The quintessential colours of a modern bathroom are undeniably minimalist. Think white, grey, beige, cream, and black. Though this colour scheme is simple. It is made that way for a reason. These neutral colours bring to mind cleanliness, tidiness and organisation. There is simply no room for clutter when designing a chic modern bathroom. The lighter shades of this colour scheme like white, beige, and cream will also open up the room, making it feel larger. If you are renovating a small bathroom this is especially ideal.
Bathrooms are a great place to have fun with flooring because they are not too large. Try patterned tiles, mosaics, penny tiles, or beautiful stone or marble tiles. This bathroom has a fun black and white checkerboard tile place on an angle to add a dynamic effect. When you use pattern on a bathroom floor keep your wall finishes simple. This allows the floor to be the star of your design.
Tile flooring is common in bathrooms and offers a nice alternative to hardwoods, which can get warped if they are exposed to too much water. If you decide to put ceramic tile on the floor, look for a grade of 1 or 2, a water-absorption rating of less than 7 percent and a coefficient of friction above .60, which are slip-resistant and can stand up to water. Also pay attention to porosity; you’ll want a more impervious tile for the floor because of exposure to water. Vinyl feels better on bare feet than ceramic tile, and it’s one of the more popular flooring choices as it’s inexpensive and practical (safe, easy to install and maintain).
To make a bathroom appear larger, skip wall-to-wall cabinets and open up the space. A good way to do this is by building a bathroom counter or vanity that appears to float. Another way to get the look is by skipping the traditional cabinet vanity base and using a sofa table with open shelving below. Make sure the table is a minimum of 16” deep to fit your sink(s).
