Seven Updates You Can Make in 2021

You may not spend hours on end in the bathroom like the living room or your kitchen, but that doesn’t mean you don’t want this room to be everything it can be. A bathroom should be aesthetically pleasing, inviting, but most of all, easy to clean. This is a room that can get very dirty in a short amount of time, so it’s important to keep that in mind when choosing your bathroom upgrades. Here are seven upgrades you can make in 2021 that are slick, stylish, and easy to maintain.

Shower Upgrade

A surefire way to enhance the look of any bathroom is by updating your shower, and there’s so many customization options these days that the possibilities are quite literally endless. At NextGen Remodeling in Kansas City, we offer some of the widest selection of shower surrounds, pans, and walk-ins so that you can achieve the exact look you’ve always wanted. We can even add built-in seating and niche shelving to house all those shampoo and conditioner bottles. Finally, no shower revamp project would be complete without new faucets and inlets.

Luxury Bathtubs

If you can’t have a sauna in your home, then an oversized luxury bathtub is going to be the next best thing. More and more, people are looking for ways to ease their stress that are easily accessible in their own homes, and the luxury bathtub has become the go-to option. NextGen Remodeling can take your comfort to a whole new level with a tub that is worthy of any spa, and we can even include features like jets and waterfall faucets.

Large Tiling and New Paint

New paint and tiling can make all the difference between an ordinary and extraordinary bathroom. Although neutral colors are safe, we’re seeing plenty of customers that are opting for brighter, more vibrant colors that really pop. If it’s been a while since the walls have gotten some TLC, then you’ll definitely want to go with a paint that’s specifically designed to resist mildew and moisture, such as PPG UltraLast.

Oversized large tiles are also popular right now, shifting away from the standard small mosaic patterns. Not only are large tiles a statement piece, they’re also easier to clean because there’s more surface area and less grout to worry about.

Modernized Toilet

Out of all the places in the home people sit in the home, the toilet can be easily overlooked…but not during a bathroom remodel. If you haven’t been paying attention to the many advancements that toilets have made in the past couple decades (don’t worry, we have), then you’re missing out on things like automatic lifting lids, new designs, bidet features, and heated seats. Modern toilets are more eco-friendly and offer a better bathroom experience.

Customized Cabinets & Vanities

One of the top requests from our customers is that they want to get more out of their bathroom vanity area. That means bigger mirrors, more storage, and an aesthetic that lines up with a look and feel that fits their personal style. Custom cabinets and vanities are a fantastic way to update the look of your bathroom. Some current favorites right now are floating vanities and mirrors with backlighting, which have a more modern feel.

The beauty of working with the team over at NextGen Remodeling in Kansas City is that we can get as creative with the project as you want, and we use only the highest quality materials to ensure your new vanity area can hold up against moisture created by the shower. We can also increase the overall storage space of your cabinets when we update them.

Quartz Countertops

Perhaps the ultimate upgrade to any bathroom, quartz countertops are one of the hardest natural materials on the planet, which makes them able to withstand anything from scratches to stains from spilled cosmetic products. Quartz is also non-porous, meaning that there aren’t any little holes or divots for bacteria to build in. It’s an extremely easy material to clean and maintain, which is probably why quartz is consistently at the top of the list when it comes to most-used countertop materials by home builders and contractors.

Heated Flooring

Is there anything more uninviting than stepping onto an ice-cold bathroom floor first thing in the morning? If you’re sick of getting full-body chills to start your day, heated flooring is definitely the way to go. With radiant floor heating, you can finally ditch all those bacteria-filled floor mats and carpet squares knowing cozy warm tiling await your bare feet. While you’re at it, you might as well upgrade your floor tiling as well. Porcelain and ceramic tiling remain top-sellers in the industry due to their long-lasting durability and resistance to damage that can be caused by common bathroom moisture.
