Bring the Spa Home: Renovations to Turn Your Bathroom into a Haven of Rejuvenation

The evolution of the bathroom has been an interesting one. A typical home in the 1950s had only one small bathroom used by the entire family. Most homes in the 1970s featured a slightly larger “master” bath with a powder room. But things really started to change with the excess of the 1980s: The building of significantly larger homes lead to very large, quite flashy bathrooms with cavernous spaces full of missed opportunity.

With the arrival of the new century it seemed as though home buyers and builders figured it all out. The larger bathroom was great, but the space should be used more efficiently with both form and function taken into consideration. We begin and end our day in this room and it should be comfortable and organized.

“Bathrooms used to be viewed and utilized in a solely utilitarian manner; from a design standpoint, styles are definitely getting more contemporary and elegant”, says Maya Williams of Maya Williams Design. “A bathroom can be more than just the place you prepare yourself for the day. It’s also, arguably, the most important room in a home because it’s the place you energize your body and mind in the morning and settle your mind and body in the evening. It’s no wonder many of my clients request a home spa retreat remodel of their bathrooms.”

If you’re looking to seriously upgrade your bathroom, we have a few remodeling ideas that can completely transform your boring bathroom.

Make a Clear Change

The hottest trend for 2018 is the wet room: Showers and a free-standing tub in one easy to clean space surrounded by glass. If you don’t have space for a true wet room, you can get a hint of the look by enclosing the shower or shower and tub with a floating glass surround which looks as though it has no fixtures, or a metal frame enclosure with a grid format to give the appearance of French doors.

Choose Large, Natural Stone Tiles

Forget boring subway tile. It seems that larger stone tile is taking over because it makes cleaning so much easier. “I’ve been hearing the need for more easy-clean materials,” says Emily Hoefler, a kitchen and bath specialist at Renovations Group Inc. “A lot of people are shying away from tile because they don’t want to clean grout. If a homeowner does want to do tile, they’re opting for larger format tiles to reduce the amount of grout needed.”

She says we’ll soon see plenty of showers outfitted with large stone tiles in darker hues, even backsplashes as well.

Consider Dark Fixtures and Vessel Sinks

As an overall home trend, warm metals are hot this year. “One of my absolute favorite things becoming increasingly popular is warm metals,” Hoefler says. “Brass is back along with bronze, copper, and even satin nickel for a softer take on the trend. For warm metals, my suggestion is to go bold. Pairing these metals with contrasting colors such as black, dark blue, or even bright white is a great way to make them pop.”

Vessel sinks—those that sit on top of your vanity countertops—have been around for years, but in 2018 they are coming on strong in a variety of custom options. You’ll find them carved from natural stones, fired in artisan kilns, or made of hand-blown glass, and with theme decorations like koi fish and mermaids.

Incorporate Freestanding Furniture

If your bath is large enough, add a piece of freestanding furniture for storage. The rich wood of a mahogany French armoire, for instance, makes a great place for extra towels and bathrobes. Wood also adds earthy warmth to bathrooms and gives it even more of a spa feeling.

Embrace Technology

With every year, technology advances in almost every area of the home and the bathroom is no exception. Fiddling around with the shower controls to get your preferred pressure and temperature can be a thing of the past by investing in digital shower controls. Programmable systems let you set temperatures, adjust lighting, or even pre-set shower times to lower water consumption. Imagine using a remote control to turn on the shower from bed in the morning!

Some systems are so highly responsive they feature LED lights that change color as the temperature adjusts. The Crosswater Digital system, for example, flash red when the water is heating up, blue when cooling down, and white once it’s reached the right temperature—an especially handy feature when bathing children to avoid potential scalding.

In the end, the purpose of a home is not just to provide shelter; it’s also a personal sanctuary where you can relax and be yourself. A bathroom is even more personal in nature. Nothing beats a room that offers relaxation and luxury. With a beautiful custom bathroom, you get this and more: The colors you want, the materials you want, and the atmosphere you desire.

Time to Break Out: Move the “Heart” of the Home Outside

With Summer just a few weeks away, it’s understandable if you’re already dreaming of sipping sweet tea and enjoying a scrumptious meal outside. But, as you take a look at your run-down old deck or patio and unused backyard those dreams of enjoying an outdoor paradise seem out of reach. You’ve wanted to renovate and update the space for years, but you keep putting it off. Why? Don’t spend another summer stuck inside—make 2018 the year you create the outdoor space of your dreams.

Now more than ever, homeowners are migrating to their backyard to host and entertain family, friends, and neighbors. Research from Hoffman York on outdoor living trends found that approximately 30% of those with outdoor kitchens considered them their favorite room in (or, in this case, out of) the house.

The creation of outdoor living spaces a huge trend in homeownership this year, according to Realtor Magazine. Boring backyards are being transformed into “multifunctional entertainment areas” that include kitchens, bars and even wine rooms, the magazine reported. “Today’s yards are multifunctional and serve to entertain, offer a place for relaxation, and maximize lot square footage.”

