Everyone appreciates a beautiful bathroom, large or small.  Not only does an updated bathroom add beauty and luxuries of the modern age, but it can also dramatically increase the value of your home.   If you have decided it is time to get rid of that outdated old looking bathroom and finally spice things up, be sure to do it right this time. You need to focus both on functionality and design. Listed Below are 9 Current Bathroom Remodeling Trends to Consider:

Open & Walk-In Showers: What started as a necessity to conserve on space in small bathrooms, walk-in and open showers are now being utilized in large spacious bathrooms, even in bathrooms large enough for free standing bathtubs. You can achieve that modern minimalistic style with open or walk-in showers.
  2. Utilize Natural Elements: Bathrooms can be dull looking spaces unless they are intentionally livened up. You can accomplish this by adding natural or natural looking plants and shrubs to liven things up. Natural waterproof wood basins and vanities are also another merging trend.
