Asian bathroom themes are quickly growing in popularity. Integrating small palms, Asian lettering, and small graphics like those that display Geishas are becoming quite trendy when it comes to bathroom remodeling. It is important to use a lot of wood, particularly bamboo and that derived from palms, in order to develop this particular bathroom design. Many also often go for mosaic type glass and even etched glass with natural scenes that are relevant to Asia. This can be a very relaxing and interesting theme for this room in the home.
Stand alone bath tubs and showers are some of the common features of the modern bathroom. Modern designs separate the tub from the shower are using vanity finishing. In addition, modern steam rooms come with wall mounted steam heads for expediency.
People forget when transitioning from a standard bath to a whirlpool bath there are several critical factors that must be considered like plumbing, hot water heaters, and floor supports. Bathroom floors are built to bear the weight of a standard bathtub not whirlpool spa baths. Today's custom homes will accommodate most luxury tubs, but floor joists may require reinforcement in older homes if the tub is oversized especially whirlpool baths. Whirlpool baths have the water capacity of up to 80 gallons, if the proper hot water tank is not installed it will result in tepid bathwater taking away the enjoyment and purpose of a whirlpool bath.
