It’s a new year, and this is a great time to look at making changes or transition in your life. This could even include some remodeling of your house.
As a house gets past 10, 20 or 30 years old, it can be a good idea to at least consider a remodel of some rooms of your home based on your family’s use, needs and activities. But one room that could certainly use a remodel no matter what your family situation is, is the bathroom.
Your family could be bigger or smaller than when you moved in; you could have no pets or more pets, you could be the neighborhood party hosts or the neighborhood bookworms, homebodies and Netflix binge-watchers. No matter how you use your home or what rooms you tend to favor with your lifestyle, the bathroom’s role in your family is pretty consistent. When you think you are ready to do a remodel, the bathroom could be your very first choice.
And if you want to modernize and update and not just upgrade your bathroom, here are some trends for 2017 you might want to consider.
Having a design that is harmonious and consistent – such as a lot of wood and very little else – can actually look dated now. Time to think out of the box and combine several materials in the same space – consider ways to combine metal, ceramic, wood and stone.
Mixing also works with color schemes. And this is not necessarily in an art-deco kind of way, but solid and complementary colors to provide great color contrast and give some parts of the bathroom some punch. Consider some Mediterranean color schemes, like uses of browns and blacks as well as greens and blues in the right combinations, and in classic or unique patterns. Or maybe a combination of a classic design with modern color patterns? Monochromatic color themes are definitely out – creative flair and complementary colors in vogue.
One of the best ways to use a small space is by using the walls, up to the ceiling. But many bathrooms don’t leveraging this valuable space. Consider cabinet and storage space that goes up your bathroom walls to maximize the space. A narrow, tall cabinet between two vanities can clear a lot of space that usually may get cluttered with various bottles and jars.
Do you have a lot of clutter on your counter when you have electric razors, electric toothbrushes, curling irons, blow dryers and the like? Imagine being able to keep your devices in drawers or cabinets because electric outlets are in there with them. Moving outlets off the wall and inside your cabinets or drawers keeps the devices off the counters and opens up the space in dramatic ways.
Not only are threshold-free showers, side-mounted faucets and comfort-height toilets making life easier in the bathroom, they are also quite fashionable. No matter your family dynamic, having the bathroom be convenient, easy and quick to utilize is a big help, so anything that can make life easier in the space is always a good thing – and now you can make it trendy!
During winter, bathrooms are cold, especially after hopping out of a warm shower. Tile is cold and often the towels are not very comforting when they first touch our skin. You have to love technology, with radiant heat tiles for floors and towel warmers in towel rods and racks that keep us from getting chilled every time we take a shower or bath!
While it remains dangerous to have electric appliances near water sources in the bathroom, you can safely have music in your bathroom thanks to wireless speakers and Bluetooth-enabled devices on mobile phones and tablets that can sit feet away from the bathtub or shower, if not even outside of the room altogether. Add some ambience or have the morning radio show on while you brush your teeth.
These are just a few of the trendy ideas you can consider for modernizing and remodeling your bathroom space. A professional remodel firm has all the information you need to help you learn all the new trends and can help you create the modern bathroom that fits your needs, style and budget.

“WISA's work on our kitchen remodel and basement upgrade exceeded all expectations. They made significant concessions to come to an agreed upon price, there were no hidden fees, started when we needed them, completed prior to expected completion date and their quality of workmanship and materials were second to none.…”
“This is the second project WISA has completed for me, and once again, they did an absolutely fabulous job. Daoud and Waris were fabulous with their estimate and communications, and Eduardo (the carpenter) made sure everything was perfect. I love my new counter and will call them again for the…”
“WISA stands behind their work, which is high-quality. Waris and Daoud are very communicative and were very helpful in getting work done on time. Some of their rates were a bit higher than other competitors, but for the quality of service and work, it's worth it!”
“WISA Solutions is a top notch contractor. We reached out to numerous contractors for our kitchen, foyer and half bath renovation. WISA was by far the most responsive, detailed and affordable of the three quotes that we received. Working with Waris and Daoud was a breeze. This was our first…”
“Great Job! Excellent work at a fair price. WISA remodeled our two upstairs bathrooms. We received 3 quotes for this job. WISA was a bit lower than the others, but not by a huge amount. What impressed us was their presentation. We had a chance to visit to a similar…”
