Bathroom / February 1, 2018 / Kristina Blakely.
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.
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.
Prospective home buyers often value bathrooms greatly, but a home not having a good mix of bathrooms might sell poorly. Full and three-quarter baths in a home are often more attractive than half-baths at home sale time, for one. And home buyers with children often want home bathrooms with tubs for the kids and showers for the adults. However, as the size and amenities in a bathroom grow, so does the cost.
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.
