As earlier mentioned, today’s bathrooms have shifted roles, from being the practical areas purely meant for hygiene to somewhat optional living spaces. People are spending more and more time in the bathrooms. They have made the room their ‘getaway’ place where they can go to relax and unwind.
People have become creative coming up with innovative décor ideas to give their bathroom a personal touch. Comfy water-proof furnishing and storage options that resemble furniture, recessed mirrors, open shelves and indulgent showers are some of the things that suit the lifestyle demands of today’s modern bathrooms. In light of that, below are some stylish bathroom ideas and décor trends worth considering.
Free Up The Space
Bathrooms in many modern homes are not as big as many would wish them to be and thus the renovations should include creative ideas that make the available room look and feel bigger than it is. One way of achieving this is by working with vertical space which is possible by installing wall-mounted sinks, toilet, and faucets that free up more leg-room.
Also, you can opt to do away with the floor cabinetry and work with stylish ones on the wall above the sink or the toilet. Removing the tub and installing a shower also help make a small bathroom look and feel bigger especially when using the infinity style of shower.
Every bathroom remodeling project should include measures that make the room more energy efficient, more so when it comes to lighting. While most people are keen on making changes that encourage more natural light into the room, it also is wise to invest in good, energy-efficient, artificial lighting such as LED lights.
Vanity lighting is one of the popular options, one that has many homeowners using creative lighting techniques that incorporate the use of dimmers and suitable lighting fixtures to create a luxurious and soothing feeling. Wall Sconces, light bars, small light pendants and strategically placed mirrors are valid options that add some stylish décor to the bathroom.
Pops Of Color
Fresh flowers in a colorful vase may help add some color to the room, but that may not suffice. The best approach would be to mix up the palette when adding new bathroom fixtures and accessories. For instance, the wall-hung storage units can have a color that contrasts that of the walls. The flooring and wall upgrade can be done using printed tiles of different patterns, and you can complement this with printed shower curtains. Just stick to a monochrome scheme of two colors for the décor and then add pops of color using your accessories such as the cabinetry, shelving, faucets, and lighting.
High Tech Accessories
As many homes transition to the modern way of life, many bathrooms are often left behind. So, the next bathroom upgrade should account for the ways of making the room feel high-tech and in tune with the current tech standards and demands. Digital temperature management systems are a common feature in most modern bathrooms that can pre-heat the room before using it and even set the shower to the preferred temperature.
Smart toilets can have LED lighting that switches on automatically when they sense a person; the same applies to toilets that have heated seats. Glowing showers can emit light based on the temperature of the water which is also a trend feature when it comes to high-tech bathroom accessories. Some homes install cool lighting effects that help set the right mood when using the bathroom.
Today, the bathroom in more than just a place used for hygiene. In most modern homes, the bathroom is a place to unwind, wash up, and get beautiful. As such, the room should be refreshing and comfortable to all that use it.
