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.
Freestanding tubs are a staple for modern bathroom designs. Balance is key, so keep things symmetrical and sharp by strategically placing your tub in a spot that enhances the feng shui of your bathroom. Traditionally bathtubs are the familiar oval shape, however give a rectangular or pedestal tub a try.
