How to Create a Modern Bathroom

Whether it’s your master bathroom, a hall bathroom, or the kids’ bathroom, a modern bathroom can be an aesthetic appeal to both your family and visitors. If your bathroom is outdated, our home improvement experts have some tips for how to create a modern bathroom:

  1. Start by updating the color of your bathroom. If yours is a shade of white or tan, try something more exciting like green or blue. Use your paint and your paint brush/roller to give each wall a new coat.
  2. Next, replace your old faucet fixture with something more modern. Try a fixture in brushed nickel, tumbled bronze, or satin brass to make your sink more up to date.
  3. After that, consider replacing your showerhead fixture. There are a variety of contemporary, low-flow models that can add a sleekness to your shower as well as help you save water and energy.
  4. If you’re on a budget and don’t have the money to completely redo your bathroom cabinets, try replacing the knobs. If your knobs are more than 15-20 years old, they likely look outdated, and new knobs can give your cabinets a fresh, modern look.
  5. For a bolder update, consider replacing your bathtub. Your bathtub is one of the things that catches your eye first, so a contemporary one can immediately give your bathroom a modern feel. Consider a freestanding tub or a corner bath.
  6. If you don’t already have one, a backsplash can add an artistic element to your bathroom. Follow our DIY to learn how to install a backsplash behind your sink, behind your shower, or around your whole bathroom.
  7. Add a modern touch to your bathroom with new lighting fixtures like pendant lights, globe lights, sconces, or recessed can lights.
