Bathroom / January 19, 2018 / Tiffany Vann.
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.
Modern Nordic (above) is influenced by Danish hygge (cosiness) and Swedish lagom (simplicity and restraint). Use this look to create a calm retreat away from today’s frenzied technology and social media-dominated world. Combine architecturally clean-lined pieces – such as the Linea range of wall-mounted cupboards from bathstore – with soft, uncomplicated colours and organic, natural materials such as wood and stone.
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.
A walk-in shower that provides easier access for granny, for example, can be recessed to the ideal height for parents bathing toddlers and young children. Likewise, a low slip tiled floor option means that elderly grandparents and boisterous toddlers are all equally catered for when it comes to safety in a wet environment. Choose a design that is bold and contemporary and you will please the style conscious members of the family too.Leading UK retailers such as bathstore now offer the Easy Bathing range, thoughtful designs specifically intended to put safety and accessibility as high up on the agenda as contemporary style and aesthetics.
