Top 5 Bathroom Remodeling Ideas for a Modern Look

Are you ready to update your bathroom from tired to trendy? Dreaming of a modern look with improved functionality? Bathroom remodeling can improve the look of your room AND the value of your home. In fact, this project is one of the best ROI home improvement jobs you can undertake. Need some inspiration? Here are 5 bathroom remodeling ideas you can use in your home.

Install a frameless glass shower enclosure


Also known as seamless glass shower doors, this design statement consists of tempered glass that requires no framing to sustain. This feature gives the shower a clean, modern look that allows the bathroom design to flow uninterrupted throughout the room.

With a frameless shower enclosure, you can enjoy a number of benefits. The lack of distracting edging around the glass gives your bathroom a more open and airy feel. In addition, you enjoy greater functionality – the door swings both in and out, and the shower is easier to clean.

Choose from a number of styles and looks to match your design preferences and highlight the other design features in your bathroom when you select this upscale look for your home. Just make sure you hire professionals to install it. Installation can be complicated in order to ensure the stability and seamless look of the shower.

Install a freestanding bathtub

If you want to give your bathroom a spa-like feel, you may want to upgrade your bathroom with a freestanding tub. Unlike built-ins, this design features a tub with all four sides open to the room. This position makes them a focal point of a modern bathroom, immediately drawing the eye to a style that can be customized to your design preferences.

In addition, freestanding tubs are relatively easy to install and give you the flexibility to place your tub anywhere you want in your bathroom. That gives you more options for creating the look, and the bathing experience, you desire.

Go bold with tiling

If you want a modern look with your bathroom remodel, you may want to upgrade your tiles with a bold and bright look. Bathrooms are ideal for tiling.  You can use them not only on the floor but on the walls, on the ceilings, and in the shower. That gives you lots of options for making a statement with your remodel.

Here are some options for adding a pop of color or making an eye-catching focal point with tiles in your bathroom:

  • Choose bright colors for a backsplash
  • Use wide tiles on the floors
  • Brighten your shower
  • Select textures and patterns that stand out

If you hire design-build contractors like those at Reliable Home Improvement, we can help you to identify the bold tiling that will best fit your preferences, needs, and vision. In addition, you can reduce your workload by getting help throughout the entire process of designing and building your bold and beautiful new bathroom.

Upgrade your lighting choices

Lighting is often overlooked as a design element in any room, let alone bathrooms. The reality, however, is that the light fixtures you choose can make a big difference in whether your bathroom feels modern or tired.


In order to get the right amount of lighting, incorporate about 50 lumens of lighting per square foot to give your space the look and feel of natural light. How you deliver this brightness will depend upon your design preferences. Here are some ideas for giving your space a unique and inviting look:

  • Choose LED lights for eco-friendliness and lighting versatility.
  • Add lighting around your shower and vanity to brighten those areas when in use.
  • Incorporate recessed lighting for a modern look.
  • Add accent lighting to highlight important design elements.

Install a Floating Vanity

Securing your vanity to your wall instead of your floor has a number of benefits for your bathroom. One of the first is an ultra modern look that will catch eyes and create appeal.

However, this setup also has a practical benefit: It gives you access to the entirety of the floor under the vanity. That can make your space feel much bigger than it actually is. It will also make keeping the floor clean much easier.

Other advantages: Add radiant flooring if you want it; customize the size and look of your vanity, and even add storage underneath the vanity.
