If your master bathroom is stuck in the mid-2000s over-the-top time-warp, it might be time for a change. Since the master bathroom is probably the most used one in your house, it’s understandable you would want it to shine bright. Lately, the most common remodeling option has been the contemporary bathroom. If you want to bring clean lines and sleek colors into your master bathroom, you’ve come to the right place. Check out these top tips for designing a contemporary master bathroom.
Keep It Minimalist and Sleek
Times have changed, meaning ornate cravings and stained wood are not at the top of our list anymore. Instead, people choose simplicity. Since the bathroom is one of the best rooms to find peace and unwind, you want it to be calming.
For that reason, people opt for minimalism. Contemporary bathrooms breathe simplicity, so you can expect to find sleek fixtures and furniture once you start looking. Most importantly, a modern bathroom is uncluttered. Storage space is a priority, and counter space should be clean and organized.
Make It Easy to Clean
It’s everyone’s dream to have an easy-to-clean bathroom. Whether you hate cleaning or strive for perfection, there are a few things you can do to create an easy-to-clean contemporary bathroom. Take a look at a few tips on how to design a modern easy-to-clean bathroom below.
- Wall-mounted toilets
- Built-in shower niche
- Free-standing bath
- Fewer glass surfaces
- Larger tiles for less grout use
- Walk-in shower
- Semi-inset or countertop basins
- Quality ventilation
By implementing all of these features, you will have more time to spend on other things than cleaning the bathroom. Besides, you will get a highly-functioning contemporary master bathroom that you’ve always dreamed of.
Use Smart Technology
There’s nothing unusual about implementing smart technology in contemporary bathrooms. As times have changed, so has bathroom design, meaning bathrooms have also become smart. You can add a few things to your bathroom to take full advantage of modern tech.
For example, a smart toilet is a common choice among our clientele. Such a toilet cleans itself and its user, and it’s a cool gadget that will add a high-tech spark to your bathroom. Besides that, you can opt for a smart mirror that will tell you the weather forecast as you’re preparing for your day. These mirrors come with even more incredible features, like reading your emails, texts, and similar.
You can also connect an Alexa Echo system (or similar) to voice-activate mood lightning and play your favorite songs.
Create an Accent Wall
Although some homeowners prefer to keep their walls neutral due to the bathroom’s modern nature, some want the walls to draw the eye. One of the more popular choices for fully tiled bathrooms is keeping an area darker than the rest.
For example, you can put darker walls and floor tiles in the shower to accentuate an area. Or opt for waterproof magnesium oxide boards that are perfect for humid and wet environments.
Similarly, wallpapers will add depth, tone, and texture to the room. When it comes to this, there are plenty of options to consider. Some of the more popular ones are wallpapers that imitate wood, paneling, bricks, tiles, etc.
Incorporate Modern Lighting
Lighting is probably one of the last things you have in mind when renovating a bathroom, but ultimately it is vital. Depending on the style you’re going for and the natural source of light, there are two options available.
Although you could rely on natural light, it probably won’t be enough. So, instead of depending on one prominent light source, opt for multiple lighting fixtures throughout the bathroom. We recommend sleek and discreet options, like mirror lights, recessed lights, and floor lights.
Another more daring option is to opt for a central chandelier. Although a more bold choice, a chandelier will set the tone for the entire bathroom. If you’re going for a more decadent overall theme, this could be a perfect choice.
Devil Is in the Details
Lastly, don’t forget to dress up your bathroom. Choose matching containers for shampoo, shower gel, soap, and other liquids. You can also pick up glass containers for cotton swabs and balls or similar knick-knacks. Matching containers will immediately scale up the whole place.
Similarly, you can add life to the bathroom with plants. Opt for succulents and similar plants that don’t require a lot of attention. Additionally, the humidity in the bathroom will help the plants thrive.
