Bathroom Trend Updates

Whether you want to go big or make a smaller change, there are lots of ways to update your bathroom. Kristin Reinitz from Minnesota Rusco shares some expert advice.

Right now, take an additional $500 off of any Full Bathroom Remodel or Kohler Walk-in-Tub. Just mention Twin Cities Live at time of purchase.

1. Heated Floors
  • Not as expensive today as it once was
  • One of the best values to improve your bathroom 
2. Unique Shower heads 
  • Add a little luxury to your bath without a major remodel expense
  • These can really dress up a shower or tub
  • Feels more like a spa! 
3. Classic Whites & Grays
  • Subway tile is always a classic, you can play with the finish of it – glossy or matte, as well as the size
  • Add interest with different accent pieces
  • Add pops of color to totally change the look
4. Vanities that look like Furniture 
  • Lots of our baby boomers are re-purposing pieces they already own from other rooms in their home. 
  • Storage is excessively important - Use a piece, like a chest of drawers that still gives you storage for those extra towels
  • Consider your lighting fixtures as well 
4. Walk-in Tubs or Shower Conversion 
  • 40% of remodeling dollars are coming from Baby Boomers- more than double from 5 years ago 
  • No more sitting there cold while you wait for it to fill – new technology allows you to stay warm while it fills with heated seats & back & shower wand 
  • Baby boomers are finding ways to stay in their homes longer – and these baths/showers can look like a major luxury
