Bathroom renovations are one of the most effective ways to enhance the look and value of your home. But how do you know which bathroom design ideas will have the greatest impact? Bathroom planning begins with outlining what design features are important to you. This will help you develop bathroom ideas that will help you create a modern space that is functional, while offering a spa-like quality. Let’s review our top 10 bathroom ideas for 2023 that will leave your bathroom feeling like a luxurious getaway.
Install a rain shower head for a spa-like experience
You shower every day, so why not make it a more relaxing experience with the installation of a rain shower head. This style of the shower head allows water to gently cascade over your body which creates a relaxing massage experience.
Many modern shower heads have several settings that allow you to transition between a gentle rain to a more powerful jet.
Use natural materials like stone and wood for a rustic or earthy look
Is your bathroom looking dated? It may be time to update the materials in your bathroom. Choose natural materials like stone and wood to give your bathroom a more grounded and earthy look, and to also give it a modern and minimalist feeling. This will help you feel more at peace when relaxed in a hot bath at the end of the day.
It is also a great choice for the environment as sustainable materials not only make your bathroom look great but create less waste. Your contractor will be able to provide you with a large selection of material choices, so you can create a look that fits your lifestyle and design goals.
Add pops of colour with towels, rugs, and artwork
Contrast muted and earthy tones with a pop of colour. This can be in the form of accessories such as towels, rugs, or artwork. Design a bathroom around a theme or certain colour, taking inspiration from the colour of your tiles or the marbling of your countertop, then add complementary and contrasting colours to create a palette that is bold but chic. Blues, greens, and yellows are great choices for bathrooms. You can also choose a bold patterned wallpaper to give your bathroom a new, edgy look.
Incorporate storage solutions, such as shelving or a medicine cabinet, to keep a clutter-free space.
It’s easy for bathrooms to become cluttered with toiletries, towels, and hair care appliances. That’s why it’s important to include storage solutions that will keep your space organized. When developing your bathroom reno plan, think about all the items that you use in your daily routine. Build storage so that they are easily accessible. This may include items like:
- Wash cloths
- Cotton buds
- Toilet paper
Once you have decided on the best location for storage of these items, then design your cabinetry and shelving to reflect maximum use of space, while ensuring that everything is carefully hidden from view.
Hang a large mirror to create the illusion of a bigger space
Sometimes, the bathroom can be one of the smallest rooms in the house. A large mirror can help make your space look bigger by reflecting light and giving the illusion of more room.
A large vanity mirror is a great place to start. Complement this with a glass shower enclosure to help maximize light and give your space a large, spa-like quality.
Incorporate a bidet for increased hygiene and water conservation
Popular in Europe, bidets are not just practical, but also a great way to save on water and paper. Bidets are hygienic and use less water than toilets.
They also reduce the amount of paper created in the bathroom. Most can be installed in just a few minutes and hook up to your toilet’s existing plumbing in a snap.
Use a vessel sink on top of a vanity or countertop for a modern look
Add a dynamic architectural element to your sink with the addition of a vessel sink.
Choose from stunning materials like marble, granite, and quartz and give your bathroom a hotel-inspired feel.
Install dimmer switches to create a relaxing ambiance
For a truly relaxing and romantic experience in the bathroom, consider adding dimmer switches to your lights. This will allow you to set the mood, whether you want to relax in a hot tub at the end of the day or enhance the brightness when putting makeup on in the morning.
You can customize your dimmer switches to provide you with varying degrees of brightness, and also change colours from soft pinks to fun blues or golds.
Add plants to bring life and freshness to the space
Plants are a great addition to your bathroom, particularly spaces that have a lot of light. A plant can not only improve air quality but also help you breathe better when used in the shower.
Adding a eucalyptus plant during a steam bath will release lung-clearing freshness into the air. Succulents and hanging plants also do well in bathrooms, cleaning the air and creating a bright, cozy ambiance to your space.
Consider incorporating smart technology like a heated toilet seat or hands-free faucet
Most people are rushed when they are getting ready in the morning. Smart technology can help keep you on track by completing tasks automatically. Features such as a heated toilet seat or hands-free faucet add a level of comfort and functionality that makes getting ready in the morning a breeze. Take your experience a step further with the addition of a smart technology mirror that lets you watch the news, check the weather, and other great features that keep you on time in the morning. Many technological features are not only helpful to you, but to other people in your home or guests. People with accessibility issues will appreciate automatic lights, hands-free technology, and even touchless soap dispensers. Your contractor will be able to provide you with a variety of technology suggestions based on your lifestyle and bathroom renovation goals.
