Finally that time has come where you’ll be able to unleash all your creativity and put it into re-designing your home, or a part of your home. Have you decided to start your revamping project with a modern bathroom makeover? Here are 5 great ideas on how to modernize your bathroom and make it look like new again:
1. Tub And Tile Resurfacing
Even if your bathtub looks a bit old, worn, and out of style, there is still hope for it. Talk to a professional contractor offering bathtub resurface, NJ based, and see your tub and tiles shine again, looking modern and glamorous. Once any old caulk and surface grime is removed, the tub/tile surface can be sanded down and then refinished and sealed. In the case of tiles, a regrouting job can do wonders. Your tub with the tiles behind it, the tile surrounds in your shower stall, and your tile sink backsplash can all be resurfaced and refinished with a modern look at a much lower cost than buying and installing new!
2. Vessel Style Sinks
Modern bathroom sinks are largely vessel style sinks, which are a major break from the in-counter sinks of the past. On-counter sinks mimic the old wash basin of pre-indoor-plumbing days, so that the modern sink contains a touch of an antique spirit.
But the styles and materials available are truly impressive. Everything from simple white porcelain to etched glass and natural stone exists. You will have a wide variety of sizes and contours to choose among as well. And don’t forget to outfit your up to date sink with a quality brushed brass/chrome faucet and fixtures!
3. Natural Stone Countertops
Natural granite counters are as new as they are old, for they are always in style. The beauty and durability of granite is unsurpassed. That said, polished granite requires you watch over it to wipe up spills quickly and do annual maintenance to keep it looking its best. Engineered quartz counters, on the other hand, offer a non-porous surface that is virtually maintenance free (and quartz is nearly as popular as granite).
4. Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring
While the word “vinyl” may make some immediately recoil in horror, the fact is, many who do so have never seen luxury level vinyl flooring. Vinyl floor planks that mimic the look and texture of natural wood or bamboo but that are installed much faster and require little to no maintenance are far superior to cheap vinyl planks/tiles. This kind of flooring is perfect for the bathroom, giving it a homey look and feel without all the “fuss” of continually tending to wood planks.
5. A Wall Mount Toilet
Tired of cleaning around those hard to reach areas under and behind your floor-mounted toilet? Why not consider the wall-mounted alternative? Wall mount toilets are certainly trendy right now, but they have much more to recommend them. They take up less space, still provide plenty of legroom, often dispense with the visible tank behind the bowl, and come in both round, oval, and squarish shapes.
Some may feel wall mount toilets would create too much of a “public restroom look,” but many in-home styles differ significantly. Plus, there are wall mount styles that look just like their floor-bound cousins (back tank present and all) but simply attached to the wall instead.
