A new year is always an exciting time. Flush from making resolutions, it’s a time of optimism and high energy. Many choose to use the new year to make not only personal changes, but also material ones to their homes. In Hampton Roads, bathroom additions are one of the more popular ways to add value to a home.
Here are some bathroom trends to be on the lookout for in 2016:
- Many homeowners are choosing to upgrade their bathrooms by going big. Larger shower spaces with all the proverbial bells and whistles are a hot trend. This includes adding rainwater or multi-spray shower heads and aromatherapy steam showers. Another trend is adding built-in containers in which you can pre-load your favorite shampoos, soaps, and conditioners into easy to use dispensers. Adding seating areas to a big shower space is also a popular shower addition.
- Freestanding sinks and tubs are also one of the hottest trends in bathroom additions. A freestanding tub or sink gives your bathroom a sleek, modern appearance, whether done in traditional white, subtle gray, or striking black. Adding a sunken, freestanding tub takes this to another level. You could even cap it off with a whirlpool tub to make this addition even better.
- Another hot trend is opening up a bathroom addition to the outside world. If there’s one golden rule about architecture, it’s to give the space a view. One of the trends for bathroom additions has been adding large windows or even entire glass walls to open up the space to the outside.
