We are already several months into the 2015 and in the paragraphs below we’re going to take a closer look at some of the trending bathroom designs you may consider for your project.
There are quite a few reasons to why bathtubs are not trendy anymore, including:
- A lot of people attribute the loss of popularity when it comes to bathtubs because they cost quite a bit of money. This means that if you want to remodel or build a new bathroom with a bathtub, it’s going to cost you a lot of money. On top of that, if the bathtub is only going to be rarely used, then that money is considered a bad investment.
- According to what others are saying, it seems that the hectic life many of us are living make the use of a bathroom too time consuming and therefore not absolutely necessary.
- Lastly, some people think that showers are a lot greener than tubs and that’s because you don’t need to waste as much water when taking a shower compared to bathing.
Regardless of the reasons though, a lot of architects are reporting that more and more people prefer bathrooms with no bathtubs compared to the previous years.
Expansive Walk-In Showers
You’ll probably laugh if we were to tell you that showering is a hot trend these days and it’s something that (hopefully) everyone mutually agrees with. Just like most other people, you either shower a few times a week or everyday and you assume that this is very normal. Correct?
Well, while that may be true, doesn’t it make you think?
So if you’re just showering, then this means that you aren’t taking baths and if you don’t take baths, then you may find no use for a bathtub, right?
And if you don’t need one, then this is certainly going to help you free up a lot of space in your bathroom which can be used for something else, such as a very large shower. Well, at least that’s what a lot of people are thinking in 2015.
In our modern times, it seems that a lot of people are focused on achieving a larger open feeling in their bathroom, especially when it comes to the shower area. The answer that came quickly and helps millions of people feel a lot more satisfied with the experience of taking a shower are no threshold, curbless or door-less showers.
If the climate in your area is harsh for the majority of the year, then walking on cold tile is probably not a good idea. In this case, you could consider installing an underfloor heating system to stay warm.
Vanities With Sinks
This year, his and hers double sink vanities seem to be very popular in the master bedroom. If the bathroom is to be shared by siblings, it seems that 2-sink bathrooms are also a great choice.
Interesting Metallic Fixtures
What’s great about bathroom fixtures is that they are available in a wider range of colors and finishes, such as oil rubbed bronze, brushed nickel and chrome. There are of course many other varieties you can consider, including bronze like metals, brassy metals and warm colored coppery.
If you want to be able to direct the flow of water when taking a shower, hand showers are certainly a great choice.
Cost saving and energy efficient solutions like dual flow toilers or low flow toilets are currently sought after by a lot of people.
It seems that not everyone wants to get rid of their bathtubs this year. There are still a lot of people who love them, but they do indeed opt for the smaller choices such as serene soaking tubs and spa-jet tubs.
The faucets most people use at home seem to have become a lot more efficient and user friendly. While in the hospitality industry sensor activated faucets were used for a very long time, it seems that these days many people are buying them for home use as well.
LED lighting is very popular in many areas of the house, including the cabinets, bathroom, kitchen and so on.
