Less is truly more when it comes to modern spaces. In this school of design rather than thinking of negative space as something empty that needs to be filled it’s seen as an active detail in creating a minimalist aesthetic. The key to pulling off this look is making every design element count.
Lay geometric tiles in an ombré pattern to bring a modern edge to a room with industrial elements. The cobalt blue pattern on these tiles evokes the soothing watercolor feel of Japanese shibori painting the wall with subtle texture.
Give a plain bathroom a sassy twist by tiling a half-wall in a saturated color such as fire-glazed orchid. Make a boring white bathroom exciting by laying tiles in a herringbone pattern and layering in a touch of color.
To pull this off we recommend that you stick to a fairly neutral look. Think about incorporating a monochromatic color scheme in your design. This color combo adds a sense of classic elegance to the space and will never go out of style.
This tip is more about function than aesthetics but it is one that your guests will truly appreciate. Whoever comes to visit they’ll likely be bringing a host of toiletries of their own and they’ll need somewhere to put them. Make sure your guest bathroom includes plenty of room for your visitors to spread out during their stay.
Open shower: PROS: The no barrier appeal of open showers opens up your bathroom and can give visual views of expansive vistas and views outside of a window beyond. This modern touch gives the feel of a luxury spa or high end hotel that home owners enjoy. CONS: Many home owners don’t enjoy the open and unprotected feel of open showers. While visually appealing some home owners still prefer to have a visual and physical barrier between the shower and the rest of the bathroom.
