One of the most popular trends in bathrooms is creating luxurious, spa-like spaces that help people relax, unwind and decompress from their busy and stressful lives.
While many people embark on a bathroom renovation project to transform their space into a retreat-like environment, experts say a few changes can make the transition easy, effective and less expensive than a total renovation.
One of the easiest things to do is install a shower panel or other new shower head to make every shower a more relaxing and enjoyable experience. According to a recent report from CompaniesAndMarkets.com, the popularity of these products is rapidly expanding and is expected to reach $2.8 billion by 2017.
Even in total bathroom renovation projects, showers are often replacing bathtubs. Design experts say that many people enjoy taking showers rather than baths. Other factors that have contributed to the popularity of showers include the fact that they are quicker and more efficient than baths and that they use less water.
Installing a shower panel, rain or other new shower head can help instantly upgrade a shower and give the entire bathroom a more luxurious feel.
