One of the most popular home improvement projects is a bathroom renovation. And with a median spending amount of around $9000, there is a lot to think about and a lot of decisions to make, especially if it’s a master bath.Â
What most homeowners start to consider first are all of the changes they would like to make. However, sometimes itâ€™s easier to start with what you like and what you would like to keep or upgrade.Â
Other people have an idea of one or two items that they have to have and then build around it, like a copper tub or wood/stone elements. Still, others are very open to what’s trendy at the moment. With that in mind, here are 5 of the most popular bathroom remodels available now:
- Statement Copper BathtubsÂ
We mentioned this one in both the intro and first because it is one of the most popular and in-demand products in today’s bathroom renovations. It’s not only that they are very attractive and bring a rustic feel to the room, but they also offer several benefits.
They maintain themselves through regular use. And any scratches darken and blend back into the original color with time. On top of that, copper has many health benefits from skin regeneration to hair rejuvenation
- Custom Walk-In ShowersÂ
Walk-in showers are not only for personal benefit and indulgence; it also adds value to your home. People love space and the room to move when they shower. And with so many designs and customizations available, you really can create your dream bathing area.
- A Resurgence of Stone and Wood
We also mentioned these in the intro because they have enjoyed a renewed popularity after losing appeal for a few decorating cycles. They are especially popular in some types of combination, such as wood floors and a stone shower (adding a sauna atmosphere).
- Utilizing Darker Shades
Bathrooms have been traditionally white, or some type of light combo. However, in recent years darker colors, such as navy, have become popular as well. You can even do a black accent wall against a white bathroom with checkered floors if you wanted to go in that direction.
- Repurposing the Same Materials
A lot of people are going this route not only for financial purposes (using existing materials greatly reduces costs) but because of the environmental impact as well. A second benefit is that you can save your favorite aspects of the old bathroom (like copper bathtubs, mirrors, or flooring) to use in the new design.Â
When It Comes to Bathroom DÃ©cor, We Haven’t Even Scratched the Surface
There are so many other options, styles, and designs available to folks who are looking to update or remodel their bathroom. With so many choices in every aspect of the design, it can sometimes get overwhelming.Â
Rather than agonize over each decision, decide which accessories and items are most important to you, such as a stylish bathtub and sinks, lighting, or color scheme, and then make the rest of your choices around those things.
