Over the last 10-15 years, bathroom remodeling has become an increasingly popular trend. Homeowners and home buyers alike seek upgraded bathroom spaces. The number, size and style of bathrooms have gained importance to individuals, couples and families. Bathrooms, once merely functional, are now viewed as an oasis in the chaos of daily life. The value of a luxurious bathroom is high on the list of desired home comforts.
When remodeling or installing upgrades in a home, the bathroom is usually one of the first rooms to be targeted for changes. When planning a bathroom remodel, it is important to consider who will be using the space. For example, is this the master bath, or a guest bathroom? Will it be used often by children, elderly people, or someone with a physical disability? This will factor into your decisions the layout and type of furnishings you will want and need to include in your remodel. You will also need to consider available space, budget, and the extent of your remodeling project.
In reviewing the various trends in bathroom design, many new innovations have surfaced. Recently, bathroom furnishings have been designed based on the idea that bathrooms are arranged in a variety of layouts and sizes. Manufacturers have created a vast selection of products to accommodate consumer demands. One of the most recent new space saving designs incorporates beautifully crafted wall mounted bathroom furnishings. The benefits of wall mounted furnishings include not only a clean, modern appearance, but the creation of much needed additional space. Wall mounted sinks and eye-level wall mounted cabinets contribute to a sense of openness and a desirable absence of clutter. Built in shelving and wall mounted accessories also help to save space and make the bathroom feel and appear larger and more luxurious.
Home improvement stores and bathroom furnishing manufacturers are well stocked with every item imaginable to upgrade your bathroom. Suppliers understand the varied needs and desires of consumers wishing to remodel their bathrooms. Stores and websites carry a vast collection of materials, fixtures, furnishings, and accessories enabling consumers to customize their remodeling projects according to individual needs, space, style, and budget. Furnishings are available in a wide array of materials, colors, and finishes both to suit the homeowner’s taste and to complement the furnishings in the rest of the house.
Regardless of personal style, the goal of a bathroom remodel is to achieve a clean and purposefully designed look to the room. Lighter colors are perfect for smaller bathrooms, whereas deeper colors can lend a rich and luxurious feel to larger bathrooms. Space saving furnishings and high end finishes can give any bathroom a more comfortable, modern feel. The choices of flooring, fixtures, furnishings, and accessories should blend harmoniously to the overall design.
