If you are looking for ways to modernise your home, renovating your bathroom is a great idea. Making clever use of colour can add light and depth to your bathroom, as can the use of shutters. Think neutrals, feature tiles, and contemporary shutters to make an impact.
Flat panel cabinets in white or medium wood are in vogue at the moment and a cool tub is not only the ultimate in relaxation – it will never go out of style.
Make Use of White
White brings a clean fresh look to any bathroom. It is modern and inviting. White rectangular tiles and vanities look fantastic with a touch of medium wood on the vanity and mirror. Use other coordinating neutral tones for effect – beige tiles and darker chrome taps and shower heads are on trend. This understated look is simple, stylish and in vogue.
Use an Open Shower
Open showers give you extra space in the bathroom. This is great for those with a smaller bathroom to give the illusion of more room.
Add a Feature Tub
A freestanding tub is a feature of many beautiful bathrooms. Nothing portrays relaxation like a deep, modern, tub and fluffy robes and towels at the ready. You can create the look and feel of a sanctuary by making the bath your focal point of the room. Your bathroom can essentially be your own day spa – a place where you relax and unwind at the end of a busy day.
Make Use of Wood
Beautiful warm and medium tones of wood create a great look for bathrooms. Use the one tone, or combine shades – having a different type of wood for your feature wall, vanity, and floor. Add some stylish accessories in beiges and browns to complete the look – towels, toothbrush holders and wicker baskets for example.
Use Quality Plumbing
When renovating your bathroom always use quality plumbing, and top brand hot water systems and fixtures. Scrimping on the cost of pipes and the like can lead to costly overhauls down the track. Not to mention the inconvenience of not having a bathroom while repairs are unexpectedly made!
Have a Unique Shower Door
Using a different and eye-catching shower door will make your bathroom stand out. Black trimmings and handles, sliding doors, and combination glass and tile doors all look aesthetic and unique. A really different idea is to use coloured glass, or a sliding wooden door that goes across your shower. This looks great and gives you added privacy.
Use Bold Colours
A strong colour can really give your bathroom a lift. Whether it is feature tile, bright accessories, or an entire feature wall of colours, a bold hue or pattern adds class and is on trend right now. Think mosaics, tile details in small and large patterns, and patterned walls.
