When it comes to remodeling a Bathroom, a place that many homeowners overlook is the bathroom. However, as one of the most frequently used rooms, the bathroom can make a significant impact on the overall look and function of your home.

An up-to-date bathroom not only typically has more efficient fixtures, but a modern, clean look can add to the property’s resale value.

Consider Contemporary Colors

Need ideas for giving your bathroom a contemporary aesthetic? Consider using simple, basic monochrome designs for your bath or shower walls. Colors like gray and white are almost always good choices. Other great hues for a polished bathroom look include:

  • Almond
  • Biscuit
  • Charmeuse
  • Basket Weave

For areas like your shower base and bath liner, consider solid, light colors to keep the room looking airy and fresh. You may want to choose white or gray for these areas, especially if you go with gray walls, as this will keep the room from appearing too dark.

If you opt for brown bath or shower walls, consider shades like biscuit, almond, or sandbar for your base and liners.

Choose Modern Materials

More and more homeowners these days are choosing to forego tile and instead, install acrylic shower and tub materials. Acrylic is much easier to clean than tile, a material that’s notoriously difficult to keep looking clean. If you prefer the look of tile and grout, there are plenty of modern options that mimic the look of these traditional materials but don’t come with the hassle.

Some of the best patterns to use include:

  • Subway
  • Fairfield
  • Diamond
  • Marazzi
  • Roman Block

Update Your Accessories

You can also easily update the look of your bathroom by swapping out some of the accessories. For example, consider changing the cabinetry handles, a simple DIY job that can instantly change the atmosphere of your bathroom. It’s always a good idea to stick just one or two materials for accessories. If you mix and match chrome, brass, steel, matte black fixtures, etc., it’s easy to unintentionally create a disorderly look in the bathroom.

Other convenient accessories include a shower footrest to make shaving easier, an attached bench seat for the shower, grab bars, and other items that increase accessibility.
