Modern Bathroom Design Ideas For Private Luxury

Modern bathroom design is centered around a simple, clean, minimalistic look and feel. Think geometric shapes and patterns, clean lines, minimal colors and mid-century furniture. Your bathroom, large or small, can easily become a luxurious, modern sanctuary for function and relaxation.

Since bathrooms are spaces that we use everyday, designing them to suit our personal style is important. From bright and cheery to sophisticated and elegant, these modern bathroom design ideas transform utilitarian spaces into relaxing and refreshing escapes.

Mid-Century Modern Style

Mid-century modern design is defined as the architectural, furniture, graphic and interior style of the mid-19th century (1933-1965). The mid-century modern look is made up of geometric shapes, natural colors and straight lines. Bathroom fixtures and furniture is great place to start when designing your modern bathroom. 

Minimalist Design

Simplicity is a rule of thumb for modern design, so make sure that you are keeping your bathroom open and free of clutter. Use built-in shelving and cabinetry to hide unwanted personal items. Tuck away toiletries and novelty items and focus on a clean space for relaxation. Avoid the temptation to add accessories and clutter. Choose tile and backsplash with geometric shapes to add interest and character without sacrificing minimalistic design.

Freestanding Bathtubs

Freestanding tubs are a staple for modern bathroom designs. Balance is key, so keep things symmetrical and sharp by strategically placing your tub in a spot that enhances the feng shui of your bathroom. Traditionally bathtubs are the familiar oval shape, however a rectangular or pedestal tub makes your bathroom look and feel more modern.

Greenery in the Shower

Adding a touch of greenery in your bathroom creates a connection between the indoors and outdoors. Organic design coincides with modern design, meaning that the natural outdoor space should easily mesh with the indoor space you are designing. Bring the outdoors inside by adding a houseplant or two — they look great in the shower, next to the sink, or on a windowsill.

Modern Lighting

Choosing lighting is a crucial part of modern design style especially in the bathroom. Modern design is all about lines and geometric shapes, so keep that in mind when shopping for light fixtures or windows, and considering the placement of lighting.Don’t forget that the quality of the light is just as important as the actual light fixture. Skylights are a fresh and functional design trick for modern bathrooms, because they add more natural light and visual interest to your bathroom.
