According to the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA), showers are becoming far more popular than tubs. So accordingly, high-tech spa-like body sprays, water jets and showerheads are becoming more commonplace.
Fully enclosed steam showers with multiple showerheads are a luxury that is becoming more conventional in new homes and remodeled master bathrooms. It’s nice to have a place to sit and enjoy your Zen-like walk-in shower, thus built-in and portable benches are an extra-added luxury that doesn’t have to break the budget.
No-threshold showers along with comfort-height toilets, vanities and side-mount faucets are gaining in popularity for very practical reasons. Curbless showers are easier to clean, they make your bathroom look bigger, and they help homeowners to age in place.
Many homeowners are tearing out built-in bathtubs to create a combination bathtub/shower wet room. Ease of accessibility or being ADA-compliant can increase a home’s resale value because you’re offering potential buyers more options, plus the design aesthetic can look really cool.
