Perhaps no other room in the home is better suited for a contemporary transformation than a utilitarian bathroom. In a room that features multiple practical fixtures, the modern credo of “form follows function” is particularly apt. Contemporary bathroom remodeling lets you incorporate the latest high-tech bathroom products into the design without sacrificing style for function. From faucets and fixtures to patterns, palettes and products, here are the latest trending contemporary and modern bathroom remodel ideas and pictures.
An antique claw-foot tub might not match your current decor but a freestanding tub can still fit in with your style. The crisp lines with a rectangular design or the smooth slopes on an oval tub can suit your soaking needs and also be the centerpiece of your bathroom oasis.

Determine how much you can afford to spend on your remodel to determine the extent of the changes you can make. If your budget is on the low end (i.e. $1,000 or less), you’ll want to stick to cosmetic changes, such as new fixtures or a new sink, and new paint. If you have more to spend, you can focus on larger changes, such as adding tile, a bigger shower, or a window. Again, it all depends on your budget.
Right now, one of the biggest trends in bathrooms is also one that budget DIYers can pull off with style. The trend is using old dressers as sink pedestals. You simply cut out the top of the dresser to accommodate a sink insert, cut into or remove interior drawers as necessary, and cut holes in the back for plumbing. These “dresser sinks” can sell for thousands of dollars in retail stores, but you can easily make your own with a budget dresser, some patience, and the right tools.
Be adventurous. Design treatments that would look over the top in other parts of the home are fine in the powder room. Deep dark hues, such as burgundy and eggplant, play well in these small spaces. Not that adventurous? Limit dark hues or unusual colors to wall paint. Pricey materials such as vessel sinks, custom floor patterns, and stone counters won’t be as hard on your budget because you won’t need as much as you would in a larger bath.

Your creativity will show with adding or replacing floor tile and wall tile with a bathroom remodel. The choices of polished or textured, subtle or bold, patterned or solid and single- or multi-colored are just the beginning of your options. Modify the traditional brick pattern to install subway tile vertically, or consider a herringbone layout to add visual interest to simple tile designs.
