Keep it neutral and make a splash with accessories

Choose neutral colours for your bathroom walls and tiles. Soft and subtle shades of white, yellow, gray and beige are the best options for bathroom colors. You can add some spirit and colour to the space with accessories in bold colours like red, blue, green and even black. A neutral color gives your bathroom a soft and cozy look that is welcoming and relaxing. In addition if resale value is a concern having plumbing fixtures in bubble gum pink isn’t exactly a selling feature.

One of the most modern ideas for a contemporary looking bathroom is a curbless shower. Even though a curbless shower requires more space than the traditional shower head, it’s more fun and chic. The concept behind a curbless shower is to place the drain in a location so the water drains quickly so no water runs out of the opening. A curbless shower can also be ADA accessible so this upgrade can also make it easier for you or your family if disability is a factor. Also because people are staying in their houses longer it may even help you the home owner as you age.
