Bathrooms are a special place in your home. And though a lot goes on in a bathroom that we don’t need to talk about, what you need to know is that this is the perfect space for incorporating modern design elements.
Since the rise of the pandemic in 2020, many people have been spending a great deal of time in their homes. And correspondingly, also in their bathrooms. As such, making these areas as comfortable as possible has become a major priority for Americans across the country.
A bathroom should not only be functional, but it should also offer you a comfortable place to relax and refresh yourself. After all, people spend a lot of time in the bathroom. And whether just starting the day or ending it, you want your bathroom to offer both a sense of comfort and style while not sacrificing any functional elements.
If you’re interested in sprucing up your special space, the following will offer a few ideas that you can incorporate to make your bathroom much more stylish and comfortable.
For a traditional element with a bit of a twist, adding a bathroom vanity can offer a separate area to serve an additional function in the bathroom while also offering a little bit of modern style as well.
Ambiance is one key element when it comes to designing interiors. And with modern vanities, you can choose from geometric designs, minimalist vanities, and other sleek variants which offer discreet storage compartments.
Believe it or not, tiling doesn’t have to be square. In fact, concentric designs and other styles which include a variety of shapes can be used to set a mood in your bathroom space.
Additionally, teaming light and dark colors between the wall and the floor can generate a hypnotic contrast that will entrance your guests. Remember, black is popular again in many home design elements, so don’t be scared to go dark as well. And you might be surprised how dramatic tiling can completely transform your space.
Bathroom Spa Décor
There’s nothing like a relaxing day at the spa. But if you can’t bring the masseuse to your house, you can at least feel like you’re having a spa day when you enter your bathroom.
Adding natural stone elements can mimic the feel of a Club Med experience, while also modernizing your space in the process. And natural stone can be used in the form of floor tile, countertops, wall art, and even as textured wallpaper.
We all have issues storing enough towels and other needs in small bathroom spaces. But you can still add a storage area without sacrificing space while also adding style.
Adding an inlet to your bathroom or building a storage area under your sink can be done with modern materials. And you can also use stylish elements that help to conceal these areas while not sacrificing space, such as wallpaper designs that defy depth perception and make the room appear larger.
You might be surprised to learn that your tub, sink, and toilet doesn’t all have to be white. In fact, recent trends have begun to stir where many homeowners are bedazzling their bathware with patterns and woven fabrics.
And though this is something that you might think came straight out of the ‘70s at first glance, you’ll be amazed at how it can transform your bathroom into a trippy retro experience.
Textiles don’t always have to be used in industrial settings. In fact, many newer forms of art incorporate the use of various textiles. And these can also be used as bathroom décor.
For example, hanging wall art can be used to give a linear perspective within your bathroom and tie into other corners and edges, creating depth even in a smaller bathroom space.
Perhaps you already like the structural design of your bathroom. Maybe you like the paneling, brick, or unfinished appeal. If any of these are the case, using bold colors to give contrast can highlight those areas that you love and give your bathroom a focal point that engages the eye.
Colors should also complement each other such as deep blues accenting white background colors. Or brilliant reds over gray backgrounds may also suit your tastes as well.
All in all, there are infinite possibilities when it comes to designing your bathroom for style while keeping with functional elements. But any choice you make should be indicative of your personal taste.
