When taking on a remodel project in your home, either to add value or flair, the bathroom is one of the most popular choices. Over the last decade, one of the most popular bathroom styles has been “Modern.” Simplistic lines and geometric shapes and patterns highlight this style. It is not too difficult to pull off, and it gives off a very clean and sophisticated feel. The concept of the modern bathroom isn’t limited by space either and can take your bathroom from frumpy to fantastic easily.
What is Modern?
Modern is dictated by the mid-century modern design movement, which incorporates geometric shapes and patterns, straight lines, and natural colors. Bathroom furniture is also prevalent in the design mixture. You can easily create a great focal point simply by implementing a modern style in one corner of your bathroom. Square sinks, tubs with strong geometric lines, and faucets that complement are what you should be looking for.
Keep it Simple
Simple is the rule for modern design. There is no room for clutter in this style. Focus on open space and minimalist features like built-in shelves and cabinets that hide personal items. Incorporate tile backsplashes and hidden spaces for toiletries to give the appearance of a clutter-free room.
Simplistic Design Examples
- Arrange a collage of geometric mirrors to create a pattern.
- Set small white pots on built-in shelves to give a floral feel.
- Decorate walls minimally with modern prints.
- Add a Full-Length mirror to add the appearance of extra room.
- Incorporate wood and cement features when feasible.
- Keep colors white and gray and all variant gradients in between.
Standalone tubs are a hallmark of modern bathroom designs. The key is to keep the placement and size geometrically balanced. Strategically place the tub in a spot that provides a sense of continuity with the other elements in the room. Skip the traditional oval shape and go for rectangular if you really want to jazz it up.
Add a Touch of Nature
Adding a small green plant to your modern bathroom design will add a slight but not overpowering pop of color. It connects the indoor accents to the outdoors.
Lighting is Key
Keeping with the geometric shapes and patterns, choose your light fixtures accordingly. Fixtures with definitive hard lines, rectangular or spherical shapes work best. Also, consider adding in a skylight for refreshing natural light. Natural light helps to enhance the clean and simple look of your bathroom and also nicely reflects off the neutral whites and gray accents. LED lights will also give a much better feel to the room as well as help you save one energy costs
