Fortunately this doesn’t have to mean a compromise on style. The secret is to introduce cleverly designed pieces that serve a specific function and look beautiful too. Often a product that is well suited to a less mobile grandparent is ideal for the younger members of the family as well. And products that are designed with the limitations of both in mind are the key to creating a bathing space that makes everyone happy.
One of the easiest ways to create a modern look in your bathroom is by largely sticking to a monochromatic color scheme. This classic combo looks sleek and sophisticated, and never goes out of style.You don’t have to incorporate every shade of the monochromatic rainbow. It’s possible to focus on creating an ultra-clean white space or to experiment with various hues of gray. Just mix up the space with a few different prints and patterns to keep the room from seeming too one-note.
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.
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.
