New Year, new bathroom: 5 bathroom remodel ideas

December 14, 2020

A new year brings with it a desire to start fresh. Given everything we’ve all been through in 2020, a fresh start somewhere is welcome. You can start fresh with a remodel in your home. Even if you don’t want to gut your kitchen or living, a bathroom remodel can be a great way to give your home a fresh new look. VIR Construction has five bathroom remodel ideas for you as we enter the new year.

Subway tile

If you’re looking for a crisp, clean feel in your bathroom, subway tile is a great way to go. These simple tiles provide a contemporary look that never goes out of style. You’ll also enjoy a surface that cleans easily and holds up well against the humidity of your bathroom. Whether you’re looking for a classic white, want to spice up your bathroom with some color, or would like a simple tile pattern, you can get subway tile in just about any color you can imagine.

Focus on the floor

While a major overhaul can be exciting, it might not always fit in the budget. You can give your bathroom a completely new look by simply changing up your flooring. Take out the drab flooring that you have now and had a pop of color with a beautiful vinyl pattern or colorful tiles. You can also add some bath mats that provide additional color, patterns, and themes.


Make a statement by going simple. Get rid of the elaborate sconces, ornate towel holders, and the gold-plated cabinet door handles. Replace each with subtle pieces of hardware around the bathroom that create a consistent theme. Additionally, you can go simple with a monochromatic color scheme. This color scheme makes it easy to match bathroom accessories and necessities.

Navy blue neutral

Navy blue is the new neutral. Paint your cabinets navy blue to create a color pallet that can take on a variety of complementary colors. You can easily incorporate white or gray walls with silver or gold hardware around the bathroom. If you choose to go big and bold with a new navy blue wall, the rest of your bathroom will come together easily with your preferred accents.

Build a Wet room

Nobody likes a cramped shower area. You can transform nearly half of your bathroom into a shower space by tiling a large area that includes your bathtub then put up a glass (clear or frosted) partition. This makes it easy to create a seamless walk-in shower that provides an expansive shower that feels like its own room.
