The trend to watch: a clean break from built-in tubs with showers.
Fewer improvements add more value to your home than a complete bathroom renovation.
Many of today’s most popular bathroom designs feature practical yet minimalist details, from contemporary vanities with open shelving, to modern, recessed lighting to cool, neutral color palettes. And it seems everyone wants a great shower.
Large oversized whirlpool tubs are being replaced with elegant walk-in showers. Freestanding, soaking bathtubs are gaining popularity as objects of art—the focal point of the room. In some homes, bathtubs are being added to the shower, instead of the other way around.
A Better Bathing Experience Is in the Details
It is a luxury to have a master bathroom with a separate shower and bathtub or a large wet room that includes a bathtub. It adds value to your home, improves your own experience and demonstrates an attention to detail. Here are three ways to make the most of your bathroom renovation:
- Walk-In Shower. If you have the space, a large walk-in shower is one of the most efficient ways to create a total spa experience right in your home. Think of your shower as a place to relax and unwind. Many walk-in showers feature body sprays, rain shower heads and seating. Frameless shower doors visually open the shower to the bathroom, and they also look fantastic.
- Freestanding Soaking Tub. When your bathtub is not attached to a wall, it opens up more than the space in the room. With so many shapes and sizes from which to choose, a freestanding tub creates nearly endless design possibilities. The tub provides a great accent to the tile, adds drama and interest to the room, and offers the therapeutic benefits of a long, deep relaxing soak.
- Bathroom Finishes. Interestingly, both contemporary and traditional cabinetry, lighting and ceramic tile are finding their place in today’s bathrooms. The choices are limitless and enable you to create your own special place.
A bathroom remodel creates a space of enjoyment for you and makes a significant difference in the overall value of your home.
