Bathroom Ideas for Modern Homes

Today we’re spoilt for choice when it comes to renovating our homes. There’s no particular ‘look’ that everyone feels they just have to have! As with clothes fashion, a huge range of styles is acceptable and it’s more a case of narrowing down what you like and what will suit your needs.For bathroom ideas, the internet is a great start, with sites such as Pinterest and Houzz providing inspiration through photos that can be made into your own digital scrapbook. The websites of bathroom renovation companies such as Ultimate Kitchens & Bathrooms also contain photo galleries to inspire you.

Modern Bathroom Design

If the traditional method of tearing pictures out of magazines to create a paper scrapbook is more your thing, an abundance of publications is available in newsagents to give you bathroom ideas.

As you collect pictures that appeal to you, you’ll soon find patterns or common themes emerging. Perhaps you will be drawn to minimalist-style bathrooms, with sleek cabinetry and large floor and wall tiles, a frameless shower and plain but elegant tapware; or maybe you’ll be attracted more to an organic look achieved by, for example, using timber accents in the joinery or an egg shaped freestanding bath.

Another way to cement what you want in your new bathroom is to visit display showrooms such as that of Ultimate Kitchens & Bathrooms. Showrooms give you a chance to see the different looks that can be achieved through various cabinetry, tile and fixture choices, and to chat with a knowledgable display showroom Consultant about materials and colours.

By doing the initial research, bathroom ideas will start to consolidate. A word of advice, though – you can get caught going round and round in circles after a while, becoming too bogged down in the myriad of options (and getting confused and overwhelmed in the process). That’s when it’s time to enlist the help of a specialised bathroom Designer who can sit down with you, ask you questions about what you think you like, and begin the actual process of planning the details of your own dream bathroom.

So contact us today or visit our showroom and let an Ultimate Kitchens & Bathrooms designer turn your bathroom ideas into your bathroom reality.
