I hope everyone had a beautiful Thanksgiving this past week! Let’s the Holiday shopping begin!
Here are a few thoughts centered around modern era bathroom remodeling.
Remodeling a bathroom can significantly enhance a home’s selling status by modernizing its appeal, increasing functionality and showcasing a clean, updated space that potential buyers find attractive and valuable.
I can state with confidence that a new bathroom will enhance the asking price by almost 6%. Other data suggests you can get a $4 return on every $1 you spend on a fully remodeled bathroom.
If you’re looking to remodel your bathroom, whether to maximize sale value or to simply add a little luxe to your life, there are five trends that you just can’t ignore.
Ledge gives you an edge:
A shelf that goes right across the walls of your shower, a ledge is built with the same tiles as the rest of the shower for seamless integration. It’s spectacular visually and puts more soaps and shampoos within easy reach.
Update your tile file:
Classic bathrooms dominated by white tiles, often with black trim, now have a challenger. Designers recommend bold colors, often with graphics, used as a floor-to-ceiling statement wall. It’s a favorite feature when complemented by tiles of natural stone: terrazzo, marble and travertine.
Soaking up the relaxation:
For many designers, the floor plan of a bathroom is everything. You can turn your bathroom into a relaxing sanctuary, not just from the daily hustle but also from the rest of your home. To achieve this goal, you need a floor plan that indulges a bath without compromising other features.
Dress your tub:
Naked baths are not out, but the most fashionable designers love the idea of tiling the skirt of a bath. These were popular in the ’80s and ’90s even in modest bathrooms, but they can be a spectacular statement if you choose a subtly different tile from the rest of the bathroom.
I love looking at Pinterest and home interior websites for inspiration.
Classy bathware wins hearts!
You’ll never fail to impress by choosing top-quality fittings. Of course, these are not cheap, so it’s best to fix a budget unless money is no object. High-end faucets are essential if you take this approach. Designers favor fittings that are substantial, feeling heavy yet smooth to the touch.
I hope this give you a little inspiration if you’re considering a remodel in 2024! If you’re unsure what might be the best choices, feel free to give me a call! I’d love to come by, hear all about your ideas and contribute my own all with your success in mind! – Christy
