Modern bathrooms are the height of luxury — free-standing or sunken baths of rich-grained marble matched with cool blues can play against each other on walls, floors and windows, with effective results.
If your bathroom opens off the master bedroom, tie in the decorating and color scheme with the bedroom for an integrated feeling. Mirrors help to push out walls in small bathrooms giving them the appearance of being larger.

White is a very popular paint color in modern bathrooms, although most any color is acceptable as long as everything blend perfectly. Add color through the use of towels, rugs and other accessories. Modern bathrooms tend to be minimalistic, so don’t overdo it with accessories.
Modern Bathroom Accents
- A Modern Bathroom Theme – Creates a place of functional beauty and comfort. Stainless steel, brushed aluminum, polished nickel, patina bronze, chrome and porcelain are all welcome bathroom accessory finishes that will help complete the sense of casual elegance.
- Today’s modern bathroom decorating accessories feature square or rounded, sharp and clean lines, which are easily found in uniquely shaped tubs, vanities, toilets, faucets and hardware.
- When choosing bathroom flooring, keep in mind moisture levels and the amount of abuse this floor will have to with stand. Some great options include hardwood, cork, bamboo, glass tiles, concrete, and pebble tiles.
- Lighting options range from a hanging pendant lamp or a unique chandelier coupled with the proper vanity lighting, for ease of make-up application and other grooming tasks.
Another attractive design idea is to incorporate a custom-designed bath tub which boasts it’s own comfortable seating right in the bath, add to this skylights, glass doors opening onto a garden or small patio and lush green vegetation along windows and tub. As an added luxury, lavishly face floors, counter-tops and walls with marble.
