Bathroom Remodel IdeasBathroom Remodel Ideas Saint Cloud MN—  You’ve decided to take the plunge and remodel your bathroom. Soon you will embark on a fun and exciting journey that hopefully won’t be too stressful. The key to keeping the stress level low during your remodeling project is to have good bathroom remodel ideas in mind to help you along they way.

Minimizing the stress during a remodeling project is a primary benefit of working with a Saint Cloud general contractor.  For this reason alone you might want to consider calling one to help with your bathroom remodel project. If so, Craig at Schoenberg Construction would be a great choice! Before you call, however, let’s discuss some trends you might want to incorporate into your bathroom remodel.

According to MSNBC’s real estate experts, the bathroom these days is like the “new den” because people spend a lot of time in the bathroom relaxing and rejuvenating after a long day at the office. Besides, in today’s economy many people are less likely to go on vacation or spend time at the spa.  Instead they are retreating to their homes and to their own bathrooms for some “time away from it all”.

Bathroom Remodel Ideas and Trends

One hot new trend is to get rid of the bathtub altogether and replace it with an over-sized shower. Some of these showers include more than one shower head, have beautiful tile work and might even include a built-in bench so you can sit and enjoy the warm water as it cascades over you.

If you are someone who loves to soak in her tub, however, you might not be fond of this trend. So if you must have a tub, consider installing a soaking bathtub to replace that noisy Jacuzzi from the past. Large, deep soaking tubs provide a relaxing experience after a hard day at the office and are gaining in popularity according to many real estate experts.

Another exciting trend is a steam bath, which can be built into the home in a fairly small space, often as an adjunct to the bathroom. Sometimes a master closet is taken over and made into a steam bath and a new closet is built elsewhere. The switch to power the steam bath is often installed in the garage so that when you return home from work you can easily turn it on.  Then it’ll be hot and ready when you are.

And lastly, as a way of enforcing the idea of a bathroom being a sanctuary or that “new den” bathrooms are being built with as many windows as possible and lighter cabinets to brighten the space. While some people might still choose darker cabinets and darker floors and a warmer, private look, there is a trend toward a larger-looking, brighter bathroom that provides a “spa” feel.

Bathroom Remodel Ideas: Expert Recommendations

  • Other bathroom remodel ideas include making the toilet a private space. If this is not currently in the plan it can be easily created by putting up a wall between the toilet and other parts of the bathroom or creating a small, private room for the toilet carved out of a closet or other nearby area.
  • According to one real estate expert, people do enjoy spending time in the tub but it can become boring for some. Does TV help you to relax? If so, consider installing a flat screen TV in your bathroom above the bathtub.  A television can also add to that spa or sanctuary feel and provide a relaxing activity for those long hours spent in the tub.
  • A heated floor is a luxury that many of us might have assumed is for the segment of the population that can afford such indulgences, but a heated floor doesn’t have to be an expensive remodeling addition. It can, however, be one that makes a big contribution to the overall feel of your newly remodeled bathroom.
  • Many experts recommend foregoing linoleum or glazed tiles in the bathroom and instead choosing a slightly higher end product like porcelain or stone tile or even glass tile. These are products that are easy to maintain and that will help add a more luxurious look and feel to your remodeled bathroom.
