If you’re thinking about renovating your bathroom area, you’re not alone. The bathroom, after all, is the one room of the house besides the kitchen that suffers from a daily stream of hard use and constant traffic, which means that it’s likely to deteriorate faster than in any other area of the home. It’s no wonder then, that bathroom renovation is one of the most popular home improvement projects in the country, as a surefire way to improve the beauty and value of your home in one process.
At ImproveIt Home Remodeling, our company is committed to making homes better with affordable, high-quality renovations in half the time of a traditional remodel. Since our beginnings in 1989, our company has completed thousands of bathroom remodels for homeowners throughout the area and have learned quite a bit about what our customers want out of their investments in their homes.
In this article, our experts reveal our top five most requested features we’ve received in 2018 for bath remodels, to help to inspire you for your upcoming renovation project.
1) Heated Floors
One of the most popular home additions we’ve seen recently echoes the current trend towards smarter, more technologically advanced home remodeling features. In bathroom remodeling, radiant-heat flooring systems have become a well-loved option in homes throughout the country and are an innovative way to modernize an older bathroom construction, and to create a warm and cozy space in your home—especially during the cold winter days.
2) Increase the Size of the Shower
Does your one-person shower feel a little tight? If so, you might be interested in expanding your shower space to accommodate for more room or others. While this upgrade can be an attractive option to enhance the value of your home, it can also be quite practical as well—especially for those with small children or disabilities.
3) Rain Shower Head
If you are looking to replace a hard, trickling, or otherwise inefficient shower head with a gentler, yet powerful waterfall-like massage, the most suitable option is the rain shower head. This type of shower head has a larger surface area and wide-spray pattern, designed to maximize the amount and pressure of your shower’s water source. As a result, this upgrade will revolutionize your shower experience with a soft and relaxing stream of perfectly-pressurized water, simulating the feeling of standing in an actual rainforest—right in your own home.
According to experts, our body and emotions can be influenced by the vibrations and light energy that radiates from colors. In recent years, chromotherapy—also known as color therapy—has become a popular and surprisingly effective technique intended to stimulate positive feelings and improve mood, while restoring the balance which can be lost due to the stress in your daily life.
Chromotheraphy features can be adapted to your bathtub system to elevate mood and wellness, with soothing underwater LED lighting patterns designed to soothe and relax the mind. There are up to 16 different customizable options that range from warm revitalizing colors to cold calm ones and can be integrated into many different bath and shower systems.
5) Additional Storage
A truly organized home has a place for everything, with everything in its rightful place at all times. While the second part of the statement might not be true 100% of the time, knowing that you have the space available for whatever needs storage is half the battle of obtaining a well-kept and organized home.
Additional storage features have been a very popular trend in recent years, even for those with limited space in the bathroom area. Upgrades have become extremely creative, with additions that include adding duplex outlets for your hairdryer, rollout shelves, hamper pull outs, custom recessed medicine cabinets, floating vanities, and open shelving—the possibilities are endless.
