Modern Bathroom Design for Today and Tomorrow
Modern bathroom design is, strictly speaking, not quite the same as contemporary bathroom design.
They share some similarities though, mostly based on an appreciation of simplicity, order, clean lines and a lack of clutter and frills.
Space Statements in Bathroom Designs
A sense of space is hugely important in this interior design. And more importantly, empty space. Where there are a minimum of objects to focus on, every piece gains in importance.
An expanse of beautiful hardwood floor free of furniture and even rugs, a space on a wall devoid of pictures and simple architectural elements all make a statement. Where you follow the principle that "less is more", it allows you to go big and bold in a few choice areas!
The dividing wall between this beautiful master bathroom and bedroom hosts a gas fireplace that warms both spaces.
A very generous dual shower has an external glass wall, flooding the shower with natural light.
His and hers toilets are screened with frosted glass doors allowing for privacy yet still letting light through and blending with the adjoining shower.
Even in a small bathroom, this uncluttered look can be achieved. For example, a frameless shower or large frameless mirror will blend in seamlessly.
Sleek, low profile toilets, basins and vanities which are wall mounted guide the eye horizontally and visually expand a wall.
Plus, it leaves the floor space free of clutter. Note: An un-tiled floor without grout lines will add to this illusion. There are amazing concrete products available on the market to create a beautiful look.
Post-modern design saw a move away from the restrictive rules of modernism. There is now an element of humor and energy and the emphasis is more on comfort and lifestyle than on pure function. Minimalism is not carried through so rigidly anymore.
Furniture and contemporary bathroom vanities have a sculptural quality and become a piece of art. The style can be high-tech or even industrial, yet always graceful and stylish.
When borrowing from the past, designers give elements a contemporary twist: bolder colors or shapes whilst showing restraint in how the elements compete with one another. The aim is always to create a pleasing whole.
