With everyone spending more time at home, it’s not surprising that we’re all noticing the work that needs to get done in the bathroom.
May is National Remodeling Month and all month long we’re taking a look at how you can improve your bathroom. In this first post, we’ll talk about how you can add a luxury touch and bring that spa experience to your home bathroom.
These are some of the most popular upgrades homeowners are making to transform their bathrooms.
One of the best ways to make a major change in the bathroom is with a new shower, and there are plenty of options out there. Integrating features like curbless showers, body sprays, a shower bench, or a programmable thermostat can take your shower to the next level. We’re going to take a deep dive into custom showers in our next post.
A separate tub can give you space to relax and recharge after a long day. That can be a simple soaking tub or you can go full luxury with jets, color-coded lights, and integrated sound systems.
Radiant heat flooring and towel warmers
Add some heat to your bathroom! Tired of stepping on to a cold tile floor in the morning? In-floor radiant heating using either electric or hot water can add a new level of comfort to your bathroom. Radiant heating is also more efficient than forced-air heat.
A towel warming drawer or cabinet, or heated towel racks, can also take the chill off by keeping your towels nice and warm for when you get out of that long soak or shower.
Toilets can be much more than a utilitarian feature. A heated toilet seat can add a level of comfort on a cold winter day. Bidets, with their water jets and drying features, can help keep you clean. They’ve been popular in other countries for years, and are finally gaining more market share in the United States. Toilets with air purifiers and deodorizers add another measure of luxury.
If you share your significant other, a water closet can be a lifesaver for your relationship. It’s essentially a separate room within a bathroom, sometimes fully separated by a door, sometimes just by a wall or half-wall. It offers an increased measure of privacy while multiple people are using the bathroom.
If the placement of your house allows it, large windows that let in plenty of natural light can help save energy and give you the light you need. Another option is skylights or solar tubes that will let the light in through the ceiling. Integrated, adjustable LED fixtures around the mirrors and vanities will make sure you have plenty of light.
Like in the kitchen, there are a wealth of countertop options in the bathroom. A high-end granite or quartz countertop can ramp up your look.
