Other than your bedroom, your bathroom should be your own private retreat.
If you plan on selling your home any time soon, it is one of the major rooms that prospective buyers expect to be completely modernized.
If your bathroom is still stuck in the 70's with outdated colors and fixtures, you probably are considering remodeling.
Here are this year's 5 top trends for new bathrooms:
1. Counter Tops That Pop
Nothing says opulence like natural countertops made of granite, quartz, or marble. There is something special for just about every budget. The popular combinations for vanities are darker wood with light counters. It makes the bathroom look modern and fresh. Many homeowners often use the same type of countertops in their bathrooms that they put in their kitchen for continuity. You can use countertop colors that complement the tiles and flooring in your bathroom.
2. Soaking Tubs
Bathrooms with tub/shower inserts made of fiberglass instantly date your bathroom. Many homeowners opt for luxurious free-standing soaking tubs. They come in different sizes, shapes, and natural materials. It is easy to add a shower feature to them. They make a lovely focal point for your bathroom and free up space that is taken by traditional tub inserts.
3. Over-Sized Showers
Forget the tiny shower stalls with the flimsy sliding doors. Many decorators recommend over-sized showers to their clients. They are wider than traditional stalls and can be done in breath-taking styles like mosaic tiles or marble. You can have a rainfall shower head installed as well as additional shower heads for total body massage.
4. Heated Floors
It can be quite a shock to step out of a hot shower onto a bone-chillingly cold floor. You can choose from electric or hydro-powered systems that create radiant heat underneath any type of floor treatment.
5. Artisan Sink Bowls
Most of us are used to the plain old bathroom sink sitting in the vanity. There are many beautiful designs with raised bowls that sit on top of the counter with unique hardware. Imagine having a beautiful hammered copper sink bowl on your new quartz countertop. The choices of material and styles are almost endless. If you prefer a traditional pedestal sink, there are many trendy designs out that will match your tiles and flooring.
Create you own oasis when you remodel your bathroom.
Not only will it be enjoyed by your family and admired by visitors, but it will also add value to your home.
