Modern Contemporary Bathroom Ideas
Designing a contemporary bathroom is more than just creating a space with the latest trends in bathroom design. While its sleek lines, gilded finishes, and minimalist cool can be hard to resist, it’s also important that you design a functional sanctuary that you will love and enjoy using for years to come.
Today, let’s take a look at 3 different material themes for modern contemporary bathrooms and talk about the best pairings for maximum visual and physical comfort:
White Bathrooms and Terrazzo
An all-time favourite, white interior bathrooms emphasise the cleanliness and spaciousness of the space. But white doesn’t have to mean sterile and boring – with the addition of terrazzo tiles such as Niro Granite’s Terra-Arte on the countertops, a lot of character can be added to the space while keeping with the theme.
To keep with the clean look, our pick to go with this would be Prago semi-recessed basin, which helps to retain the neatness of the space – and with fewer exposed surfaces, there are also fewer things to clean. Our Taza one-piece water closet also contributes towards the contemporary minimalist aesthetic to complete the look.

Concrete Look Bathrooms
Going for a raw urban look, concrete-style bathrooms with their assuming smoky surfaces represent an alternative outlook that can be more appealing to those who prefer a more roughhewn aesthetic. The grey colour on concrete also tends to be highly versatile and easy to match with various surfaces and materials.
Console basins such as Albi are ideal complements for these spaces. As for the water closet, something along the lines of Dorset close-coupled water closet would also serve you well with its small footprint and understated outlook.
Timber Look Bathrooms
For those who love nature and love to be surrounded by it, a timber-themed bathroom offers the perfect space to relax and luxuriate. With modern materials such as wood effect tiles, you can have convincing wood grains in your bathroom without having to worry about moisture ruining the wood.
With a timber counter, the bathroom space goes well with a wall-hung basin like Vienna that both matches the aesthetic and also allows you greater freedom of movement around the bathroom. Meanwhile, for the water closet, Berlin close-coupled water closet with its DynaWash capability is a great pick to also conserve water while you enjoy the comforts of nature!
