Shower upgrades are a major change happening for bathrooms in 2013. Nowadays, more homeowners are transforming their simple, minimalistic showers by installing hand-held shower heads, marble shelving, and intricate wall-tiling. The goal of all of these design enhancements is to turn the ordinary shower into a spa that you could spend the whole day in.
Lighting usually serves a purely functional purpose in bathrooms. But in 2013, people are adding lights in order to boost the aesthetic appeal of these rooms as well. Key trends include putting luxurious chandeliers into ceilings and installing vintage lighting fixtures onto walls to create a dramatic effect.
Showy Sink Faucets
The sink is a vital feature of any bathroom. Recognizing this fact, interior designers are installing elegantly-crafted brass faucets into sinks, which gives bathrooms a refined and sophisticated look.
There’s nothing more uncomfortable than walking on a cold floor after taking a hot shower. While this was an issue that people simply dealt with in the past, homeowners in 2013 are actively resolving the problem by installing heated flooring. Popular flooring materials used with radiant-heat flooring systems include vinyl and ceramic tile, which are available in multiple colors and can fit into nearly any bathroom design.
