Traditionally, choosing furniture for a modern space meant staying within the Art Deco, Shaker or Mission styles. More recently, Scandinavian-inspired products have also been included in this category. Whichever design your bathroom furnishings are, try to ensure that they are as simplistic as possible and have a clearly defined shape.
Besides using few colors, great modern bathrooms also tend to use a limited palette of materials and repeat these materials on different surfaces to make the entire space appear continuous and harmonious. Picking one stone to dress walls and floors, and one wood species for accents, for example, will make your space appear cohesive.
Is the water pressure adequate? Run the cold water in the tub or shower and then flush the toilet: If the volume of running water diminishes noticeably, the pressure is low. Do you need a second sink? Is there enough ventilation, or does the bathroom fill with steam and remain damp for hours after every shower? Is the tile around the bath or shower tight or are there signs of deterioration at the corners or at the junction between the tile and the tub or shower base? Use the heel of your hand to exert some gentle pressure on the tile walls at the point where they join the tub or shower pan. Is there any give? Springy tile may indicate the wall has gotten damp and deteriorated over the years. The absence of a grout line and the presence of mold are signs that water may be seeping into the wall cavities.
Various materials can be used to clad the surfaces in a modern bathroom, from humble porcelain tile to luxe marble. However, a sturdy, natural stone like limestone, granite or travertine will deliver an excellent balance of function and beauty. Ultimately, in a sleek space with little flashy decoration, the materials need to bring the wow factor, and using a healthy dose of sumptuous stone is one of the most effective ways to give your space designer appeal.
