Designer Bathrooms. Helping Improve your Home
One of the best things a homeowner can do to increase enjoyment of the home and improve the odds of selling the home at a good price is to upgrade the bathrooms. Particularly where older homes are concerned, a stellar bathroom remodel increases the home’s resale value by making it more appealing to potential buyers of all ages.
Fortunately, more people these days are in a better position to take on home improvement projects of this size, and a number of bathroom design features that were once purely the domain of palatial residences have become more affordable and more widely available.
If you feel ready to take that step toward significantly improving your home for now and for the future, it is wise to learn more about bathroom upgrades that have become popular in recent years and that will provide the best value both in terms of your own enjoyment and a potential home sale.
Natural, clean colours
Neutral and cool shades of blue, grey, white, silver and black give a sense of both cleanliness and serenity as compared to gaudy colours or gold or brass accents, which are best saved for other parts of the house. One exception to this rule is the powder room: unlike the trends in master bathroom remodelling, it has become ever more popular over the past year to add dark hardwood flooring, furniture-like cabinetry and other colours and accents more commonly associated with other parts of the house.
Master shower cubicles
To some extent, bathtubs in master bathrooms are going out of fashion, being relegated to children’s bathrooms and replaced in the master bathroom by multiple-head showers with frameless glass enclosures. When opting for multiple shower heads, installing two or more different kinds of shower heads adds value in that different home buyers will then have options which suit their individual preferences. Brands such as Hansgrohe make a variety of showers which should meet the needs of most anyone undertaking a bathroom remodelling project.
Let there be light & Warmth in the Bathroom
Lots of light in the bathroom is also very popular nowadays, contributing as it does to that light, airy and above all, clean feeling that everyone wants to experience upon walking into the bathroom. Consider adding skylights wherever space allows – even directly above the shower cubicle!
Features that make the bathroom warmer and more inviting in cool weather are also increasingly common. After all, who wants to step out of a deliciously warm shower taken under the natural light from a skylight and step onto a cold surface in an equally cold bathroom? Features such as heated floors and designer radiators, from brands such as Bisque and Reina, are much more affordable than in years past and a very worthwhile component of a larger bathroom remodelling project.
