The year 2014 was a strong one for home improvement spending, thanks in large part to gains in home prices. Bathroom projects have been a major part of this trend.
According to Consumer Reports, bathrooms are second only to kitchens on people’s wish list of spaces to remodel. Given the amount of time homeowners spend in the bathroom, it makes sense that many are looking to update the space and make it as comfortable and inviting as possible.
Technology takes center stage
Homeowners who haven’t updated their bath space in a while are often surprised to discover the high-tech features that are available today. Among the popular innovations are lighting and sound systems, as well as fog-free shower mirrors that make it easier to shave.
Soothing powers of hydrotherapy
While bathrooms may be getting a little bit smaller as people are looking to right-size their homes, many homeowners are choosing to implement spa-like features. One of the most refreshing options is a DriftBath tub, which can turn the bath space into a quiet getaway. DriftBath is just one of the many hydrotherapy systems offered by Aquatic.
Clever fixtures help simplify routines
Adding storage can help minimize clutter in the bath and make it more useful. Upper walls and corner spaces can be a great location for cabinets. Dividers for drawers can also be handy. For master bathrooms, double vanities with his/her sinks are often desired, and this feature can add to a home’s resale value.
Accessible features work for everyone
One of the biggest trends in bath design is to add features that make it functional for people of all ages and abilities. Aquatic’s accessible bath products and accessories are designed to enhance comfort and safety, without compromising on style.
