Five Remodeling Tips for a Beautiful, Modern Bathroom

Read below to learn five remodeling tips for a beautiful, modern bathroom

When you remodel your bathroom, you have the opportunity to not only create a more functional space but to also add to the value of your home. There are many changes, both small and major, that can be done to make your bathroom look and feel brand new while not breaking the bank.

UPDATING A SMALL BATHROOM

Just because your bathroom is small in size it doesn’t mean it can’t be big in style. Using glass tiles on the walls adds visual interest and won’t blow the budget since they are priced by the foot. Floating vanities take up minimal space and add plenty of modern style. Adding a bold paint color to one or all of the walls makes a fashion statement without overwhelming the space. A modern vessel sink in glass or copper is unique, trendy and fun, so consider installing one if you’re re-doing the bathroom fixtures during your remodel. Small bathrooms and powder rooms are the perfect place to add big impact.

ADDING TECHNOLOGY IN THE BATHROOM

Technology in the bathroom can bring a spa-like experience to your home. Add a shower with programmable customization features, including setting the water temperature and pressure and adding a remote control so you can turn the shower on while you are still in bed. New technology can even add water massages and body sprays. Technologically advanced toilets are also available, including built-in seat warmers, hands-free flushing and self-cleaning options.

BATHROOM CLADDING

Decorative cladding can be placed over existing tiles and is a beautiful, creative way to update your bathroom. It is stylish, easy to install, low maintenance and completely waterproof. It can be used on the walls or ceiling. Cladding has tongue and groove interlock fittings, so there is no need for grout. Bathroom cladding is both functional and aesthetic, lending your bathroom a modern, elegant feel. Available in a variety of colors and widths, you can create your own individual look and easily match any existing decorations.

BATHROOM LIGHTING

Perfect lighting in a bathroom is very important. Insufficient lighting can make performing the usual bathroom tasks almost impossible, while too much light can make the bathroom look harsh and cold. When you think about adding style and value to the bathroom, lighting should be one of your biggest focuses. Lighting should be layered to create a dreamy and luxurious atmosphere–consider putting a sparkling chandelier in the center of the room, accented with recessed ceiling lights, decorative wall sconces and small fixtures over the bathtub area.

BATHROOM FIXTURES

While many homeowners think they need to replace the fixtures when they remodel the bathroom, they can save some money on the remodel by refinishing the bathtub. Porcelain, cast-iron and fiberglass tubs can all be refinished. This process has become very popular, especially among owners of older homes with antique tubs. You can choose to have the tub refinished in a single color, or have one color on the interior and another on the exterior. This is a job that can be done by a handy homeowner, but there are professionals who specialize in this process if you wish to contract out the work.

No matter your budget, the age and size of the bathroom, or the reason for remodeling, they are many ways to remodel your bathroom that will add both style and value.
