Bathroom Remodel Trends

Bathroom remodels are always popular because it is a space we use every day and is relatively inexpensive compared to other remodels. Bathrooms offer a good “bang for the buck”.

Very Nice Tile Features



If there is one theme we are seeing  it is an emphasis on Comfort. Our customers are often replacing a tub with a walk-in shower, which is easier to get in and out of, and can look stunning. We’re doing a lot of work with glass tiles combined with ceramic and porcelain tile inlays for some great looks.

We’re also seeing a lot of vessel sinks on a furniture cabinet with a beautiful countertop, and some really interesting faucets. We have a number of examples of this in the Portfolio section of our website.

Finally, heated floors are a real luxury item. They are somewhat expensive to run (an extra $20-30 per month typically), but if a homeowner has a relatively fixed morning schedule where the floor can be automatically heated up at the same time everyday, a heated floor provides fantastic comfort. We recently did a entire house with electric heat matts. Combined with super insulation they are finding it less expensive then conventional heat and much more comfortable.
