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

rounded up some useful advice, so feel free to check it out.
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.
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.

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.

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.
