If your home is 15 years or older and you haven’t made any updates to your bathroom, chances are that both the style and fixtures are outdated. Whether thinking about selling your home, wanting to increase its value and efficiency, or simply desire the space and comfort you’ve been dreaming of, this year is the perfect time to upgrade your bathroom with modern features. But, what does a modern bathroom even look like? Use these ideas to get started on your planning:
- A space of your own. Are you still sharing sinks with your spouse? Fighting for the mirror before work, battling to brush your teeth, and claiming counter space when there is little to go around? A modern master bathroom often features two sinks, and sometimes separate vanity mirrors to give each person a space of their own. It’s an easy upgrade to take your bathroom from tolerable to comfortable
- Let there be light. Nothing is worse than waking up in the morning and heading into a bathroom with harsh, dim yellow lighting to get ready for the day. Add fixtures with brighter, white lighting to reach those darker corners, and consider using more glass when renovating your shower, and even more windows. Mirrors can also be helpful to reflect light and make smaller spaces feel bigger and more open.
- Shapes and colors. When it comes to modern bathrooms, the biggest factor is often the design – shapes and colors. “Modern” designs usually feature geometric shapes and neutral color palettes with grays and whites. Clean lines and simple colors can transform your bathroom into a spa-like retreat and every day can feel like you’re waking up in a luxury hotel – without the price.
