Thanks to the struggling economy, homeowners are not buying as many new homes as they were just a year ago but they sure are bullish on remodeling the one they have. You don't have to build a whole new home to get the extra roominess or amenities that you need: put yourself into the hands of a skilled contractor and remodel your existing space into something really special. We all like to pamper ourselves a bit, so how about redoing your tired master bath? Here are the hottest trends in bathroom remodeling to whet your appetite for change and give you some ideas on what you can do.
Get Rid Of That Tub
If you are strictly "shower people," your children are grown and gone and you have limited space, there's really no good reason to keep that old tub around. Why not go for it and have a large, airy, shower installed? The hottest trend is to install two shower heads so that two can shower more comfortably together at the same time. If one of the shower walls is an exterior one, have the contractor install a glass block window to let more natural light in without letting the neighbors see in.
Speaking of letting more light in, how about enlarging existing windows and installing skylights to create a really natural-feeling oasis with plenty of sunshine? Add a deluxe soaking tub, a collection of living green plants, and some bubble bath and you just may never leave the bathroom!
What could be more luxurious than getting out of the tub or shower on a freezing cold winter's morning and stepping onto a heated bathroom floor? Having radiant electric heat installed as part of a remodeling project is relatively inexpensive and it's a small touch that will not only keep you more comfortable, it will also be a real selling point when you go to sell your home.
A "Vantastic" Vanity
Having just one vanity in a master bedroom is simply not right. After all, there are two of you using that space! Having two separate vanities with two sinks makes life a whole lot easier, and today's sink designs are out of this world. You can choose to have elegant copper sinks and fixtures installed within equally elegant granite or marble countertops. Some faucets protrude directly from the wall, giving the appearance of an indoor fountain, right in your own home!
Having a master bathroom that is a real showpiece of functionality and style increases the value of your home as well as the pleasure that you take in living there.
