What's New in bathrooms

Bathroom ammenities have come a long way

Bathroom Innovations

In a booming economy, homeowners begin to consider remodeling all or part of their house. There are plenty of new innovations in home remodeling today to update an older home including the bathroom. So, let’s take a quick look at what’s new in bathrooms.

Planning for Efficiency

Bathrooms are traditionally very small as compared to other rooms in the house so to get the most out of such a small space, careful designing should be done. The best way to create a design that’s meets all your desires is to use computerized bathroom and kitchen design software specifically intended for that purpose. You’ll want to utilize all the available space as efficiently as possible while providing all the features you are looking for in a bathroom.

Plumbing Fixtures

Plumbing Fixtures have come a long way since 20 or 40 years ago. New toilets now offer options like lids that automatically open and close with built-in air dryers, deodorizers, and bidets. Shower units have an automatic water temperature control with memory, a radio for your showering pleasure, and custom shower heads for just the right feel. Bathroom faucets are going touchless along with soap dispensers so you never have to touch anything except your towel.

More Upgrades

The ideas you can incorporate in your bathroom are endless. Some popular ideas are replacing a bathtub with a walk-in shower and installing LED lighting where you need it most like for shaving, putting on makeup, or inside cabinets and drawers. Other upgrades include adding steam inside the shower, custom-made sink and vanities, a flat-screen tv, a hidden toilet tank, and don’t forget the ever-popular whirlpool bath for the ultimate bathing experience.

The Future is Here Today

Whether you want to simply upgrade a bathroom faucet or overhaul the entire bathroom, you’re going to find new and exciting products and materials to complete your project. The future looks even better as new technologies break into the home remodeling arena to bring us ever closer to living in the age of the Jetsons.
