What is a Contemporary Bathroom?

First of all, allow us to explain what we mean when we say the term contemporary bathroom. Contemporary bathrooms are all about clean lines and uncomplicated, minimalist style. They also feature beautiful and current fittings and are considered to be a bathroom trend more popular than ever before. In fact, did you know that there are more modern bathroom products available in the UK than there are any other styles?!

If you’re looking for a bathroom design that’s fit for a present-day home, there are several essential elements to consider in order to achieve the look. From sophisticated tiles to standout bathroom suites, have a read of our handy guide to achieve the perfect contemporary bathroom.

Stylish Soaking

Opting for a contemporary bathroom suite is one of the quickest ways to get the look you want. After a tough day, what could be better than a long relaxing soak in a luxury freestanding bath? Creating a stunning focal point, a standalone bath will, without a doubt, complement your contemporary bathroom look. Shower curtains are also now a thing of the past with modern-bathroom owners choosing walk-in alternatives and extremely sleek dividing walls. Just so you know how much room you have to work with, make sure to take some accurate measurements and note down the location of any vents and pipes. One other useful tip is to ensure your freestanding bath is at least 100 mm away from the wall as you will need to leave enough room for that all essential plumbing.

High-Class Taps

The right set of bathroom taps can make or break a bathroom and when it comes to the contemporary look, simplicity does it best. Waterfall basin mixers, like this one from Sottini, work perfectly in modern bathrooms. Sleek and square profiles also look the part as do minimalist handles and spouts. If you’re in need of some bathroom tap inspiration, we have just the thing for you. Why not take a look through our stylish bathroom portfolio and keep the creative vibes flowing.

Contemporary Bathroom Tiles

Rounding-off your contemporary vision just perfectly now is carefully selected bathroom tiles. Stone effect and concrete versions work fabulous in a modern setting. Additionally, when used for both the walls and the floor, are certain to result in understated elegance. This continuous tiling style is also great if you're looking to create the perception of more bathroom space. Alternatively, wood effect floor tiles are just as easy on the eye and promise a sophisticated outcome when paired with high-grade wall tiles.

The Modern Finishing Touches

When it comes to your contemporary bathroom, it’s often the little things that create the big picture. Up-to-date towel rails and radiators are a great investment as is ingenious bathroom technology. An illuminated mirror and vanity area will also bring the best out of your modern styling and downlights will provide additional brilliance to your shower and bathing areas.
