See our post: Our easy peasy process
We have seen our share of trends come and go since we started remodeling bathrooms. The shiny tiles of the ’90s and have given way to matte and textured tiles in every color and shape.
The bright colors of those early years have given way to the greys and neutrals so popular today.
Curbless, and zero threshold showers have become the look of the future. With many homes today opting out altogether from having a bathtub at all.
What may explain these changes is the advancing age of many Oregonians.
A recent Census report showed that in Oregon, the number of people 65 years and older grew by 18 percent from July 2010 and July 2014.
That’s a big jump.
United States as a whole only saw an increase of 14.2 percent. What’s one possible explanation for this? Oregon has received some national attention as a retirement destination.
For Salem, this means a lot of people all in the same boat – they’re getting older. Thousand’s are receiving their AARP invitations. They’re all trying to figure out how to age well, and for many, how to age in place.

Aging in place here in Oregon
Aging in place means staying at home rather than going into a nursing home. To do that means modifying our homes – wider hallways, a modified kitchen layout, a roll in shower.
Enter the curbless shower – a shower where there is no threshold to step over. Everything is thought out – even a place to sit while your showering if you get tired.
While this is a great idea since it is so easy to use for those with infirmities, it also looks gorgeous. We are not just talking about the old ADA showers you might be thinking about but a sleek, modern, spa-like shower.
Considering a tub to tile conversion? A zero threshold shower? Here is a mind-blowing fact. For the first time ever, it may increase your property value to switch a bath to a shower.
Real estate agents recommend having at least one bath in your home. But it doesn’t even need to be in the master anymore. People aren’t taking as many baths anymore.
See if your bathroom could become a modern, spacious, new, spa-like shower.
