Many homeowners are looking for contemporary shower ideas to create their dream bathroom. Regardless of what inspiration you take, remember to choose the best-quality materials you can afford, and keep your bathroom simple, uncluttered and low-maintenance.
Due to frequent use and the resulting wear and tear, bathrooms tend to start breaking down after about 20 years, whether that’s a perpetually leaky faucet or crumbling grout or chipping tiles (or all three). On average, bathroom remodels cost $16,724, so your design should be both intentional and strategic in order to secure a high return on investment, as well as to create a functional space. That said, bathrooms are typically small, enclosed rooms so they are also a place in your home where you can play around a little bit with color and texture.
If you can’t afford a full gut-job then redecorating is one way to breath new life into the space without spending a fortune. There are many easy bathroom decorating ideas you can implement, from changing the hardware on your cabinetry to a new coat of paint.
Once you’ve upgraded the lighting quality of your bathroom, paint is the next quick and easy upgrade to the bathroom. Pick light colors for large surfaces like the walls and save the darker, richer tones for accents. Check how your color choices look in your upgraded lighting before you paint, since color temperature can change a color’s shade.Set a weekend aside, invite friends over and try a few of these ideas to give your bathroom a facelift.
Focusing on a shower when upgrading your bathroom is vital; most adults 45 or older prefer a shower to a bathtub. According to a survey by the National Association of the Remodeling Industry, the top universal design feature consumers want in their homes is a barrier-free shower — essentially one that is easy to access without having to climb in and out.
