Hot Trends for Bathroom Remodeling in 2011
The bathroom of the 21st century is a place to relax, rejuvenate and enjoy, not just a place to wash up. More and more people are commissioning bathroom remodeling projects that not only improve the overall look of the space but improve its function as well.
Here are some of the hottest bathroom remodeling trends for 2011…Luxurious Soaking Tubs
Just a few years ago jet tubs were all the rage, but nowadays more bathroom remodeling clients are requesting their contractors install a larger soaking tub instead. A soaking tub offers a more tranquil, restful bathing experience than a noisy jetted tub does and they do tend to be far nicer to look at as well.
Walk in Shower
There is always a need for a good shower in the bathroom, as who really has time for a bath everyday? The ceramic tile walk in shower is hot right now, especially when it is paired with almost invisible shower glass doors. It is not to hard to see why such a shower is so sought after. The glass doors give an extra sense of space to the bathroom and the elegance of the ceramic tile is hard to beat.
As a bathroom flooring choice ceramic tile is durable and elegant. The only real downside is that it can be as cold as ice to walk on barefoot. Radiant underfloor heating solves that problem easily though. The fact that radiant underfloor heating has been shown to be more energy efficient than pretty much any other form of bathroom heating is a plus for many people as well.
A stark all white bathroom is fast becoming pretty much a thing of the past. People increasingly realize that bold colors in the bathroom can add a shot of personality and style to the room like nothing else. Golds, blues and greens have become commonly requested wall colors for bathrooms nationwide, but you should follow your own heart and choose the colors that appeal to you to best put your own stamp on the room.
