Tile is frequently used in bathrooms for many reasons. It’s aesthetically pleasing, it reflects light, it’s durable, it’s easy to clean and it’s a simple way to freshen up the space. And options abound for bathroom tile ideas, from material to implementation. Tile halfway up the wall to create wainscoting, use classic white subway tile, tile the entire wall, create a 4-6 inch border or combine multiple style elements using whichever material you like.
Neutral shades are a popular pick for bathrooms, but that shouldn’t mean that adding color is totally off limits. In such a small space, color might seem risky but it’s just the opposite. On a small scale it’s easy to go bold without going overboard.
Choosing lighting is a crucial part of modern design style especially in the bathroom. There are plenty of lighting choices available to you. Modern design is all about lines and geometric shapes, so keep that in mind when shopping for light fixtures, windows, and placement of lighting. However, make sure to remember that the quality of the light is further more important than the actual light fixture. Skylights are great idea for modern bathrooms, because they add more natural light and interest to your bathroom.
