Bathroom / January 11, 2018 / Aniyah Augustine.
Since many of the materials used in modern design have a tendency to come off as cold or even a little harsh, it becomes necessary to infuse a sense of warmth and comfort back into the room. One easy way to do that is by layering different textures throughout the space.Fortunately, a bathroom naturally lends itself to lots of texture. Start by anchoring the tub or shower with a plush rug or mat. Make sure the space includes multiple layers of soft towels. Top off the room with a few spa accessories such as fluffy robes to make it especially luxurious.
A neutral palette teamed with white sanitaryware is a classic combination that will never date. Add a contemporary touch with a single large-scale tile design for the floor and walls to unify the different zones within the space and incorporate “future-proof” furniture such as handrails and shower seats with a modern aesthetic that are designed to make bathing safer.
Dive into the deep with this season’s favourite blue. Rich, inky indigo (above) will add a dramatic splash of coastal chic when teamed with sea green. Keep it modern with a voluminous contemporary style freestanding bathtub as the centrepiece and team with clean-lined chrome accessories.
Choosing lighting is a crucial part of modern design style especially in the bathroom. There are plenty of lighting choices available to you. Modern design is all about lines and geometric shapes, so keep that in mind when shopping for light fixtures, windows, and placement of lighting. However, make sure to remember that the quality of the light is further more important than the actual light fixture. Skylights are great idea for modern bathrooms, because they add more natural light and interest to your bathroom.
