Contemporary style focuses on form and function, with the perfect blend of beauty and modern convenience. From custom cabinets with Euro flair, to luxurious additions that take your bathroom to a whole new level, here are the nine key elements of a modern bathroom design as we head towards 2018.
1. Euro Bathroom Cabinetry
Custom cabinets are an essential and functional component to any bathroom, but if you desire a truly modern master bath, consider European style cabinetry. Minimalist by design, Euro cabinets like the Vero Espresso Collection from Willow Lane Cabinetry feature frameless birch doors, straight lines, and zero ornamentation. These high-end cabinets come standard with soft close door and drawers, and have a stunning espresso finish that will compliment any contemporary bathroom design.
2. Large Walk-In Shower
When it comes to designing a master bathroom, nothing compares to a large luxurious shower. Imagine a cascade of warm water raining down, as you step inside your inviting open shower, surrounded by gorgeous tile and frameless French glass doors. Walk-in showers epitomize modern design, with the ultimate combination of utility and style.
3. Soaking Tub
A spa-inspired master bath is right on trend, and no contemporary home spa is complete without a deep soaking tub. Like a large walk-in shower, the addition of a soaking tub adds to the peaceful ambiance of your space, and will encourage you to put your feet up and relax at the end of a long day.
4. Double Vessel Sinks
Add double the va-va-voom factor with a set of vessel sinks to top off your high-end cabinets and countertop. A contemporary designer’s dream, vessel sinks are available in almost any material, including ceramic, glass, steel, stone, copper, or marble. Two sinks are always better than one, if space allows, and vessel sinks serve their purpose with an extra dose of modern style.
5. Glass Tile Backsplash
Compliment your custom cabinets with a trendy yet timeless glass tile backsplash. Willow Lane Cabinetry offers a large variety of beautiful backsplash tile, including Cristezza Club Glass in contemporary colors like Ruby Red, Dark Slate, Teal, Black, and Gray.
6. Contemporary Hardware
The best accessory for custom cabinets is custom hardware to complete the modern look. Choose from knobs and pulls in satin brass, polished nickel, oil rubbed bronze, brushed chrome, gun metal, and other popular finishes, in a style that compliments your contemporary theme.
7. Stylish And Energy-Efficient Light Fixtures
It’s a fact — good lighting is important in every room of the house, but especially in the bathroom. A modern master bath should have soft, focused light fixtures that adequately illuminate without being overbearing or harsh. Choose from LED (Light Emitting Diode) or CFL (Compact Fluorescent Lights) bulbs for energy-efficient ambiance in contemporary glass and metal fixtures.
8. Ceramic Tile Floors With Radiant Heating
Ceramic tile is the most popular choice for contemporary bathroom flooring. It’s stylish, waterproof, and easy to clean. On the downside, it’s also cold to the touch, especially when temperatures drop in fall and winter. If you want to keep your feet warm in the bathroom without affecting the whole house, take advantage of modern innovation and upgrade to heated floors in the bathroom.
9. Large Seamless Mirrors
A mirror is a necessity finishing touch to every bathroom, and helps to visually enlarge your space. For a contemporary touch, opt for a large, seamless mirror above high-end cabinets. This stylistic choice eliminates distracting lines that disrupt the flow of the room, and creates even more open space than your average framed mirror.
