Top Bathroom Remodelling Ideas
After a long day at work, many of us like to de-stress by taking a warm, soapy bath. A bathroom may be only a place for washing the dirt off our bodies and getting ready in the morning, but for some, it can be a spa and a personal sanctuary for relaxation. With this in mind, it’s only fitting to ensure that this space is practical, functional and easy to the eyes. Keep in mind that every component and aspect in your bathroom must work together to meet your practical needs for bathing and relaxation.
If you’re planning to renovate your bathroom, take a look at our list below to get some ideas that will get your creative juices flowing. We’ve also included some designs that have been trending in the remodelling industry this year!
Keeping the Space Small Yet Highly Efficient
Of course, most of us dream of having a bathroom that looks fresh off the pages of a luxury home magazine. We swoon over expansive double tubs, expensive flooring, and his & hers cabinets. These days, skilled and talented remodelling professionals have discovered that smaller yet efficiently designed bathrooms can be as great as bigger ones. The trend nowadays focuses on smaller bathrooms that offer practicality with a slice of luxury.
The key to creating such a design is keeping the space comfortable, and not cramped, as it’s important to maximize the available area. Freestanding, single-person tubs are becoming more and more popular, along with Artisan toilets and uniquely crafted sink bowls.
If you want a functional, scaled-down bathroom, it would be ideal to incorporate a walk-in shower in the design. You can create an illusion of space by using shelving instead of large floating vanities and cabinets. It would also be ideal to use interesting floor graphics or wall patterns to make the space look and feel bigger.
Incorporating High Technology
If you’ve got a freer budget, you will benefit from investing in high-technology bathroom features. These days, techy toilets come with automatic lid openers with adjustable speed, air dryers, and built-in deodorizers, among others. If you want to make your bathroom even more interesting, you can even opt for a toilet with a wireless music player that automatically turns on when you open the lid!
Many innovations such as smart showers are becoming more popular, as they automatically set your preferred water temperature. You can also install a small fridge where you can keep your medicine and drinks, warming drawers for lines and robes, and for water conservation and convenience, you can opt to install automatic faucets that turn on when you place your hands beneath them.
Some people may only buy a pair of slippers to protect their feet from the icy bathroom floor, but you’ll be pleased to know that you can do away with this by investing in a heating system underneath your flooring. This luxurious upgrade is especially useful during the winter months, as you won’t have to tiptoe inside your bathroom when you wake up in the middle of the chilly night. The great thing about this is that it can be used with a variety of flooring options, including vinyl, concrete, tiles and even natural stone like granite, and in addition to the heated flooring providing warmth to your feet, it also lowers noise levels.
Neutral Styles with Organic Undertones
If you want a truly relaxing bathroom space, it would be ideal to opt for natural decors. You can mix comfort and elegance by leaning towards a colour palette that features whites, grey and warm brown hues. Vintage plumbing fixtures, weathered tiles, and aged flooring are making their way into modern bathrooms, making the space more cosy and relaxing.
The key is to keep the design natural with an organic infusion. Colours of nature—blues, greens, and browns—can be incorporated into neutral bathrooms. You can attempt to bring the outdoors into your bathroom by decorating it with flowers, plants and even grass. Such design would go well with materials like natural stone, reclaimed wood, and brick.
Creating Character through Countertops and Walls
If you’re aiming for a modern yet neutral bathroom, it’s essential to choose the right surface covering for your walls and countertops which give you the opportunity to showcase your character and personal style, as these are the surfaces that significantly determine the look and mood of your bathroom.
You can create a stunning impact on the floor by using porcelain or ceramic graphic tiles. Here at Aurora Stone, we offer a range of ceramic and porcelain tiles in a range of patterns and colours, which are the most cost-effective option for making your bathroom a show stopper, and can be used for both countertops and walls!
On the other hand, if you prefer keeping things natural and subtle, you might want to consider natural stone countertops, which can be installed in a stacked and/or textured pattern to highlight a certain portion of your bathroom. We’d like to recommend using onyx as an accent piece for your natural stone countertops to create an interesting vibe in your bathroom.
