3 Hot Trends for Bathroom Remodeling in 2012

When looking to remodel your home, your bathrooms are probably on the top of your list of what needs updating. House Logic published a great article on the hot trends of bathroom remodeling in 2012, and we want to share them with you.

1. Conservation Rules

There are new regulations that revolve around water usage, and you will want to comply with this when remodeling your bathroom.  When shopping for a new toilet, look for one with a lower flush-per-gallon rating.

Next, look for low-flow shower heads and faucets. You will want to look for the WaterSense label, which was launched in 2006 by the Environmental Protection Agency in order to promote water conservation. This is equivalent to the Energy Star rating many appliances and electronics now have. Don’t get scared when you hear low-flow; by using Venturi principals, these shower heads deliver strong water pressure, maybe even stronger than what you currently have. This works by adding air instead of water to the mix, creating strong water pressure that is something everyone wants in their shower.

#2 Technology Advances

Speaking of showers, you can now get a programmable shower that allows you to digital set your ideal shower. Settings include water temperature, volume, and even massage settings. These settings can make your every day shower feel like you’ve stepped into a spa.

A bathroom trend just years ago was to install a wall-mounted flat screen television in your bathroom. Today, the trend is a television screen integrated into your bathroom mirror.

#3 Aging Demographics Emphasize Safety

Many slip and fall accidents take place in the bathroom, so pay attention to what could cause these, and prevent them by making your bathroom safe. Include low-profile linear drains instead of the typical round drain that must have a sloped floor to drain properly.

Now that you know what kind of drain to look for, make sure your flooring is also safe by choosing something that is slip-resistant and also low-maintenance.  Our showroom (LINK) has a great selection of flooring, so it should be easy to find one that meets all of your needs.

Lastly, make sure your tub is accessible. There are now bathtubs that have rising panels for an easier entry and exit.

Include House Logic’s 3 hot trends in your bathroom remodel and your bathroom may just become your new favorite room.

Some great tips for shower remodel.


Brad Thomas May 8, 2012 at 4:27 pm

I agree with most of the article, it's logical to utilize efficient lighting, low flow toilets and to insulate the walls and ceiling how ever, some of the new technological advances are expensive and not necessary.

A tempering valve (thermostatic valve) is part of the building code in some areas along the eastern seaboard but is largely (in my opinion) a waste. A tempering valve, will run you an extra $150 to $200 if it is part of the supply lines and expect to pay twice that amount or even more for a tempering valve that is built into the faucet.

Sure, sometimes you have no choice because some lobbyist for the industry made their use mandatory but otherwise, shelling out several hundred dollars for keeping the water temperature within 1 degree is a bit extreme.

The argument of "toddlers burning themselves in the shower" doesn't "hold any water" with me- who is letting their toddler bath alone?

Just my opinion

A Greek chorus of historical figures, including Leonardo da

Vinci and 19th-century politician Giuseppe Garibaldi, add rueful comment on the characters and their troubles while arguing

about Italy’s distressing current state of affairs.

with this special “Twiathlon” ticket, you are sure to be one of

the first to see this epic saga continue unfolding. This film continues a trend in fashionable CSI-CIA-crime composing

deficiencies in knowledge of the fundamental concepts of know-how and that i guess it should not hassle lots of individuals even so for me your entire plot appeared instead forced.


Web hosting companies July 22, 2014 at 10:53 pm

A VPS performs and executes specifically like a
stand-alone server; Your VPS may be rebooted independently and
have root access, users, IP addresses, memory space, processes, recordsdata, applications, method libraries and configuration recordsdata.
It would save you time and also help you find the best web host
for your web business. But blogs are about some facts, like tourism and
industry or fashion or education, people can write
blog themselves and share their opinion, whereas
forum hosting is bit larger concept than blog hosting because
it does include chat rooms and discussions.
