We recently partnered with Home Advisor and began receiving some very helpful resources. One great article they published late last year but is still highly relevant today is their Top Bathroom Remodeling Trends. While all four of the areas they targeted are spot-on, we've added a bit of commentary to each and what we've found working with dozens of northern Illinois homeowners each year:
Showers Take Power: It seems that new showers have become THE focal point of the contemporary bathroom. Beyond just bigger shower heads, and more shower heads, most clients want built-in benches, shower niches or corner trays and almost everyone wants the beauty of tile surrounds (See Below. To see more of the After photos from this Diamond Bath Lake Villa project, click this recent blog post).
Floors Score High: While updates to the flooring are very common with most renovations, one question we get frequently in Illinois is about heated floors. With so many months of cold weather, the luxury of heated floors has become much more affordable during the past five to ten years and it does help home resale values as well.
Think New Sinks: The trend for his and hers vanities has not slowed one bit. While it is a bit of work to add new plumbing and drains, the benefits outweigh the expenses. While there is usually a slight decrease in available counter space, ask us about adding divider cabinetry to increase your bathroom storage space!
Crazy for Cabinets and Countertops: A decade ago the average home bathroom could get by with a laminate counter top, but the trends that started in your kitchens, with granite and quartz countertops, has slowly but surely made it's way into the master and guest bathrooms. The good news is that your bathroom countertops are typically smaller than your kitchen counters so the costs for solid surface tops are more affordable.
