How do I create a modern bathroom? If you've decided it's time for a modern bathroom in your home, you'll probably be wondering where to start in terms of design and planning. First things first, think long and hard about your basic fittings and fixtures, as these will form the heart of the room. Do your research, shop around and, ultimately, consult a professional to ensure you get things right. Ask yourself a few simple questions: Do I want a bathtub? If so, what style? And do I want a shower attachment in the bath or a separate cubicle? What type of washbasin and vanity is right for me? Remember to keep things simple, understated and neutral if you want to perfect that modern aesthetic. Next up, it's time to consider your palette. Are you going for monochrome drama, all-white class or some natural earthy tones? Of course a little color is fine, but avoid going too gaudy if you want to keep things timeless and chic. Next up, have a think about the flooring you'd like. Bear in mind that your options will be somewhat limited in this room due to dampness and humidity, but still ensure you pick a look that works for you. Finally, make some prudent lighting decisions, shoehorn in enough storage space, throw in a couple of pot plants and—voila!—you're good to go.
A space can feel lacking when everything in it is flat and one-dimensional — that's why it's important to embrace texture. From the tufted bathmat to the ribbed pot plant, I've injected many textures into this bathroom, finding these clever buys at The Reject Shop. Even the un-craftiest person can attempt the two DIYs in this bathroom to make affordable versions of high-end products — the bath shelf and concrete trivet. Bathtub trays often cost hundreds of dollars but this one only uses one piece of timber and glue (you might even have timber at home you could use). And concrete trivets are a great way of introducing texture to a space but buying one could easily eat up most of the $100 budget I set to style the bathroom. I made this one for peanuts using a plastic container from The Reject Shop and small pieces of dowel I had at home.
Porcelain is also a popular option for bathroom sinks, though it proved prone to chipping in our tests. Enamel-on-steel sinks were especially durable and stain-resistant, as were stainless steel sinks, which are becoming more popular for use in bathrooms. Solid-surface sinks are another durable option that allows the sink to be integrated with the vanity countertop and, if you like, the adjoining cove or backsplash. When it comes to the countertop, granite and quartz have migrated from the kitchen into the bathroom, where they deliver the same durability and visual interest. Laminate and solid surface are still popular as well, and can be cost-effective options, though both scratch easily. See our countertop Ratings for full details.
