Bathroom trends in remodeling continue to reflect the hard-working American’s desire for a relaxing space, with improved energy efficiency. If you plan to remodel a bathroom this year, consider the following bathroom remodel trends for 2015. When you are ready to begin your bathroom remodel, contact Benjamin Franklin Plumbing® of Rosenberg for reliable plumbing services, and a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
A Walk-In Shower
The walk-in shower has surpassed the bathtub in desirability. The trend is in expansive showers lacking the threshold. From a safety perspective, a shower lacking a “step over” is safer, especially for older homeowners. Furthermore, roomier showers may be able to accommodate shower chairs for the elderly who are mobility impaired.
In addition, handrails and handles can create a safer environment for the mobility impaired to enjoy a shower. While tiled seating in the shower is growing in popularity for all ages, when used with a handheld sprayer showering is easier, more comfortable, and safer for those suffering from reduced mobility.
Showers are featuring large rain head faucets and handheld sprayers. A Benjamin Franklin plumber in Sugar Land can provide the faucet installation that you need for your bathroom remodel.
Fiberglass showers are out of vogue, with homeowners wanting large, rectangular tile for showers and flooring.
The Hand Shower
Hand held shower sprayers are an increasingly popular item and a sensible one. Hand held showers help to clean your body more thoroughly and make the hard to reach areas easy to rinse, unlike the average showerhead.
No one likes to wait for his or her turn when pressed for time. The double vanity enables the two of you to prepare at the same time. Double vanities are available in a wide range of shapes, styles, colors, and designs, with a selection sure to suit your style.
Low Flow Toilets
Water saving devices are increasingly popular with water conscious consumers. Today’s low flow toilets have benefitted from design upgrades, eliminating the problems of older low flow toilets. Many of these toilets not only look great, but they will also cut down on your water consumption dramatically, saving you money while preserving this precious natural resource. When remodeling a bathroom for the elderly, consider an elevated toilet, and adding a handrail to the wall adds another feature to assist them in getting off the toilet. Benjamin Franklin Plumbing® of Rosenberg can install the low flow toilet of your choice.
Heated floors are a popular trend for tile or stone floors, which can be uncomfortably cold during the winter. Under-the-floor heating provides toasty warmth underfoot on winters coldest days and nights.
One style will not fit all, but contractors are reporting a significant increase in consumers who are choosing a simple, clean, and more contemporary style. Even the fans of rustic are selecting cleaner lines and the minimalist style.
Flooring and walls are becoming a focal point in bathroom remodels with unique accents in tiling.
Other Popular Options
For those with the budget, towel warmers remain a favorite, along with built in speakers for relaxing music, a television, and an electric or gel fireplace.
Lever handled faucets, or hands free operation provides hand-washing convenience, especially to those with arthritic hands. Benjamin Franklin Plumbing® of Rosenberg can provide professional plumbing for all of your bathroom remodel needs.
