4 Easy and affordable bathroom design trends to rejuvenate your space
As homeowners, we know when it’s time for a bathroom remodel, but we often struggle with where to begin the process. Today’s bathrooms have evolved from merely functional spaces into relaxing retreats full of personal style accents, luxurious appointments, and creature comforts. Fortunately, you don’t have to “go big or go home” (aka overspend) to get results. Adding just a few simple enhancements can deliver significant visual impact and increase the overall value of your room. If you’re redesigning your bathroom, go into the process armed with a few current design trends that achieve everything on your must-have checklist and help you create a final look you’ll love.
If you’re looking for a simple, relatively inexpensive way to redefine the bath, start with your vanity mirrors. Still have that large, builder-grade mirror stretching over both of your vanity sinks? Change things up by installing two smaller statement mirrors over each washing station. Once you’ve determined the right size and shape for each piece, partner with a glass distributor to further personalize the look with beveled edges or beveled strips for a sleek and sophisticated finish.
Ready to upgrade the shower from a curtain to glass? If you’re looking for something sleek and modern, consider a glass frameless shower. Clean, elegant, and with a touch of upscale hotel opulence, frameless showers instantly revamp the décor in your room. Make no mistake, a quality frameless shower offers so much more than just aesthetics. A well-designed model is also a structurally sound, sturdy, and safe option with no threat of metal corrosion.
Previous generations of glass showers often used moderately opaque, frosted panels and doors. However, transparent glass has steadily gained (and continues to gain) popularity – and with good reason. Today’s clear glass showers can have an aftermarket invisible coating applied at an extra cost to prevent hard watermarks and soap residue from building up on the panes. Plus, clear glass instantly adds visual interest, makes your bathroom feel more spacious, and shows off beautiful tile work.
Perhaps the easiest (and most affordable) way to update your bathroom? Swap out your fixtures. Shower handles, hinges, and even the knobs on your vanity cabinets and drawers can all start to seem a bit dated over time. Replace existing fixtures with a new color or finish to instantly freshen up both the look and function of your showers, doors and cabinets.
