Though bathrooms need to be functional, they can also be a space for resting and relaxation. Fixtures, faucets and design features have turned the regular household bathroom into a modern and techno-savvy retreat. Contemporary Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Center in Calgary shares some of the latest trends you might like to know about:
Water saving solutions:
Efficiency is very important. Not only is it better for the planet, it will also reduce your water bill. Low-flow faucets save water while maintaining the desired flow rate. In addition, no-touch technology that is available in some faucets keeps things clean and helps avoid accidental wastage. Latest shower heads also allow users to control pressure and flow rates for an improved shower experience with better water saving.
By law, new low flow toilets must use less than 1.6 gallons of water per flush. Most toilets that were on the market prior to 1994 used at least 3.5 gallons of water per flush. That adds up to about 20 gallons of water per person per day. If you have a big family, just think of all the water (and money) going down the toilet. Contemporary Bath, Kitchen & Lighting has toilets that give you that water savings without compromising the power of the flush!
Tricked out tubs:
Bath tubs have acquired more unique designs and better features. Features like radiant heating provide a toasty and warm tub experience, tub shapes that are better for lounging and relaxing or tubs with massaging jets can transform regular bath time into a full spa experience! Visit the showroom at Contemporary Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Center to see what would work best in your bathroom design.
Showers available today have it all. Enjoy a spa like experience by controlling everything from water pressure to temperature. You can install a shower seat, jets that spray from the sides, a rain forest shower head and even built-in stereo speakers that allow you to listen to your favourite music in the shower.
Homeowners with limited space and mobility can now make their bathing experience great without the need for unattractive and bulky bathing fixtures. Minimalist shower chairs made of stainless and other materials give nice seating, and when not in use, you can fold them against the wall, making them great for very small showers. Walk-in tubs make bathing enjoyable and safe for people with restricted mobility, and sometimes may provide features designed to assist those with circulatory issues. If stability is a problem, you can install grab bars in specific areas.
If modern décor is not your thing, then you can choose to go retro in your bathroom design and decor. Add everything from the old days, like black and white tile, wall sinks in pure white porcelain etc. Get a simple mirrored medicine cabinet and use vintage light fixtures to highlight everything.
