According to a survey of 1,000 highly rated remodeling professionals preformed by Angie’s List, American homeowners have a surprisingly high number of remodeling projects planned for 2015. Further analysis reveals that bathroom remodeling will be the most popularly remodeled room this year as well.
Modern vs. Retro: Why not both?
At JH Custom Homes, Orange County’s Bathroom Remodeling Company, we’ve noticed an upward trend in our most recent bathroom remodeling projects. While bathroom remodeling in general has just recently gained popularity, we’ve also noticed an upward trend in mixing both modern and retro themes in one. For example, at one of our most recent Orange County Bathroom Remodeling Company job, we recently installed a beautifully vintage inspired freestanding bathtub in otherwise modern surroundings, and the result was perfection. The bathtub offset the tile and other fixtures in a playful yet cohesive manner.
Is it Still a Bathroom without a Bath?
However, consumers in general have been breaking up with their bathtubs altogether. In fact, we’ve noticed that less and less of our clients feel that their bathroom needs a bath at all. Instead, we’ve noticed that many of our Orange County Bathroom Remodeling Company jobs call for large walk-in showers with large rain head faucets and handheld sprayers.
While many Orange County Bathroom Remodeling Company Contractors may urge their clients to install bathtubs in order to maintain their homes resale value, if you plan to stay in place, your comfort and accessibility trump resale values.
On the other hand, those clients of our Orange County Bathroom Remodeling Company who do choose to have a bathtub installed tend to opt for modern freestanding or vintage claw foot styled tubs. While tile is a must for both showers and floors.
Tile on Tile
The past five years have shown an increased consumer interested in 12”X 24” tile.
No matter the color, staggering these tiles along the walls and floor of a bathroom creates a cohesive flow throughout the room’s entirety, creating a palette that’s easily accessorized.
Another reason that many of our Orange County Bathroom Remodeling Company client’s tell us that they’d like to have tile installed in their bathrooms is for radiant floor heating. And finally, while many of our clients say that they still like the look of wood, they’d rather opt out due to its maintenance requirements.
