The Most Popular Features of a Dream Bath

Selecting just the right fixtures and elements for your new dream bath does not have to be taxing, time consuming and stressful.  If you search for a lavatory on Houzz.com, you receive a selection of almost 15,000 options.  How can you possibly select the one that is best suited for your new bath?  That’s where a showroom and professional designer can be a great asset.  Most homeowners in Alaska renovate a primary bath maybe once in their lifetime.  Our showroom designs and specifies new primary baths almost daily. It’s what we do, and we look forward to sharing our experience, knowledge and expertise with you and your fellow Alaska homeowners.

Replacing vanities in the primary bath is one of the most popular improvements requested by homeowners in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Juneau, and beyond. We are not surprised because vanities are often the focal point of a new dream primary bath.  Most homeowners in Alaska select a custom or semi-custom vanity for their primary bath because those options provide the most flexibility to meet specific space requirements.  Popular vanity features Alaska homeowners gravitate to are soft close drawers and doors, integrated electrical outlets and drawer organizers.  Styles that are requested most often include Shaker and flat panel cabinet fronts.

For sinks in the primary bath, the top preferences are undermounted double sinks (space permitting).  Almost every primary bath project in Anchorage, Fairbanks, and Juneau features an update to the shower with ceramic or porcelain tile being most popular for walls and floors, followed by marble and stone.

Free-standing, flat bottom bathtubs are the baths of choice in our region, typically specified in more than half of our projects.  

The ability to create an in-home spa where family members can spend a few minutes all to themselves —  devoid of texts, tweets, emails and little feet — is a primary driver of the decision to renovate a primary bath.  Bathroom technology has more than met the demand for a personal refuge with shower and tub systems that offer message, muscle, light and aroma therapies and music capabilities. Creating an in-home spa where you can wash away the stresses of the day is priceless.

What are the most popular features of primary baths among Alaska homeowners that will meet your dreams and desires?  Give us a call at (907) 561-9299 or make an appointment to visit our showroom at 122 W. 92nd Avenue in Anchorage and let us show you how you can create a place where you can rest, relax, rejunvinate and take a few minutes every day just for yourself.
