Bath Remodeling


Bath Remodeling

One of the current trends in bath remodeling is the spa bathroom, the “retreat” – complete with heated floor and towel bars, saunas, and steam showers.  Today, Americans are focusing on making their homes comfortable cocoons where they can escape from the hectic pressures of day to day life in tough economic times.  Homeowners are spending more time at home and thus, are spending money to make their homes more comfortable and relaxing.  One avenue for such comfort is the conversion of the bathroom into an in-house retreat.  In your quest to turn your bathroom into a personal comfort zone, here are some other popular bath remodeling trends. 

Bathroom Size

Many homeowners are expanding their bathroom footprints to accommodate features such as whirlpool tubs, steam rooms, separate showers, and other bath furniture.  Either exterior or interior are moved to allow for more functionality. 

Multi-functional Bath Fixtures

One major bath remodel trend involves homeowners selecting fixtures with more than one function allowing for more comfort, personal style and flair.  Many homeowners are opting for a separate shower and bath.  By separating these two fixtures, the number of choices available is greatly expanded.  For example, if the bath is separate from the shower, options include a free-standing bath such as a claw-foot tub or a relaxing whirlpool tub.  According to the American Standard Bathroom Habits Survey, a majority of Americans choose a whirlpool as the number one item they want in their bath.

Another popular trend in bath fixtures is an above counter sink which can function simultaneously as a sculpture piece as well as a sink.  Just a few such sink options are fused-glass basins in jewel tones, concrete basins, and copper basins.  There are many other artistic expressions available in above-counter sinks.

Bath Furniture

The modern bathroom today contains more than just the bath, shower and sink.  With the increase in bathroom size, homeowners are choosing alternative forms of bath furnishings such as armories for extra storage as well as television sets and stereo equipment.  Others are taking bath remodeling to a new level with the introduction of chaise lounges for reading and relaxing in their bathrooms.  Vintage pieces in the form of arm chairs and vanities are also popular bath furniture pieces.  The bath furniture trend continues with manufacturers creating bath fixtures that look and feel like traditional furniture you would find in the rest of the home. 

Infusion of different materials in the bath

Designers and homeowners are experimenting with different materials in bath remodeling.  Recycled glass, wood, rocks as well as metal can be found in today’s bath.  Glass tiles are a popular trend which allows one to create artistic expression through mosaic designs.  Many homeowners are combining glass tiles with porcelain tiles to allow for more affordability without sacrificing style.  Another material trend emerging is the combination of stainless steel and natural stone features to create a contemporary look.  Metal accents can make a room feel a bit cold or sterile so the combination of a natural stone material can soften the feel through a contrasting texture and color.

Incorporating a Splash of Color

Bath remodeling is turning toward the strategic use of color.  Although white continues to be the most popular color in the bath, homeowners and bath designers are integrating other colors that still allow to bath to remain timeless rather than dated.  You don’t need a lot of color accents to create bath panache.  Also, when looking to introduce color in your bath remodeling, choose a color that both suits your style as well as your environment.  Natural colors remain the most versatile but bolder colors such as reds, bright blues, and deep greens are becoming popular.  Colors can be seen in everything from paint to decorative tiles to bath fixtures. 

For homeowners who don’t feel confident in their bath remodeling abilities, hiring a professional bath designer can really prove fruitful.  A professional bath designer can also assist you in budgeting for your bath remodeling project as can a quality bath remodeling contractor.  To find bathroom remodeling contractors in your area, search our database at Contractorcommunity.com.
