Emerging Bathroom Remodeling Trends
August 29, 2014
Bathrooms are not what they used to be. In the past the bathroom has been a purely functional place. Over the last fifty years bathrooms have become much more important as a selling point in the home. In recent years the emphasis on the number of, size, and functionality of bathrooms has grown. Many people see their bathroom as an oasis, a place to get away from the business and stress of their lives. This year we have seen some spa-like trends emerge in bathroom remodels that we absolutely love!
Soaking tubs are back.
With the stresses of everyday life reaching an all time high, a relaxing soak in a deep tub is more needed than ever before. 2014 has seen a rise in the popularity of soaking tubs and this trend is expected to continue into 2015. While soaking tubs continue to grow in popularity, surprisingly jacuzzi tubs are waning in popularity. Soaking tubs have truly withstood the test of time.
Shower seats are a hit.
Large, spacious showers with a built in seat have gained popularity in leaps and bounds over the last few years and that popularity continues to grow. In 2013, 70% of bathroom designers included shower seats in their bathroom remodels, where space allowed. Shower seats are an important safety feature for elderly homeowners and are not likely to go out of style. Not only do they offer a moment of relaxation in the present, shower seats are a wise investment for the future.
Comfort is key.
Thus far 2014 has shown a rise in the demand for comfort height toilets and vanities. While you may be thinking primarily about your comfort level now, it is always wise to plan for the future. While trends come and go throughout the years, we truly feel that some trends deserve to stay. Thinking about the future is essential when remodeling a bathroom. Comfort height toilets and vanities will never be a pain in the back (or knees) in the future.
No threshold showers on the rise.
Similarly to the rise in demand for comfort height toilets and vanities, no threshold showers are gaining in popularity. Not only do they look clean, elegant and minimalist, they also make sense for the future. Shower lips or “curbs” can cause a tripping hazard and a no threshold shower eliminates that risk.
Show your style with mosaic tiles:
Whether a subtle flowing pattern or a bold geometric design, mosaic tiles are all the rage in 2014. An intricately tiled wall can show off your personal style and take your bathroom to the next level.
Bathroom trends come and go, but these emerging trends in 2014 are sure to stay. With the future and spa-like relaxation in mind, this year’s trends will add value to your home and bliss to your hectic life. Please contact us today to start designing the bathroom of your dreams!
