Bathroom / January 11, 2018 / Tiffany Vann.
Less is truly more when it comes to modern spaces. In this school of design, rather than thinking of negative space as something empty that needs to be filled, it’s seen as an active detail in creating a minimalist aesthetic. The key to pulling off this look is making every design element count.
Space – and how we use it to best effect – is as much an interior design trend as any other. Bathrooms are often compact in size so wet rooms and walk-in showers are an increasingly popular way to open up the room. They’re also easy to use by the young and old alike. Add style with statement showerheads and designer taps.
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.
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.
