The bathrooms of today are built to last. As a matter of fact, the tubs and showers from Baths By Bee are backed by a lifetime warranty! However, that doesn’t really matter if you design a space that ends up looking tired and outdated after just a few years.
If you’re installing a new bathtub or shower, it’s important to choose details that are timeless. Not only will it ensure you love the look of your bathroom for years to come, it will also increase the value of your home.
Here are a few bathroom remodeling tips to ensure you get the timeless, modern bathroom you’ve always wanted.
Choose What Will Work for You
The first step is deciding if you want a bathtub or a shower. A timeless bathroom is one that will work for your family for many years to come.
Growing families will appreciate a traditional tub and shower combo. They make bathing little ones easy, and they make bathing animals, like dogs, easier too.
If you’re looking for a spa-like look in the bathroom, or you have teens who haven’t used a bathtub in years, you may want to consider a shower.
Have mobility issues? Choose a walk-in bathtub, or a tub with a removable insert.
Choose the Right Color
No matter what kind of tub or shower you choose, it is important that you choose the right color. Trends come and go. That’s why powder pink and blue bathtubs are no longer popular. Instead, choose a neutral color, like white, off-white, or light gray.
Natural materials are popular in the bathroom, but they can be high-maintenance. Instead of using granite or marble, choose acrylic that looks like granite or marble.
Don’t forget about tiles! Traditional tiles require you to clean the grout regularly to keep them looking like new. Choose acrylic tiles in a timeless style, like subway tiles, to keep your bathroom looking fresh.
Choose the Right Accessories
Accessorizing your tub or shower is another way to make sure it looks modern in the future.
Skip the shelving that hangs from the shower head and choose shelves that are built straight into the surround. If you want to use a seat in the shower, choose one that’s built-in, and of course, a shower door always looks more luxurious than a shower curtain.
Walk-in tubs look timeless with modern fixtures. You also have the option of using a removable insert, if you prefer the look of a tub-and-shower combo, but you’re afraid of tripping and falling in the bathroom.
You have a lot of choices if you want your bathroom to look timeless and modern. Contact Baths By Bee to discover exactly how you can modernize your bathroom for the 21st century!
