Bathroom / February 6, 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.
Since bathrooms are spaces that we use everyday, their importance is far greater than we give it credit for. From bright and cheery to sophisticated and imposing, modern bathrooms have long gone beyond the limit of space. These modern details transform dull bathrooms into fantastic relaxation and refreshing spaces.
Traditionally, choosing furniture for a modern space meant staying within the Art Deco, Shaker or Mission styles. More recently, Scandinavian-inspired products have also been included in this category. Whichever design your bathroom furnishings are, try to ensure that they are as simplistic as possible and have a clearly defined shape.
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.
