Bathroom / January 18, 2018 / Aniyah Augustine.
Less is truly more when it comes to modern spaces. In this school of design, rather than thinking of negative space as something empty that needs to be filled, it’s seen as an active detail in creating a minimalist aesthetic. The key to pulling off this look is making every design element count.
One of the easiest ways to create a modern look in your bathroom is by largely sticking to a monochromatic color scheme. This classic combo looks sleek and sophisticated, and never goes out of style.You don’t have to incorporate every shade of the monochromatic rainbow. It’s possible to focus on creating an ultra-clean white space or to experiment with various hues of gray. Just mix up the space with a few different prints and patterns to keep the room from seeming too one-note.
A fresh blue and white coastal colour scheme is the ideal backdrop for products with nautical vibes such as contoured sanitaryware and cupboards and ship’s ladder style towel rails. Here a bold geometric tile serves as a visual reference to the points on a compass, and a space-saving, walk-in “harbour” bath has been incorporated for safe, easy bathing for everyone.
Fortunately this doesn’t have to mean a compromise on style. The secret is to introduce cleverly designed pieces that serve a specific function and look beautiful too. Often a product that is well suited to a less mobile grandparent is ideal for the younger members of the family as well. And products that are designed with the limitations of both in mind are the key to creating a bathing space that makes everyone happy.
