Understanding The Basics

Before digging into the details and ideas, here are a couple of key points to keep in mind while planning your new bathroom design:

  • Make sure it’s functional. Above all else, your bathroom must function well for everyone who will be using it. It should feel natural and be easy to clean. Your essentials should be close at hand and your room well-lit.
  • Remember storage. After you’ve created the perfect oasis for yourself, you’ll want to relax and enjoy. That’s not easy to do when there is clutter and toiletries scattered about. Embrace storage concepts and include plenty of them in your bathroom style ideas.
  • Create a focal point. Draw attention to your space by giving it a focal point. Use your shower, vanity, or a bright wall to jazz up the room and design around.
  • Pay attention to the details. Even the little things can matter in a space as small as a bathroom. Carefully consider everything you add to the space, from fixtures to tiles to decorations.

Plan your bathroom, keeping these basic features in mind. You can create a beautiful bathroom around these key items and some of the design ideas below.

Modern Bathroom Designs

Create the bathroom of your dreams with modern, innovative bathroom ideas. Mix and match styles that fit best with your personal preferences, and design a bathroom layout that will allow you to build your perfect oasis. These modern design ideas can get you started.

Minimalist Design. Go for a streamlined look that can fit any lifestyle. Minimalist designs can provide a clean, serene environment to relax. Use sleek fixtures and pare down your decor to give your room a spacious, open feeling.

Industrial Touches. Nostalgia for the past is bringing back industrial design layouts for the modern bathroom. Consider raw touches in your space, such as brick, metal, concrete, and exposed lighting and plumbing, for a contemporary feel.

Use of Neutral Colours. Whites, beiges, greys, and tans are always a nice bathroom idea. With neutral colours on your walls, flooring, and vanity, you can decorate the space with personalised decor and change it for every season if you choose.

Smart Storage Solutions. Most vanities have some storage in them, but it is rarely enough. For additional storage in your room, consider shelves below a floating sink, baskets on a shelf or in open floor space, storage ladders, and even bar carts. Modern medicine cabinets recessed into a wall can give you extra storage space without making it feel like Grandma’s house.

High-Tech Bathroom Ideas

The digital world has invaded every aspect of our lives, and the bathroom is no different. But with these new bathroom ideas, you’ll only be making your bath time more enjoyable.

Built-In Bluetooth Speakers. Connect with your favourite audio channels while relaxing in your bathtub or shower, or enjoy a shared bath with a partner and some romantic music.

Touchless Faucets. Create a more hygienic bathroom with touchless faucets. Set them to turn on hot water, cold water, or both and have them shut off automatically when not in use.

Heated Floors. Warm floors can take away the winter blues and keep your bathroom warm, so when you step into the shower first thing in the morning, you don’t step out into the cold.

Eclectic Designs

Be bold and daring with eclectic styles. Combine several different bathroom design inspirations together to create your individual oasis.

Mixed Patterns and Textures. Combining styles is the base of an eclectic design. Pair smooth textures with rough, shaggy rugs. Merge checker-pattern tiles with chevron wallpaper. The more you mix, the more stylish the room becomes.

Unconventional Fixtures. Bring your room together by using a variety of different fixtures. Try gold faucets and brass or chrome light switches. Mix different styles and eras to fit your tastes.

Bold Colour Combinations. Another bright bathroom idea is bold colours. Opt for ones that match your patterns, or mix in something completely different to finish the look in your room.

Rustic Bathroom Ideas

Grab Bars and Railings. By placing grab bars throughout the bathroom, you can help everyone become more mobile. Bars and railings in the shower and tub and by the toilet can provide stability and help people get up and down.

Bathroom Lighting Ideas

Light plays a big part in any bathroom aesthetics. Ideas range from overhead lighting to mood lighting, but all of them must flow into the theme you’re trying to create. Here are a few ideas.

Layered Lighting. Create layers of lighting by putting several fixtures along the ceiling and walls in your room. Space them evenly above and around your vanity, and add accent bars and spotlights where necessary.
