According to recent survey made by Angie’s List, the number one room that will be subjected to renovations this year is the bathroom. However, bathroom projects are not cheap. Remodeling can cost between $10,000 and $20,000 depending on whether the homeowner simply wants the bathroom to become functional or if the goal is to create a spa-like ambiance.
One of the reasons why homeowners have finally decided to remodel the bathroom is for maintenance purposes. They are tired of fighting grout line and the frequent need to re-caulk. They want a bathroom that is easier to clean without the outdated grouted ceramic tile and tub-shower combo. Besides that, if the bathroom was built 20 years ago, it is about time to have it remodeled to experience the satisfaction of a more sophisticated personal space.
According to Angie Hicks, what consumers are looking for right now is less work around the home because they have better things to do with their time than scrubbing the tiles of the bathroom. The trend that bathroom remodelers see for the present include cultured marble, frameless glass shower doors and screens, sleek fixtures, quartz or granite countertops and luxury vinyl tiles which were quite popular commercially due to its durability and wood-like or tile-like look.
Frameless glass doors and screens and floating vanities are the favorites in bathroom remodeling because they make the space look bigger than it actually is. Traditional tub and shower combinations are already passé with more luxurious showers taking their place. If the homeowner still wants to retain the bathtub, the modern version is the free-standing artsy model.
Modern finishes to give the bathroom an updated look include chrome, brushed nickel and Venetian bronze. People nowadays tend to prefer a more open feel in their bathrooms instead of the traditional compartmentalized space. They are trying to take down walls to produce that spa-like effect.
