Design tips for a modern bathroom

Modern interior design works beautifully in any bathroom. The pared down look, which makes up a big portion of this design style, lets your bathroom features shine and makes for an interesting, clean and sleek space.

High-tech fixtures and shiny drawer knobs and handles combine style with function, and go well with the modern look.

Streamlined sensibility

Characterized by clean lines and subtle textures, modern designs take on a 'less is more' concept so you'll need to forego ornate details such as fancy molding and trimming, and opt for the minimalist approach instead. Pick out cool textures such as glass and marble, and employ them with symmetry and balance in mind. You may also incorporate warm wood textures for contrast. Dark wood finishes evoke handsome appeal, while lighter wood colors offer a more casual style. Make use of wall tiles set horizontally to highlight the room’s modern lines. 

Colors and accents

Don’t be afraid to introduce color in your modern bathroom. While neutrals, particularly stark color schemes such as black and white, impart an unmistakable modern vibe, bold colors give a fun approach to the modern style. Put back some life in your bathroom by making use of vibrant colors as accents or by creating a feature wall with a vertical block of colored tiles set against the lavatory or shower area. You could also use bathroom décor to liven things up. Scented candles and fresh flowers provide an organic addition and soften the look. 

Modern fixtures

Have modern fixtures installed to complement the modern bathroom design.. High-tech fixtures and shiny drawer knobs and handles combine style with function. Lighting fixtures should be subtle but functional, providing adequate light without calling attention to itself. For an airy and expansive feel, use a glass divider for the shower area, this will further highlight your modern fixtures.
