Give us a call at 626-799-3503 if you need help narrowing down your options or designing your bathroom.
We’ve all done it: Gotten out of a hot shower on a cool day and found the floor freezing. This is why most people have bathroom rugs but a new trend is making those rugs obsolete: Underfloor heating. This may seem like a vanity trend but in truth it has a number of benefits in addition to keeping your feet warm. For example, its generally about 25% more effective than a traditional heating source, which can help you cut down on heating costs overall.
It wasn’t long ago that it seemed every bathroom countertop was made from either granite and marble. Today, there are more options, the most popular of which is quartz. It is very durable as well as non-porous, which helps it resist stains, bacteria, and other types of germs. It can also be engineered to be the same color as your design, and be made into generally any shape to fit perfectly.
It used to be that a shower curtain needed to be replaced every few months or it would become faded, stained, and covered with mold or mildew. Those days are gone. Today’s modern bathrooms have seamless, open flows that let in lots of light. Frameless glass shower doors are an extension of this trend. They are tough, they are durable, and they bring an elegant feel to a bathroom. They’re also very easy to clean and are much more resistant to mold than shower curtains.
This may seem like an extravagant addition – and it is! It’s a fantastic design element that offers a delightful experience each time you grab a towel from it. If you want a spa-like experience at home, then towel warmers are a relatively affordable luxury that you can enjoy every time you take a shower.
We are seeing a serious run on freestanding bathtubs. In the past decade, jacuzzi tubs have been all the rage but today many clients are looking for quieter, more relaxing tub experiences. We offer freestanding tubs in all types of finishes, including a vintage look, sleek modern feels, and even wood or copper.
