5 Most Popular Bathroom Updates (2014)

Bathroom remodels are popular in and of themselves, but favor among specific projects waxes and wanes as trends shift – and 2014 is no different than any other year in that regard.

Of course, there are many factors that influence these trends over time, including budgets, tastes and influences stemming from location and popular culture. Vintage clawfoot tubs may be looking good in New York, for example, but a tight budget and chance review of glass tile on This Old House may have you thinking differently in Arizona.

So, given all these variables and with market tastes thrown in to boot, what floats to the top? Let’s see:

1. Steam

The popularity of steam showers and steam rooms have been on the rise for some time now. New technology has made them more affordable to install and provides several options for various budgets. You may decide to install a self-contained steam shower or enclosure, or opt for a steam generator that can be integrated into your current bathroom design.

2. Stone Accents

Wall-to-wall marble tile may not be feasible, but many people are finding ways to incorporate more luxurious building materials into their bathroom designs. A marble or granite vanity, for example, can add a lot of sophistication for a fraction of the price of marble tile.

3. Hardware / Fixtures

Hardware and fixtures are always a popular choice because they’re affordable, easy to install and can make a huge difference in the look and function of your bathroom. New pulls, knobs, grab bars, towel bars and faucets can be matched or play off one another to great effect in a simple bathroom hardware update.

4. Bathroom Chandeliers

Designer lighting is very popular, but many people are taking it to a new level with a mini-chandelier in the bathroom. Vintage and shabby chic is still a draw, but a classic or contemporary look in a smaller chandelier (or even a pair) can also wow in the space.

5. Low-Flow Toilets

Environmentalism is trending as a design element and when it pairs naturally with money-saving activities like conserving water it becomes a no-brainer. Low-flow (or dual-flush) toilets are a popular avenue for people who want to invest in a bathroom update that will pay for itself over time.

ATGStores.com hopes this list gives you some ideas about how you can make the most out of your next bathroom remodel.

Using a semi-flush mount for a mini-chandelier like this one from Feiss can make a stunning statement while leaving you with plenty of headroom. 

This elegant single vanity from Bosconi features a top crafted in Dark Emperador marble and is finished in an antique red stain.
