Remodeling Your Bathroom as a Contemporary Getaway


​A contemporary spa-like bath is a private sanctuary with luxurious features for busy Maryland and Virginia homeowners. If you are thinking about remodeling your bathroom, consult with an architectural design expert who can enhance your bathroom so it harmonizes with the rest of your home. According to a recent article by, remodeling a bathroom is one of the best investments a homeowner can make. Some of the latest bathroom design trends may appeal to sophisticated people living in Washington, DC, Maryland and Northern Virginia.

  • Add drama 

One trend in bathroom remodeling is to use black in bathroom faucets, tubs, tile and lighting fixtures as a contrast to the neutral décor. If you like the industrial style or the old art deco style or don't like your bathroom looking to stark or sterile, the dramatic trend might appeal. Other ways to use drama includes hanging a modern lighting fixture that serves as a piece of art.

  • Use ledges 

Another idea when remodeling your kitchen is to add ledges in the shower. Functional and practical features integrated into a stylish bathroom can add value. Tub-side shelving, as well as ledges in showers and behind vanities makes it easier for older homeowners to navigate the space.

  • Float a vanity 

Floating a vanity off the floor is especially attractive in a small bathroom space since it eliminates the vanity legs. If you are putting down exquisite flooring as part of your remodeling project, a floating vanity allows the floors to be showcased. One contemporary look is to intersperse lighted glass floor tiles in a hardwood floor design for a dramatic effect.

  • Use texture 

Another bathroom remodeling idea is to add texture to the space with river rock floors. Don't be afraid to use materials that were popular in the past such as glass block shower walls. Also, consider incorporating stunning 3-dimensional and textured art pieces into your bathroom design

Other ideas for making the bathroom stand out include installing a see-through fireplace between the master bedroom and bathroom. It's nice to relax in whirlpool tub beside a fireplace, especially during the snowy winter months.
