Your bathroom is one of the most important rooms in your house. It is the place where you can relax and unwind after a long day of work. But a good bathroom can also add value to your home if you ever want to move. If you are ready for a change, these are the new trends that can make your own home spa look better than ever.
Bigger and Brighter
There is a huge focus on making your bathroom look bigger. Even with small bathrooms you can create the illusion of space. You can do this more easily by providing lots of light. Think of placing large windows and the right lighting in the right places. For example, you can add extra light effects under your bathtub, which immediately gives the bathroom a modern look. You can also use large mirrors which automatically makes the room looks larger.
Nowadays there is a lot of attention on making us environmentally friendly with our house and that includes the bathroom. There are several easy ways to make your bathroom sustainable. You can install a toilet with a low water flow rate and purchase a special durable shower head, where you use 5 instead of 9 liters of water per minute. You can also use a grey water system where your shower water is reused for the toilet.
Copper and brass
When you think of copper faucets you might think back to the old bathroom of your grandfather and grandmother but the trend is back. Copper and brass give your bathroom a much warmer feeling than cold silver and chrome materials. An additional advantage of copper, brass or bronze is that it is much easier to maintain and that you do not easily see fingerprints or stains on it.
Focus on accessibility
Many people renovate their bathroom with not just the aim of making it more comfortable, but also with an intend to making it desirable for the sales market. Bathrooms in which safety and accessibility measures have been taken seriously are very popular with potential buyers. Your bathroom is a long-term investment and not something you want to spend a lot of money on afterwards when adjustments are needed. With this type of adjustment you can think of a walk-in shower, the installation of a higher toilet and a non-slip floor.
Other practical matters are a focus on maintenance. Make sure the floor is free with a hanging surface wall-mounted toilet and accessories. This not only gives a more spacious feeling, but is also very handy with cleaning.
Invest in floor heating
Have you ever just showered and stepped out of the shower on a frozen floor? An ice cold damper. This is where floor heating comes in. It may cost a few bucks but it is an investment that you will really enjoy. Especially in these cold winter months. It gives you a more luxurious bathroom experience and for the market value of your house it is a positive addition to your bathroom.
