Bathroom / March 3, 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.
Since the bathroom is often thought of as one of the most valuable rooms in your home, it’s only natural to want to think long and hard about how to make the best design changes. Those looking into modern bathroom ideas will want to strike a balance between creating a sharp-looking space and making sure it doesn’t feel too sterile.
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.
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.
