10 Ways to Incorporate Your Signature Style into Your Bathroom Remodel

Posted by Ben Thompson on 08.13.18

One of the top benefits of remodeling any space in your home is the ability to make it suit your individual style preferences.  When you purchase a resale property, there’s bound to be a room or two (and sometimes the whole house) that has finishes and fixtures that you just don’t like.  Even when you’ve lived in a home for 5-10 years you may find that your personal tastes have shifted over time and you now have the urge to make some updates. 

Remodeling gives you the opportunity to start with a clean slate and you can make the selections within a space to make it suit your style.  Bathroom remodels offer many areas where you can do just that.  Take a look at our list below along with photos of bath renovations for inspiration.

  1. LightingThompson-remodeling-Sophisticated-Bath-Transformation8The lighting in your bathroom easily becomes one of the main focal points.  In this bathroom, our clients selected wrought iron fixtures with Edison bulbs to give the space an industrial vibe. 
  2. SinkThompson-remodeling-Modern European Master Bath21Another main focal point can be your sink, especially if you choose a vessel sink as our clients did here. This sculpted ceramic sink lends itself perfectly to the Modern European feel of the space. 
  3. FaucetThompson-Remodeling-Historic-Home-Bathroom-Remodel2Think of your faucet as jewelry for the sink or as the finishing touch to an outfit. It's a small detail but makes a big impact to the overall style in the space. The faucet shown here is retro classic with a modern edge and really stands out against the white/gray color palette.
  4. VanityThompson-remodeling-modern-and-clean-bath5The main storage in your bathroom is provided by your vanity.  It's also an anchor in the space and therefore an important piece to set the overall design aesthetic. The vanity pictured above is modern with clean and simple lines, yet offers a lot of storage space with three large cabinet areas. 
  5. MirrorsThompson-remodeling-Classic White Bathroom Remodel12Mirrors offer the perfect opportunity for personal expression. They can be very ornate or so simple they blend right into the wall. To give this bathroom a classic feel with a rustic edge, we built a pair of custom mirrors from distressed Ghost Wood.
  6. HardwareThompson-Remodeling-Master-Bath-Makeover6Hardware typically plays a supporting role to your faucet and lighting by complimenting metal or other finish selections. Here, we've used antiqued bronze handles to accent the beautiful wood grain of the shaker style vanity.
  7. FlooringThompson-remodeling-Classic White Bathroom Remodel5Similar to the vanity, your flooring selection is an important anchor to your overall design aesthetic. The Eramosa Ice ceramic tile floors flooring shown above provide a natural, almost beachy feel to this bath.
  8. Shower tile designThompson-Remodeling-Mosaic-Tile-Beauty13A great place to incorporate color and pattern is in your shower with tile. Create interest with a decorative band of tile, floor or event a tile niche inset. In the shower above, a blend of blues, ambers, and brown mosaic tiles gives the room a coastal vibe.
  9. BathtubThompson-remodeling-Modern European Master Bath12A free-standing soaker tub can take center stage and become the star of your bath. Here, an oval tub with ornate claw feet create a luxurious European feel to the space. 
  10. ShelvingThompson-Remodeling-Sleek-White-Bathroom-Remodel1Exposed shelving makes for a great accent in your bathroom.  You can choose simple shelving that appears to float, like those shown in the bath above or, you can select a set with decorative supports such as wrought iron pipes.
