Contemporary Bathroom Design - Creating Future Classics
Contemporary bathroom design is of the here and now and reflects the latest design fashions.
That does not mean that it has to be updated regularly.
Contemporary design, if executed well, can be timeless in its elegance.
It is a trendsetter in its approach to utilizing new and exciting man-made materials, such as: bright metals, concrete, colored glass, Perspex, vinyl and more.
It does not mean that it follows fads slavishly though!
It's not afraid to borrow from the past either. It chooses the best from yesterday and it often applies old materials in a new and refreshing way and in new combinations.
Concrete installations are used to create stunning new shapes, to replace furniture or to create a custom bath or sink and to show off fittings.
It can be used on walls and floors and finished in a variety of ways, whilst still proudly displaying its characteristics.
Modern bathroom design is true to the materials without pretending they are what they're not and is mostly simple without unnecessary embellishments.
Metal in polished or brushed finishes are used for more than just towel rails or faucets:
Countertops, tubs, contemporary bathroom vanities and wall tiles all get the treatment and add some bling to bathrooms.
Tiles can be custom made. Water jets are used for precision cutting of tiles so you can create your own unique designs, incorporating a variety of materials.
No more off-the-shelf tiles only!

Technology in the bathroom is aimed at pampering!
You can find self flushing toilets with heated seats and infrared sensors, pulsating shower heads, ionizers, waterproof TV monitors... to name but a few.
Yet in all these advances, contemporary design is mindful of the environmental impact by using dual-flush systems, water- and energy saving devices and renewable resources in the choice of materials.
Natural wood finishes are in and a prime example of a renewable resource is bamboo - for modern bathroom vanities, floors and blinds.
To help you plan your environmentally friendly bathroom,
It is in love with simplicity without compromising on quality and luxury! It is not into hiding the bathroom away either - internal walls are removed or minimized to create open plan rooms.
It is mindful of the time constraints of today, to spend less time on cleaning and tidying. Clutter is reduced and storage is carefully planned.
It is sleek and seamless and to some extent still based on neutral tones. However, it is quite prepared to play with color. Feature walls and architectural elements get the color treatment and wallpaper is back!
Have a look at your space. Instead of arranging fixtures around the walls, can you add an architectural element?
