According to a recentHouzz & Home survey, homeowners are investing more on bathroom renovations than in previous years, largely due to outdated designs and finishes. What types of upgrades are they spending money on? Here are some of the latest trends and tech updates being used in bathroom design.
Aesthetic Additions You don't have to tackle a full overhaul to make a big impact in the bathroom. Smaller changes can often bring big rewards, both from a resale perspective and by adding value to your daily experience.
Cosmetic favorites, according to the National Kitchen & Bath Association's2016 bathroom trends, include polished chrome finishes and neutral colors like white and gray. And bathrooms are becoming more streamlined with floating vanities, open shelving and undermount sinks. When larger changes are made, homeowners are incorporating amenities such as no-threshold showers and higher vanity heights that allow for aging in place.
Tech Touches When you consider updating the appliances in your home, you may automatically think of doing so in the kitchen, living area or laundry room. Many, however, are quickly adopting technological advances in pursuit of thesmart bathroom. Some of the more popular add-ons available include:
High-tech toilets:The most basic bathroom appliance now has seat-warming options, LED lights, motion sensors and automatic dryers.
Accessorized soaking tubs:You can take a basic bath, or you can soak in a chromotherapy tub with mood-enhanced lighting. Or enjoy an air bath, with massaging bubbles similar to a hot spring.
Digital faucets and showers:Along with reduced flow, which conserves water and money, faucet features also include touchless technology and programmable settings like a timed shower option.
Which market trends and tech updates appeal most to your family? When done well, these upgrades can improve your quality of life and increase the value of your home.
