Purely utilitarian bathrooms are a thing of the past. Today’s trend of bathroom renovations can add space, style, and comfort to what was once a small, cramped room, turning a bath into a spa-like retreat.

Bath renovations include expanding the size of the rooms or rearranging the fixtures to make the most of the floor plan. Pushing out walls and borrowing space from low-traffic areas of the home can add enough square footage to not only give you your own personal spa but to instantly increase your home’s value.

Decorative fixtures transform the space into a more comfortable and stylish area. Above-the-counter sinks, built-in-cabinetry, high-end tile choices, and contemporary color palettes lend an air of luxury. Bathroom designs today also include more color by way of hand-painted sinks and dual wall paint color schemes.
