Let’s face it, Covid has changed the way we live and work at home. Virtual meetings, Zoom call holidays, and stay-at-home vacations are just a few of the changes we have adapted to this past year. So if we have to stay at home because of Covid, let’s make it count, especially in the shower enclosure space. Homeowners typically choose to remodel kitchens and master bathrooms, but secondary bathrooms are also an important aspect to the style and feel of your home.
Bathroom spaces need to be both functional and aesthetic. The 2020 Houzz Trends Study found that half of remodeled master bathrooms do not have a tub and 78% of the homeowners who remove an existing tub do so to enlarge their shower enclosure space. Secondary bathrooms are now becoming personal spas or spaces styled and customized for comfort and beauty.
Appreciating the beauty of one’s shower space is becoming increasingly more important to homeowners, especially spending more time at home. Consumers are picking out the nicer tile, putting in niches and taking the time to slow down and appreciate the beauty of their shower space. Rainfall shower heads and surround shower installations give homeowners gentle, even water dispersion to soothe muscular aches and pains. Teak bath seats and shelves make the space natural and relaxing.
As key markets of Baby Boomers and Gen Xers age, the aging-in-place movements have led to customers choosing to outfit their homes to meet their mobility needs. Shower enclosures fit the need, with no curb shower floors that make stepping in and out of the shower much easier. Innovations in grab bar design helps make them less institutional looking and more design friendly with nice finishes.
Homeowners are spending more time at home, working from home, and relaxing at home. Having a functional, beautiful, and easy to maintain shower enclosure space is certainly something to enjoy!
