Your bathroom has always been an important room in your house, but after a year of being home more than ever, you’re probably looking at it a little more critically these days! Let’s look at some of the most popular and on-trend bathroom remodeling ideas for you to consider!
How do I upgrade my bathroom?
- Easy-to-Clean Surfaces
Hygiene is an important element to consider when you’re remodeling your bathroom. What’s going to be easy to clean and keep your family healthy and safe in the long run? The design of your bathroom is one of the biggest elements to consider during a remodeling project. Everything from larger format tiles (with less grout joints) to flat slab cabinet door panels (with fewer nooks and crannies to clean out) to your paint finish (eggshell is a great washable choice) can make a huge difference in how easy to clean and maintain your bathroom is. You don’t have to swap style for cleanliness, just make the right design choices from the start!
- Updated Elements
If you have an outdated tub, Watters Plumbing can help you transform that space! We specialize in tub replacements and tub to shower conversions. We have access to the bathroom remodeling industry’s largest collection of bathtub-to-shower conversion options. We can also provide you with the right bathtub replacement to fit your style and family’s needs, including walk-in tubs for safe, easy access!
- Invest in Safety
- When you’re considering a bathroom remodel, investing in design elements and fixtures that make your bathroom safer is a smart move. Walk-in tubs are an excellent safety feature to explore, as are shower benches. Look for non-skid bath rugs to minimize slips and falls. Make sure your lighting choices are bright enough for easy visibility. Shop for motion sensor lighting elements to really upgrade things! Talk to your bathroom remodeling team about setting the thermostat on your water heater to prevent scalding water burns. Install grab bars (that are installed with bolts into your wall, not just with suction cups). There are so many ways to upgrade your bathroom and make it safer at the same time!
- Eclectic Style
Take some style inspiration from the pink bathrooms of the 50s as design inspiration! You don’t have to go all out retro pink, but embrace the elements of design that you love and give your bathroom a pop of personality! From bright rugs to fun art, your bathroom can be a great way to express your style and showcase the design elements that make you smile. When redesigning your bathroom, make purposeful design choices to create a space you love to use every day.
- Bold Colors
From blue cabinets to emerald green paint, colorful bathrooms are a popular design choice these days! When you’re ready to totally transform your bathroom, make careful, colorful design choices that bring a whimsical, stylish look to your space with bold, bright colors and complementary decor pieces.
- Go Big
We mentioned large format tiles earlier, but don’t limit yourself to just floor tiles! Large-format wall tiles can make a big statement in any size bathroom. Your tile choices are a great way to bring color and movement to your bathroom design, while also providing an easy to clean and easy to maintain surface.
- Lighten Things Up
No matter the color scheme you choose for your new bathroom, you can use backlit mirrors and medicine cabinets to really lighten up your space, and make it more functional while you’re at it! The design of most backlit cabinets and mirrors gives you more light in your space, without adding a glare or reflection issues. Backlit design elements are also a great way to keep the attention on your stunning new wall tiles or perfectly chosen paint color.
- Upgrade Your Toilet
If you’ve been considering a smarter, cleaner, more technologically advanced toilet, consider this your sign to really go for it! From self-closing lids to electronic bidet integration, there are so many bells and whistles you didn’t even know you needed! We can’t wait to help you find the perfect toilet for your bathroom!
- Pick Some Patterns
Wallpaper is making a comeback in a big way, and bathrooms are a great place to play with different patterns! Inject some color and energy into your bathroom with a lively wallpaper, or add some texture or shapes to a more neutral palette with a geometric design.
- In-Floor Heating
Really embrace that spa-like atmosphere with heated flooring in your bathroom. You’ll appreciate it the most in the middle of one of our Wisconsin winters, but you’ll love this amazing design touch throughout the year!
- Luxury Fittings
Splurge on one or two high-end design elements in your bathroom to create a true oasis that won’t break the bank. Whether you have your heart set on fancy shower components, a new walk-in tub feature, or high-end lighting, know what your most important, must-have design elements are, budget for them, then design around them with the right mix of cost-effective choices.
- Go Natural
Natural textures and neutral colors are on-trend, easy ways to embrace a very zen-like vibe in your bathroom. When you’re keeping things calm with your big ticket items, you can add a pop of color with your decor choices. A more subdued overall bathroom remodel leaves the door open for you to freshen things up with new rugs, bright towels, plants, and other design elements as your style changes.
