#1. Try A Floating Vanity

Open, airy, and ideally suited for contemporary spaces, floating vanities are a trendy design decision that many homeowners are experimenting with. Floating vanities provide you with more floor space and can make your bathroom seem even larger, which is always a bonus in our books.

#2. Add A Skylight

One of the best bathroom remodeling tips that’s also very affordable is to add a skylight. 

Skylights help bring natural light to the space without the need for any window dressings, meaning you can have that Villanova sunshine streaming into your bathroom all day long.

#3. Let The Light In

If you can’t swing a skylight, you can still keep your space feeling bright and airy by utilizing as much window space as possible. In addition, if you want that light and airy feeling, you can stick with lighter paint colors and plenty of glass.

#4. Treat Yourself To A Soaker Tub

A true sign of luxury, once you add a soaker tub to your master bathroom, you never regret it. You can go with something nostalgic like a clawfoot bathtub or stick with something modern and sleek. Either way, this is a master bathroom idea that is hard to get wrong.

#5. Rainfall Shower Head

One of the best bathroom remodeling ideas that’s also very affordable? Rainfall shower heads!

We get it; if you’re not a  fan of baths, you’re probably not going to love the soaker tub idea. As an alternative, have you ever considered a rainfall showerhead

Luxurious and statement-making, a rainfall showerhead could be exactly what your master bathroom needs to take it from average to luxurious.

#6. Heated Tile Floor

Speaking of luxury, we love the idea of adding heating to your tile floor. Plus, it’s perfect for in the cooler months in Villanova—once you have a heated tile floor, you’ll wonder how you ever survived without it.

#7. Use Unique Color Combos

While we love a modern white bathroom, playing with color can be a great opportunity to add something new and interesting to your space. Whether it’s a bright blue vanity, an emerald green accent wall, or a vibrant art piece, don’t be afraid to add color to your space.

#8. Experiment With Shower Tiles

Just as your current master bath might play it safe with color, it’s also too common to play it safe with shower tiles. To shake things up and get out of your comfort zone, consider something like mosaic tile or even colored tile.

You can try elaborate patterns for your tile, or you can experiment with different colored stripes. Whatever the case, this is an easy way to make your bathroom stand out.

#9. Tile Walls

You don’t have to reserve tiles just for your floors and showers. You can also do full tile walls. This is a great eye-catching option if you’re using more high-end tiles like marble or quartz.

#10. Go Monochromatic

If all the mentions of color and bold patterns don’t speak to you, you’ll be happy to hear that monochromatic bathrooms can also have a stunning result and are relatively easy to design and build. 

Using one color throughout your entire bathroom, these master bathroom remodeling ideas simply require you to paint your walls, ceiling, and vanity all in one color—easy and impactful.

#11. Play With Archways

Depending on how elaborate your bathroom remodel is, it might be hard to start playing around with the architecture of your space, but if adding archways to your design is within your capabilities, this might be an idea that is worth looking into for something bold and different, like a rounded or arched doorway.

#12. Gold Fixtures

If you want to automatically give your master bathroom an elevated feel, gold fixtures are the way to go. From your shower head to the sink faucet, gold fixtures make a statement. If gold doesn’t speak to you, you can always consider something like chrome or black. Either way, finding fixtures that suit your bathroom feel will help give the space a more cohesive look.

#13. Try Wallpaper

If wallpaper has you flashing back to memories of your grandmother’s bathroom, think again. Wallpaper has recently become very popular in Villanova for its ability to add color, shape, texture, and pattern to a space. While wallpapering an entire master bathroom might be a lot, consider an accent wall of wallpaper.

#14. What About A Fireplace?

That’s right, homeowners are installing gas fireplaces into their master bathroom, and we can’t think of anything that screams luxury more than sitting in a soaker tub next to a fireplace. 

It’s one of the most unique bathroom remodeling ideas, but it’s for sure an upgrade that’ll boost your quality of life and the resale value of your bath. 

#15. Add An Extra Cabinet

Very rarely is the vanity enough for all you have to store in your bathroom. All the lotions, hair products, towels, and other toiletries need to remain handy, but still hidden from view. An extra cabinet is everything you need to store these things and avoid breaking the vibe and beauty of your bathroom.

#16. Use Patterns To Define The Space

Lack luster bathrooms rarely made it to remodeling magazines, and for good reason. If you want to avoid a boring bathroom, like the ones in gas stations or cheap restaurants, you’ll want to use a beautiful pattern to spice up the space and make it truly yours. Whether you choose a pattern for a new tile floor, a new backsplash, or a wallpaper, patterns will make your bathroom much more welcoming and beautiful.

#17. Simplicity Can Also Work

Simplicity can often bring with it a sleek and luxurious mood. A simple tile work that’s cohesive with the entire space can tie the room together and actually increase its aesthetic appeal. A simple, predictable design can bring a lot of comfort and familiarity to your new space, ideal if you’re not someone who likes big changes.

#18. Add Plants

Bring in some plants and flowers to your bathroom and create a cozy and comfortable bathroom. Sure plants are great to have anywhere in your home, but they’re particularly good in bathrooms because this wet environment will help them thrive.

#19. Add A small Carpet

I know what you’re thinking… but no, you’re not adding a huge carpet that’ll cover all the floorspace. Instead, add a carpet right near the soaking tub so when you’re done with taking a bath, you can step on a soft, warm, comfortable, and safe spot. Bathroom mats will absorb the water, and you’ll just need to take wash it once every few weeks.

#20. Use Gadgets For Increased Comfort

Adding gadgets in your new bathroom will skyrocket the functionality and comfort of your space. Some gadgets you should consider are incorporated speakers, towel warmers, intelligent toilets, heated floors, digital shower controls, and more!

#21. A Large Soaking Tub

I’m not talking about your average soaking tub, but a HUGE soaking tub that’ll really allow you to fit comfortably and relax, fully covered by hot water. Of course, such large tubs will require two water fixtures to help you fill it faster, but the comfort it brings is totally worth it. Sure, your water bill will jump a notch, but no one said you’ll fill the soaking tub every day after work. Or… will you?

#22. Get a Wet Room

Delimitate the wet room from the rest of your bathroom and enjoy a bathroom that’s not always humid and wet. Get a nice exhaust fan in the wet room to ensure all the moisture doesn’t stay trapped there, and lower the chances of mold or mildew to appear in your home!

#23. Sauna

If your remodeling budgets allows you, a sauna is one of those upgrades that you can’t miss. Saunas became the definition of relaxation, and we bet you’d love to have one for yourself. Saunas can work on wood, electricity, or gas.

#24. Increase Its Accessibility

If you’re a senior homeowner, one of the reasons you want to remodel might be because your bathroom is not completely accessible and doesn’t match your needs anymore. Adding a couple of handrails in the walk-in shower or close to the soaking tub to help you hop in and out are essential. In fact, many of our senior clients don’t think twice when we tell them about the anti-slip tiles and handrails they can get.

#25. Tub and Shower Combo

If you’re working with a rather small space and you want the comfort of both a walk-in shower and a soaking tub, a tub and shower combo is the perfect solution. This might be a bit outdated or look cheap in some people’s eyes, but as long as it fits your needs, who cares?
