Bathroom / January 22, 2018 / Eva Cardwell.
A neutral palette teamed with white sanitaryware is a classic combination that will never date. Add a contemporary touch with a single large-scale tile design for the floor and walls to unify the different zones within the space and incorporate “future-proof” furniture such as handrails and shower seats with a modern aesthetic that are designed to make bathing safer.
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.
Futureproofing your bathroom by making it accessible to older people is a practical trend in modern bathroom design – possibly because more of us are now living in multi-generational households. Products such as low-slip floor tiles, lower level baths and furniture and accessories that are designed to make bathing easier for all can be incorporated into any scheme.
A well thought-out spruce-up of your bathroom can actually be a big step towards creating a harmonious home. How better than a well-designed shared space, to show how much the different generations care for each other?
