Bathroom Trends

There are lots of new trends out there for bathrooms in today’s Charlotte homes.  The most popular of the trends are granite vanity tops and travertine tiles.  A few other trends are heated floors and seamless glass doors.  With a good plan in mind, you can remodel a bathroom and include these trends without breaking the bank.  There lots of things to consider when deciding which trends you want to include in your bathroom remodel.

Stepping out of your newly remodel shower onto a heated floor is a nice feeling on a cold winter morning.  This is easily done with the proper kit.  There are a few kits on the market today so choose the one that best fits your needs and wallet.  To install the electric floor warmer, pull the old flooring up and following the instructions on your kit or have your contractor install it for you.

Another upgrade for your bathroom is seamless shower and tub doors.  Unlike the older versions of shower and tub doors, the new and improved not only look better but are easier to keep clean.  No more of the white film build up to scrub off weekly.  There are many models and styles to choose from.  The most popular is the seamless.  They give the illusion of not having any doors at all.  They come in many different finishes as well as the different styles.

Tile has come a long way from the older ceramic tiles with color choice only to personalize your bathroom.  Today you have ceramic, porcelain, travertine, marble, metal, glass, and a few others to choose from.  Tiles come in different shapes, sizes, colors, and textures as well.  When choosing your tile, keep in mind how much time you want to spend keeping your tile looking clean and new.  Some tiles are easier than others so do your research.

Finally, the most popular trend in bathroom remodeling is adding granite tops to your vanity.  With the advanced sealers available today, granite is the easiest, most economical stone to use in your bathroom remodeling.  There is a wide variety of stones to choose from.  The most popular that I see installed in today’s bathrooms is New Venetian Gold.  The best way to choose your granite is to go to your local granite distributors and look at their remnants.  Remnants are generally “leftovers” from larger slabs.  Using remnants can save you a good amount on your budget.  Make sure if using a remnant there is enough for your backsplash on your vanity.
Installing a granite vanity in your bathroom can change the look of your bathroom vanity quickly and easily. Installation for a granite double vanity or smaller granite vanities barely take any time at all to complete, so the install is easy to fit into your schedule.

These are just a few of the newest trends in bathroom remodeling.  As with all home remodeling projects, seek advice from a professional and work with a good budget in mind.  Remember, the bathroom remodeled right will add hundreds to your homes’ value.
