Throw out the old square bathtub and shower enclosure. New bathroom trends are making bathroom equipment organic and free flowing. Curved tubs, rounded mirrors and basin sinks are taking over bathroom spaces. Cabinetry lines are smoothed out and corners are removed, making edges and corners a thing of the past in the modern bathroom.
Going green is a buzz word that's been in use for some time. Green decorating ideas are often used in the bathroom space by employing low flow fixtures and energy saving lighting. But you can also go green with your home décor and other design features. From reclaimed wood to recycled tiles, an environmentally friendly bathroom space is a hot trend for bathrooms.
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.
