The bathroom may be smaller in size compared to other rooms in the house, but that does not mean it can't be as stylish. After all, it's one of the most used places in the house!
For those who want to turn their bathrooms into a more stylish, comfortable, and relaxing space, it may be time to start thinking about remodeling. There are many designs that can be done in this space, but wall-mounted toilets, open showers, lighting, and wet rooms are 4 current remodeling trends that you may want to consider.
1. Wall-Mounted Toilets
For homeowners looking to change their bathroom and make it sleeker and modern-looking, it's time to get a wall-mounted toilet. This toilet is just as it seems - it's mounted to your wall! With this type of toilet, the plumbing will have to be hidden. Some homeowners have opted to have a closet on the other side of the wall to help with this.
While a wall-mounted toilet might be more pricey than a floor-mounted toilet, it comes with more benefits other than just a stylish look. Cleaning and mopping the floor is more manageable, plus it saves space, making it perfect for smaller bathrooms and for those going for a minimal look.
2. Open Showers
If you have been looking through new trends for bathrooms, you have probably seen the type of shower that doesn't have a door to block it off from the rest of the bathroom. Open showers have been gaining popularity in the past years for many reasons. Not only are they visually appealing, but they also open up the room. They are also easier to maintain compared to traditional showers.
Here are some things to consider when installing an open shower:
- Space - This type of design may not be suitable for smaller bathrooms because it requires more floor space than the usual shower stalls.
- Cost - Be prepared to have a bigger budget because open showers are not the usual standard size, so most of them are customized.
- Location - Corners are the perfect location to create an open shower.
- Placement of showerheads and drains - Placement of the showerheads is critical. If not placed at the right angle, you might end up with water all over the bathroom. Without proper drainage, the same thing will happen.
A rainfall showerhead and multiple drains will minimize the risk of water getting all over your bathroom floor.
3. Perfect Lighting
The truth is, not many homeowners prioritize lighting when designing their bathroom, even though this is where most people get ready for the day! You can achieve perfect natural lighting by installing more windows or even skylights.
You can also choose bulbs that offer appropriate brightness. Make sure to light all areas in the bathroom including the shower, sinks, and vanity area. You can even create a nice ambiance for a calming bath by adding a dimmer!
4. A Wet Room
A wet room is basically an open bathroom that has been "tanked" or waterproofed. Unlike other traditional bathrooms, the shower area is also on the same level as the floor, which is great for those who have mobility issues. Homeowners may choose to have only a portion of the bathroom as a wet room or have the whole room transformed into one.
A wet room can be created in any bathroom regardless of the size. For homes with larger spaces, you can customize it by adding a bathtub right in the center and adding a shower or two. Adding a glass partition all the way to the ceiling and create a steam room right in your own home!
