Your bathroom should be a place of comfort with a touch of luxury that helps you to relax after a stressful day at the office or an afternoon of shuttling kids to practice and back again. Here are 4 trends in luxury bathroom remodeling in Massachusetts that can help you to achieve a respite from the rush.
1. Large, Airy Showers – A large shower with an airy feel is a popular request for bathroom remodeling projects. There are several ways to make your shower larger. Some homeowners are removing their bathtub to make room, while others are using tempered glass walls and doors to make the shower feel bigger. Heavy glass on hinges makes the bathroom feel large, roomy and luxurious. Another trend is to remove the walls entirely or create partial walls to create a chic European look.
2. Warm Floors – Radiant electric heat in the floor eliminates the discomfort of cold tiles under bare feet in any season. It’s surprisingly energy efficient. Another hot trend is to install a heat mat under the walls and floors of the shower, especially spacious ones, to create an atmosphere of warmth more quickly.
3. Water Systems On Demand – Go greener. Energy efficient water systems create hot water on demand without using a traditional hot water heater. For homes that use about 40 gallons or less of hot water daily, demand water systems can be 24% – 34% more energy efficient than traditional water heaters.
4. Entertainment– For the homeowner with a tub, installing entertainment systems is a popular addition to the bathroom remodeling project. Hiding a flat screen TV behind a mirror that’s invisible until it’s turned on is a growing favorite among those who like to take a long, luxurious soak without the silence. Small coolers and a place to set a drink are also in trend for refreshments while relaxing in the bathtub and watching TV.
