You’re ready to meet with a designer to discuss your ideas for remodeling your bathroom. You know you want something clean, sleek, and modern but that is also a warm, inviting retreat after a long day. Sometimes it can be difficult to blend the straight lines of modern design with the homey feel you seek, but our design team at Booher Remodeling Company in Indianapolis comes prepared to help you do just that.
Consider these six tips that we find help homeowners marry that blend of modern taste with the comforts of home.
1. Go neutral.
Many modern bathroom features are white and airy. But instead of doing everything a stark white everywhere, you can choose a few features to bring in a warming neutral color like a gray, beige, or tan. Many people choose these colors either for their walls, bathroom vanity, or even floor tile. You don’t want to go too crazy with color in order to preserve the modern touch, so play around with neutrals and see what happens.
2. Consider concrete.
From countertops to floors, you can find a bit of concrete in many modern bathrooms these days. And why not? Concrete offers a unique, modern, and industrial feel that pairs well with more inviting elements like wood, natural stone, or even decorative foliage.
3. Include both tub and shower.
According to Freshome.com, modern bathroom design doesn’t choose either a tub or a shower (and definitely not that fiberglass bathtub/shower combo you can find in about any home-improvement store). Instead, choose both. Install a freestanding modern bathtub as well as a separate walk-in shower.
4. Think straight.
Whereas traditional home design often features more ornate or curvy elements, modern design highlights straight, clean, and simple features.
5. Choose a statement piece.
Whether you purchase a unique chandelier to hang above your bathtub or you do a floor-to-ceiling subway tile feature wall, you want at least one design element that’s your “wow” piece.
6. Wood wins.
Choosing some wood elements for your bathroom is a very modern thing to do. Plus, it adds that layer of warmth you want. You may consider some floating bamboo shelves or even a natural wood vanity top. You have many options. However, due to all the water and moisture in bathrooms, we do recommend that you stay away from traditional hardwood floors. You don’t want to invest all that money only to see them warp.

We had Booher remodel our master bath and remodel our attic to add another master closet and a sitting room. The work was finished in April and I love this addition more every day. I think it was an excellent investment and I am so glad we did it.
Fantastic service and quality on our kitchen and bath. Customer oriented business and they aimed to please. Cost was reasonable compared to other companies. They estimated and planned very well and the level of communication was excellent. We are very happy with the results and would absolutely recommend them.
I highly recommend Booher Remodeling. I wanted an ADA bathroom and of the half dozen people I had in, they were the ones that seemed to understand what I wanted. They were professional, on time, and wonderful people to work with. They kept me informed at all times as to what was going on and made sure it was acceptable to me. I don't know how they did it but we ended up with a larger shower, larger water closet and larger clothes closet! We are very happy with our new bathroom.
Booher Remodeling is an Excellent Company! This is our 2nd Project they have completed. We had our Bathroom and Kitchen flooring removed and replaced with a Beautiful new updated flooring,all new trim and shoe moldings, all new water lines for the sinks,and washer, installed new access panel for shutoff valves in the Laundry area, painting of walls and baseboards.
The Employees, Management, Office Personnel and the Owner Represent a #1 Company. Thank you for your Services.
We are so very pleased with our newly-remodeled and more accessible bathroom! Booher Remodeling staff have been extremely professional, helpful, and friendly, from our initial meeting to the final sign-off. The demo and drywall crews, tiler, plumbers, electrician, and painters did superb work. Even the suppliers we dealt with had nothing but great things to say about Booher. A special hats-off to our project manager, Daniel Trusty, who went above and beyond.
