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.
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.
The quintessential colours of a modern bathroom are undeniably minimalist. Think white, grey, beige, cream, and black. Though this colour scheme is simple. It is made that way for a reason. These neutral colours bring to mind cleanliness, tidiness and organisation. There is simply no room for clutter when designing a chic modern bathroom. The lighter shades of this colour scheme like white, beige, and cream will also open up the room, making it feel larger. If you are renovating a small bathroom this is especially ideal.
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.
