A bathroom should be a place of extreme relaxation, and that’s exactly what a recent trend analysis from the National Association of Home Builders has found.
Clean, uncluttered lines, energy-and water-efficient features, the open and accessible aesthetics of universal design, materials and colors drawn from nature, and a spa-like feel of comfort and relaxation: That’s today’s bathroom. – NAHB
Anything relating to an organic, more calming feeling is the most valuable because it’s neutral, but luxurious like a high-end spa.
Granite and marble are still very popular, but caeserstone, a mix of quartz and resin, is also becoming a popular choice for countertops because of its ability to keep clean and it has an earthy look. As always, a double sink with sleek hardware keeps with the minimalist trend.
When it comes to showers luxury is everything. Multiple shower heads, clean lines, LED lights and built in shelving are among the most popular details in remodeled bathrooms. The idea is to create space.
“Frameless glass is the choice for shower doors, keeping sight lines open and enhancing the clear, spacious aesthetics,” NAHB says.
For an added sense of comfort some renovations have included sound systems, which add even more of a spa-like experience. Shower heads can be equipped with bluetooth and recessed speakers are a possibility. Surround sound isn’t just for a home theater anymore.
Heated floors are also a new must-have for bathroom renovations. Stepping onto a warm floor in the morning means luxury from head to toe.
