Shower Or Bath?
A major decision when you are renovating a bathroom is whether to have a shower or a bath. If you are really going for the modern look, then you will probably find that a shower is the far preferable option. However, even once you have decided on that, you will now need to think about what kind of shower you feel is best for your bathroom. Showers themselves come in many different kinds and shapes and sizes, and you would do well to spend some time carefully considering the different kinds. You might feel that shower enclosures are the best option for a modern look – or you might want a more traditional shower but with a modern twist. This is one of the bigger decisions, so be sure that you really know what you want.
All bathrooms need tiling, in particular around the bath or shower area. Most people fail to put much thought into the tiling. However, this can be a really useful area in which to bring out the look you are most going for. If you want a modern-looking bathroom, then finding simple and minimalist tiling is probably going to be your best option. Alternatively, you might decide on a tile with a simple floral design or another pattern – but try to avoid anything too over the top, as it can detract from the whole room.
