Aside from the bedroom (and on occasion, the living room), the bathroom is the only other place where you can act the way you want without inhibitions. That being said, it’s practically a no-brainer to make that particular space radiate “you” as perfectly as possible.
For instance, if you subscribe to a minimalist aesthetic, then a modern bathroom design is for you. Characterised by bold, geometric patterns mixed with angular and flowing designs, as well as an emphasis on high-quality materials, the modern motif is both a great aesthetic and functional upgrade. Here are a few tips on achieving that look.
Suspend your furniture – The foremost hallmarks of modern bathroom design are simplicity, minimalism, and cleanliness. All this can be achieved by employing a few visual tricks, particularly wall-mounted bathroom furnishings. Aside from choosing a beautiful sink or cabinet, you may want to opt for a recessed bathroom shelf that frees up much floor space for a sleeker, clutter-free look.
Geometry all the way – Another distinguishing factor of the modern bathroom design is the prominent use of geometric shapes on virtually everything—from rectangular mirrors and cabinets to oval sinks and other accents in various shapes. This means everything you put in, even that corner shower footrest, must be geometric in nature to perfectly radiate the modern look. A manufacturer like Ripple Systems provides pre-formed, ready to tile shower niches, bathroom shelves, and footrests for homes across all Eastern States.
Clever colour play – Although most modern bathrooms have simpler colour schemes, “modern” doesn’t necessarily equate to “less is more.” Your bathroom can still have splashes of colour, provided the hues are perfectly coordinated. Cool tones like white, black, grey, or blue are generally recommended, though you can still use any colour you want as long as you weave that colour scheme all throughout your whole design when picking your fixtures.
Light it up – A modern bathroom without good lighting is no good at all. Your bathroom must be lit with abundant natural light, such as by means of a skylight. Amp up the lighting by installing larger mirrors and windows along with glass showers and bathing stalls. The end-result should be a brighter, more welcoming atmosphere due to the copious amounts of natural and artificial light being bounced back and forth the room by the glass.
Keep these tips in mind when designing your bathroom, and you should be all set.
