Bathroom / January 17, 2018 / Crystal Lundy.
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.
Embrace the utility chic trend with a monochrome colour scheme, period-style sanitaryware and a roll top bath. Teaming industrial “brick” tiles in black and white with a bold geometric floor tile creates a modern twist on the classic Victorian hallway. For a safe environment and to reduce the risk of potential falls, opt for a low-slip option.
While these three may be the most common, other natural elements can also help round out your bathroom design. Try to let as much natural light into the room as possible; if you have control over the home’s layout, consider making the bathroom a room with a view. On a smaller scale, try incorporating greenery into the space.
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.
