In the past, bathrooms were places where we would simply get in and out as quickly as possible - they were purely functional spaces. However, in recent years, there has been a shift and bathrooms are now being designed as relaxation spaces. This change in design is largely influenced by the increased number of people working from home.
The average person now spends time working from home in a post COVID-19 world, and this is likely to increase in the future. With more time spent at home, people are looking for ways to make their homes more comfortable and inviting. One way to do this is by creating a relaxing bathroom space.
Bathrooms are now being designed with relaxation in mind. Features such as bathtubs, rain showers, and saunas are becoming more common in new homes. And it's not just luxury homes that are doing this - even renovations and apartments are starting to include some of these features.
The reason for this change is that bathrooms are no longer just places to get clean - they're now seen as an extension of the living space. This means that people are spending more time in them and want to make them into comfortable places where they can unwind after a long day. With the spa industry booming, more people are opting for a space in their own home where they can relax and be comfortable.
If you're thinking of renovating your bathroom, keep in mind that there is a trend to create a space where you can relax and unwind. This means including features such as bathtubs, showers, and saunas. By doing this, you'll be able to create a bathroom that you'll actually enjoy spending time in.
