Modern Bathrooms
Nancy Dalton

Bathroom is not just a place for personal hygiene but also a place to relax the mind and the body. Whirlpool tubs, body sprays are some of the luxuries of a modern bathroom. People who don't have ample time to visit a spa frequently are turning their bathroom into a personal mini spa.

Using colors is the most inexpensive and effective way to enliven a bathroom. Painting even a single wall in some vibrant color can make your bathroom look younger and cheerful.

Never mind if you have a small bathroom. You can make it look bigger by installing large mirrors on the wall. Also use sliding doors to save space. Have shower cubicles in place of bathtubs. All this will save enough space.

Faucets are also an important part of the bathroom. Don't opt for cheap faucets. They may look tempting but in the long run, they will prove to be expensive, as they will have to be replaced pretty soon. See that your faucet has anti-scald feature, as this will prove to be beneficial with kids around.

Most modern and contemporary bathrooms have floor-heating systems. It's a luxury you can't afford to miss. Wouldn't you want to place your feet on a welcomingly warm and toasty floor after having a nice bath. Electric floor heating system can be installed under most type of tiles like ceramic, stone, granite etc. This system is not only affordable but also safe.

Consider flowering plants in the window and framed family photographs on the wall. How do you like the idea? Wouldn’t it make the bathroom cozy and cheerful?

Since most of the remodeling budget, around 31%, goes in bathroom cabinets, they are also worth considering. There are two types of cabinets- framed and frameless. Framed cabinets are the popular cabinets in America. They are also called standard cabinets. Frameless cabinets are cheaper because they use less material. They also look more stylish. Frameless cabinets occupy lesser area than framed ones. As far as installation is concerned framed cabinets are easier to install.
