When designing a modern space the first step is to get rid of (or at least hide) any unneeded clutter. Once the room is cleared add a few multifunctional pieces. Be sure that every element you bring in has a clearly defined purpose in addition to driving home your modern aesthetic. Carefully distribute items throughout the room so that it feels balanced.
Coastal touches will also be popular in 2014. Look for natural seaside accessories such as rocks shells and driftwood which will give the bathroom that natural beach feel. The design below is a great example of a driftwood mirror which can either be bought or made by yourself; that is if you have the time inclination and access to beach doodads of course.
One of copper’s other positive features is that it’s fairly easy to care for. Most of the time warm water is all that is needed to restore a worn-out fixture or lighting element to its former shine. For those occasions that call for a more thorough cleaning skip the harsh chemicals in favor of a gentler cleaner like dish soap.
This trend works with traditional long boards as in the design below as well as square and rectangular tiles. Use the same tones on the cupboards and units with the bathroom as they’ll complement each other felicitously.
Adjustable lighting will create a multifunctional bathroom: When a space is limited to only one function it can feel smaller than it is. For example if you only have one overhead light in the bathroom you will find only utilitarian tasks to occupy your time and then leave. Add a dimmer switch to that same lighting fixture and now you can get ready for work in the morning and in the evening relax in the tub or shower. Your small bathroom just got a lot larger!
Use space above the doorway for storage: The next time you are in your bathroom observe how much vertical space in your bathroom isn’t being used. Typically the space above a doorway is vacant. Especially if you have higher ceilings than the minimum clearance you can install decorative storage shelves to house bath tub salts scrubs etc… in a decorative basket. If you aren’t concerned about décor use the shelf for storing extra toilet paper and cleaners to free up valuable storage area below the sink
