Most of our waking hours at home are spent in the kitchen and the bathroom – it’s no wonder that these rooms are at the top of the list for desired home renovations. If your home is your oasis, you don’t want your oasis to be outdated or uncomfortable. But, because home design trends are constantly changing, that may be precisely what you have. Perhaps, your bathroom was built in the 1970s, and oranges, yellows, and browns surround you. Maybe your bathroom is the product of a Do-It-Yourself renovation that you didn’t do, and you don’t like. Or it may just be that your bathroom was designed in an era when smaller bathrooms were the norm, and your family could use a little more space. Whatever the reason, remodeling your bathroom is a great way to update your home.
Renovating a bathroom is no small feat. Repainting walls is one thing, but tasks such as laying tile and any plumbing require experience. Let the skilled professionals of Forever Builders step in while you step back. Our years of experience make us experts in bathroom renovations and all the many details that go into it. We pride ourselves on working with each customer to create a bathroom that works best for them, within their budget, and delivered on time. If you are thinking about remodeling your bathroom in 2022, here are ten remodeling ideas that are popular right now and can bring your bathroom up to date with the latest styles and functions.
1. Modern Farmhouse
The rustic farmhouse look is all the rage right now for every room in the home. Bring some of that rustic romance into the bathroom, but with a modern twist to keep it up to date. This bathroom captures the rural sentiment of the farmhouse look with its wooden vanity, woven baskets for storage, and shiplap ceiling, but modern touches keep it firmly in this century. Notice the contemporary feel of the glassed-in shower, the sleek white tub, and the monochromatic color scheme. These touches give the bathroom the sense of farmhouse chic without living in an authentic farmhouse. Other elements of the farmhouse style you may choose to incorporate into your bathroom include beadboard wall paneling, painted cabinetry, painted shiplap for the walls, planked wood flooring, and galvanized metal touches throughout. Ask our design team how you can add this simple, sensible style to your newly remodeled bathroom.
2. Custom Storage
Bathrooms require a lot of things–toothbrushes, soaps, cosmetics, blow-dryers, and more. Countertops can disappear instantly because it makes sense to keep the items you need in your bathroom; talk with your builder about custom storage options. If you like the look of open shelving, think about what you would keep on those shelves. Your builder can work with you to design shelving that can adequately hold everything you need attractively. Or, if you prefer to keep things behind closed doors, custom cabinets are another great option. Depending on the look of your house, you can choose solid wood cabinets or glass-paneled doors. Our design team will create storage solutions specifically designed for your space, making the most of every available inch. A customized storage design allows for results you can’t achieve when purchasing storage solutions off the shelf. Choosing storage that works with your needs – whether that means shelves, drawers, or cabinets with pull-out shelving – will keep your bathroom clean, beautiful, and free from clutter.
3. Make Your Bathroom Accessible
For the millions of Americans approaching retirement and the many already there, remodeling a bathroom to keep it accessible at any age is an important update. Changing the features of your bathroom can allow you to stay in your home for years, even if your health and motility change. If you are planning to remodel your bathroom anyway, why not add universal design elements? These features make your bathroom accessible to anyone of any age and motility, benefiting you and any visitors you may have. Universal design is meant to be universally accessible, so there is no downside to implementing it now. Some examples of universal design include doorways wide enough to accommodate wheelchairs and walkers, lever handles that are easier to operate than standard knobs, a comfort height toilet, and grab bars near the toilet and in the shower. By incorporating universal design into your bathroom remodel, you prepare for the future while creating an attractive and updated bathroom now.
4. Freestanding Tubs
If you want to be on-trend, freestanding tubs are the way to go. This update is ideal for turning your bathroom into a retreat–there is nothing like a soak in a freestanding tub to make you feel removed from your daily routine. If possible, situate your tub close to a window to make you feel connected to nature. A freestanding tub is an excellent solution for a bathroom large enough to have a walk-in shower but can also work on its own, especially if you have another shower elsewhere in the house. When you hear “freestanding tub,” you might think first of a clawfoot tub, but there are numerous modern versions available as well. A freestanding tub will become the focal point of your bathroom, so choose one that draws the eye, and then design the rest of your bathroom around it. Available styles include French cottage, sleek modern, and even cast iron! Work with your bathroom remodeler to find the model that suits you best and works in the space you have.
