When the new year arrives, one of the most popular things people do is renovate their Austin homes. While virtually all rooms are renovated at some point, the bathroom is proving to be one room that gets lots of attention.
As a result, there are new decorating and remodeling trends emerging on a regular basis.
Whether you're planning an elaborate remodeling job or a minor one, there are plenty of inventive ways you can remodel your bathroom for the coming year.
Create a Spa
One of the biggest remodeling trends for bathrooms is to create a spa-like atmosphere. An appealing idea to many Austin homeowners, it allows people to have a luxurious getaway in their own home.
To create the ultimate spa, installing a jet tub will allow for some much-needed relaxation after a hard day at work.
In addition to the spa-like atmosphere, many people remodel their bathrooms to reflect their affinity for certain places. For example, coastal themes are very popular choices, since they represent idyllic and relaxing places.
While this arrangement may not lend itself to having much privacy, frameless glass showers are fast becoming the way of the future when it comes to taking a shower in your bathroom.
Rather than tile and shower curtains that need to be cleaned time and time again, frameless glass showers simply have glass surrounding them and only need to be wiped down after a shower to look good as new.
In addition to this, these kinds of showers are inexpensive to install, often costing less than one thousand dollars. But for those who want a different way to relax while getting clean, soaking tubs are expected to be one of the top remodeling trends of 2015. Popular for their distinctive look, they are also able to blend in well with a variety of looks for any bathroom.
When making a small bathroom look and feel much bigger, installing open shelving is one way to bring distinction and style to any bathroom. A great way to display common items in a fresh and innovative way, open shelving is expected to be one of the top trends of 2016 when it comes to bathrooms.
The shelves can be made of glass, metal, or wood and can offer both convenience and personality to one's bathroom. If you want form and function at its best, open shelves are a great choice.
