Bathroom Renovation Ideas | Bathroom Makeovers

Remodeling bathrooms can be hard. We all want our bathrooms to look nice but they have to be functional as well! There are also so many different design options out there and it is easy to get overwhelmed. If you’re ready to renovate your bathroom and don’t know where to start, have no fear, Avalon Flooring is here breaking down all the amazing style options for your bathroom makeover. 

Go Scandinavian 

We love Scandinavian design for a bathroom makeover because it transforms your bathroom into a spa-like atmosphere that we all covet! Scandinavian style is all about minimalism and curating an aesthetically pleasing but functional space – in other words, this design style is PERFECT for a bathroom. You can go with shades of gray or add a pop of color to create the perfect Scandinavian bathroom with a minimalist put-together look.

Stick to shades of gray and white to have a more modern Scandinavian bathroom that is as cohesive as it is functional.

Pops of color

Adding pops of color can be intimidating when designing any room let alone a bathroom. The easiest way to play with color in a bathroom is to stick to a color pallet before you even start designing. Know what colors you want to use for a bathroom and stick to solely these colors.

Go with different shades of the same family to get a more cohesive look!

Adding a pop of color draws attention to certain parts of a room and can brighten the entire bathroom. Stick with neutral choices and let one or two pops of color shine to emphasize a specific shade!

Accent Niche

So we all know about an accent wall but have you heard of an accent Niche? Bathroom Niches are little cubbies in a shower used for holding shampoo items and other bathroom essentials. This bathroom renovation is also a good opportunity to add some visual interest to your bathroom.

The Power of Penny Tiles 

Penny tiles are so versatile in a bathroom and can be used for a backsplash or even flooring. They can add a pop of color without being overwhelming and with many different color options available they really lend themselves to a designer’s vision.

Subway Tiles: A Classic Choice

Subway tiles are a classic design choice for bathroom makeovers. They are timeless and there are many different options when it comes to color, design and shape!

Vertical tiles elongate a room and are great for showers or backsplashes.

Wood Floor in a Bathroom?

We know what you are thinking, wood floors in a bathroom? Are we crazy? Surely the moisture and high water traffic will ruin the wood floors! 

Innovation is a beautiful thing and in 2021 you can get porcelain tiles that look as realistic as real wood! If you want more of a farmhouse or rustic vibe to the bathroom this is a go-to for a unique but aesthetically pleasing bathroom renovation idea!
