In today's modern homes, many people are looking for advice on creating modern bathrooms. They are looking for ways to accentuate the free space in the bathroom and yet include design ideas that are functional, simplistic in shape and line, and that are beautiful.
Many modern bathrooms use monochromatic color schemes. The most popular ones are black, white, bronze and copper. Sometimes the color is only broken by the gleam of chrome or glass, while some homeowners choose to accent their modern bathrooms with vivid colored accessories placed here and there.
Another popular color scheme is the use of black and white in nearly equal proportions.. This use of opposite colors in the room creates a dramatic effect that is sometimes startling in its intensity.
One popular interior design idea in modern bathrooms is to offset the sleek, flowing lines by the use of various textures. Various types of rock or woven fiber are typically used on walls or floors. Some bath interior design experts choose very little ornamentation in order to intensify the clean, uncluttered look. These designers depend solely on a simple highly textured vase or basket with a few twigs or stems protruding in a casual yet elegant way.
The most striking element of modern bathroom designs are the clean, crisp lines created by the bathroom fixtures themselves. The bathtub, the toilet, the sink or the entire vanity form a cohesive whole and the shapes being chosen for these items are sleek and pleasing to the eye. Bathtubs and sinks can be square, rectangular, round, oval or even shaped like a lady's slipper. Whichever form is chosen is carried out throughout the rest of the bathroom for a pleasing effect.
Design solutions for modern bathrooms include toilets that have the tanks and bowls trimmed down to create sleeker lines, or toilets that appear to be tank-less and are mounted to the wall without bases. They seem to float out of the wall. Similarly, many of the modern bathrooms sport bathtubs that are freestanding and make a statement of simplicity of line, while appearing beautiful or even elegant, depending on what types of accents are chosen. Modern bathroom vanities can also be either freestanding or wall mounted, often without any drawers or cabinets underneath. The use of vessel sinks is an extremely popular idea. The water flows into a sink that appears to be a simple bowl or basin. All of these elements combine to not only create the clean, flowing lines desired in modern bathrooms, but also create the illusion of a great deal more space.
Whichever design ideas you choose for your modern bathroom, you are sure to be pleased with the clean, uncluttered feel when you step inside. Tranquility abounds in today's modern bathrooms.
