Bathroom / January 17, 2018 / Kristina Blakely.
Modern interior design came about as a reaction to the ornate and almost baroque styles that came before it. As such, the main focus of this school of design is to act as the antithesis of of those other looks. Rather than having lots of details and embellishments, modern furniture relies on clean lines and stark contrasts.
The new serenity trend is inspired by the Japanese notion of Zen. Create a simplified, pared-back look that is the perfect antidote to the pressures of urban living with tonal colour combinations and natural wood such as raw oak for warmth. Oversized tiles (above) will minimise the amount of grout lines, which will make for cleaner open wall and floor areas.
While these three may be the most common, other natural elements can also help round out your bathroom design. Try to let as much natural light into the room as possible; if you have control over the home’s layout, consider making the bathroom a room with a view. On a smaller scale, try incorporating greenery into the space.
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.
