In these days, the bathroom is no longer a neglected room as many people consider their bathroom as a very important place in their home where they can get rid of the stress of a hard day. The modern designed bathrooms include new elements such as a place for TV, 4 and 5 shower heads in a single shower stall, soap dispensers, freestanding baths and towel formers.
The modern bathroom designs accentuate some main concepts which are straight lines, the use of neutral, white and black tones, and simplicity. Thus a modern bathroom is a combination of a high level of comfort and an elegant look. If you are going to design a modern bathroom, here are some tips that may help you.
• Clean Lines: They have a main effect on the décor of the bathroom and you need to check the outer shape of windows, mirror, counter top etc to make sure that they are well-matched. In the modern bathroom designs, the wavy outer lines are not trendy. The ideal selection is to use ovals or horizontal straight lines to get a bold and clean look.
The ovals give a delicate and consistent look to your bathroom. In order to match the lines, you can use a rectangular countertop, a rectangular or square sink, a horizontal large mirror etc and add horizontal lines to the bathroom. If you are going to ovals, you can match your oval window with the bathtub, curved counter top, mirror etc to blend with the scheme.
• Colors: If you want to go for a scheme with two colors and you have a small bathroom, choose white and a color such as bamboo green, light aqua, soft green, wooden etc to complement the white. In the case of a larger bathroom, dark shades like blacks, purples, reds, grays etc are recommended. Using patterns may shrink the bathroom space. But in the medium or large bathrooms, the ceiling may be painted or one can use tiles with designs on one wall.
• Lighting: It is playing an important role in small modern bathroom designs. White or off-white lights colors are the ideal options for bathrooms lighting. In small bathrooms, it is advisable not to install light fixtures above the countertop and have simply a small lamp. While in larger bathrooms, one can use small ceiling lights in any color as well as colored light fixtures to create an atmosphere in the bathroom.
