3 Ways To Modernize Your Current Bathroom

When people buy homes, they feel that the bathroom it comes with is what you’re stuck with. 

When it comes to giving your bathroom a facelift, you don’t necessarily have to spend hundreds of dollars to do so. 

A little goes a long way in the bathroom so don’t feel like you have to settle with an outdated bathroom.

With a little bit of effort and some procurement of new materials, you can transform an old, drab bathroom into one that is welcoming, clean, and modern. Here’s how:

New Paint

Applying a new wall color with a few buckets of paint is not only cheap but produces drastic changes so you can get a totally new look with just a few dollars. 

Typically, bathroom walls are often painted with very light, pastel colors with a few exceptions of dark tones every now and then. 

Paint companies such as Behr offer great previews of what a modern & contemporary bathroom wallpaper should look like, as well as popular color palettes used in them. 

Before you choose a paint color, be sure that it complements all the other elements of your bathroom such as cabinetry, fixtures, and textiles. 

That way, you’ll be sure to end up with a harmonious finished product that is your new bathroom.

New Fixtures

The bathroom is host to a lot of fixtures. 

There are cabinet handles, towel racks, faucets, showerheads, and more. 

Take a look at your current fixtures and see how they make your bathroom look and feel. Do you feel some fixtures feel outdated? 

The good news is that there are many different options for fixtures including different finishes as well as styles.


Chrome fixtures are a great way to bring a modern touch to your bathroom. If stainless steel just isn’t bright enough for you, chrome is the method of choice. 

Their shiny characteristic can brighten and liven up any bathroom and is a popular go-to choice for most fixtures styles.

For a small bathroom sink with a shallow depth, consider a low-arc chrome faucet such as our very own A-6550-C single handle bathroom faucet

Brushed Nickel

If you are not too fond of shiny & bright fixtures, brushed nickel may be perfect for you. 

Without sacrificing elegance, brushed nickel offers a toned-down impression that is much more subtle. 

Highly-versatile and applicable, brushed nickel is also a very popular choice in modern bathrooms around the world. 

The A-6550-BN is a perfect example of a brushed nickel bathroom faucet for a deep basin bathroom sink. 

It’s high-arc allows more clearance for your hands while washing and has a beautiful, sophisticated, and minimal finish to complement your modern bathroom.

New Lighting

A bathroom should be a place of relaxation and lighting can help with that.

Different light settings can significantly impact the mood of your bathroom. People generally do not enjoy bright fluorescent lights for their bathrooms and would much rather prefer something more enjoyable.

A modern trend we’re seeing these days are wall-mounted lights. A perfect place for them is right next to your bathroom mirrors. 

Lighting fixtures with adjustable brightness settings are a plus too if you don’t mind dishing out a few extra bucks. Keep the lights nice and bright when you’re shaving or applying makeup or dim the lights down to set the mood for a nice evening bath.
