While it’s true that white and clean minimalist bathrooms are the norm, it doesn’t mean that we can’t have fun with designing and decorating our bathrooms. There are many bathroom styles to choose from, from Scandinavian to country. But, the most popular one next to a minimal design is a modern bathroom. A chic contemporary toilet and bath is in demand these days because it manages blend both form and function. Aside from being pleasing to the eyes, it also offers homeowners the convenience of having state-of- the-art features such as automatic and touch-free toilets and digital shower controls to name a few.

What are the best colours for a modern bathroom?

The colour scheme in your room can often go both ways. It could end up as something that you’ll cherish or something that could end up as a soon-to- be-dated, loathsome shade. In our opinion, to be avoid ending up with the latter, we suggest choosing the right colours with care and consideration. Do a research on some of the shades you have in mind, but if you don’t have any idea about which paints to use at all you can go for classic modern bathroom colours such as titanium, slate, charcoal (which is often used for hotels and spas), and the more risqué, but equally chic, aqua.

What are the most common mistakes made in a contemporary bathroom?

Making mistakes are common when it comes to a decorating project, but it doesn’t mean that it can’t be avoided. For example, designing a modern bathroom can lead to a lot of catastrophic mistakes because it always tends to involve something that is high tech or something completely new in design such as having ultra-modern additions such as touch-free toilets and digital shower controls, for example. This is why it is important to hire and consult a professional before you start a project (initially, you can also ask for advice using our free consultation page). Another common mistake is overdoing it in terms of design. We understand that your bathroom space shouldn’t be devoid of vibrant colours and patterns, but it can get too much. Our advice? If you love patterns, keep them small and, if you can, use reflective materials to make light bounce off them.

How do I pick the right tile size for a modern bathroom?

First and foremost, the most important thing to do when choosing and buying tiles for your bathroom is to count the number of tiles you will most likely require. Large tiles are great for big spaces, but if you are working with a small room, it is best to opt for smaller-sized tiles because not only are they cheaper, but they also give out the illusion of expanse. While purchasing the tiles; double check the sizes. Most bathroom tiles are sold not in inches but in centimeters. Some tile sizes also factor in grouting when calculating the size.

What’s the best mirror style for a modern bathroom?

Contemporary bathrooms are often associated with symmetrical lines that define the entire space. And in this room, a mirror isn’t just a practical feature, but an important element of the whole modern decor. Aligned with the wall tiles, the sink cabinet, and double closet with perpendicular lines, a simple mirror, with its floating appearance is the extra piece of furniture that complements the whole interior. The slim design of the freestanding bathtub also saves space in this small bathroom while creating a luxurious and warm atmosphere.
