Installing subway tiles in your shower or other areas of your bathroom creates a beautiful look that will never go out of style. While glossy, white tiles are often the easiest to come by, you can get subway tiles in any color or finish that you’d like to fit your bathroom. They’re simple, easy to clean, durable, and provide a solid pattern that makes them easy to install. Your subway tiles will last for a long time without needing to be replaced.
The easiest color to stick with in a bathroom is white. Bathtubs and toilets are often made out of porcelain because of their hard and impermeable properties. It’s also naturally white. You’ll find that most homeowners use white as the base color for the bathroom because of the bathtub and toilet. While you might be bored of this traditional color scheme, it’s not something that will always be the easiest way to go because of the color of porcelain. This, of course, is until toilets are made from a material of a different color.
They seem to come and go over the years, but stand-alone bathtubs are very in right now. More people are enjoying having the ability to soak in a tub at night before taking a shower or instead of one. A stand-alone bathtub gives you this option while retaining your preferred walk-in shower.
One problem with having a bathtub to soak in is that water is more likely to leak over the top. If your tub is in the middle of the bathroom and away from the shower, you risk soaking your bathmat, having water drip into your vents, or even sustaining water damage on the floor. You can remedy this by building a wet room. The concept of a wet room is that you can create a large enough space in your bathroom where you still have your walk-in shower, but the bathtub is in there with you. This takes away the worry that might come with water overflowing in the bathtub and causing damage to the rest of the room. You can have a freestanding bathtub placed in the wet room or install a soaking tub.
While the technology might eventually need to be updated, there are plenty of ways that you can incorporate smart tech into your bathroom that will always be convenient. If you don’t like getting out of the shower to a cold floor in the winter, underfloor heating might be the solution for you. Additionally, you can install motion-sensored water faucets, smart-flush toilets, and spa-inspired shower amenities like premium showerheads that create the sensation that you’re showering the rain. You can find plenty of features and amenities that will upgrade your bathroom to add a measure of convenience.
