Innovate Predicts Top Bathroom Trends for 2015
The bathroom as we know it is changing in 2015, moving past basic functionality and into a new realm of relaxation and comfort. Designers and homeowners alike are looking beyond how our rooms look and best serve us, envisioning how they make us feel as well. From large, spa-like showers to low-flow toilets and grout-free walls, here are some of our design predictions for New Year:
- Out with the outdated bathtub, in with the new, expansive shower. The spa soaking tub that was extremely popular in the 1990’s is meeting its demise after evolving into a clutter catch-all for many years. Homeowners will begin utilizing this wasted space by building bigger, better showers in 2015 with features that will improve comfort level, relaxation and safety. Many of the new designs will incorporate zero-threshold showers for a seamless flow that is accessible by all users, regardless of age or ability.
- High-tech and energy-efficient features. Although they have been making significant gains in popularity for several years, 2015 will be an even bigger year for “green” plumbing products, including low-flow toilets, water-saving showerheads, and tank-less hybrid water heaters as consumers are more becoming more mindful of the importance of sustainable, eco-friendly improvements in their homes. In addition, digital technology will be breaking through the bathroom door, with digital programmable showers, WiFi music connections, and flat television screens that will take the space from functional to enjoyable.
- Colorful, eye-catching products that are low-maintenance. One of the coolest new products that we are excited about at Innovate Building Solutions is our luxurious line of Lustrolite high-gloss acrylic wall panels. Lightweight, flexible and easy for DIYers or professionals to install, these walls offer the look of back-painted glass at a fraction of the cost. Their smooth, glossy finish is sleek and contemporary and best of all, requires very little upkeep. Long gone are the days of scrubbing between grout-joints with abrasive cleaners! The non-stick surface of these walls can simply be wiped down using warm water and a soft micro-fiber cloth. How cool is that?
