5 Inventive Ways to Remodel Your Bathroom for the New Year

Tucson home remodeling and renovation projects are always exciting, especially when they are done to start off a new year. Bringing with them anticipation and joy, these projects can transform part of a home into something spectacular. This is the case with many of today’s bathrooms, which in recent years have become rooms of relaxation.

Now often viewed as retreats from the stresses of everyday living, bathrooms are undergoing innovative and unusual transformations. If you’re looking for some new ways to make your bathroom a stress-free zone, here are some of the most popular remodeling trends for 2016.


My Bathroom is Now a Spa

For people who don’t have the time to go to a spa on a regular basis, they have decided to create their own spa in the bathroom. More and more people are now making their bathrooms into spas by installing whirlpools, hot tubs, jet tubs, soaking tubs, and more to pamper themselves as much as possible. In addition to these items, some people are now even installing comfortable pieces of furniture such as chaise loungers and recliners to help them relax even more.

Artisan-Created Fixtures

While many people think of plumbing fixtures as dull and drab, that’s no longer the case today. People everywhere are now having elaborate and in some cases very expensive fixtures installed on their sinks and tubs, with some people spending up to $10,000 on these items alone.

As these fixtures become more common, they are expected to become even more elaborate. Stained glass, exotic rocks and gems, and even diamonds are now used to give these fixtures a unique and dazzling appearance. Along with the fixtures, many of today’s sinks are now also being constructed with artistic designs incorporated into their doors, sides, and countertops.

Heated Floors, Walls, and More

For Tucson people who hate stepping out of the shower or bathtub onto a cold floor, they can now eliminate this problem by having a customized heating unit installed underneath their bathroom floor. These electric units, which can be installed by a plumber, provide an instant way to keep the floor warm day and night.

Along with these heating units for the floor, many people are now also having them installed in their walls and sinks to add extra warmth. By doing so, this offers people the chance to pamper themselves a bit more while also having warm feet day and night.
