According to the National Kitchen and Bath Association, bathroom fixtures take up 20% of the renovation budget on average so when choosing fixtures and finishes consider who is using the space and how heavily it will be used. Is it a kid’s bathroom? Then plastic laminate flooring and countertops are a good option because they’re both durable and inexpensive (and high-end material is of less importance to children). You’ll thank yourself later for using finishes that are low maintenance and easy to keep clean. In that regard, choose quartz instead of marble and make sure glass shower doors are treated with anti-spotting agents. In terms of fixtures, you’ll want high-quality construction like all-brass parts and a PVD finish that will resist scratches. Basic chrome is cheaper than materials like nickel or bronze. Low budget, high impact swaps include replacing specific features; here’s our guide on how to pick out the best bathroom vanity. When making any changes consider where you can creatively hide storage in the room and for energy efficiency be sure to look for low-flow toilet models.
The hottest bathroom remodeling idea is an indoor/outdoor bathroom. Don’t worry about privacy, the latest bathroom tech includes electric privacy glass — glass that instantly switches from clear to frosted at a flick of a switch. Window manufacturers have also designed windows and skylights with built in shades between the glass panels that can open and close electronically. Ways to add the indoor/outdoor look to your bathroom include: An outdoor shower with a glass door for access from the bathroom, A large glass wall or window in front of a tub or shower with a beautiful garden outside, Skylights that bring the view of the sky into the bathroom, A wall of plants in the bathroom that bring the outdoors in, A zen shower with low maintenance succulent garden and river rock bedding surroundings.
