Elements of Modern Bathroom styles:

Minimalistic Design

Modern design is mainly simplistic yet classy design. You have to make sure that you are keeping the space clutter free at all times. Get built-in shelves and cabinets made to hide unnecessary personal items. Keep all toiletries out of the eye sight, bathroom is a space for relaxation, we strongly suggest you to not clutter it up with unnecessary things. Choose tile that doesn’t compromise with the minimalistic design, you could use geometric shaped tiles to add interest.



Bathrooms are one such space of our home that we use on every day basis, their importance is far more than we realise. If you use your bathroom space properly, it will transform your dull bathrooms into incredible relaxation spaces. Use mid-century furniture to give your bathroom a contemporary look. Use white colour vanities in your bathroom to give it a minimalistic look and this trend is here to stay.


Freestanding Bathtubs

If the space allows for then mostly all modern bathroom designs consists of freestanding bathtubs. Free standing bathtubs also give the bathroom more spacious feeling. Don’t go for traditional oval shaped bathtubs; instead give rectangular tub a try. Place your bathtub where it balances out the other fixtures.



Tiles and Marbles are usual choices for Bathroom floors. We can go for Vinyl floors also if wet areas are carefully segregated either by using bath cubicles or Bathtubs. So Flooring is fine but what should we use atop on the floor of your modern bathroom? Well, premium quality rugs are one of good choices to make. These rugs definitely make your bathroom look more modern than bathmats. Always try to buy rugs that don’t absorb moisture much, fade and mildew resistant. Light blue wall to wall rug would give you the perfect clean, sharp look to complement your other white fixtures and vanity.

Add good quality mirror lights around mirrors in addition to main light.  Please don’t block skylights or windows while getting the bathrooms designed. It doesn’t matter, how beautiful way, bathroom is designed, if there is no scope of natural light, it is going to be damp and gloomy after a reasonable time.


Indoor Plants

A touch of greenery always makes any space lively, it creates a connection between the indoors and outdoors. Bring the outdoors in your bathroom by adding an indoor plant or two, you could choose plants that are of low-maintenance or even artificial ones.


Shower curtains

Bathroom curtains don’t get as much important as they should get. People just tend to buy anything because they think it’s just for hindrance.
