Contemporary Bathrooms

A bathroom is no longer a room where you have a bath. It's a room where we spend time each day privately away from the rest of the world.  As such, it should be both functional and aesthetically appealing. 

When thinking of contemporary bathroom designs, it is important to combine style and functionality. Its distinctive feature is minimalism characterized by clear lines and shapes. Free hanging wash hand basins and water closets and also spot lights are hallmarks of this design.

The bathtub location also now plays an important role as it can become a focal point of the room set in the middle of it or in any other spot in the room. Also feel free to incorporate a furniture item such as a chair or an ottoman into your bathroom design.
Common materials used in contemporary bathrooms are marble, stainless steel, glass and wood. You can also read up on how to incorporate aspects of Zen into your bathroom design.
In the image below, notice the free hanging wash hand basins and the crystal chandelier, giving the space a fusion of the old and new. Also notice the nontraditional bathtub in marble lying on a wooden/parquet floor.
In the bathroom below, spot lights have been used.



  1. Can this be done on a budget

  2. Nice. How about an African themed restroom? Any ideas?
