If you aren’t rich enough to buy a brand new house when you get tired of looking at your home’s bathroom, you can still upgrade your dwelling by doing a bathroom remodel.

Remodeling your bathroom will make it look better as well as make it more pleasant for you, your family and guests to use. If it’s been a while since you’ve looked at what kinds of possibilities exist for updating your bathroom, here are some hot trends that you will want to consider.

High Tech

At the top of the list for many people doing remodeling in their home is to add some technology to their bathroom. A high-tech toilet, quite popular in Japan and gaining traction in the United States, will warm the seat for you when it’s cold, for example, and provide you with gentle cleaning action with the use of a strategically placed automatic bidet feature.

After seeing drivers complain that they have to keep readjusting their seats after letting someone else borrow their car, auto manufactures introduced programmable seats that remember each person, which is great for couples who share driving chores. In a similar fashion, a hot trend in bathroom remodeling is to install customizable, programmable showers. This enables each member of your family to set the ideal water pressure and temperature before stepping into the shower.

If you’re the impatient type who talks on the phone while reading the news and checking stock market quotes, you may be interested in multitasking while in the bathroom with the help of some installed electronics. Contractors are seeing a growing trend of homeowners asking them to put in a television set, which they typically integrate with vanity mirrors or medicine chests. You can also add some charging slots to replenish the power in your cellphone or music player, letting you continue to make calls while you comb your hair or brush your teeth.

Going Green

It’s prudent to have your contractor install brand new low-flow toilets. Modern toilets are much more environmentally friendly than the ones installed over previous years. Dual-flush models are useful because they save water, according to what is being flushed.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has established the WaterSense label, which promotes conservation of water like the Energy Star label promotes efficient use of energy. During remodels, people are increasingly requesting low-flow showerheads and faucets to help protect the Earth and its natural resources.

Safety

As baby boomers get older, issues of safety in the bathroom become more important. An emerging trend is to add safety features to bathrooms during remodeling jobs. Examples include slip-resistant flooring, and drains located on the outside edge of the shower to enable wheelchair-using people easier access.

Keep Things Light For Your Bathroom Remodels

Another emerging trend in bathrooms is to install windows or skylights to let in plenty of sunshine. Companies like Fortified Roofing have been installing skylights like crazy as the rising trend becomes more prevalent. This not only makes the bathroom look more pretty, it can save you money on electricity that would otherwise be needed to power your lights.

Once you’ve decided on the elements of your bathroom remodel job with Handyman Connection, you can work with a great contractor to bring your ideas to life. Before you know it, you’ll be luxuriating in your new bathroom and enjoying life.
