We all know that kitchens age quickly, with the trends in colors, appliances, and layout changing every few years. But did you know that the bathroom can also look dated and out of style? The timeline is slower, but there is a timeline, according to home design experts.
Changes in technology now make it simple and easy to enjoy some spa-like features in the comfort of your own home. Some of these items you’ll be able to install on your own, while for others, you’ll want help from your Ashland building contractor.
Want a simple way to give your bathroom the 2014 look? Integrate some black into your color scheme. Black towels, shower curtains and accent pieces will give your bathroom a more modern look on a budget. When we’re talking about actual bathroom remodels, you’ll want to talk to your Ashland building contractor about building in some ledges: the trendy alternative to shelves adds stylish storage space.
Floating vanities are another trendy look that make the most of the space available in small bathrooms. These built in features are especially popular if you want to draw attention to an attractive flooring choice. They’re also great when it comes to making cleaning the bathroom simple and easy – something to keep in mind if you’re going to be growing old in your current home!
Stand alone tubs and barrier free showers are two very popular looks. Barrier free showers are designed to be flush with the floor: a special rubberized membrane keeps water in without the need to have a threshold wall that can be difficult to step over for people with mobility or balance issues. It’s a feature that’s been popular in Europe for years: talk to your Ashland building contractor about what it would take to have this look for your home!
