In some cases, a bathroom trend turns out to be nothing more than a fad. In other cases, new innovations can quickly become standbys. The trouble is in trying to figure out the difference. As you’re working on your bathroom remodel, you don’t want to spend a ton of money on something that’s going to be outdated in a few years. Following are a few of the latest trends that those of us at Mission West Kitchen and Bath believe are here to stay.
It wasn’t long ago that everyone wanted to have a tub in their bathroom with whirlpool jets. These days, we’re finding that many homeowners aren’t as interested in tubs at all. They find that, despite their best intentions, they never end up using them and they are just wasted space. For this and other reasons, we’re seeing a lot of people choosing walk-in showers.
A walk-in shower is inviting, easy to get into, and is very customizable. You can also get in quickly, as you don’t have to wait for a tub to fill up, and with customized shower heads and unique seating in the shower, you can still have a spa experience. The fact that walk-in showers are also more accessible can be a huge selling point for a home, as it’s then a bathroom that a person can age into.
Privacy has begun to be more and more important to people choosing bathroom upgrades and we expect this will continue to be a selling point for many years to come. The reality is that couples want to be able to use the master bath at the same time without feeling that they’re on display. A toilet behind a wall, or even in a separate water closet, can help add comfort and privacy to a bathroom.
A walk-in closet isn’t just about storing clothes anymore – it’s about adding more privacy. It’s a great option when one partner gets up earlier than their partner, or when one comes in much later than the other. Upgrades like makeup vanities or custom lighting can make the space more unique and more functional. Having this quiet area is great for parents who want a few minutes before the kids get up, for single folks who want to streamline their morning and even processes, and anyone else who values privacy.
No matter what you decide to add to your remodeling project, you need quality materials and products. That’s exactly what you’ll find with Mission West Kitchen and Bath. We opened many years ago because we wanted folks to have one place to go for kitchen and bathroom fixtures, appliances, lighting, and much more.
