The hi-tech Tact shower, for example, features an iPhone app for remote control, LED display with raised, illuminated, tactile push-button controls making it ideal for anyone with a visual impairment. In fact, it has been approved as such by the RNIB.Similarly, wall hung sanitaryware and basin units can have all the visual appeal of a contemporary state of the art bathroom, but can be mounted at a comfortable height for easy use by elderly family members including wheelchair users. Designs with softly rounded contours that are a safe and stylish alternative to sharp corners are ideal for both young children and older adults.
Simplicity is a rule of thumb for modern design. Make sure that you are keeping open and organic space free of clutter. Use built-in shelving and cabinetry to hide unwanted personal items. Leave all toiletries and novelty items out of your bathroom space, this is a place for relaxation and clean design, don’t clutter it up with things that are unnecessary. Choose tile and backsplash with geometric shapes to add interest and character without sacrificing minimalistic design.
Space – and how we use it to best effect – is as much an interior design trend as any other. Bathrooms are often compact in size so wet rooms and walk-in showers are an increasingly popular way to open up the room. They’re also easy to use by the young and old alike. Add style with statement showerheads and designer taps.
Since the bathroom is often thought of as one of the most valuable rooms in your home, it’s only natural to want to think long and hard about how to make the best design changes. Those looking into modern bathroom ideas will want to strike a balance between creating a sharp-looking space and making sure it doesn’t feel too sterile.
