If you’re researching master bathroom remodeling ideas, you’ve probably come across an overwhelming number of designs. Quite a few of these design ideas are purely cosmetic, and add no real value to your home. Given the relatively limited space bathrooms have, the best bathroom design ideas should strike a good balance between beauty and function. Eren Design and Remodel narrows these ideas down to a chosen few.
Modern Toilet – Prioritize updating the fixtures you use everyday, starting with the toilet. A toilet that’s too old will definitely need an update, and not just in terms of looks. Newer toilets use water much more efficiently, which can help save on your utility costs. Consider models with hidden water tanks, as this can help reduce the toilet footprint and increase the available floor space.
Open Shelves – Storage is an essential part of bathroom design. However, too many drawers and hidden shelves can make the bathroom seem smaller. In addition, if you’re looking for something specific – perhaps a favorite towel – checking multiple drawers and cabinets can be frustrating. Instead, consider open shelves as your primary means of bathroom storage. Not only does open shelving make the bathroom look more open, it also improves accessibility.
Grab Bars and Universal Design – If you’re caring for elderly relatives or are considering aging in place, bathroom shower designs that incorporate universal design are a plus. A curbless shower area or a walk-in tub complete with grab bars will make the bathroom more accessible to family members with limited accessibility, and has the added benefit of significantly increasing your home’s value.
Natural Lighting – There are many ways you can get natural light without compromising your privacy. If you want to keep regular-sized windows, consider glazing with textured or obscured glass, or perhaps a row of narrow windows that span one (or even two) exterior walls. Glass blocks can achieve the same effect without looking dated. Alternatively, consider sheer curtains or similar window treatments that allow natural light in while keeping your bathroom private.
