It’s time. Those outdated showers, bathtubs, cabinets, and tiles have got to go.
The bathroom is one of the most highly used rooms in your home so it should reflect your personal style and personality while maintaining its function at the same time. The opportunity to create the bathroom of your dreams is right at your fingertips. Whether you prefer a cool modern design or a classic cozy feel, playing with different layouts, fixtures, and hardware allows you to create the look you want. Browse through some modern ideas to transform your bathroom into a relaxing retreat.
Take advantage of what you already have
Natural light is one of the easiest ways to transform your bathroom. Using existing light and creating a window that allows as little or as much light in as you want is an easy way for the homeowner to use the things nature provides us with, while at the same time creating a space that might appear larger than it really is.
His and Hers Vanity Area
His and hers vanity areas let the couple share the space while still allowing them their own storage area. These layouts are important in modern bathrooms because they allow the couple to feel like this shared space is their own. Symmetrical designs open the master bath up to a fresh, clean look.
The Fancy Shower
Fancy showers are becoming the main focus of the bathroom. With options for a walk-in shower or open shower areas, homeowners have the opportunity to create the feel they want. Different textiles, glass, and fixtures allow for a number of mix and match ideas to create a look that reflects your personal style. Multiple shower heads and steam fixtures create a true spa-like experience in the comfort of your own home.
But I’m not ready to give up my bathtub!
If you like the idea of a large open shower, but aren’t quite ready to give up your relaxing bath time, create a space with both. Make the tub the focal point of the room, or use it to separate vanity areas.
Mirror Mirror on the Wall
Adding a mirror to your bathroom will open up the space while serving a purpose at the same time. Mirrors create the illusion that the area is bigger than it actually is. Add a large mirror above the vanity area for an easy way to add some depth to your bathroom.
Got Cold Feet?
Step out of your shower and onto your new heated floor. Heated tile is a feature that is becoming more and more common in the modern bathroom. Homeowners now have the opportunity to make stepping out of the shower on those cold winter months a little bit easier.
Still got cold feet?
Fireplaces in the bathroom are not as uncommon as you might think. People can add warmth to their bathrooms through one of the oldest methods around. A fireplace adds comfort and warmth and creates a cozy environment that almost makes you forget your worries at the door.
Attention to detail
The details of the fixtures, colors, and appliances you use are probably the most important to think of when looking at the bigger picture. Use blue mosaic tile for a cool Mediterranean look or a bright color on the walls to add contrast to your space. Choosing which tile, color, hardware, and fixtures you use is a fun way to show off your personal style and sophistication.
