As times change, so do bathroom designs and trends. It can be very difficult to try to keep up with the latest trends, but also frustrating if you are unhappy with the current features in your bathroom. According to the bathroom remodel experts at Indy Renovation, here are some of the top bathroom features that homeowners most dislike and some tips for how to fix them.
Many people no longer use bathtubs as much as they used to and many only take showers. In this case, the tub-shower combo takes up space and could be replaced with a sleek, enclosed shower. If you still need a bathtub but you are bored with the old models, consider pairing your enclosed shower with a modern, stand-alone tub.
Couples or homeowners with roommates often feel cramped and irritated with their single sink vanities. If space in your bathroom allows, adding a double vanity will increase the amount of room you have to store your items and to get ready each morning. If a double vanity won’t work for your bathroom, swapping your larger vanity for a wall-mounted or pedestal vanity can create that extra bit of elbowroom you need.
Lighting is arguably the most important feature of a bathroom, but is often overlooked. Poor light placement can lead to an inadequately lit bathroom, which can be a hindrance to daily function. Upgrading your bathroom lighting is the perfect way to rejuvenate the space. First, consider the position of your overhead lighting. When mounted fixtures and recessed lighting are placed directly above your head, they can result in unflattering and harsh shadows. These lights should instead be mounted in open areas or walkways in the bathroom. Other bathroom lighting ideas include switching out your lightbulbs to achieve a softer, brighter look. LED lights are not only energy-efficient but can also offer a softer effect by emulating natural light in a space where there may not be much.
