A New Approach To Modern Bathroom Design

Author : Max Disley

Borrow design concepts from past decades, particularly mid-last century, to give your bathroom a retro refit with a contemporary twist. Huge, bold wallpaper prints, big pop-art patterned and textured tiles too as vibrant colour are, needless to say, the crucial components in generating a vintage vibe. The challenge is in producing a cool-not-kitsch atmosphere, so do not go overboard - a bit bit of '50s flair and '60s swing goes an extended way.

A range of funky designs have borrowed from the past even though translating the most productive shapes and colours into the stylish bathroomware on the market today.

Sinks are round, oval as well as amorphic; they're being fashioned in non-porcelain materials like resin. Free-standing baths, specifically the deep soaker, are the standout bathroom fixtures of the moment and are at their very best when their shape is contrasted against a coloured wall. Most are white but there's a trend coming via from Europe favouring patterned and coloured baths and sinks, tapware and showerheads. For the much less courageous, the "wow" factor could be developed with bright and bold accessories including shower curtains, coloured handles or soft additions in towels and washing aids.

Welcome towards the new industrial revolution in bathroom style, with shiny chrome, polished concrete and smoky tiled walls. Bathrooms are finding the stony remedy, with concrete, slate, granite and ceramic tile - as soon as relegated to outdoor places including driveways, exterior walls and paved pathways - now indoors.

These rock-solid materials, widespread in kitchens as a result of the recognition of industrial-style warehouse living, are also gaining decorating credibility in bathrooms.

Polished concrete in sinks and benchtops, even on floors, is beginning to show up now that modern day sealants are proving to final nicely. Stone or ceramic tiling can accomplish the same look and guarantee moisture resistance. Stark white stand-alone vanities or sunken baths add drama. Finish off the appear having a shot of bright colour by way of accessories, for example red towels and toiletries, for added contrast.
