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.
Add personality by combining multiple shades of green with exotic wood grains – perhaps adding metallic finishes for a tropical glasshouse look. Decorative floor tiles in bold trellis and geometric designs such as the Hackney range from bathstore will anchor the overall look. And plants have a hugely positive psychological effect on our happiness, so include plenty of moisture-loving ferns and palms.
Mid-century modern design is architectural, furniture, graphic and interior style of the mid-19th century 1933-1965. Geometric shapes, natural colors and straight lines are all part of mid-century modern design. Bathroom furniture is a great place to start when designing your bathroom. Create a focal point by placing a modern chair in the corner or even a small sofa. Look for patterns and colors that fit into those categories when looking for what type of faucet, mirror and fixtures you are choosing to place in your modern bathroom.
