In the midst of our "Spa-Like Bathroom" design trend that so many homeowners are pursuing, one hot topic that seems to immediately cause debate is the desire for his and hers sinks in the master bathroom. Many Illinois clients we've worked with have given up significant floor, counter top and cabinet space and increased the renovation costs dramatically in order to provide plumbing for this double sink trend. But weeks after the novelty of dual sinks wears off, how frequently are homeowners actually getting ready at the exact same time?
It's easy agree with the summary from this recent article on CheatSheet.com, titled Bathroom Decorating Trends That Homebuyers Hate: If your master bathroom already has double sinks, do not incur the expense of removing them, but if you don't have double sinks or the counter space available for them, is it truly worth the added expense and reduced space of installing them? Some new home buyers are adamant about having double sinks in their new homes and believe this feature helps home resale values. We are anxious to hear your opinions on this topic!

While they may not score points for timeliness, this month's post by Architectural Digest, A Shower Niche Is an Absolutely Must-Have in Your New Bathroom, certainly underscores an important design trend we've witnessed for at least five to ten years now. For the hundreds of bathroom renovation projects we've completed over the years in Northern Illinois, a tiled shower niche is certainly at the top of the "most requested feature" list. This is part of a larger bathroom remodeling trend we've covered before within our blog; the migration away from fiberglass shower units to custom tiled shower walls with niches and even shower benches.
