The design of bathrooms has undergone a big change in the last century. In the past, the bathroom used to consist of a bath, toilet, basin, and a few faucets, but now it presents an important room requiring the same attention as any other room. Nowadays, the new technology and the advancement of plumbing have lead to continuous sophisticated changes in bathroom designs. Traditional, Country, Shabby Chic, Contemporary, and Fantasy are the most popular styles of bathroom designs. And here we will talk about the traditional and the modern designs.
Traditional: Traditional bathroom can refer to Edwardian or Victorian style or to a standard white bathroom with basic sanitary ware and bath. There was an increasing demand for this style over the last decade. This style can go only with some particular houses such as old cottage or villa but won’t work in modern apartments. The focal piece in the traditional bathroom is the bath whether it is a free-standing roll-top or slipper bath which is installed on a dark polished floor.
Regarding the faucet, it can be wall mounted or free-standing one as both have a classy look. You can go for soft tones or bold colors when decorating the traditional bath. Always consider choosing curtains for the traditional bathroom. Hang some pictures on the walls. Put a chest of drawers or corner table and decorate them with scented candles, aromatherapy oils or flowers as they will make the bathroom a lively room.
Modern: The essential point in the modern bathrooms is to get the most of your available space. The modern bathrooms come with fitted vanity units, storage units, and cabinets to offer you the space you need. Add wall-hung furniture to your bathroom with finishes such as wenge, beech, and maple. It is advisable to choose wall-hung toilet and sink to save floor space.
Furthermore, concealed cistern units are beautiful than the standard close-coupled toilet. Shower baths are quite effective in making use of the space as they provide the comfort of both bathing and showering. Or you can consider walk-in showers since they are very popular in modern bathrooms.
The most common choice in the modern bathrooms is chrome and stainless steel. And there are many contemporary designs of taps and bath mixers. Feel free to choose tiles or paint colors with bold colors and contrast them with the chrome and the glass.
