Trends in Today’s Modern Bathroom

Homeowners throughout coastal Virginia are realizing the bathroom is more than a room of convenience…it is a space for relaxation, comfort, and style. Jim Hicks Home Improvement builds beautiful bathrooms and has a portfolio filled with projects incorporating today’s modern bathroom trends.

Spa-like amenities: Push your cares aside when you enter your own in-home spa. Master bathrooms today are more like spas and less like utilitarian baths. Add a few of these features and notice the improved ambiance of your bathroom: expanded shower with built-in seating, multi-head water jets, steam room converter, heated flooring, frameless glass, soaking tub, bidet, dimmed lighting, minimalist design, and muted colors.

Universal design: If you plan to remain in your home for many years to come, there are benefits to a universally designed bathroom which you can add now while remodeling such as grab bars, comfort-height toilet, non-slip flooring, curbless shower with hand-held water nozzle, wall-mounted sink, wider doorways, paddle-style handles, and an open floor space.

Upscale features: Take your bathroom from blah to beautiful with a few high-end touches like brushed nickel or oil-rubbed bronze fixtures, dual sink vanity, pocket doors, LED lighting, glass tile, a multi-featured medicine cabinet, stereo sound, and his and hers walk-in closets. Adding a skylight is an excellent way to bring in natural light, especially if your bathroom has limited access to an exterior wall.

What to Expect During a Bathroom Remodel?

A powder room takes 2-3 weeks to remodel and a larger bathroom 4-6. A master bath with significant changes like moving walls and relocating plumbing could take longer. Design plans are finalized and permits are obtained and posted. You should expect a team of workers and contractors coming and going as they remove old tile, cabinetry, and fixtures. New framing is added next, plumbing, electrical, and drywall. Flooring, tub, sink, and shower follow. Finishing touches like tile, paint, shelves, and fixtures complete the project.

Find the Right Remodeler

A less capable company will advise you not to move plumbing when you remodel. However, the craftsmen at Jim Hicks Home Improvement have more than 15 years of experience in building bathrooms and are perfectly capable of reconfiguring your space to maximize its usefulness, even if that means removing walls and shifting plumbing.
