Trends in Bathroom Renovations
- As in the kitchen, touchless faucets and, specifically for bathrooms, touchless toilet fixtures are becoming more commonplace in new and renovated homes.
- Bathtubs are becoming less popular as many homeowners opt for a larger and more luxurious shower space.
- Radiant floor heating is being installed in more bathrooms. This type of comfort system heats the floor, allowing heat to radiate upward. Both efficiency and comfort levels are improved.
