7 Refreshing Design Ideas for a Bathroom Makeover

Posted on: September 29,2016

From old, wooden barn doors to cast iron mirrors, the new rules in bathroom design have left nothing off limits. With so many different unique styles being found in modern bathrooms, it’s easy to add your own personal touches to spruce up your look.

If you’re thinking of making some changes to your style, here are some refreshing ideas for your bathroom makeover!


Add Shapely or Statement Tile

Swap out your traditional tiny floor or backsplash tiles and try something a little different.  Curvy tiles or graphic tiles provide a richer look paired with plain, solid walls. A hand-painted design or bold pattern can be an inexpensive way to make a big impact, especially in a smaller space!

Coordinate Accents

For a real designer touch, pair different accessories together by utilizing matching textures or materials.  Pair your metal wall outlets to your light fixtures or sync the pattern of your towels with your medicine cabinet’s frame. It will do wonders for the overall aesthetic of the space!

Salvage a Sliding Door

Not only a great way to save space, but a sliding door that glides on a wall-mounted track has become a popular alternative to traditional bathroom doors. Salvage an old barn or schoolhouse door that adds a rustic feel to a modern trend. Even better, one with glass can add natural light into a windowless bathroom.

Paint Two Toned Walls

If you’re trying to achieve a cozier feel, try two-toned paint colors from one wall to the next or above and below a chair rail.  Try two popular contrasting colors like black and white or choose two light pastels for a warmer feel. A simple coat of paint can add a lot of character to the room.

Incorporate Shiplap

For a coastal or nautical look, try an exposed wood shiplap on accent walls or the ceiling.  You can even use Corian sheets cut the same to achieve this look inside the shower or tub without worrying about water damage. Textured walls like this give the room a whole new feel without cluttering a smaller space.

Dress Up Your Mirrors

Whether your mirror is adhered or hanging from the wall, dress it up a little with a unique frame.  Try tiles that accent the rest of your space or incorporate wood or cast iron materials repurposed from old products to add some real character. With the right touches, your mirror can become the focal point of your bathroom.

Choose a Sculptural Tub

If your dream bathroom involves a luxury tub, consider a tub with an organic shape or sculptural design. The sleek, elegant lines of these styles are eye-catching to guests, while the various shapes can provide even more comfort while reclining in the tub.
