Dated bathrooms, like kitchens, can add years to a well-kept older home that otherwise wouldn’t show its age. A bathroom remodel is an effective way to update your home while adding value to your property. But creating a modern space doesn’t mean embracing every fading trend.
Our design team at Valley Home Builders knows how to incorporate specific elements into a bathroom remodel to make the space both contemporary and timeless. Whether you’re hoping for something ultra modern, comfortably traditional, or simple and transitional, these suggestions will give your bathroom enduring appeal.
Neutral Colors & Natural Elements
In other settings, white may seem too sterile, but in a bathroom that’s exactly why it’s so appropriate. Neutral tones aren’t just clean; they create a calming and inviting environment. And if white’s too stark for you, there’s plenty of room for play. Consider beige tones or shades of matte gray for a simple but elegant aesthetic. Likewise, organic components, like wood pieces or terracotta tiles, add an element of sophistication and nuance, subtlety conjuring images of soothing spas and ancient bath houses.
New Hardware & Lighting Fixtures
Upgrading your sink hardware and cabinetry handles is perhaps one of the easiest ways to update your bathroom, but don’t stop there. Like dual vanities, dual shower heads are all but de rigueur in today’s master baths. An oversized rain shower head up top and an additional hand-held shower head placed lower are typical and offer a taste of luxury without extravagance. The same can be said for a simple light fixture swap. A statement fixture, or two, overhead will greatly elevate the space without unnecessary fuss.
The future is here, so you might as well enjoy its benefits. That said, don’t make yourself crazy trying to keep up with every innovation. Pick the conveniences that matter most to you and your family and forget the rest. Whether it’s a media system or radiant heated floors, a few technology inclusions can go a long way in turning the bathroom into one of your favorite rooms in the house.
Function or Bust
It doesn’t matter how beautiful your bathroom is if it’s not functional enough for daily use. At Valley Home Builders, we know the necessity for storage can’t be overstated. We work closely with our clients to ensure their bathrooms have the best layout and minimum space required to keep countertops clean and cabinets organized.
Remember: A well designed bathroom never goes out of style.
