Contemporary style can mean different things to different dwellers, but generally speaking, modern design incorporates of-the-moment materials and up-to-date design trends. If you can find it all over your Instagram feed and flooding your Pinterest boards as of late, chances are it's current, aka contemporary.
As if creating a space that's worthy of posting isn't renovation motivation enough, opting for a modern bathroom design aesthetic—think sleek lines, natural materials, a neutral color palette, gilded finishes, and minimalist undertones—is the best way to balance today's trends with elements you'll love for years to come. And the best part is the look is one that suits spaces and budgets, both large and small.
Whether you're planning a total overhaul or you just want to update your bathroom on a limited budget and schedule, these modern bathroom design ideas inspire your next makeover.
Use Black Fixtures
A bathroom doesn't need to be completely gutted and renovated from floor to ceiling to make an impact. Something as simple and swapping all the fixtures in your white bathroom to black hardware is an easy, but visually striking contemporary update.
Try Floor-To-Ceiling Tile
Aside from your kitchen, there are few rooms in your home that can handle a floor-to-ceiling tile installation. When's the last time you saw tiled walls in a living room? Do yourself a favor and use that to your advantage. The end result will look so expensive and totally polished.
When In Doubt, Choose Marble
It's no secret, marble is the material of the moment. While expensive, this floor-to-ceiling install is one-way ticket to the contemporary bathroom of your dreams. If the budget allows, you can add a contrasting black marble to the floors for a design that will impress guests for decades to come.
Let Your Textures Do The Talking
You don't need a ton of color to give your space the visual interest you're seeking. If you're sticking with shades of white and grey, choose your textures wisely. The vertical subway tile, paired with woodgrain floors and shiny glass shower doors do the trick, without the need for loud hues.
