Contemporary style incorporates of-the-moment materials and up-to-date design trends. As if creating a space that’s worthy of posting isn’t renovation motivation enough, opting for a contemporary bathroom design aesthetic—think sleek lines, natural materials, a neutral color palette and others —is the best way to balance today’s trends with elements you’ll love for years to come. And the best part is the look is one that suits spaces and budgets, both large and small.
Colors And Materials
Contemporary bathrooms are all about neutrals, though you might see some contrasting bathrooms, too, for example, done in black and white, graphite grey and white or something like that. If you’re sticking with shades of white and grey, choose your textures wisely. The vertical subway tile, paired with woodgrain floors and shiny glass shower doors do the trick, without the need for loud hues. Moody bathrooms done in mostly black are also welcome, they look very seamless and stylish. Black fixtures are a great idea to add that modern dramatic feel to the space but if you don’t like that, just mix the metal finishes to achieve that fresh look.
Picking the materials of your bathroom renovation is a delicate dance, but when working with a contemporary space, the sky is the limit. Mix metals with stone, glass, and wood for an end result that is undeniably contemporary.
