Homeowners who need inspiration for their bathroom remodeling need look no further. Here are the best bathroom designs for 2016.

Trough Sinks

Trough sinks are increasingly replacing the use of double sinks. The trough sink is an extra-long sink that allows enough space for two people to make use of it at the same time. It also has a practical bonus of being large enough to hand wash bulky items, such as an over-sized wool sweater, or to bathe a baby or small dog without the inconvenience of being hunched over a tub.

Built-In Safety

Shower seats and grab bars, until recently, were primarily reserved for the elderly. Not anymore. They are fast becoming commonplace in all households. They add a level of safety for any home, but particularly for those homes where children or seniors reside. Don’t expect these to be the perfunctory units seen in nursing homes either. They are designed to fit seamlessly with the rest of the bathroom décor.

Accessible Showers

Whereas it used to be common to have to step into the tub to access the shower or over a ledge in a free standing shower, it is now becoming more popular to have a curbless entry. This design eliminates the tripping hazard and gives the room a seamless look. 

Water Efficient Appliances

Environmentally conscious homeowners should include water efficient appliances in their bathroom renovations. Shower heads, toilets, and faucets are now being designed to conserve water, which not only helps the environment, but also lowers water bills.

Heated Floors

Stepping onto a cold bathroom floor is not a fun way to begin the day. The solution? Install heated flooring. This produces an even heat to keep feet warm and comfortable, even when the rest of the house is cool.
