Bathrooms can function as a practical place for you to get ready for the day and a sanctuary where you can unwind after a long day. With a few changes or upgrades, you can enhance the look and ambiance of these rooms. Whether you plan on making changes to a powder room or a spacious master bathroom, keep the latest trends in mind. 

Bold Powder Room Walls

Powder rooms might not offer the same amount of space as regular bathrooms, but the right decor can dramatically improve their appearance. One of the latest trends this year for powder rooms is sprucing them up with darker paint colors on a backsplash or wallpaper that has an eye-catching, decorative design. Using one of these options for your powder room can give it a bold yet elegant new look. 

Travertine Floors

Marble floors have been the standard choice for luxury bathrooms in recent years, but this is changing with the latest trends. Travertine is taking over as the favored material for bathroom floors due to its rich tones and durability. These floors come in a wide range of styles, cuts and designs in hues that can add warmth to your rooms. 

Freestanding, Deep Tubs

Having the right tub can make baths or a relaxing soak more comfortable. This year’s trends include freestanding, deep tubs that offer plenty of room for soaking or bathing while also giving bathrooms a more upscale look. These tubs are available in numerous shapes and styles. Whether you prefer a modern, streamlined rectangular shape or a softer rounded shape, you’ll find a number of options to consider. Tub trends for 2020 also include black, freestanding tubs that act as a focal point in bathrooms that are mainly white or neutral in color. 

Elaborate Lighting

Sconces and other traditional types of bathroom lighting can add a decorative touch to bathrooms, but the trend for this year is chandeliers. These hanging light fixtures add luxury and a striking appearance to bathrooms while also providing plenty of lighting. Chandeliers come in a variety of sizes and designs, so you can find the ideal type that enhances your bathroom’s look. 

Waterfall Showers

Waterfall showers offer a way to add visual appeal to your bathroom shower while also making it feel more like a spa. You can pair these features with light, natural stone accents or white lighting to create a more natural-looking waterfall in your shower.

If you like the outdoors, spending time on the terrace or balcony at your home is a great way to enjoy the fresh air and spend time with family and friends. But sometimes windy weather or lack of privacy can create a challenge. Consider installing a windbreak to make your outdoor space more comfortable. Depending on your style, budget, and space requirements, you’ll find a wide variety of available options. Here are some practical ideas you can employ.

Types of Windbreaks

Glass Railing: Glass railings are a great option if you do not want to block the view from your outdoor space. Replacing traditional railings with glass or acrylic panels will add protection against the elements as well as sleek, modern curb appeal to your property.

Retractable windbreak: A retractable windbreak is a good solution if you do not want to add a permanent wall or railing to your space. A retractable windbreak functions like a horizontal window shade allowing for easy storage when it is not in use. They are available in polyester, textile fibers or plastic. Premium options are waterproof and treated to resist UV rays.

Trellis with climbing plants: Consider creating a windbreak with climbing vines and plants for a more natural aesthetic. First, install a trellis or pergola structure to support the plants. If your working at ground level, plant your climbing vines directly in the ground otherwise line planters along the edge of the balcony.

Bamboo shades: Rolled bamboo shades are a great option if you have a covered balcony with open sides. Bamboo shades are a windbreak you can open and close as needed. They are easy to install and come in a wide variety of styles and dimensions.

Finding the perfect windbreak for your home requires planning and budget considerations. If you need to hire a contractor to help with your project, ask your real estate agent for local recommendations.

When you’re creating a landscaping plan for your home it is essential to design around the local climate and weather patterns. When you opt for plants that thrive in your area, you know they are well equipt to handle the seasonal changes specific to your location. This adaptation makes them easier to care for and less dependent on extra watering. It is especially important to integrate this kind of landscaping when there is some level of drought occurring where you live. 

What to Keep

Drought tolerant landscaping is a beautiful way to save on water usage. The good news is that creating a more drought-tolerant yard doesn't necessarily mean removing all of the plantings you currently have. 

Large trees are a great asset, plan on keeping those. Well placed trees provide shade for your home and garden which can be an energy saver all year long. Shade trees also allow a diverse variety of plants to grow comfortably and provides nesting habitat for birds and other native wildlife. 

A drought-tolerant landscape typically includes little to no grass. Grass requires regular watering to keep it green and thriving. Lawn watering can be expensive and seasonally limited by the town or city where you reside. Opting to replace even a section of your lawn with a rock garden or wildflowers is guaranteed to reduce your water bill.

What to Add

Focus on plants local to your area. These plants have evolved to handle the local climate and will have the best chance of growing with little to no input from you. In general, using rocks or wood pellets instead of grass for ground covering will serve you well. Try lava rock to cut down on erosion and help the soil retain more water. Install ground cloth under the rock bed or add mulch to curb weed growth and protect your native plants from insects. For an added boost for your plantings, add compost to your soil before the mulch.

Irrigation

An irrigation system could be a helpful addition to your landscape because it allows you to control where and how much you’re watering. If you have an irrigation system in place be sure to have it serviced regularly, especially if you have made changes to the plantings or green areas in your yard. 

If you’re considering installing a new system, an efficient option is a grey-water system. Grey-water irrigation allows for the reuse of water from your in-home sinks, washing machines, showers, and bathtubs to water your plants.

The right landscaping can boost your curb appeal and property value to the next level. Ask your real estate agent for their advice and professional landscaper recommendations in your area.
