A bathroom renovation can spark life and luxury into even the most tired of properties.
While they often come with a sizeable price tag, if done tastefully and timelessly a bathroom renovation can add significantly to the resale value of your property.
In 2016, the latest renovation trends are of course all about how to incorporate technology into the bathroom experience. While some of the more out-there technology trends may not last the test of time here are some of the latest bathroom tech trends that will make your renovation a winner.
Anti-fog bathroom mirrors
Yes, they exist. An anti-fog bath mirror is a great way to get rid of the inconvenience that is the hazy mirror after a shower. If you get ready in a rush in the morning and are sick of your mirror fogging over, and requiring a streak-inducing wipe, this could be the new bathroom technology for you.
Heated towel racks
Heated towel racks have been around for a while and have now reached quite affordable prices in the grand scheme of a bathroom renovation. Adding that extra touch of luxury will not only make cold winter mornings so much better but will no doubt impress future buyers.
If you’re going ahead and ripping out the whole bathroom anyway, installing heated flooring could be the key to the warm, cosy bathroom of your dreams. Powered by hot water that travels in tubes underneath your tiling, you’ll never suffer from cold feet after a shower again.
Rain shower head
A rain shower head has a large surface and sits overhead so that the effect of standing in a rain shower is created every time you jump in for a wash. While it sounds pretty magical, online reviews have said they often lack sufficient water pressure so it may be better suited to guest bathrooms and ensuites.
Lighting in the shower
Something that may be a little more practical when it comes to the shower space is adding lighting directly in the shower area. Most bathrooms suffer from dim lighting in the shower area as they rely on one central ceiling globe to do the job. Adding some ceiling lights directly over the shower space will help eliminate this problem and may appeal to future buyers.
