Bathroom Remodeling Trend: Safety with Style
A growing trend among homeowners is to focus on remodeling bathrooms where every detail is brought together to create a total experience rather than a functional space. From stylish tiling to spa-like amenities to hi-tech entertainment systems, modern bathrooms are becoming veritable sanctuaries of wellness and rejuvenation.
For aging homeowners however, safety concerns in the bathroom are of paramount importance. With today’s innovations in bathroom design, creating a safe bathroom environment doesn’t have to come at the expense of style and luxury. With the right choices, it’s quite possible to make your bathroom be safe and functional yet stylish and modern.
One example is the installation of low-profile linear drains. These are long, straight drains that can be installed in various locations around the shower. Unlike regular round drain covers that are typically near the front end of a shower, linear drains minimize the slope of the shower floor. If installed at the outside edge of a shower for example, linear drains can create a curb-less, relatively flat shower floor which is both stylish and wheelchair accessible.
Another example is the rapidly-expanding selection of porcelain, glass, and ceramic tiles. With so many types to choose from, it is now easier than ever to find floors that are slip-resistant and low-maintenance yet stylish. Everything from faux wood to linen and uniquely-textured tiled bathroom floors and walls add both aesthetic sensibility and enhanced traction for wet feet.
