Bathroom / January 16, 2018 / Rayne Boyer.
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.
Mid-century modern design is architectural, furniture, graphic and interior style of the mid-19th century 1933-1965. Geometric shapes, natural colors and straight lines are all part of mid-century modern design. Bathroom furniture is a great place to start when designing your bathroom. Create a focal point by placing a modern chair in the corner or even a small sofa. Look for patterns and colors that fit into those categories when looking for what type of faucet, mirror and fixtures you are choosing to place in your modern bathroom.
Dive into the deep with this season’s favourite blue. Rich, inky indigo (above) will add a dramatic splash of coastal chic when teamed with sea green. Keep it modern with a voluminous contemporary style freestanding bathtub as the centrepiece and team with clean-lined chrome accessories.
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.
