01 Mar The Latest Trends in Bathroom Remodeling
With the new year in full swing and tax refunds just around the corner, now is the time that many Long Island homeowners may decide to renovate one or more rooms in their homes. One of the most popular rooms to remodel in a home is the bathroom. Bathroom décor can quickly become old and outdated and because it is one of the most frequently used rooms in the house (especially if you only have one) fixtures may leak, tile floors may crack and walls can become worn and nicked from steam and water damage. If you are considering a bathroom renovation project this spring, following are some of the latest trends and ideas for bathroom remodeling in 2018.
An article on HGTV.com explains, “When it comes to the bathroom, there’s a lot going on in a relatively small space. You need to focus on style and function.” A bathroom is a functional space that can be extended to be stylish and luxurious. It can even become an escape or a haven from the rest of the house or a stressful day. Many Long Island homeowners are embracing this statement and creating bathrooms that are practical, functional and luxurious.
There are many different features to consider when you are remodeling a bathroom. Following are some traditional and contemporary ideas.
If you have the room, dual sinks are a great option in a master bathroom or a children’s bathroom. With ample space, they allow multiple people to get ready at the same time!
Windows and Sky Lights
Windows and strategically placed skylights are great features to let in as much natural light as possible in a small space.
There are many options in showers today. They can include body sprays, rain shower heads, hand showers, multiple shower heads, shower seats, and infinity drains. A step-in shower without a curb (known as a Roman style shower) is safe for people of all ages.
Tubs are optional – depending on the size of the bathroom. However, if you have the space and like to unwind in a warm tub, you can add a tub that features heated air jets that emit warmth and bubbles.
Different Sink Styles
There are many types of sinks to choose from. One option may be an under mounted sink, which offers a sleek look and makes countertop cleanup a cinch.
Stepping onto a warm tile floor is a bonus on a cold winter day. Radiant heat can be placed below floor tiles for a reasonable price. Radiant heat mats that don’t use a lot of energy are also an option for specific areas in the bathroom.
Ample Storage Space
A linen closet that is built right inside a bathroom is a great convenience and allows the user to access towels and toiletries right in the bathroom.
There are so many options in bathroom tile. Marble, porcelain and ceramic tiles are available in so many different styles and color schemes.
Bright colors are very popular today to brighten up a small space but neutral tones are also still widely used in a bathroom setting to complement natural stone countertops or floors.
