Spa Bathrooms Calgary | Bathroom renovations have always been a popular choice for home renovations. They have a strong history of providing a good return on investment, they don’t take as long to complete as other renovations, they are not as large of an investment as some other renovation types, and the temporary inconvenience of the construction is confined to a fairly small area of the house. In other words, there is a lot of bang for the buck with minimal disruption to home life. So if bathroom renovations have always been a solid choice, what is making it such a trending renovation now?
SPA BATHROOMS CALGARY | TRENDS IN ENSUITE BATHROOM RENOVATIONS
People are choosing to invest in bathroom renovations, specifically ensuites, more than ever before. The most interesting recent trends involve what people are choosing to eliminate from their ensuite bath renovations as much as what they are including. Bye-bye bathtubs and hello gorgeous custom showers. What of that workhorse of the traditional bathroom? Why is the bathtub no longer on the wish list for many of us? It isn’t that the tub is no longer desirable; it just may not make the cut for the final list of priorities. Large luxurious showers built for two, with benches, multiple fixtures, steam units and heated floors are more and more at the top of the wish list for spa elements in bathroom renovations now. Include a tub if space and budget permits but often it is no longer the center piece for bathroom renovations.
THE END OF THE ENSUITE BATHTUB?
It’s estimated about 90% of people use their ensuite tub less than three times a year; 70% never use it at all, but the shower gets used every day. We have always been told that a tub is essential for resale, but are now realizing what is essential for resale is quality and function. Bath renovations are changing. Traditional layouts and ideas of what a bathroom is supposed to be no longer apply and people are doing what works best for them – not what works best for someone else.
