Bathrooms are one of the most popular and commonly remodeled rooms in the home. And since they are a high-traffic space (and one where updates are noticeable), doing so can have a significant effect on resale value.
Tile flooring is common in bathrooms and offers a nice alternative to hardwoods, which can get warped if they are exposed to too much water. If you decide to put ceramic tile on the floor, look for a grade of 1 or 2, a water-absorption rating of less than 7 percent and a coefficient of friction above .60, which are slip-resistant and can stand up to water.
The latest bathroom trend involves the use of a focal wall. Homeowners often make a big investment in beautiful fixtures and finishes; a bold focal shower wall draws the eye to all the beautiful details in a shower space.
Selecting the proper lighting in your bathroom is important because a light, bright room will feel bigger. Good lighting can transform the space and make all other design elements pop. Unless you’re particularly savvy with electrical work, leave electrical projects to professionals unless you’re just swapping out a fixture. In terms of efficiency, install LED lights. They use at least 75% less energy and last 25 times longer than incandescent lighting (and won’t heat up the room).
Then, in the 1980s, we suddenly got sick of bathrooms that had something to say. Ever since then, we`ve been covering our bathrooms in safe, quiet choices such as beige, gray and plain white. A neutral bathroom isn’t all bad. But these gorgeous, graphic tile treatments make us want to kiss quiet bathrooms goodbye.
