At a time when most of us have been staying home more than ever, it’s no wonder that you might have design build remodeling on the mind. The remodeling industry was already expected to grow by 2% annually through 2025 — and now that we have more time to fixate on every room, it’s likely that whole home renovations might become even more popular.
That being said, whole home remodeling isn’t your only option. In many cases, you can make a huge impact by focusing on just one space. For many homeowners, the main bathroom can be a source of frustration. While it should act as a spa-like oasis, it may be too cluttered to be as functional as it needs to be. Your design build remodeling experts can help you improve your bathroom, and provide suggestions on ways to add interest.
All-white bathrooms feel clean and fresh — which is why they’ve become so popular in recent years. But there can be too much of a good thing. If you know you want a white bathroom but want to keep it from feeling too sterile or bland, here are a few ways you can infuse some style into the design.
Install Some Subway Tiles
A popular element of many kitchen remodeling projects, subway tiles can also be used to great effect in bathroom renovations. Although many traditional styles of subway tiles are white or off-white, they can add interest to any space due to their dark grout. You can use subway tiles as a shower mosaic or continue the tiling throughout the bathroom space to give it a slightly more industrial or vintage feel. Even though you’ll still be playing with neutrals, these tiles will give the room more character from the onset.
Be Creative with Fixtures
Even if you love the look of white countertops, floors, cabinets, and walls, you can’t have every single element in the bathroom be devoid of color. A good way to add a pop of interest, even if it’s still in a neutral hue, is with your choice in fixtures. Your cabinet knobs, sink handles, grab bars, and light fixtures can easily allow you to add a bit of flare. Whether they be rose gold, polished brass, or even matte black, these fixtures will make your bathroom feel anything but boring.
Add Texture and Dimension
Adding pops of color with your sink or cabinetry can be a good way to make a bathroom look less mundane. But if you don’t enjoy the thought of a bolder hue in this space, you can add some visual interest with textural elements and extra dimension. Floating shelves, framed mirrors, area rugs, shiplap walls, or carefully chosen decor can make your design come to life — even if the room is mostly white in tone. You can always talk to your design build remodeling contractor to figure out how (and where) to add some interest without disrupting your neutral color scheme.
The Tub as a Statement Piece
Although some people think all they need is a shower, a bathtub is integral to a relaxing atmosphere. So if your design build remodeling company determines there’s enough space for a bathtub as part of your renovated design, you might want to consider making it more of a statement. A clawfoot tub or slipper tub can make any space look instantly more charming. Even if it’s an entirely white bathtub, it’ll totally stop the show — and provide a relaxing soak whenever you need to de-stress.
In the end, white doesn’t have to be boring. It all comes down to the design. We’ll ensure that your bathroom renovation or home addition becomes the pièce de résistance of your house. For more information, please contact us today.
