New Paint

Applying a fresh coat of paint is a great way to make your bathroom seem more modern. Picking colors like white, light gray, and other light neutrals can help give the room a modern look as well as provide an open canvas to work with when it comes to art, accessories, and other elements you’ll add after the paint dries.

New Backsplash and Trim

Adding a new backsplash and replacing the trim can create a much sleeker look. If your backsplash is dated, updating with glass or porcelain can also give your existing sink area a new look and feel.

Although you might not think of them often, things like towel bars, soap dispensers, and other minor accents can help bring your modern design together.

New Mirrors

An old-style mirror will clash with a modern design scheme. Try updating the look with a mirror that features a frameless or thin frame design. This will help bring a sleek, modern style to your bathroom makeover.

 Change Out Linens

Having white or off-white linens is another easy upgrade you can make to your bathroom that will create a modern style without breaking the bank. Towels and shower curtains look better with a clean, white appearance. You’ll also want to keep your linens and towels design-free, as solid colors fit better with a modern bathroom.