With clean lines and a lack of clutter, a contemporary feel works exceptionally well in a bathroom. Sleek, sharp edges characterize this look – think quartz countertops, strictly rectangular cabinetry, and no molding. Polished chrome is often used for hardware because of its clean, shiny look. All white or light colors are most suitable for a contemporary bathroom and give it an open feel. A monochromatic color scheme can make the bathroom feel large, even if the space is small. The contemporary design is typically minimalist, with no clutter or frou-frou details. Storage is designed to keep items off the surfaces to preserve a clean look. With everything that can accumulate in a bathroom, this look works well to keep clutter at bay. If this look seems right for you, our design team would be happy to talk with you about incorporating contemporary elements into your new bathroom.
6. Ditch the Tub
Getting rid of the tub in the master bathroom may seem crazy at first, but it is a trend that has gained momentum throughout recent years. Many homeowners want to maximize utility from their space, so they plan their remodeling efforts around function first. That means removing a rarely used bathtub to free up space in an otherwise cramped bathroom. In a room where every square inch counts, shifting from a bath to a shower may allow you to add other features, such as a second sink, or it may free up the room so that the remaining elements are not piled one on top of the other. Going tub-less is not for everyone, but it might be the right choice for you. Don’t be afraid to try something unconventional. If you are intrigued by the idea of a tub-free bathroom, we can work with you to make it happen.
7. Bright And White
All-white bathrooms are a great way to bring a dated bathroom from the past to the present. When you choose white everything–cabinetry, walls, and trim – the entire bathroom lacks contrast from object to object or surface to surface. Factor in chrome fixtures, mirrors, and windows, and the lines blur into each other. The result is that the space seems larger than it is– a bonus if your bathroom is small to begin with. White on white makes a clean, elegant statement that can work with any style, from traditional to modern and everything in between.
8. Yours & Mine
While bathrooms with two sinks are relatively standard with new construction, older homes are more likely to have just one sink in the master bath. More and more people prefer double vanity sinks since nearly 50% of couples’ partners are employed; you may find that you get ready for the day simultaneously. If space allows, adding another sink to the master bathroom is a significant update that may even improve your relationship! Having two sinks would mean you could brush your teeth without bumping elbows or spitting toothpaste on the other one’s hand. You are free to be as clean or as messy as you’d like on your side. Side-by-side sinks are a good option if your bathroom has at least 6 feet available for counter space. The larger vanity may even give you extra storage space.
9. Have Fun With Your Tiling
Tile comes in various shapes, sizes, and colors, allowing you to personalize your new bathroom. Colorful tile can add a pop of color to your bathroom, giving you a chance to bring a little bit of your personality into the bath. In an otherwise white bathroom, tiling just the shower in, say, bright turquoise, really makes it stand out. If you like the look of glass tiles but shy away from the cost, consider tiling just one wall to get the feel of glass tile without the total expense. For a more traditional look, stick with a neutral tile color. Depending on your budget, you can tile the shower alone or extend that tile to the walls. Play around with different shapes to find the one you like best – tile comes in hexagons, rectangles, squares, and even irregular shapes. With so many options available, the choices are almost limitless. There’s no doubt you can find the tile you love at a price that works for you.
10. Personal Spa
Whether your space is large or small, consider transforming your bathroom into your own personal spa. It is, after all, the only room in your house in which you are practically guaranteed privacy. With a large tub for soaking, you can relax in peace. You can even upgrade to a massaging whirlpool tub or add a shower with a steam function. Use gentle lighting to create a peaceful atmosphere. Utilize the space around your tub for bath salts and scented soaps. If you have the room to do so, leave some floor space open to create an open-air feeling. But, even with limited square footage, you can capture the feel of a spa. Plan storage solutions so that your countertops will be free of clutter, add a white noise machine or some gentle background music, and you can have a mini spa all to yourself.
