Top 5 Bathroom Remodeling Trends of 2015

Many homeowners remodel their kitchens and baths to give their home an updated look. The bathroom is one of the busiest rooms of the house and is often too small to spend much time. If you are considering selling your home, then the kitchen and bath are the most important parts of the home. A bathroom remodeling project may make your home sell faster. The following five top bathroom remodeling trends of 2015 are extremely popular with today's homeowners.

Large, Enclosed Showers

Many people prefer a shower to taking a bath. Large, enclosed showers are a popular trend that can also make your bathroom look larger. Choose a large showerhead to make the most of your enclosed shower. Seamless glass doors will open up the room to reveal porcelain or ceramic tiles that coordinate with the rest of the room.

Large Bathtubs

A large bathtub with a Jacuzzi system will encourage you to spend more time in the bathroom. Soaker tubs are a popular trend for busy executives. Freestanding bathtubs are also a popular style of tub and vintage ones are especially popular. Choose a bathtub that fits the size of your bathroom without taking up too much space.

Ruston Bathroom RemodelingPorcelain or Ceramic Tiles

Many homeowners are opting for porcelain or ceramic tiles that hold up to moisture, mildew and dampness. Laminates are a cheaper option but are not as durable as porcelain or ceramic. Be sure the contractor seals the tiles to prevent staining from soap scum, mold and mildew. If you do choose to go with laminates, expect the tiles to come loose due to the excessive moisture in the room.

Granite or Quartz Countertops

Both granite and quartz are popular materials for the bathroom countertops. Granite and quartz are both durable and resist staining. However, they are both prone to scratches, but they require polishing to remove. Granite and quartz are more expensive than other countertop materials but the results are worth the cost. They also make the room look elegant and modern while coordinating with tiles and flooring.

Water-Saving Fixtures

Many homeowners are choosing fixtures that reduce their use of water. Shower heads, sink faucets and low-water toilets combine to save you money on your water bill. Consider the cost of purchasing this type of fixture versus the money you will save. Choose a name-brand that has a reputation for quality and performance for the best results.
