Residential Bathroom Design Trends

Home Improvement,Interior Design,Consumer
Bathroom design updates and remodels are going to be hot in 2015. If you plan to sell your home in the next year or so, remodeling the master bath is one of the most helpful modifications you can make to increase value and salability. Even if you don’t have plans to put your home on the market, remodeling your home’s bathrooms can greatly improve your own quality of life. Read on for the newest ideas in bathroom design this year.

Why Remodel Your Bathrooms in 2015?

The National Association of Realtors recently named bathroom remodels as one of the top three most effective home projects for increasing value and recovering investment (along with kitchen remodels and window replacement). Bathroom remodels recoup homeowners 85 percent or more of the cost invested, while increasing the property’s value and improving its salability (time needed to sell). For even more value, and to greatly increase your home’s livability, add a bathroom. Most buyers demand 2.5 baths today: a master bath, a full-size family bath and a powder room for guests. In some places, adding a full bath to a one-bedroom home increases the value by 25 percent or more.

Hottest Bathroom Design Ideas

Experts recommend using high-quality construction materials that appeal to the widest array of potential buyers. Even if you don’t have any plans to sell your home today, you may feel differently a year from now. For this reason, it’s usually wise to avoid any extreme color choices or quirky design motifs. Bad design can harm property values as much as good design can help. Use neutral colors and materials that will endure over time. You may be surprised to know that many people are ditching the master bathtub, especially the water-wasting, expensive-to-use tubzillas. An increasing number of home buyers look for shower spas today, with little to no concern for a tub. Add splashes of color and personalization with towels and accessories, allowing you and any potential home buyers to update the room easily and affordably whenever the inclination strikes.

Making your Bathroom Renovation Dollars Stretch

Designers advise the use of quality products, but not super high-end (unless your home is high-end, of course). This represents a significant departure from the design ethos of the past couple of decades, where homeowners were advised to leave the bathroom layout alone but add the most expensive, flashy finishes they could afford. To make your renovation dollars stretch the farthest, spend the bulk of your budget on the room’s bathroom fixtures, layout and functionality. Future home buyers aren’t afraid of redoing tile, but they often balk at structural modifications. Buyers are looking for water-saving toilets, vessel sinks and clean, contemporary faucets. Hand showers are considered an upgrade, as are rain showers and body sprays.

As a caveat to how much value a bathroom renovation brings, the National Association of Realtors added that using professional contractors is necessary to produce appropriate value. Do-it-yourself remodels may seem like a good idea, but unless you can demonstrate to buyers and appraisers that the work was done by a licensed contractor, you may not be given credit for its value. For the best value for your investment, contact a licensed plumber in your area to discuss your ideas for bathroom design.
