In our previous article we gave you some guidelines for remodeling your bathroom. (see Remodel Guide to a Modern Bathroom). Keeping the guidelines in mind, we, at Innovative Kitchen and Bath, have put together a few ideas for you to help with your modern bathroom remodel decisions.
Hidden Toilet Tanks
One of the modern trends is to have a toilet with a hidden tank. If you are trying to save space, then this design is worth considering. They have several benefits with one of them being that they save water every time you flush. For a modern and contemporary feel these toilets are an excellent choice. However, it’s maintenance can be difficult as the tank is inside the wall and access is not easy, which is why you need to consider the installation.
It has been found that the majority of people would choose durable flooring rather than stylish bathroom flooring. However, you really don’t want a dull looking bathroom either. Of the many floor and wall tile choices, the most popular are marble, ceramic and porcelain, not only for looks but also because they are highly water resistant.
Baseboard tiles don’t only look elegant, but they are highly durable as well, and they are easy to clean. Textured shower tiles allow you to have a grip in the shower, preventing you from slipping on the soapy floor.
Are bathtubs necessary?
It can be very elegant and appealing to have a bathroom with a bathtub. It is very trendy and if you are thinking of selling the house it may attract many buyers. The question is, can you do without it? Is it practical if your bathroom is small with limited space?
Add a window
Ventilation is vital in a bathroom and natural ventilation is the best, even though a fan may manage just fine. Humidity trapped in a bathroom due to lack of ventilation can cause many problems.
Putting a window right next to a shower to allow the heat and humidity to escape, is an excellent idea. Besides a window will let in a lot of natural light, which is always visually pleasing. Tilted windows are the best choice and remember to use frosted glass for privacy.
With a modern bathroom remodel your bathroom should look more functional and more stylish. It is a major investment, for which you need to ensure you get the best returns.
