Trends in Bathroom Designs
Getting rid of chunky corner built-in bathtubs in ensuites is a major trend right now. The tubs take up unnecessary space and contribute to a cramped, crowded feel. Opening up the room allows for a variety of layout reconfiguration options and an airy ‘spa like’ feeling.
Replacing the built-in tubs are elegant freestanding bathtubs and a custom-designed walk-in shower. In fact, many people are forgoing the bathtub altogether in the ensuite, replacing it with a large walk-in shower/steam room with beautiful tiled benches. If your preference leans toward an ensuite with a large luxurious shower but you feel the need to retain a bathtub, keeping one in the main bathroom still leaves the option for bathing available.
If you’ve got an empty nest, why not enlarge the ensuite or put one in if none exists? Part of this is creating the space for double vanities (no more waiting for the other person to finish!).
Another trend we’re seeing in bathroom designs is floating vanities. Again, it’s all about creating a more serene, spacious look and feel in your home. Built-in storage is also popular for a tidier, well-organized space.
