7 Modern Features to Add to Your Bathroom When Remodeling

If you’re planning on remodeling your bathroom soon, you’re probably starting to think about what kind of features you want to add during the process. These days, there seems to be so many options out there, it can be a bit overwhelming for homeowners. But have no fear, we’ve compiled some of our top suggestions for modern features to consider adding to your bathroom when remodeling—garnered from some of the top experts in design, including our own experts at Silva.

1. Modern Spa-like Designs

Modern, spa-like designs are becoming more and more popular in bathrooms because “people no longer see the bath as a utilitarian space and more as an experiential space. They’re looking for spa-like experiences as well as a kind of theatrical beauty for what used to be a very interior and private space." — Young Huh

2. Custom Tile

“Custom tile is a great way to showcase your unique style in your home. Tile designs can fully customize your bathroom or any area of any room in your home. Our clients don’t generally conform to the standards of the everyday homeowner; they want more out of their custom designed home. Every homeowner deserves the right to be treated as a unique individual, and that’s what we offer.” –Silva Construction Group

3. Exposed Shower Plumbing & Marble

“[In bathrooms] we’re incorporating more exposed shower plumbing. The industrial look pairs beautifully with a white, modern marble.” — Highlyann Krasnow

4. Improved Lighting

“Many bathrooms built or remodeled in the 80s, 90s, and early 2000s have very poor lighting. Improved lighting in the bathroom may mean the addition of windows, a skylight or solar tube, or the addition of modern light fixtures.” – Silva Construction Group

5. Free standing tub

“If you have the space, consider including a free-standing tub in your bathroom remodel. Free-standing tubs are a high-ticket item that add a sculptural element to the room, and their simple, modern, and clean look makes a huge impact. Not only do they add a feeling of luxury and sophistication, they’re a must-have when it comes to creating your spa-like sanctuary.” – Roomhints silva construction custom tile and bathroom. free standing white tub, natural light and minimalist design

6. Eco-Friendly Appliances and Fixtures

“Today’s new toilets, sinks, shower heads, and faucets reduce water consumption. Many homeowners are focused on remodeling for the purpose of reducing their carbon footprint and making their home more sustainable with fewer natural resources. New bathroom appliances and fixtures go a long way in achieving that goal.” – Silva Construction Group

7. Pewter and Gunmetal Hardware

“Pewter and gunmetal is the trend we are loving. It’s not as harsh as pure black or specific as brass or gold, but it gives fixtures some texture and depth.” – Highlyann Krasnow Bathroom remodeling is different for every homeowner.
