Bathrooms have come a very long way since the beginning of what we know as the modern bathroom that came to be during the Roman Empire with the invention of plumbing. Instead of being just utilitarian, bathrooms now focus on relaxation, ease of use, and design. The details about these elements tend to evolve every few years and the latest trends in bathroom design focus on adding more. From storage to design, the latest bathroom design trends are all about giving yourself more space to relax. Some of the latest bathroom trends include double sinks, walk-in showers, large bathtubs, and storage space.
Double sinks are a useful design solution that helps save time in a family household when people are in a hurry and more than one person needs to use the sink. Having a double sink allows to people to comfortably use the bathroom to get ready without having to wait for a turn in front of the mirror with running water. A double sink also provides more counter space for all your grooming items without having to sacrifice space in a smaller bathroom. The convenience of the double sink attracts potential home buyers when you put your house on the market. Nowadays, people will be hesitant to buy a house that does not have a master bathroom with two sinks. Although double sinks take up a little more space than a single sink, it is essentially a requirement for those who are sharing a bathroom.
Walk-in showers have many wonderful benefits, both on a utilitarian level and for design and aesthetic. Walk-in showers are often made entirely of glass which is easy to clean and presents the illusion of more space in the bathroom. A walk-in shower is a nice touch to a bathroom design because it is not distracting to your bathroom décor. It also allows more room for other bathroom features, such as a spa tub. Many homebuyers love a walk-in shower separate from the bathtub, but be sure there is a tub in the bathroom as well.
Large bathtubs are an attractive features because of the relaxation opportunities it provides. A large bathtub is perfect after you have had a long day and need to unwind in a hot bath. With a larger bath, you can stretch out and relax your muscles which is an attractive feature for potential homebuyers as well. Homes that have a large bathtub in the master bath makes the entire home more luxurious, improving your resale value greatly.
There are different types of bathtubs you can choose from in your bathroom design. A basic alcove tub is usually the most popular, but you can choose from other varieties that have more unique features. For example, you can upgrade your bathroom design with a sleek modern slipper tub, a wooden tub, a tub with whirlpool jets, or even a tub that has sound and lights.
Ample storage space in your bathroom is important to be able to store the many items that room requires and is an important feature home buyers will be looking for. Towels, washcloths, toiletries, cleaners, and more need a storage solution in your bathroom for convenience and ease of use.
There are many different options available to improve the storage space in your bathroom. The most common is to upgrade your vanity which would also allow you to add the double sink option. You can add shelving above a bathtub for shampoos, bubbles, washes, lotions, perfumes, and more. You can choose a classic wall cabinet to hide towels and messy supplies you do not want on display. A storage tower is another option to roll or fold your towels in for a utilitarian design feature. Whatever you choose, be sure there is ample room for all of your bathroom necessities and think about what future home buyers might be looking for.