Outside Living Made Easy

Outdoor kitchens in North Carolina continue to be popular in exterior living spaces, and every year, they’re becoming more elaborate and more suitable for year-round use. If you’re thinking about designing one this year or remodeling your existing outdoor kitchen, be sure to incorporate the following four elements for maximum utility and comfort.

Sturdy Cabinets

Cabinetry is the foundation upon which the rest of the cooking area is built. Kitchen cabinetry has greatly improved in the last few years and now offers plenty of storage with ample space for any number of kitchen appliances—ensuring your outdoor kitchen is just as functional and convenient as any indoor space. A variety of styles and materials are available for outdoor cabinets, so you’re sure to find something that matches your vision.

Quality Appliances

An outdoor kitchen is no longer limited to “the basics.” Now, along with your standard grill, sink, and refrigerator, many spaces now feature coffee and tea bars, ice makers, wine refrigerators, pizza ovens, dishwashers, and more. Whatever you can imagine can be made real.

Outdoor Entertainment

Outdoor living spaces offer more functionality now than ever—they’re beautiful, well-designed, and as comfortable as any room inside the home. But the patio is no longer a place to “just” cook. Entertainment is a big part of a backyard get-together so outdoor televisions have become a must. The TV can be hooked up to cable and outdoor audio systems which allows the ability to watch a movie or the game or simply listen to great music.

Heating Elements

After designing or remodeling the outdoor kitchen of your dreams, you don’t want to drastically limit the amount of time you’re able to use it. By installing a heating system, such as infrared heaters or a natural wood-burning fireplace, you can ensure your space is ready to entertain all year. Having an outdoor space that’s comfortable for you and your guests those extra months means you don’t sacrifice doing what you love just because the weather isn’t perfect.

Beyond the Outdoor Kitchen

“Outdoor living now means a lot more than a few lounge chairs scattered on a brick patio or rocking chairs lined up across your front porch,” says Zoe Gowen, Senior Home Editor for Southern Living. “People are embracing the idea of outdoor ‘rooms.’ They want the same amount of comfort and convenience from their porches and decks as they do their living rooms. Smart homeowners realize that a porch addition is a lower cost way to extend the square footage of your home. And, it’s also a lot more fun to be outside.”

Here are four design ideas Gowen says will be the big trends in 2018.

Swoon-Worthy Outdoor Furniture

The first step to creating a comfortable outdoor living space is furnishing it with comfortable and attractive furniture. “It’s really hard to enjoy yourself when you’re afraid that the weather-beaten wicker chair beneath you may crumble at any minute,” says Gowen. With advances in furniture and fabric technology, it’s possible to have fully upholstered furniture outside. It’s also nice to combine different kinds of furniture to get a collected look just like you would in your living room.

Fabulous Fabrics

A focus on high quality outdoor furniture has also boosted the selections and combinations of outdoor fabrics homeowners are using. Bold colors seem to be favored this year, but if you’d like to play it safe, consider navies, browns, or charcoals as neutrals, but lighten the palette with contrasting, patterned pillows. Just your indoor sofa, you’ll want to layer on two pairs of matching patterned pillows in complementary prints. “Stripes and geometrics are almost foolproof to blend,” says Gowen.

Don’t Overlook the Floors

Consider painting the floor to give your porch the polish of a room and to extend the life of your decking. “When painted floors get dirty, just paint them again,” Gowen says. Outdoor floor rugs also bring a space together. Flooring options have expanded and allow owners to use tile and a variety of other materials.

“Timber can fit into any design aesthetic and can be left to weather and silver or kept vibrant and fresh depending on taste and available time for maintenance,” says Matt Leacy of Landart Landscapes. He says homeowners can go minimalist or textured when it comes to flooring. He sees more “raw” and finished concrete being used as well.

Cooling Ceiling Fans

Ceiling fans are available in a variety of styles from contemporary to tropical and more to match your home’s exterior. When choosing an outdoor fan, you have two options: Damp location versus wet location. Damp location fans are for covered outdoor areas such as a porch or patio where it will be protected from direct contact with rain. Wet-rated designs are best for an open gazebo or cabana pool area.

As you can see, your backyard can be more than just empty space—it can be part of your home. With a little imagination and design help from Pinehurst Homes it can be transformed into a beautiful place where you’ll enjoy family gatherings, parties with friends, or a relaxing retreat from everyday stress. Even the simplest addition can make a world of difference in improving your outdoor living space.

Pinehurst Homes can create an outdoor space to accommodate all of your entertainment needs. Our team is available to assist you with personalizing your outdoor kitchen space from the cabinets to the appliances you would like to include. We’ll work with you to create a unique kitchen and outdoor living space that fits your style integrates seamlessly into home.
