Selecting the proper lighting in your bathroom is important because a light, bright room will feel bigger. Good lighting can transform the space and make all other design elements pop. Unless you’re particularly savvy with electrical work, leave electrical projects to professionals unless you’re just swapping out a fixture. In terms of efficiency, install LED lights. They use at least 75% less energy and last 25 times longer than incandescent lighting (and won’t heat up the room).
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.
The latest bathroom trend involves the use of a focal wall. Homeowners often make a big investment in beautiful fixtures and finishes; a bold focal shower wall draws the eye to all the beautiful details in a shower space. To create a bold wall, try grain-matching stone, selecting an intricately detailed tile pattern or using backlit, printed glass as the backdrop to your shower.
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.
