenial look. For ideas please visit our Knowles Plumbing showroom, 279 Manitoba Street, Bracebridge, Muskoka, Ontario.
