We’ve already written about the beauty of a vintage bathroom, and this could certainly be a fantastic choice for your home. However, you might also want to consider heading in the opposite direction with your bathroom redesign. You could instead think about building it up to be a contemporary masterpiece, completely with all the modern tech that you can get on the market today, futuristic style choices and a stunning aesthetic. There are lots of options here that could look very impressive and might also add a little more to your enjoyment.
For instance, you might want to think about adding some unique lighting to your bathroom. You can get lights for inside the toilet that light up the bowl, giving it a fluorescent glow. These change colours and make your bathroom look vibrant in the dark. You may also add LEDs to underneath the taps and faucets, ensuring that the water glows too. This type of modern feature can be incredibly atmospheric, and the best part is that a design like this is completely affordable. These leads will literally fit into any budget and look absolutely stunning.
Since we mentioned lighting, you might also want to consider changing the light fixtures in the room. Instead of the typical one point of light, you can add spotlights to your bathroom. These will make each of the main features shine from the bathtub to the shower area. Bathrooms are designed with materials that reflect light, so it is important to make the most of this feature.
Let’s look at some of the other options you can consider to make your modern bathroom look stunning.
A Floating Vanity Cabinet
You might want to start by considering the purchase a floating vanity cabinet. These can be fitted to the wall rather than resting on the floor, freeing up space and ensuring that your bathroom looks open. They can be purchased in a variety of styles and finishes and the top can be made of a material with the aesthetic of marble. This can look magnificent in any bathroom, and it can also be the perfect place for your basin. The basin can rest on top of the vanity cabinet and may be chosen to match the rest of the room. For instance, you can get an industrial styled basin with hard corners or a smooth perfectly rounded bowl.
Vanity cabinets are a great way to keep the clutter in your bathroom to an absolute minimum, keeping things minimalist and cool. If you are aiming for a contemporary style, we suggest not bothering with handles or knobs on the cupboard doors and drawers. Instead, you can keep things smooth by opting for a much mechanism with the drawers or cupboards opening automatically and closing just as easily.
Get The Right Bath
You also need to think about the right bath. A built-in bath can look fantastic, particularly if it is partially sunken into the floor. You can even match the bath to the design of the rest of the room. For instance, you might have Wooden planks of wood on the floor. If that’s the case, then you can use the same wood to build the side of the bath, framing it beautifully in the room.
If you love soaking in the tub and want your bath to be the centrepiece of your room, you can consider purchasing a freestanding bathtub. Placed in the centre of the bathroom these can look absolutely incredible with a chic finish. You might think that standing tubs are old fashioned, but they are certainly in style this year. If you don’t believe that just look at some of the modern designs to choose from on www.kardiel.com/Modern-tubs/modern-freestanding-bathtubs. The elegant, bold designs could look absolutely tremendous in any modern bathroom. And be a key focal point.
Remember what we said about lighting? With a freestanding tub, you can use lighting again but this time but the emphasis on one key feature rather than several.
Going Big With The Shower
Showers are becoming more popular in the modern world. Why is this? Well, it’s probably because we’re constantly in a rush and so there isn’t typically time to relax in the tub. This has lead to people attempting to make their shower far more luxurious. Nothing says luxury than a larger size and that’s why people these days often expand and extend their shower area out into the room. By doing this, you can have a massive space to wash in and even have double or triple jets. An extra tip would be to upgrade your water pump. You can find new water pumps on www.anchorpumps.com/blog/the-complete-guide-to-buying-a-shower-pump. If you’re not particularly worried about the water bill, it can feel like you’re bathing in a bubbling waterfall.
These days, it’s even quite common for bathrooms to be setup as shower rooms, but we wouldn’t go down that route. Not when there are so many stylish ways to separate the area such as frosted glass doors that will look incredible.
You might also want to consider adding a mirror to your beautiful new bathroom. A full wall mirror is a brilliant way to bring a bathroom to life as perceptively it doubles the space in a room. It makes it look open, and visually it looks fantastic.
You might want to use this idea in relation to designing your bathroom like a spa. Spas often have full body mirrors, and this feature is complemented with light fixtures as well as bright cream walls. With this type of design, you can keep your bathroom looks clean, clear and delightfully chic.
We hope you love some of these ideas and considering using them in your own bathroom. While a vintage bathroom can be a room that feels like home a modern bathroom looks ultra impressive and indeed valuable. If you’re thinking about selling your home anytime soon, this is certainly a change that you should consider.
