You’re ready to start exploring your ideas for remodeling your bathroom. You know you want something clean, sleek, and modern, but also a warm, inviting retreat after a long day. Sometimes, it can be difficult to blend the straight lines of modern design with the homey feel you seek, but our team at Indy Renovation in Indianapolis comes prepared to help you do just that. Consider these four tips that have helped our clients marry that blend of modern taste with the comforts of home.
1. Choose a Neutral Color SchemeMany modern bathroom features are white and airy. But instead of doing everything a stark white, you can choose a few features to bring in a warming, neutral color like gray, beige, or tan. Many people choose these colors for their walls, bathroom vanity, or even floor tile. To preserve the modern touch, don’t go too crazy with color, but instead play around with neutrals and see what happens.
2. Consider ConcreteFrom countertops to floors, you can find a bit of concrete in many modern bathrooms. And why not? Concrete offers a unique, modern, and industrial feel that pairs well with more inviting elements like wood, natural stone, or even decorative foliage.
3. Skip the Tub/Shower ComboModern bathroom design doesn’t choose between a tub or a shower – and definitely not that fiberglass bathtub/shower combo you can find in nearly any home improvement store. Instead, choose both! Install a freestanding, modern bathtub as well as a separate walk-in shower for a luxurious and functional feel.
4. Add Wood Elements
Adding some wood elements in your bathroom is a very modern thing to do. Plus, it adds the layer of warmth you want. Consider some floating bamboo shelves or even a natural wood vanity top. You have many options. However, due to all the water and moisture in bathrooms, we do recommend that you stay away from traditional hardwood floors. You don’t want to invest all that money only to see them warp.
