Second only to a kitchen remodel, bathroom remodels are a great way to improve your living space, while adding value to your home. Bathroom remodels tend to be much easier on the wallet than kitchen remodels, mostly due to size.
Like any remodel, bathroom remodels can be daunting. Sometimes a small bathroom seems limited in scope of what you can do, and a large bathroom seems overwhelming.
Design is always evolving and improving, better plumbing, more storage, more efficient toilets, it all makes life a bit easier. Some of the bathroom remodel trends happening nationwide are also happening in Boulder. While some are being done just for the aesthetic, other remodel changes can help the flow of your bathroom and even save you a little money.
Updated Plumbing Options
One of the new trends in bathroom remodels is flushing out the old style of toilet, and embracing the new. Hidden-tank toilets are becoming more and more popular. Where is the tank you ask? The water storage is hidden inside the wall.
These are a great option for a bathroom remodel, especially if you have a smaller bathroom and are trying to save space. You can also get these toilets in low-flow models. It helps save water, every time the toilet is used. The one flaw of a hidden tank toilet is the lack of easy access to the tank, were something need to be fixed.
Another bathroom remodel trend is one you don’t even see, but can be a big help. It involves taking your drain plumbing from a standard 1 ½ inch-diameter to a 2-inch drain. It may not seem like 1/2-inch would make a difference but it does. This is especially helpful if you have kids, or a house with lots of guests.
Everyone is always trying to find more storage space in their bathrooms. Recessed mirrored medicine cabinets are a great solution. They are built into the wall, generally the side wall over your sink. They take up no space but give you plenty of storage for things you grab frequently. As a bonus, the door is mirrored on the outside and inside, giving you the ability to check yourself at all angles before heading out for your day.
Bathroom ventilation is always a concern when facing a remodel. A popular option is to add a window to the shower if possible. You can get fogged, or textured glass to conceal any wandering eyes, and you can ventilate the shower area quickly after bathing. This helps keep humidity and mold growth down in the bathroom. If putting a window in the shower isn’t an option, it is worth investing in a high-quality fan, to keep the air circulating in the bathroom.
