Homes have been given a new meaning with dining rooms becoming classrooms, guest bedrooms are now “Zoom rooms” or offices, and our bathrooms could probably be upgraded for you to enjoy. a relaxation area to take care of yourself.
Read on to find out about the top bathroom design trends I’ve seen in homes this year.
Classics updated: Tiles are synonymous with bathroom, and classics are pushing the refresh button with new colors, sizes and patterns. Gone are the days of boring white subway tiles; I see large tiles typically used for flooring on shower walls with no grout lines (easier to clean) in bold patterns and colors. Subway tiles have so many new options with elongated sizes and updated icing techniques / textures, and I’ve seen them applied vertically instead of horizontally for a completely modern look.
Shower updates: Why not transform your master bathroom into a home spa? Consider installing a rain shower system with multiple faucets with different temperatures. A plumber can install it without breaking the bank to completely refresh your bathroom. Another luxurious update is a steam shower system, which is truly indulgent and relaxing.
Soaking tubs (NOT Jacuzzi tubs): Soaking tubs (separate from the shower) are on the rise, and there are some great new styles of tubs on the market. It is essential to have at least one bathtub in the house for resale value.
Also important: do not install a jacuzzi bath! I have had real estate appraisers who have lowered the value of the house because of this. They are considered dated and unwanted. Ouch, I have one at home!
Wallpaper: I have always loved the wallpaper although most consider it a throwback to the 80s. The new styles are AMAZING especially the modern graphic designs which can easily be removed. Wallpaper is a great way to personalize your space to suit your style. There are literally over 100,000 options to choose from! If you are concerned about reselling, the new brands are easily removed without damaging the walls.
Heating floor: What better way to pamper yourself (and your feet) than having a heated floor with a timer that automatically heats up at specific times.
