Bathroom renovation trends

As the most popular renovation in BC in 2014, according to research we reported on recently (see our blog post here), we thought we’d take a look at the design trends that are leading the way in the bathroom.

Luxury is the overriding feature, with spa-inspired, sensory-soothing interiors. Large, walk-in showers with multiple heads and programmable systems ensure the perfect temperature and flow every time you shower.

In many cases homeowners are opting to forego the bathtub to increase the space inĀ in the bathroom. Although some realtors might advise that this could impact resales, as more people are planning to stay in their homes, they are renovating to suite their own needs. However, when tubs are updated the trend is towards free standing models.

Radiant floor heating is becoming more mainstream, which also means tile floors are increasingly popular.

Custom vanities are in demand, designed to meet the homeowner’s requirements for space and to match the design of the room as a whole, whether it’s sleek and minimalist or more traditional.

In many older homes the bathroom was designed for function rather than aesthetics, and invariably it’s a small, dark and dreary space. However tiles, paint and accessories can all contribute to creating the appearance of a larger and definitely brighter room.
