Modernise Your Home with a Designer Bathroom
If it has been years since you moved into your current home and you are just now considering your options for a bathroom remodel, the current trend may seem a bit overwhelming – especially if your taste is very traditional. The good news, though, is that the décor of the newly remodelled bathroom need not match the rest of the house, so if you are planning a bathroom remodel, don’t feel compelled to also bring in an interior designer who can make the rest of your home look as modern as your new designer bathroom.
It’s a well-known fact that kitchens and bathrooms are the most worthwhile investments for increasing your home’s value and the odds that it will actually sell if you ever decide to put it on the market.
Simple colours, optional contrast
While 2015 home remodels may have been all about bright colours, kitchens and bathrooms are both lighter and more austere in terms of colour scheme. Not sure you like the idea of a mostly white and grey bathroom? Then simply add a few bold black accents – perhaps even a whirlpool bath! Intermittent black floor tiles and black fixtures will also stand out boldly against a white or off-white wall, as will any bright chrome fixtures or trim. The current trend is modern chic, so play around with contrast if that’s your preference.
One feature of today’s designer bathroom that may take some more traditional-minded homeowners by surprise is the incorporation of modern technology, including Bluetooth for wireless sound systems, LED lighting and more. LED lighting is becoming commonplace in new buildings and homes due to the drop in price over the last several years as well as the consumer expectation that conventional builders make an effort to increase the sustainability of their products.
The wireless sound system is a sign that Generation Y has arrived and made the incorporation of technology into all aspects of daily life a given rather than an extravagance. Don’t shrug it off as a fad; with future generations taking the latest technology for granted, it’s well worth your while now to begin outfitting your bathroom and other parts of your home to meet the audio-visual standards of today’s twenty-something who, in another ten years or so, might come around with a realtor helping her to find her future home.
Upgrading the Shower
Often, simply updating the bathroom furniture or upgrading the shower will do the job. Consider installing Hansgrohe showers which are promoted as being a source of refreshment and relaxation. Gently dousing you in water, vigorously massaging your body and washing away all your negative energy. And yes, they also get you clean.
