The looming winter can make the bathroom an inhospitable, cold place. What if the bathroom had underfloor heating? What if the bathroom was tech smart and the shower knew you were coming? A bathroom renovation can be the perfect winter home improvement project. Some bathroom remodeling projects can even give your small bathroom the extra space you’ve always wished for. Here is a list of things you should think about when it comes time for your next bathroom remodel.
There is no need to hire an interior designer when we have all of the hottest bathroom remodeling ideas in one place! From the bathtub and shower to the bathroom floor, we will cover every bathroom feature imaginable. With the help of North Country Windows and Bath, you can cut down on your bathroom remodel cost by eliminating the need for a bathroom designer. Check out some of our favorite bathroom design ideas below.
Grey is now retired. Darker tones are the order of the day, especially black. Matte black finishes are great for vanities, light fixtures, and mirrors.
Technology now extends beyond built-in deodorizers, heated towel rails and toilet seats, adjustable air dryers, and automated lid openers. Make way now for smart mirrors, smart showers, automated sinks, and mini-fridges. There is also voice-activated climate control and lighting. TV and wireless music systems in the bathroom are also becoming popular.
Plumbing fixtures, toilets, sinks, and faucets are in for a gold or brass tone makeover. Gold and brass are great for adding warmth and a touch of opulence to your bathroom. These colors create a sense of dimension and luxury, especially in a matte or satin finish. Gone is the cold shiny chrome and the constant need to clean off watermarks and fingerprints.
Industrial style vanities and sinks with metal finishes, wooden accents with jazzy tile patterns will create a modern urbanized look. These will fit in well with brass and gold accents and matte black finishes.
Tiles will see new colors, pattern designs, and shapes. From shower walls, ceiling accents, backsplashes, and floor tiles, expect to see colorful and interesting chevrons, fish scales, hexagons, diamonds, and arabesque tiles.
Wood accents compliment darker-colored bathrooms as well as white bathrooms. Also, wood adds a warmer tone to the bathroom.
Minimized compact storage will add simplicity and a touch of minimalism to the bathroom. A tidy bathroom is always a pleasure to walk into, especially when there is an absence of clutter. Smaller, more compact storage units will also make the bathroom feel roomier and bigger.
Pop colors paired with neutral colors will add a comfortable atmosphere and a pleasant mood. Increase relaxation levels with pops of blue and bring in nature and feels of wellness with pops of green. Choose your favorite color to add pops of cheerfulness.
Stack bond or straight-line tiling on the floor and walls is very neat. This type of tiling is striking and will highlight other features of your bathroom.
Get the look and feel of a spa with a big bathtub. Jacuzzi tubs are a thing of the past for the bathroom. However, a big bath is trendy, inviting, and allows for comfort and relaxation.
A walk-in shower is roomier and adds a sense of openness. Smart showers can be programmed to be on and at the right flow and temperature, ready and waiting for you. Add a built-in mini shower seat for additional comfort.
Look out for new geometric shapes in asymmetrical mirrors. Even mirrors are smart these days. Typical smart mirror features include USB charging stations, smart touch lighting, and anti-fog technology. Smart mirrors can be front-lit and backlit. Modern mirrors are all about functionality.
Underfloor heating. The name says it all. You might also consider heated towel rails and toilet seats. If that’s not enough warmth, there are also warmer drawers for robes and linens. Heating systems can also help to reduce noise levels.
A mini-fridge can be used for beverages, medicine storage, and organic makeup. And chocolate! Stock your bathroom mini-fridge with anything and everything!
Floating vanities make a bathroom feel lighter. They are also less susceptible to water damage from sitting on the floor. You can opt for “his & hers” dual vanities.
Yes! Modern, big, bold graphics, murals, and colorful patterns are very striking and cheerful. For the traditionalists, classic print and floral patterns still have their place. Cover an entire wall or create a decorative panel. Make your bathroom remodel unique with whatever style you choose.
Modern bathrooms are becoming personalized day spas. Technology is adding more convenience and comfort. Bathrooms will always be a very private place, particularly the en-suite. Whatever the latest and greatest trends are, make sure you are comfortable in your own bathroom. Trendy bathroom remodels should not only work for you but also reflect you.
