Bathroom. Thursday , May 18th , 2017 - 07:01:03 AM
Mid-century American bathrooms were in love with pattern and color. The 1940s saw suburbs filled with bubblegum-pink bathroom floors, mint-green countertops, and even tubs, toilets and sinks in vibrant colors. The bold bathroom trend lasted into the 1970s — and many older homes have the avocado tiles to prove it. Then, in the 1980s, we suddenly got sick of bathrooms that had something to say. Ever since then, we‘ve been covering our bathrooms in safe, quiet choices such as beige, gray and plain white. A neutral bathroom is not all bad. But these gorgeous, graphic tile treatments make us want to kiss quiet bathrooms goodbye.
In this year‘s kitchen and bath show there was a definite sense of creative faucets that enhance your bathroom but also make life easier. From hand held faucets that grace the freestanding tub to deck mounted sinks that also offer the hand held sprayers. The sense of bringing kitchen faucet amenities to the bathroom is alive and well. Bathroom faucet manufacturers are starting to realize that the bathroom has the need for convenience and variety too.
Due to frequent use and the resulting wear and tear, bathrooms tend to start breaking down after about 20 years, whether that‘s a perpetually leaky faucet or crumbling grout or chipping tiles (or all three). On average, bathroom remodels cost $16,724, so your design should be both intentional and strategic in order to secure a high return on investment, as well as to create a functional space. That said, bathrooms are typically small, enclosed rooms so they are also a place in your home where you can play around a little bit with color and texture. Some of the most important things to keep in mind when considering different bathroom remodeling ideas are choosing materials that are easy to maintain, maximizing energy efficiency and focusing on brightness wherever possible.
