Is your current bathroom showing its age? Don’t let another year go by wishing you could update your space. It’s really not as hard, or as costly as you think to replace a bathroom vanity, paint your walls, or add decorative touches. We’ll show you how to say goodbye to your dated bathroom, and say hello to 2017 with this list of easy and affordable contemporary bathroom updates.
Replace A Bathroom Vanity
Chances are, the worst offender in a dated bathroom is the vanity. After all, it is the focal point of your space. Wanting a new bathroom vanity is simple. Choosing a new bathroom vanity is not always so simple. But it can be.
Willow Lane Cabinetry has an amazing selection of quality bathroom vanities starting as low as $350, with semi-custom features and accessories that let you create the perfect vanity for your bathroom. Options include Shaker, Raised Panel, and Recessed Panel designs in a range of beautiful finishes.
Bathroom Vanity trends lean towards functional style. It’s not enough to just look good. Bathroom Vanity organization is equally important. When you replace a bathroom vanity, keep storage in mind, and maximize the space you have available with wall cabinets, drawers, and shelving.
Pick The Perfect Color
Some colors just scream their decade. Like all decorating trends, colors come in and out of fashion. Think Avocado Green, Brown, and Harvest Gold in the 1970s, Mauve, Burgundy, and Colonial Blue in the 1980s, Lavender, Peach, and Hunter Green in the 1990s, and Sage Green, Butter Yellow and Orange at the turn of the new century. If your bathroom hasn’t been painted in the last ten years, it’s time for a fresh new coat of color.
Painting your walls is perhaps the most inexpensive fix you could make, and an easy way to quickly change the look of your space for the better. Popular bathroom colors today include shades of blue like Turquoise, Robin’s Egg Blue, and Teal, soft greens like Lime or Aqua, Dove or Steel Gray, and Greige (beige with gray undertones). Browse online sites such as Pinterest for inspiration, and test a large patch or two on your wall before you fully commit to a color. Also be sure to purchase a quality bathroom paint that is easy to clean, as well as mold and moisture resistant.
Add Contemporary Style With Accessories
When creating a contemporary bathroom, there are three important elements to include. Start by incorporating a bit of warmth by ditching those big, builder-grade mirrors with one or two smaller, wood-framed mirrors to personalize the space. Choose frames with clean, simple lines.
Natural elements such as granite countertops, ceramic tile floors, and textured cotton fabrics are also popular. Try adding a linen shower curtain in a minimalist pattern of stripes or soft paisley, or a cotton or bamboo Roman shade above the bathroom window. Then accent your room with crisp new hand towels in a complimentary color.
Last but not least, add a few industrial touches with vessel sinks, stylish faucets, decorative wall sconces, and steel baskets for gathering toiletries. A touch of the industrial is right on trend, and it’s the small details that make a huge difference in completing the look.
