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.
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.
