If you’re ready to update your bathroom, take some time to analyze the top trends. While black and white wallpaper might be popular now, think about whether it will be popular in the future. Choosing a timeless design that also offers functionality is one of the most crucial aspects of a bathroom remodel. Frameless Showers – In a recent survey, a majority of homeowners preferred glass showers and glass enclosures. The retro glass block look is a trend of the past! Show Me the Light – One of the major goals for homeowners is gaining more light, whether it’s direct sunlight or skylights. LED lights near the showerhead have also been gaining attention. White Cabinetry – White cabinets in the master bathroom are first on a homeowner’s checklist followed by dark wood. Opt for maple, cherry or oak! Silver Hardware – You’ve probably noticed (without realizing) silver faucets and hardware in the bathroom cabinets. Splurge on a Powder Room -  If you have some additional money left in your budget, a powder room adds a nice touch. This unique feature really makes your bathroom quite extraordinary. Consider a beautiful pedestal sink, wallpaper and hardwood floors. Maybe you need one or two items to spruce up your bathroom such as a new Vanico sink or a Maax bathtub. Large bathroom remodel or minor changes, give us a call for the best bathroom products!

Many of our clients are looking to design a bathroom with their children in mind. One of the main objectives for homeowners is designing a bathroom that is completely safe for their little ones without jeopardizing the safety of their children. There is actually a slew of items on the market and DIY tasks that can be used to create the perfect child-friendly bathroom. Designing a Step Stool If you adore DIY projects, create a homemade stool to raise your children. This allows them to access the sink easily. A pine board and plywood works wonders and with some wheels, you can easily store this in the closet. Small Ceramic Tiles Little children are quite adventurous so it’s important to have enough traction so your children don’t slip. Small ceramic tiles that have grout offer enough traction to alleviate any accidents. Wall-Mounted Trough A wall-mounted trough offers plenty of room for multiple kids to access the sink at the same time. If you don’t love the color of the trough, you can easily paint this with a gorgeous accent color. Open Shelves Rather than having your children shuffle through towels and other toiletries, open shelving allows for them to grab items much quicker. Select a Large Sink A trough sink instead of double sinks is much more accommodating for children. It’s quick and simple to clean and leaves plenty of space.

Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Where should the outlets go?
  • Where do I place the lights?
  • Will the towels hang low?
  • Do I need two or three mirrors for the bathroom?
  • What type of cabinet hardware do I need?
Design for Functionality – Take the time to sit down and think about your bathroom’s functionality.

modern bathroom designWhile designing a bathroom can be quite challenging, a small bathroom can be an even greater hurdle. The designers at the Bath Showcase have years of experience designing bathrooms in Massachusetts while providing clients with the proper products to enhance their bathrooms.

The Bath Showcase offers tips on how to make your bathroom appear much larger!

  1. Incorporate Mirror Walls

You can easily double the look of a small room by adding mirrors across an entire wall. When hung above a vanity or on one side of a narrow bathroom, mirrors can be extremely effective. Mirrors also reflect light which makes the bathroom look a bit more open.
  1. Wall-Mounted Toilet

Save leg room and floor space by installing a wall-mounted toilet.   You could also, incorporate shelving above the tank of a toilet if you have a standard floor-mounted toilet to increase storage space.
  1. Replace the Tub

A bathtub could take up nearly twice as much space as spacious shower.  By eliminating the bathtub and replacing it with a shower, you can really enlarge the bathroom. If you have small children who still bathe, consider replacing a tub with a low profile option. The shorter height allows children to get in and out with ease. It also  makes the bathroom feel more open.
  1. Frameless Glass Tub Enclosure

Shower curtains can accrue a lot of grime and can be quite challenging to work with. They also make the bathroom appear one-third smaller. To increase space, install a frameless glass panel which will also help to capture a vast amount of light. Try to avoid framed sliding glass panels on a “U” channel, as they can move off the track and are a bit tougher to clean.
  1. Opt for Curbless Showers

For a homeowner with a concrete floor, stone slab or even a tile floor, a curbless shower maybe a perfect option.   Eliminating the curb step around the shower area and allowing the flooring to continue right inside creates a clean open and safe space.
  1. Floating Vanities

Similar to wall-mounted toilets, wall-mounted sinks are a great way to save floor space.  If the “open concept” is an important element for you, go with a wall-mounted floating vanity.
  1. Pocket Doors

A pocket door is one of the best ways to enlarge your bathroom, gaining up to nine square feet of space in a small room. If you are ready to start with your bathroom remodel, contact the Bath Showcase. We offer a wide array of bathroom products and have highly knowledgeable designers at the ready to help.
