Tips for a Modern Bathroom

How to achieve modern bathroom look

If you’re looking for a sleek, modern look for your home, your bathroom will have to follow suit – setting up a home as a whole is one of the most important factors in being satisfied with its looks and design. In order to help you achieve this look, we’ve rounded up some useful advice, so feel free to check it out.

Use Natural Materials

The green and eco-friendly trend isn’t likely to go anywhere anytime soon; in fact it will hopefully grow popular enough to really make a difference. Using natural materials plays perfectly with the modern bathroom – wood, bamboo, slate and tile all contribute to a cold minimalistic style, making for a natural atmosphere within a bathroom.

Going Eco-Friendly

On the previous note, efficient and intelligent bathrooms are very popular at the moment – if it is saving water and energy, you are not only trending, but playing it smart. Eco-friendly options pay compliments to both our planet and your pocket.

Think low flush toilets, water-conserving showerheads and faucets, as well as using eco-friendly materials for flooring, such as bamboo. Make sure that you use low-toxicity paints and think about getting some LED lights – they save energy, reduce the carbon footprint and, although they cost more than your regular bulbs, tend to pay off in the long run.

Showers

Let’s face it, showers are the first thing you notice in a bathroom, unless there’s a huge fancy bath or a Jacuzzi in it. Modern showers are made solely from glass and are used without any curtains – in this way, you can go really big with the cabins; regardless of how small the bathroom is, a glass shower will make it seem larger.

When it comes to showerheads, although there are many cool options available out there, one that offers a rainwater-like experience is by far the most popular –a huge showerhead is placed on the shower’s ceiling – the rest is pretty much obvious.

Bathtub

If you’re more of a bathtub kind of person, by all means, go for it! There are many cool solutions available out there, but the best advice to be given is to simply go large! No use in being modest with the size of your bathtub – otherwise, you might as well get a shower. Getting a shower-bathtub hybrid is always a cool and modern choice, but make sure that you don’t use shower curtains in order to make your bathroom appear both more spacious and more modern.

Keep in mind, though, that you should keep an eye out for blocked drains, regardless of whether you’re using a bathtub or a shower – these can cause issues with bacterial infections which tend to be more serious than other potential problems that may ensue, such as floods and bursting pipes.

Making it Look Bigger

A modern bathroom should be spacious, or, at least, appear so. So, how to make a seemingly large bathroom when you have a limited amount of space to work with? Of course, you can tear down a wall or two, but there is a cheaper way.

By strategically placing mirrors inside your bathroom, you can effortlessly make it look significantly larger. No more than 2 mirrors are necessary, as long as you place them in all the right places. Ideally, have at least one of them looking outside; if there’s a window in your bathroom, that is.

Coming up with a modern bathroom is just as important as paying attention to the outlook of the rest of your home. Always remember to keep eco-friendliness in mind and to go with natural elements. Additionally, use the given tips to make your facilities appear larger and go with LED lighting – it’s more natural!
