5 Valuable Bathroom Trends for 2017

2017 bathroom trends

Walk-in showers with added features and hidden toilets are bathroom trends worth investing in.

More and more homeowners are realizing that their fancy whirlpool tub, while impressive, doesn’t really get used often. Bathroom design is beginning to trend more towards functional and practical styles. Upcoming bathroom trends will be good investments that you’ll be able to enjoy for years to come. Here are the top 5 upcoming trends worth investing in.

Invest in Your Showering Experience

Bathtubs are falling by the wayside as the walk-in shower becomes the most sought-after bathroom feature. Walk-in showers are great for “aging in place”, where homeowners equip their homes to be comfortable places to age. Not only are walk-in showers more easily accessible, but you can also equip them with benches, grab bars, and multiple shower heads. These showers are more comfortable and more enjoyable to use. They also age well, making them a great investment.

Save Your Back

Bathroom vanities are usually built with a standard height of 30 inches. This is perfect for a makeup vanity where you’ll be sitting to apply makeup. However, when you’re standing to brush your teeth or wash your hands, you find yourself bending and putting a lot of strain on your back. You can put less strain on your back by installing a bathroom vanity that stands at 36 inches rather than the standard 30 inches.

Discreetly Hidden Toilet

If you have a large, open master bathroom, it’s likely that you and your spouse both utilize the space at the same time while getting ready for work or going to bed. Hiding your toilet behind a wall in in a water closet adds some discreet privacy so that both homeowners can use the bathroom comfortably.

Added Natural Light

Natural sunlight will never go out of style. It boosts your mood and decreases energy bills. Adding a skylight is a great way to add more natural light to the bathroom without compromising your privacy.
