Top 5 Bathroom Remodeling Trends
Every year, trends in bathroom remodeling come and go. But unlike painting or furniture arrangement, it is critical that any serious bathroom remodeling job be functional in the long term, as it is not easy to “change your mind”.
This has become even more important in light of the California drought, which has hit the San Francisco Bay Area hard. With this in mind, here are the top 5 bathroom remodeling trends for 2015:
1) No Bathtubs
For years, bathtubs were included in shower combos in order to give people an option. But very few people take baths anymore, and bathtubs waste significantly more water than an average 15-minute shower.
This doesn’t even take into account the extra time of cleaning a bathtub that accumulates oil and water residue despite never being used. Getting rid of your bathtub is an elegant solution for any bathroom remodeling job. It also gives you room to build a large walk-in shower or to expand upon counter space.
2) Hand Showers
Hand showers are a good way to get the most out of your shower stall. These detachable shower heads allow you to adjust the height and angle of the water, as well as to easily adjust nozzle type and water pressure. Initially, hand showers were considered clunky and unconventional, but they are quickly becoming mainstream.
3) Water-Saving Toilets
Flushing a regular toilet can use up a lot of water, especially as time goes on. Thankfully, there are a lot of good options on the market when it comes to water-saving toilets. Low-flow and dual-flow toilets are currently in high-demand, and water-saving toilets will function better in the long run if properly maintained. Water-saving toilets are a must-have when it comes to practical bathroom remodeling trends.
This one may seem over the top, but touchless faucets are becoming a popular fixture in home bathroom remodeling. They save water, are more hygienic, and can be configured in almost any style possible. Touchless faucets are especially nice because they are easy to maintain, and there is no chance of water leakage on a handle (where rubber washers often wear out).
5) 3D Floors
This blog would be remiss without at least one cool cosmetic trend in bathroom remodeling. And that trend is 3D floors painted with optical illusions. Artists have figured out how to craft murals that mimic three-dimensional landscapes of almost any kind. Some homeowners have even turned their bathroom into a night sky with constellations that show up in the dark. It is all just a matter of where you want to take it.
