Let’s face it: bathroom time is important. It’s where we start our day and usually end it, too. The bathroom is place to bring all your personal decorative ideas. From favorite tile colors to functionality like speakers in the shower, there are endless ways to make the bathroom one of the most fun and interesting rooms in your home. Dreaming of a renovated bathroom? Whether your existing bathroom is smaller than a closet or as big as a bedroom, the design experts at Paulis, Inc. can help you create the bathroom space you desire.
Let’s take a look at 5 bathroom trends that are sticking around and growing in popularity:
Vertical storage. There’s no need to stop storage at the vanity level. Take advantage of the vertical space in your bath and have cabinets built into the wall. Perfect for storage items like towels and bath products. Bonus: keep medicine out of reach of small children by storing it on the top shelf.
Nouveau tile. Bathroom tile has come a long way in the last 20 years. You’re no longer stuck with one choice: plain white subway tile. Glass tile, Mediterranean-inspired color tile, geometric designs – it’s all an option. Bonus: tile is super easy to clean and maintain. Make sure you speak with your tile representative for details about manufacturer’s guidelines for maintenance.
No threshold showers. A frameless, tempered glass shower (with no barriers to entry, just walk in) are a hot new trend. This modern design makes small spaces seem larger and more open. Bonus: for homeowners interested in aging in place, this is a perfect option.
Floating vanities. Vanities can be customized for any height. Floating vanities (attached to the wall, not the floor) are modern and can look more like a piece of art than a functional piece of the bathroom. Bonus: quicker and easier bathroom floor cleaning.
Media options. Music in the shower? A flat screen above the tub? Bringing electronics and media into the bathroom is becoming more commonplace. Wireless speakers, Bluetooth devices and docking stations are practical, time saving and make bathroom time more fun. Bonus: perfect for the multitaskers who like to binge watch Netflix while bathing.
Radiant floors. There’s nothing like stepping out of the tub or shower on a freezing winter morning onto a warm floor. Radiant floor heating warms you from the toes up and keeps the whole room cozy. Bonus: energy efficient especially when used with natural stone, which holds heat longer.
