Bath Remodeling in Phoenix: Today’s Trends Focus on Luxury and Comfort – Part 1

bath_remodeling_phoenixWhen it comes to bath remodeling in Phoenix, luxury and comfort are definitely in.  In fact, the bathroom has become a spa-like retreat for many homeowners – even a new den.  Upgrading your bathroom makes sense if you want a place to escape.  But, it’s also a good investment, adds value to your home and may help you sell your home down the road.

The following are popular choices for today’s bath remodeling in Phoenix.  These items represent attractive options for you and the market.

Showers.  Bigger is better when it comes to new showers.  And, if there’s not enough space for a nice, airy walk-in shower, many homeowners are doing away with the bathtub.  The shower is a major factor in bath remodeling in Phoenix to create a spa-like feel.


In fact, many bath remodels are taking the European approach.  Removing some or all of the shower walls and tiling the entire area is an attractive option.  With the proper drainage, this takes “open and airy” to the highest level.

Tubs.  Jacuzzis used to be all the rage recently.  But many homeowners are opting for soaking tubs instead.  Bath remodeling in Phoenix still includes the tub, but in a more peaceful, relaxing context.

In addition, many homeowners want to include grab bars for safety in both shower and bathtub areas.  But, these aren’t your “nursing home” variety.  Today’s grab bars are well designed and visually appealing.  When done right, they blend into the bath design and enhance it rather than detract from it.

Steam Rooms.  The ultimate in luxury, you can’t beat a steam bath after a long day at work.  However, this upgrade to bath remodeling in Phoenix takes some expert advice and construction.  Typical components a sloping ceiling to drain condensation, seat, floor drain, tile or marble surfaces and vapor-tight door.

Toilets.  Another trend in bath remodeling in Phoenix is to make the toilet more private.  Contractors do this by walling off the toilet or even making a separate room.  An option available many homeowners don’t consider is moving things around.  With today’s PVC pipes, nothing is fixed in one place.  Even a toilet can be moved to another location easily and affordably.
