Latest Bathroom Remodeling Trends

 In Latest News

Bathrooms are the second most popular rooms in the home to remodel, right behind kitchens. If your bathroom has become less than satisfactory, it may be time to update and renovate. Here are different options for making your bathroom feel like it’s up to speed with the rest of your home. These options are among the more modern, prevalent choices for remodeling in 2017.

Spa showers

The idea of turning a bathroom into a spa-like retreat has not lost favor over the past few years. People are opting for an airy feel to the shower area, with frameless sheets of glass rather than standard shower doors. This option makes the glass appear to float in the air, and gives the entire bathroom a more open look. Large showerheads are also ideal, giving the impression of showering by natural rainfall, rather than a boring old showerhead. The goal is to be completely covered by the water stream without having to change positions.

Vessel sinks

Adding dimension to bathroom vanities, vessel sinks have become favorable. They’re elegant and they contribute to the overall height of the sink, removing the need to bend over to wash your hands. These sinks come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and materials. They’re one of the easiest sinks to install and they give the entire bathroom a sense of style and versatility. Since they do come in so many different shapes and sizes, it is relatively simple to add a vessel sink that fits with the bathroom’s established theme.

Heated floor

In order to eliminate the uncomfortable sensation of stepping onto freezing bathroom tiles, homeowners have started installing radiant floor heating under their bathroom tiles. The heating elements come in a series of mats that are not visible once installed. They keep the floor a comfortable temperature in the winter months so that there is no sudden shock when entering the space barefoot. Depending on preference, these floor mats can be used to create a warm floor, or to heat the entire bathroom area.

Thinner, Deeper Tubs

In an effort to save space and “open up” bathroom spaces, bathtubs have become thinner and deeper, still large enough to comfortably fit two people, but often times the tub shares a space with a shower or vanity. Traditionally, large bathtubs were either diagonally placed in a corner, or directly in the center of the room, both of which took up an unnecessary amount of space. Tucking the tub into a shared area saves the square footage of the bathroom and still keeps a comfortable bathtub available. It’s the best of both worlds.
