Modern Simplicity

This bathroom by Stephani Buchman, by means of Houzz has all the hallmarks of a modern design: basic geometric shapes (dominated by squares and rectangles), the predominance of white with a little neutral gray, a natural stone backsplash, and bit in the way of design.

Glamorous Simpleness (Studio Isle).

This marble bathroom by Studio Isle utilizes a great deal of modern decoration staples, in addition to a touch of glam thanks to its golden hardware and its all-marble design. The rigid application of square and rectangular shapes is contrasted just by the curves of the faucet spouts.

KG. Modern bathrooms do not always opt for the white, gleaming appearance. In some cases dark is likewise contemporary, as with this modern restroom area by Bau-Fritz GmbH & Co. KG, via Houzz, dominated by a dark gray slate tile.

The light wood furniture and white components bring a needed touch of light, color, and organic feel. Notice the very little hardware and how the shape of the sinks echoes the size and shape of the tiles.

Mid-Century Modern.

Modern style also reaches what designers call “mid-century,” a decorating style influenced by the perceptiveness and constructing practices of the 50s and 60s.

In this contemporary bathroom, discovered on Homestratosphere, it’s the rounded corners of the vanity that gives the area its mid-century vibe. The dark wood paneling contrasting the neutral beige tile also adds to this generally mid-century modern-day bathroom.
