Some Ideas For A Modern Bathroom Remodel
If you're planning to remodel your bathroom, here are a few ideas you may want to use.
Tilework In Lieu Of Drywall
The benefits of tile over drywall are many. First and foremost, especially when you are dealing with a humid space such as a bathroom, is that tile is much more resistant to mold damage. Drywall, on the other hand, really does not stand up well to moisture. In many bathrooms, people tend to only use tile in the areas around the shower and on the floor, but it's a good idea to use tile all over if you are going to spend the money on a modern bathroom remodel. You can get small tiles for the floor and then larger tiles for the walls. Different color tiles, as well as different sizes, will help break up the visual space.
Stainless Steel Fixtures
One thing you might want to look into is replacing all of your current fixtures. You might have old, cracked porcelain fixtures, or a mix of different designs from years of replacing different fixtures. Now is the time to get them all replaced and have them match beautifully. Stainless steel is a perfect option because not only does it look beautiful and modern, but it is also very resistant to water damage and stains.
A Tub Reglazing Or A Whole New Tub
Finally, no significant bathroom remodel would be complete without tackling your tub. Most people are always cleaning and scrubbing their tub, however, this won't really make it look brand new. The only way to transform your tub is to either reglaze it or replace it. So, bring in your contractors and ask them which is the best option for you. If you like your current tub's design, and it's only an issue of it looking a bit old, then you can opt for a reglaze. If, however, you would like it to look completely different, you should ask the contractors about removing it and bringing in a new tub entirely.
If you're planning on a modern remodel and you have always found your old bathtub tiresome, then it's the perfect opportunity to have it taken out and have something like a modern walk-in shower installed. These would work really well with an all tile design. You could find ideas online and present them to the contractor and then ask for photo mocks ups ahead of time and computer visualizations so that you will get a really accurate idea as to what your bathroom will eventually look like.
