2018 Bathroom Trends – Part Two

 

If you want to add some texture and dimension to your bathroom, you’re going to love 2018. Grab a pen and paper or just bookmark this link, because 2018 just delivered all kinds of options for your bathroom design that will make this room your favorite.

Concrete and Marble. For so many years, granite has been king. But 2018 is ringing in the new year with new surface options that may be ending granite’s reign. Concrete has been moving into kitchen designs for several years, and now it’s making a successful debut in bathrooms. From walls to sinks to tubs, it’s an interesting option that brings depth and texture. And while it’s no secret marble has and always will be a classic choice, 2018 ushers in a new era for this well-loved material. Be prepared to find thick, weighty marble slabs used as entire bathroom walls and in showers, taking this well-loved material in an exciting new direction.

Metal Framed Showers. Industrial elements have been and will continue to be an influence in home design. And this year, it’s bringing a new flair to trendy bathrooms with metal framed showers. The metal frames overlaying the shower glass replicate the window pane illusion that is not only attractive but also brings texture and depth.

Hand Carved Stone Sinks. Who doesn’t love a vessel sink? This year, designers are taking it up a notch with hand-carved stone vessel sinks that are practical, yet make a powerful statement. With a broad spectrum of different types of stone, finding a style that speaks to you will be a cinch. Have fun with this one.

Tile … Pattern, Color, Texture. While tiles have had a place in American bathrooms for years, 2018’s patterns, colors and textures, take this design element to a new level. This year, you’ll begin seeing tile patterns full of intrigue, bright colors and textures galore.

Help for Your Holiday Water Bill

With Thanksgiving less than a week away, the holiday countdown has begun. And like many families, you may be hosting several friends or family members over the next several weeks. While your preparation list likely includes gifts, food and cleaning, have you prepared to absorb the additional water expense that comes with extended house guests?

If your answer is “no”, you’re not alone. With all the activities happening at this time of year, homeowners rarely think about ways to save money on utility bills – until they receive them in the mail or their inbox in January. The fact is that extra guests mean an extra demand on your plumbing system and in your hot water needs, resulting in a greater impact on your wallet

To help you get through this holiday without a whopper of a water bill, here are just a few things you can do right now to save you money.

If you don’t have them already, you may want to consider installing low-flow plumbing fixtures. They can be a great asset in slowing down the water flow in your home. These nifty fixtures use a special high pressure technique that creates a flow that is equal to or greater than the flow on traditional flow faucets but using less water. You can find low-flow shower heads, toilets and faucets at your local hardware store.

Did you know you can buy a blanket for your water heater? To keep your water heater insulated and your water warm longer, stop by your local home improvement store and ask for an insulated blanket for your water heater. These are made especially for your water heater and can make sure all of your guests have a warm shower in addition to saving you money this holiday season.

With more guests comes more laundry. When doing laundry, especially guests’ towels and sheets, make sure you have a full load and that your water level matches the size of your load.
