Top Bathroom Remodeling Ideas In Tahoe

Are you considering remodeling your bathroom but need some inspiration? We can help. Check out 5 of the most popular bathroom remodeling requests here in Tahoe.

1. Smart & Compact Storage

Not only are bathrooms crammed full of toiletries visually unappealing, they’re also outdated. In modern homes, the trend is toward smart, minimalist storage that allows you to neatly stow things out of sight.

To achieve that look, most homeowners’ remodeled bathrooms include hidden cabinets, wall-hung linen towers, and storage ledges. These remodeled bathrooms also take advantage of vertical space, using cabinets that reach toward the ceiling. 

As a result, bathrooms look clean, uncluttered, and tranquil—making them ideally suited for leisurely lounging in a soaking tub.

2. High-Tech Upgrade

There’s seemingly no limit to the high-tech gadgets you can incorporate into a remodeled bathroom …

Think waterproof TVs, smart toilets, chromatherapy bathtubs, digital bidets, remote control showers, waterproof Bluetooth speakers, smart mirrors, and digital faucets. Whew! That’s a lot, but you get the picture.

What today’s busy Tahoe homeowners want are convenient, low-maintenance solutions. Fortunately, that’s easy to achieve with all the recent high-tech advancements that have been developed to enhance your bathroom bliss.

3. Wet Rooms

In a wet room, a shower isn’t enclosed, nor does it need to be “stepped into.” Instead, the room contains a shower head out in the open, typically behind a screen to prevent water from splashing all over.

Oftentimes, you’ll hear this style referred to as an open shower. Whatever you call it, it’s the hottest trend in high-end bathrooms.

For that reason, today’s Tahoe homeowners are increasingly requesting wet rooms. And because wet rooms require more space than traditional showers, they may skip adding a tub altogether.

However, if space permits, they’ll often put a soaking tub in their bathroom. A soaking tub is a freestanding Japanese-style bathtub that’s deeper than traditional bathtubs.

These two elements—wet rooms and soaking tubs—not only provide homeowners with the ultimate in comfort, but they also go a long way toward creating a visually stunning, luxe bathroom.

4. Spa-Like Environment

Utilitarian bathrooms are a thing of the past. Today, homeowners are looking to recreate the feel of a luxurious spa in their master bathroom—to create a  sanctuary that’s soothing and serene.

So, they’ll often design a bathroom with lots of spa-like indulgences, like a heated tile floor, a gorgeous soaking tub, a working fireplace, and a heated towel warming drawer. If they have the space, they might even include a sauna or steam shower.

The end result? Divine!

5. A Water Closet

A water closet is a toilet in a private space, separated from the rest of the bathroom by a door. Essentially, you can consider it a bathroom within a bathroom.

And as more and more homeowners turn their bathrooms into tranquil oases, water closets are becoming increasingly popular. There are several reasons for this.

For one thing, no matter how nice of a toilet you buy, it’s still a toilet. By keeping it in a separate room, you can improve the aesthetics of your bathroom.

Plus, water closets are great when you have to share a bathroom. Two people can access the room at the same time, while still maintaining their privacy.

Also, water closets are great for germaphobes. For those people who are queasy by the thought of a toilet being flushed anywhere near their toothbrush, a water closet is the perfect solution.

That’s why for many Tahoe homeowners, a water closet in the master bathroom is the ultimate luxury!
