Chic Ways To Modernise Your Bathroom
A growing family often calls for an updated bathroom. You may be looking for ways to cut down on time spent occupying the bathroom by considering his and her sinks, or perhaps transforming the room into more of a shower room? There are plenty of ways you can modernise your outdated bathroom to not only fit your growing family’s needs but also provide a fresh new look.
Transform Your Bathtub To A Spacious Shower
Reach out to your emergency plumber and find out if they can also do shower conversions. If you think you have a spacially challenged bathroom and a walk-in shower is impossible think again. Shower conversions are easier than you think. No matter how small you think your bathroom is, a walk-in shower is quite possible. You could even install a shower seat or a soothing showerhead that makes water drip out like rain. New, fancy tilework is meant to be shown off using sliding glass shower doors. The possibilities are truly endless and it all depends on the needs of your family.
Put In New Flooring
Switch out the outdated floor tiles or linoleum for something more contemporary like travertine, marble, porcelain or granite. This is perfect if you are looking to give your bathroom a luxury feel. Your bathroom will go from looking like something straight out of a 70s magazine to the modern bathroom of your dreams. Pay close attention to the way modern bathrooms do their flooring. Usually, the tile used in the shower or bath surrounds is the same tiles or flooring used throughout the rest of the bathroom. You can also choose this option. Take it a step further and pick the same materials used on your bathroom sink counter or vanity. Now your floors will match the shower and the countertops.
Update The Color Scheme
The color scheme is the main thing that you can change that will instantly give your bathroom an updated look if you do not do any renovations or other updates. The modern trend now is to add a splash of color on the walls as opposed to keeping things neutral or white. Colors to look out for would be powder blues, jewel tones and greens. If you are looking for modern accent colors, consider matte black or browns.
Update The Lighting
You want to make sure that your bathroom has the vibe right. Updating the lighting is the best way to do that. Any outdated, single-blub or fluorescent light fixtures can hit the road. Replace these with down-lights or light fixtures mounted to the wall along the sides of your bathroom mirror. If you really want to set the mood, install a light dimmer switch.
Update Your Bathroom Mirror
A unique and cool mirror can really tie everything together. Do away with the basic frameless square or rectangular mirror. Depending on the style of your home decor, get a mirror that is framed or in an interesting shape. If you pair all of these tips together your bathroom will look modern in no time.
