Materials in modern bathrooms
The elements that are most used today are wood, glass, small tiles both on the floor and to cover the wall, terrazzo or marble.
A natural material that brings back the mastery of nature in our homes is undoubtedly wood. It is primarily being used as wall and floor covering, but is also seen on countertops and furniture.
These designs give us an excellent example of elegant combinations of natural materials that can be suitable for a modern bathroom. A wooden base with stainless steel accessories, an innovative and classy combination.
The presence of the clean and fresh texture of the wood in the design gives a luxurious touch to the composition.
The launch of new specially designed wood products allows us to bring its natural warmth into a space where the use of this material was taboo. It can also be used on walls.
Wood flooring is also one of the big trends in modern bathroom design. They are wonderful for bare feet as it feels very warm. It can also be used to balance the coolness of the tiles.
Marble or stone
The year 2020 will be marked by the return of marble. Colors will be white, gray, red. The seamless flowing lines and layout of the spaces will be practical and simple, but with a touch of organic and elegant comfort.
Marble and wood are not the only natural materials that will be a trend in the coming year. Natural stone will continue to be used, not simply on the floor and walls, but also on countertops and sinks. It is played with the majesty of natural materials that contrast with each other, which offer us visual and tactile texture in a room that has become a sanctuary.
Here is an example of how the nobility of stone in combination with other natural materials can compose a truly elegant and contemporary environment. If you are going to put a wooden worktop, make sure it is protected against water, there are currently many paints that keep them perfect for years.
Metal has been a major interior trend in recent years, and it looks like it’s not going to be falling out of use. Gold metals offer glamor and contrast with natural materials.
They reflect light and inject style with either an industrial touch or a touch of glamor. Metals with matte or satin finishes will be especially popular this year.
Metal accessories in shades of brass and gold is another trend. An elegant return to the aesthetics of the 70s in the combination of colors and shades.
Combine organic and modern
When a combination of modern and organic is used, a clean and elegant atmosphere is created. For example, the juxtaposition of wood and glass is one of the most beautiful options.
In the image we see a shower that is placed between the heat of the wood and the shine of the ceramic tiles and the glass. A combination of complementary materials easy to maintain. A modern but homely composition.
This balanced atmosphere can be achieved by combining classic and modern, minimalism and warmth, innovation and nature.
Small mosaic-type tiles are being widely used today.
Also handmade tiles are a trend. Beautiful for their imperfections, they infuse a rich texture as well as visual appeal. The contrasting texture of the handmade tiles and the natural grain of the wood are very complementary.
Tiles with creative patterns
Geometric patterned tiles may have been very popular in recent years, but it goes back to plain, basic tiles, but with a creative twist. For example, a herringbone pattern adds a dose of elegant appeal.
Regarding the ground, one of the current options is terrazzo.
Accessories and ornaments
When decorating the bathroom, many times we do not pay attention, without realizing it, to the number of people outside the house who visit it throughout our lives. Therefore, it is important that we take care of all the details as if it were the entrance of the house.
Modern bathroom sinks and taps
Thanks to the great variety that exists in the market, we can choose from the most classic faucets to the most sophisticated, it all depends on the style we want to give the bathroom.
For example, if the bathroom has a minimalist style, it is best that we choose to put a very modern tap. If we are going to opt for a vintage style, classic faucets are the best option.
There are a variety of designs and materials in the sinks, for example, below we see a marble sink, one of the trends today. The mix of materials adds a touch to the super elegant and refined bathroom.
The heating designs for bathrooms bring very original proposals, as you can see in these photos.
Modern bathrooms with hydromassage shower or bath
If we think about how the bathrooms were a few years ago, we can see how in almost all the houses the comfortable bathtub reigned. Bathtubs have always been perfect because they can be filled with water and sit for hours on end until your fingers are wrinkled. With the arrival of the showers this was left behind, and it is that modern life makes us go faster and faster, leaving little room for what was once one of life’s pleasures: bath time.
But this does not mean that today’s showers do not give us many fabulous options. As you can see, they take up much less space than a normal bathtub and have the advantage that you can walk freely and move more comfortably.
A shower with built-in massages may seem like a luxury that not everyone can access. However, it is also part of the great additions in modern bathrooms, and it is not as expensive as it seems.
An installation consisting of a large shower head and a separate hand shower, instead of two shower heads mounted on the same bar. Not only does it offer a more luxurious, invigorating and customizable shower, but it also offers a stylish look in modern bathrooms.
Modern bathtubs meanwhile, also usually come with a host of amenities, especially whirlpools.
If possible, the bathroom should have natural light.
Regarding the luminaire, there are many offers on the market. One of the best proposals are the lights that can be adjusted, so as to acclimate the bathroom to suit the occasion.
The oversized mirror is a common sight in modern bathrooms. These types of formats are currently being seen: square or rectangular with rounded corners.
This was a trend last year and will continue to be. The indoor plant brings the beauty of the outside and is part of the design of the bathroom. It is not a simple accessory, but an integral element, which can be changed with the seasons.
Modern bathroom design
At first glance it may seem that the bathroom is the most inconsequential space in the house, but if you think about it more, you will see that it is one of the places where you spend a lot of time. So why not let your imagination run wild and you can turn this space into a place full of style and beauty?
Geometry becomes important in architectural and structural details, but also in tile coverings.
This rectangular shape of the tiles is a trend that is sure to span several years and a very popular design combination with multiple variations. Even 3D depths can be achieved.
Everything is based on a style of straight lines, spacious, a lot of work with mirrors, stainless steel, black, white and neutral tones. Simplicity reigns in modern bathrooms, with a good deal of minimalism. Simplicity not of comfort but visual; order, no extra furniture or accessories, all in the same color or shade.
This is sure to be good news for renovators who hate clutter and exaggerated design, in favor of a clean, practical, and efficient look. Make sure there is adequate storage to hide the hair dryer and lotions. The non-functional elements are hidden, allowing an orderly and calm environment.
The bathroom is no longer purely functional, but also a place to escape the daily grind, and this will be seen in the custom-made furniture and ambient lighting. A nice dressing table, with a stool for makeup in the bathroom, will make you feel very comfortable. Think of stools, armchairs, poufs, bathroom rugs, and pendant lights.
Industrial design is on the rise. Using cement, sandy or silky smooth if you opt for a polished finish, not just on the bathroom floor, but as a wall finish.
But be aware that concrete can make a space seem cold and hard. Introducing contrasting textures like wood, natural fibers, and plush bath rugs and towels will help soften the look and add comfort.
It is about using simple lines and few decorative elements.
Dark color accents
Dark colors make a big comeback on the interior design fashion scene this season. One of the trendiest colors of this season, as an accent on the details, will undoubtedly be black. This color does not have to look boring, it works wonderfully with a rich variety of shades and tones.
