2019’s Biggest Bathroom Trends

Taking on a bathroom renovation is a major undertaking. It’s worth evaluating prevailing trends to determine if they fit your lifestyle and tastes. Of high importance should be on building a bathroom that’s adding value to your home. While there are a ton of different trends to consider, here are the biggest advances our team projects in the realm of bathroom designs this year.

Reconsidering the Tub

Surprisingly enough, an ever increasing number of homeowners are ditching their jetted bathtubs and replacing them with oversized shower systems. There are many options for adding body jets into your shower to give you the same relaxing feeling while also opening up space in your bathroom.  It’s worth noting that this trend is resonating more with Baby Boomers than with parents with young children.  However, in a majority of cases, having a standing shower allows for easier accessibility. An argument can be made that disabled or elderly users require a tub to bathe. Unfortunately, that’s not the full story.  Many walk-in tubs force the user to stay inside until the water is filling the tub, rendering you chilled while the tub fills and unable to adjust water heat until it’s full. They also require you to stay inside until it’s fully drained. A standing shower allows room for a chair to be inside, giving a place of rest for the handicapped and those advanced in age without having to wait for it to drain to get out.shower

Installing a clear frameless sliding shower door will also help alleviate the burden of a small feeling bathroom by making it look more spacious.  Another reason barn style doors have been a hit in recent bathroom remodels is because they add a personal touch of flair to the décor.  Having a spacious shower with built-in options certainly injects a modern vibe into a bathroom renovation.

Keep Towels Warm

Heated towel racks are quickly climbing the trending ladder. Pair the warm floor with a heated towel rack to keep you nice and cozy when it’s time to leave the heat of the shower. Keeping a towel warm means they’re kept dry, giving mildew no chance to show up. With tons of style and design options, you are truly limitless in building your bathroom.

Give Your Bathroom A Little Light

Late night trips to the bathroom sometimes result in a stubbed toe or a busted knee from trying to maneuver around in the darkness. Avoid the unnecessary pain by adding a toe kick light to the bottom of your vanity. Not only does it help guide you in the dark, but it provides comfortable lighting without having to turn on the too-bright overhead light. Toe kick lights go along well with a back-lit mirror providing softer lighting.bathroom vanity

Heated Comfort

While heated bathroom flooring has been available for many years, it’s starting to become standard in bathroom renovations rather than being perceived as an unnecessary expenditure. Nobody likes being hit with that cold burst of air after getting out of the shower. Adding a heated floor to your bathroom is a simple way to lessen the “brrr blow” and assists in relaxation. Heated floors are also durable and can last several decades. With warm floors, toes stay warm giving a comforting feeling. Modern in-floor heating configurations ensure temperatures stay in a range that’s safe for feet to come in contact with. Heated floors can also up your resell value.
