To say that bathroom remodeling has evolved would be a huge understatement. The old days of putting up barriers and team-lifting the heaviest, bulkiest toilets, sinks, and tubs are out. What’s trending is the process wherein today’s consumer has customized their dream bathrooms and put a personalized touch on most of their ideas.
People today are clamoring their homes with transitional looks and contemporary designs. The old and tired standard look doesn’t apply to modern day families, and most of the new homeowners prefer their bathroom to have plenty of open space while their toilets, sinks, and showers become compact.
We see a lot of homeowners breaking down the walls and creating an adjoined look from the bedroom to the bathroom, giving the customer a bigger space to fit their comfort level. When it comes to amenities, we are noticing more of a push for safety features. Homeowners of today have been requesting shower seats, extra lighting for the shower, showers with no threshold, and comfort heights. Bisque colors have lost their popularity with homeowners, as we see the change to more simple color themes like white. Gold themes have risen in popularity with the consumer as well.
While it is hard for us in the bathroom remodeling industry to get a good feel of what is in and what isn’t, engaging with customers online has changed the landscape for those in the industry and those looking for their perfect bathroom.
Evolution of Bathroom Remodeling
Today, with the technology available to everyone involved, you can pick out a design ahead of time or even go to a website to gain ideas and tips for a smooth remodeling experience. Floating vanities and open shelving are catching favor with remodeling customers, while a demand for ceramic tile flooring and durable vinyl has also become more commonplace.
Homeowners have actually become intrigued by the idea of adding extra windows into their bathrooms. People are choosing natural light and the fresh air environment, compared to the times when bathrooms were built to keep everything enclosed. Natural light is capitalized on as it is the most reliable form of light for examining clothing and makeup, in the same manner, it will be observed in outside.
Big tubs and whirlpools are also on their way out as people have decided to go with a freestanding tub instead. While the theory of smart toilets, and smart showers are certainly a possibility in today’s modern American bathroom, people have yet to flock toward this idea. The main focus in bathroom remodeling of today is allowing more space and organization. The traditional bathroom size is almost equivalent to closet size, but this commonplace idea is fading. The crazy colored themes and designs have been replaced by off-whites and grays.
Like most industries, if you don’t evolve with the demand and embrace the change, you won’t be able to keep up and survive. Renovation and remodeling contractors love a challenge, and ultimately what hasn’t changed is their desire to satisfy a customer’s wish.
