The Latest Bath Trends For Your HomeJ&J Construction of Illinois, Inc.
Thinking about updating a master bathroom, guest bath, or powder room? If you’re not working in the industry, you may not be aware of all the latest trends. The latest and greatest in bathroom design isn’t all about colors and tiles – there are also some less-obvious touches that up the luxury level.
A good soak in a steaming hot tub will always have appeal. Now, however, the focus on personal relaxation has moved over to the shower! Showers today can deliver experiences that you could once only find in resort destinations.
By pulling out oversized and seldom-used jetted tubs, homeowners can find room for showers with built-in features such as body sprays, benches, wall insets, rainfall showerheads, and more.
Don’t worry about losing your bubble baths permanently! It’s always an option to add a smaller, freestanding tub for those times you just want to read a book and submerge in some hot, fragrant suds.
These aren’t the clunky fixtures you’ve seen before. Today’s bidets and bidet toilet seats are unobtrusive, use a small footprint in bathrooms, and are a popular upgrade for homeowners.
They’ve also added technology and an array of thoughtful features. Heated water, automatic cleaning, and even nightlights are just the beginning. They work well in half baths or smaller bathrooms, too. The tankless models, in particular, can save a lot of space!
Bathroom remodels usually include a flooring upgrade. Today, porcelain tile choices can look just like wood, native stone, or marble – but are so easy to take care of.
Even better? How about heated floors for those colder months? (In Chicagoland, we have plenty of those!) Imagine what it would be like to walk around barefoot on warm floors in your bathroom – stepping out of the bath onto something that’s downright cozy…nice, right? Radiant heat can be installed right under your new floors, and you’ll never freeze your toes after a shower, again!
The overall look of bathroom trends is cleaner and brighter – but there’s plenty of room for beautiful details.
Selecting a beautiful sink that looks like fine ceramics, using accent tiles in special textures, or adding new light fixtures are all ways to add a bespoke look to your remodel.
Part of the fun of upgrading a bathroom is finding special accents that reflect your personal style. Tile borders are a way to add color, interesting textures, and even subtly reshape the look of a tiled space with their pattern.
Overhead, new lighting fixtures can help brighten your day with better placement and good looks. If you’ve found yourself squinting at the mirror every time you put on your makeup or style your hair, your contractor can help!
