The average person visits the bathroom six-eight times a day - about 2,500 times a year. In a lifetime, most people spend about three years in the bathroom. If we also factor the time the average person spends in the shower or bath, we can add a few more years. After all, we live in a hyper-clean society! And that's not all - think about everything else you do in the bathroom, from bathing your kids to grooming for a Saturday night.
We spend a lot of time in this small space we call the bathroom. Indeed, the bathroom has evolved into a proper room, much like a bedroom or living room - and bathroom remodeling has evolved to meet the needs of this dynamic space. Today's bathroom remodeling process accounts for a variety of personal needs and a growing number of design elements. Below you will discover some of the new exciting changes in bathroom remodeling. With a bit of planning, you can incorporate some of these changes into your own bathroom remodeling project.
Most homeowners are accustomed to entering bathrooms sideways, and exiting as quickly as possible. But as people spend more time in bathrooms, the space itself is getting bigger and bigger. Some homeowners knock down walls for more space, making the bathroom a real room instead of the closet-like room most of us know. If you own an older home, indeed, you might need to knock down a wall for more room. If you're building a new house, you simply need to plan for a larger bathroom space.
Fancier Plumbing Fixtures
More room means more exploration. Making the best of larger bathrooms, homeowners have created a surge in high-end decorative plumbing fixtures. But don't let the word "high-end" scare you. As homeowners start to view quality plumbing fixtures as essential, "high-end" additions like steam and jet showers, whirlpools, Jacuzzis, and bathroom furniture are becoming more affordable and accessible.
More Design Options
Today's bathroom remodeling options are limitless. Inspired by a new perception that bathrooms can be aesthetically and stylistically interesting, the market has recently seen new materials, like water-resistant hardwood flooring and vibrant paint, as well as unique lighting, furniture, and cabinetry and hardware specifically designed for each unique bathroom. Many people might opt for a traditional porcelain white sink, but new options abound - like colored-glass sinks, antique-looking ceramic sinks, even stainless steel sinks. Additionally, bathroom vanity designs span the spectrum from antique to ultra-contemporary. New flooring options can also transform a bathroom. Finally, new colors and materials allow for highly-personalized creativity.
