The home has long been seen as a sanctuary, a place to relax and recover from the pressures of daily life. In today’s fast-paced world, people are looking to de-stress in any way possible. The interior design industry is seeing the effects of this as bathroom remodeling trends move toward styles that are calm, relaxing, and comforting while still incorporating all of today’s modern conveniences. Traditional styles get a modern twist. Whether a bathroom update or a new build is in the plans, Lemon Bay Glass completes the project with no drama!
1. Mirror, Mirror, Oh Wow!
Bathroom remodeling trends show a move toward a light and airy feel with an emphasis on mirrors. These can include old-world accents like an ornate brass frame, or they can cover an entire wall for a more modern look; however, the effect is the same: a brighter, bigger-feeling room. The walls are not the only place where mirrors are appearing. Reviving the art-deco style of the 1930s and 40s, mirrored vanities and other furniture are being included in bathrooms.
Whether a bathroom update or a new build a wall-sized mirror installed in front of the vanity is key. It not only gives the space a luxurious look but also makes the bathroom appear larger. The wall-sized mirror should be installed along with a trimming of crown molding in a sleek but matt finish for an elegant look. The crown molding will act as the frame for the mirror and give the bathroom a regal and luxurious ambiance. If you are looking for a more trendsetting mirror, take a look at our LED mirrors. These products will illuminate any bath beautifully.
2. Going Frame Free or Semi with Showers
For those who don’t like or simply don’t have space for a large soaking tub, frameless and semi-frameless glass showers reign supreme. In keeping with the airy feel of many bathrooms, frameless designs make the most of every square foot and can even make the room seem larger. Not only are frameless shower doors attractive and functional, but they’re also very safe. Each panel is made of thick safety glass that’s been tempered to withstand impacts.
If you’re building, remodeling, or just upgrading an existing bathroom, frameless shower doors, and semi-frameless should definitely be on your list. Toss out those moldy old shower curtains or ugly aluminum framed shower doors and ride the wave! You’ll be absolutely amazed at what a huge difference these shower doors will make in the appearance of your bath. The various styles are a great way to inject modernism into an otherwise classic room. Enjoy your remodel with a new glass shower enclosure.
3. Decorative Glass Brings a Room to Life
Designers and homeowners have a wonderful way to bring beauty and function to the bath. The replacement of builder-grade materials is a way to add a personal touch to the remodel. Utilizing different levels of glass opacity (e.g. frosted) and patterns (or textures) can create exclusively intimate spaces for the bath as well as other areas of the home. Combining standard textures and design features brings your personal touch and artistic flair to the room.
Homeowners with an eye for art have an exciting option available. Lemon Bay Glass is ready to assist with the most creative way to add room flair. We work closely with a professional glass etcher. He takes designs and creates works of art. Etched glass brings the ultimate in personalization to a room. Let’s talk about your spa retreat!
4. Updating Showers or Tubs
Whether you have a tub or standup shower there is a glass enclosure for you. Sliding swinging doors or no doors we are ready when you are. Let us see what would best fit your floor plan and style.
Easily step into a shower without any door. Glass side panels will do the trick when it comes to keeping water inside and not all over the bath.
5. An Enclosure for a Wet Room
Open up and expand, making your bath feel more luxurious & spa-like. A ‘wet room’ combines the bathtub and shower together behind a full or partial enclosure, keeping water out of the rest of the bath. It’s a bathroom where all or most of the surfaces are intended to get wet. Wet rooms seem like a practical thing to consider on a new build or during a bathroom renovation since choosing water-resistant materials and making sure the space is equipped with the proper plumbing to accommodate a wet room is a must.
