One of a home’s biggest selling points today is energy savings. Water shortages and rising utility bills make this a priority for home buyers. Energy efficiency is also big from the environmental standpoint. When planning your bathroom remodel, these items maximize energy efficiency : Tankless water heaters, Low flow toilets and faucets, LED lighting instead of traditional incandescent, Radiant floor heating, Insulated windows.
Add a mirror across a whole wall to double the look and feel of your bathroom. This is a great technique to make small or narrow bathrooms feel larger. Locate the mirror either above the vanity or along one side wall. Mirror walls are also great for reflecting light, so you get more light from your light fixtures and windows.
To make a bathroom appear larger, skip wall-to-wall cabinets and open up the space. A good way to do this is by building a bathroom counter or vanity that appears to float. Another way to get the look is by skipping the traditional cabinet vanity base and using a sofa table with open shelving below. Make sure the table is a minimum of 16” deep to fit your sink(s).
A new trend in bathroom design and remodeling is to recycle old or vintage pieces of furniture into a clever and unique bathroom vanity or storage piece. Bathroom design has only been in development for a century, which may seem like a long time, but in terms of design and decoration, is fairly new. Early bathrooms were made to be a sterile and easy-to-clean necessity but have now developed into lavish home spas and sanctuaries.
