A Beautiful Bathroom is a Click Away
We all have dreams of a beautiful new bathroom. There are plenty of good reasons to invest in one, too. It doesn’t just enhance your quality of life, it also enhances the value of your home. Bathrooms sell homes, and even if you’re not thinking of selling in the immediate future, your new bathroom will continue to look fabulous for a long time to come. So think about a bathroom remodel.
Creating a beautiful and functional space is all about planning, and bringing in an experienced professional is the best way to do it. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have some ideas in your pocket, though. Here are some creative ways to bring new life to an old bathroom.
Build Around a Statement Piece
Whether you love to browse antique malls or you have a family heirloom, a single piece can build a bathroom. It can provide you with the essential angles, colors and style that make up the room, dictating the style of the entire space.
Feature the Floor
The floor can make a big statement in a relatively small room, and many new bathrooms rely on the floor to make the statement. It adds style, but it doesn’t overwhelm the space. Even in large bathrooms, the floor can improve the elegance.
Bring Life to the Room
Indoor plants can add sophistication and beauty to any bathroom. There’s plenty of humidity, so a vertical, tropical layout can truly thrive in the space. It’s vivid, it’s impressive and it’s truly unique.
Open it Up
If the bathroom in your master suite is cramped and crowded, why not open things up? Sliding doors can open or close for privacy, and it’s a great way to enjoy the beautiful basins and vanities that would otherwise stay hidden away.
There’s simply nothing like the serenity of the nature vibe. It’s calming, it’s peaceful and above all – it’s beautiful. Earthy materials like wood and stone are easily matched and easily arranged.
Set Your Tub Free
Freestanding tubs are still the striking trend in modern bathroom design. Choosing your tub valves and spout is not so much a matter of beauty as it is a matter of function. If you plan to have them mounted on the tub, there has to be a proper space on it designated for that. On the other hand, if they’re going to stay on the deck, spout needs to be long enough to reach over and inside the tub (especially arched ones). Always get high volume valves for large tubs or they take to long to fill.
Freestanding tub is not just an aesthetic improvement – it symbolizes the compartmentalization of space. Your downtime, realized.
Complementing geometric design with more geometric design is math that you can do with your eyes, and it goes beyond just similarly-shaped tiles. Match an angular basin with a similarly-angled bath and the room will flow in ways even calculus couldn’t describe – just check out this futuristic example below!
Control the Water
Delicately turning the hot and cold dials is a thing of the past. Smart fixtures – like thermostatic mixers and touchscreen showers – can take your perfectly-hot shower from an art to a science. This is especially useful in double showers, where multiple people can operate individual controls for their own water temperature.
The old medicine cabinet is an old news. New, customized vanities can float within the space you’ve designed while hiding the storage you need in your bathroom, giving an incredible illusion of spaciousness in the smallest rooms of your home.
Gray is the unanimous choice for the contemporary bathroom. It may seem a bit drab on its own, but splashes of white, a bit of life and a smidge of seasonal colour will bring the whole space to vivid life.
Your bathroom is just that – uniquely your own. It’s a reflection of your personal style, but it’s also a reflection of your home. This fact is becoming apparent in fledgling trend that’s beginning to bring the look of the living room through to the rest of the house – including the bathroom.
Whether your preference is a lively green or a stark gray, you’ll find the most striking appeal in the creative space between. Think elegance, think beauty and, above all, choose what you love.
