Bathroom / January 26, 2018 / Clara Mcclelland.
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.
A fresh blue and white coastal colour scheme is the ideal backdrop for products with nautical vibes such as contoured sanitaryware and cupboards and ship’s ladder style towel rails. Here a bold geometric tile serves as a visual reference to the points on a compass, and a space-saving, walk-in “harbour” bath has been incorporated for safe, easy bathing for everyone.
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.
Less is truly more when it comes to modern spaces. In this school of design, rather than thinking of negative space as something empty that needs to be filled, it’s seen as an active detail in creating a minimalist aesthetic. The key to pulling off this look is making every design element count.
