Bathrooms can quickly start to look tired and dated, and perhaps even dirty, which is a shame because your bathroom is a key part of your home. It’s the room you want to look clean and fresh. Modernizing your bathroom can be a great way to make your home more relaxing, wake you up in the morning, and generally improve your love of your home.
If you are planning on remodeling your bathroom and working with electrics it’s incredibly important that you are careful. Find a local electrician who will be able to help you do any work safely.
Here’s a look at some great ideas on how to modernize your bathroom, from huge changes to more subtle details.
Stand-alone baths were once the norm. But in recent years fitted baths have become much more common as they are more convenient and take up much less space. However, large stand-alone bath tubs are making a comeback. They look stylish and luxurious and easily help to create the perfect relaxing bathroom.
When a bathroom is dated, faucets can often be the first things people notice. Faucets have fashions just like everything else, so check out some modern styles before you make a choice. Chrome always looks great but rose gold and copper are hugely fashionable at the moment and can make your bathroom unique and exciting.
Sinks are another thing that can easily become tired and dated. Double sinks look great and can help make your bathroom more practical so if you’ve got the space, go for it. Alternately, one large sink can look really cool.
Tiles are often boring and white. Add some fun styles for a truly modern look. You can get tiles in a huge range of different shapes, sizes, and styles. A great idea is to go for an artistic print, such as William Morris tiles. If you can’t afford a large display, just add a few surrounded by plainer, cheaper tiles.
If you’ve got a smaller bathroom, storage might be a problem. But, nothing is less relaxing than clutter, which also makes the room look even smaller. Modern storage offers you some great options. Some of the best storage solutions for a bathroom include:
- A small, skinny shelf at the side of your toilet
- A neat and organized cabinet
- Shelving or pots with suction cups to secure them to your tiles
- Over the door hangers or shelves
Under floor heating is fantastic in the bathroom. Nothing feels better than stepping out of the bath or shower onto a nice warm floor. Tiles can look great and give your bathroom a home spa feel but if you fancy something a little different, light wood floors can lend your bathroom a very modern look.
Blues are always a great color choice when it comes to the bathroom. They match the water theme, are relaxing, and can help wake you up in the morning. White is also very modern in any room. But, if you want to stand out from the crowd try some brighter colors such as yellow or green.
Whatever your budget, you will be able to make at least a few small changes to modernize your bathroom and highlight its best features.
