As a homeowner, you want to stay updated on the latest trends in remodeling, especially if you have plans of getting some work done soon. Advantage Contracting, top remodeling contractor, gives a few ideas on the latest developments in bathroom remodels.
Smaller, More Efficient
Not everyone has the space for a large, luxurious bathroom. But these days, it’s not about going big anymore; it’s about being efficient in the use of space. A more open design is in vogue. Instead of cabinets, there are more shelves. Artfully designed and high-tech toilet seats can take the place of bigger ones. Single-person, freestanding bathtubs take the place of double tubs. You may even completely forego the tub and put only a single-person shower room in its place. Use clear glass for the shower instead of frosted glass or an opaque wall, to open up the space visually. Utilize every inch wisely and you’ll see how a small but efficient bathroom can be just as luxurious as a big one.
Accent Wall, Designed Floor
Break the monotony with an accent wall, which defines your personal style and dictates the mood of the bathroom. You can even have it designed with some art, but if you want to do this more easily, just pick a different kind of tile or other wall material. Don’t like the walls to be too busy? Talk to your bathroom remodeling contractors about changing up the floor instead. Not a lot of bathrooms have floors that can spark conversations; here’s your chance to change that.
More Tech, More Appliances
Good news, if you are somebody who enjoys a cold drink in the tub or at the vanity, latest trends see a rise in bathrooms with mini refrigerators for storing medicine and beverages. Incorporate the refrigerator in your design so it doesn’t end up cramping the space.
You may also want a toilet that’s more advanced than the regular. There are seats that play soothing music when you open the lid, then stop playing when you close it. The lid itself can be automated (so you can avoid that annoying I-dropped-the-lid noise). There are even showers that, like the seat in your car, adjust to your preferences (water heat level, strength of spray, etc.).
Your bathroom, big or small, can become a high-tech and ultra efficient space in your home. It might just become your favorite place for relaxing.
