Make sure everything fits

This is one of the most important things. We tend to go overboard when we start a remodel, a lot of things we like might not be the perfect fit for our bathroom, but we still go ahead and buy them and try to figure out the layout afterwards. This is why it is so important that we take measurements first, make out a detailed layout and then and only then start our shopping. Everything from the size of your shower and washing machine to the depth of your shelving matters so as to create a perfect space that won’t feel too crowded nor will it lack in functionality.

Make sure you get quality tech

So let’s start with the basics, opting for the top of the line washing machines and dryers is a must, they will make your life a lot easier, and with the modern design and sleek lines they will also be able to fit well with your bathroom design. Next on the tech list are a smart shower and toilet. Having a shower that has a dashboard that allows you to control all the functions while playing the music of your choice is definitely a huge plus. And for the toilet we can thank the Japanese, the produce the top of the line smart toilets with multiple functions including, yes, you got it, music playing options.

The backdrop matters

This means that you need to pay attention to the choice of tiles and paint. A strong color or pattern means that everything else in the bathroom needs to be toned down as to avoid clashing. On the other hand, if you chose stylish tiles in neutral colors you can easily add a lot more color with vanities, and final touches like the mirror and the rug. In addition, a toned-down tile background can provide you with a lot more freedom to introduce color later on and to play with different colors as you redesign your bathroom.

Decide on a single design

Mixing and matching designs might seem like a great idea, but it is one that you shouldn’t do without professional help, only an experienced interior designer can make a mix-and-match work. This is why it is better to stick to a single design trend. You can always take your time and see what is on offer when it comes to bathroom design, read through some blog posts or visit different furniture shops, most of the have staged suggestions so that you can get inspired about where to go with your bathroom. But, before you buy remember what we talked about in the first paragraph, make sure it fits.

Don’t forget about the finishing touches

This is very important, it is what will bring your entire bathroom design together. First on the list is, of course, the mirror, it can serve as an artistic centerpiece of your entire bathroom, a visually stunning focal point. So, it is always a better option to go with a framed mirror than one that is simple and without clearly defined edges. Another thing to consider when we talk about finishing touches is the bathroom rug, depending on the design, you can go with a colorful option or a gentle nude color, it needs to go well both with the tiles and the pre-decided color pallet.

By following these design tips, you will be able to give your bathroom a true modern makeover. All that will be left is to enjoy your final product daily. A nice bubble bath or a long hot shower, either way, relaxation will be unavoidable.
