Minimalist style and modern bathroom design go hand in hand. When creating a modern bathroom, it’s all about finding a well-curated set of cohesive and high-quality features that harmonise into a space.
Paying close attention to surfaces, finishes and the quality of each element is key, as is examining how well they fit into the whole style.
Keep reading for plenty of modern bathroom ideas to inspire you for your bathroom renovation.
From the biggest bathrooms to the smallest, your modern style will cohere best when you consider the scale and placement of each element to maintain a sense of balance and proportion.
There’s enough clutter and chaos in our world already. Why not create an open, soothing space where you have room to rest and reset? In this large bathroom from The Block a completely frameless glass shower screen at the side of the room lets the eye take in the full space.
A freestanding bath creates a strong focal point that can help tie a bathroom together, but it also gives you more flexibility to choose where you want that focal point to be. Pair a freestanding bath with a tower bath mixer for even more freedom.
From gold tapware to marble to a natural stone bath like this one, use incredible or unusual materials to create a real statement and introduce some surprising textures into your bathroom.
Add structure with three-dimensional feature tiles to add a whole new dimension to your modern bathroom. 3D tiles in strong neutrals like black and white or even metallics are on trend.
There’s no reason you can’t be bold with a modern bathroom. Sticking to a neutral palette, create a deep black marble feature wall or create a single point of stark contrast with a flash of colour to create a strong focal point that fits in with your theme.
A small flash of gold can go a long way. Not only are metallics trending in bathrooms, they make the perfect feature against the simple neutral palette that works best in most modern bathrooms.
Don’t shy away from the forms and structures that make up your modern bathroom – embrace them by choosing elements that bring them out, like these bold black shower frames used by Alisa & Lysandra.
Look for opportunities to tie different elements of your bathroom together. This modern bathroom designed by Alisa & Lysandra harmonise their arched mirrors, tapware and basin’s legs through a synergistic choice of metal.
