Since the average bathroom remodel costs anywhere between $9,600-$11,000, you'll want to get the biggest bang possible for your buck. This means following the latest trends, creating a comfortable space, and keeping things sleek, interesting, and contemporary.
No matter what look you're going for -- sleek minimalism, midcentury cool, zen simplicity, or futurist glamour -- there's a variety of ultra-modern styles to choose from. Today, we're going to talk about some ultra modern bathroom design trends that will have you hyped for your renovations.
1. Contemporary Colors
The first step to any modern bathroom aesthetic is choosing colors that reflect your love for contemporary decor.
There are a lot of options for doing this, but eggshell white walls with pops of color as accents are a great way to go. Basic, bright white is sleek and chic, and gives you a blank canvas for all your other design ideas.
Good color choices include electric blue, hot pink, and canary yellow. These are bold and unique options that are all expressive and funky. They're also designed to be eye-catching and stand out amidst sterling silver and matte black faucets, countertops, and cabinets.
2. LED Mirror Lighting
To go with your contemporary color scheme, you'll want to look into different styles of mirrors. One of the best things that you can do is to get LED mirror lighting, which illuminates the edges of your mirror so that you can see yourself even in darkness.
Fluorescent white lighting is classic, but why not try out colored LED bulbs? You can get a softer version of the bright color that you choose for your design accents. This is a nice way to draw the room together and show off your unique style.
3. A Matte Black Bathroom Aesthetic
Don't want to incorporate a pop of color? That's okay, too! A fully black bathroom aesthetic is also a good way to go.
Stainless steel is a super durable material, and faucets made from it can be made black and matte. This is perfect for matching with black quartz or marble countertops. It also goes well with sleek white cabinets and silver stainless steel accents, which all together create a classic contemporary vibe.
4. Waterfall Faucets
Most faucets have water in a direct line going straight downward toward a drain. These are usually pretty high pressure.
However, a waterfall faucet is one that releases a stream of water downward while arching it out like a fountain. It's much lower pressure than a normal faucet is, which makes it easier on many people's hands in addition to being aesthetically pleasing.
You can also usually remove the sprayer from the faucet so that you can wash your hands more closely and effectively. Both form and function combine to create the perfect ensemble.
5. Gorgeous Vanities and Cabinets
If you're like most people, you need a lot of storage space in your bathroom. That's why bathroom vanities and cabinets are such a crucial part of your home decor. You can choose from white, brown, silver, and blue styles depending on what goes best with your overall color palette.
Blue is especially good for when you want to go with a pop of color in your bathroom, and the brighter the shade of blue, the bigger the pop. However, for more minimalist bathroom designs, white is a perfect choice. It goes beautifully with matte black faucets and a modern bathtub.
No matter what, make sure that your cabinet matches your vanity. Choosing both from the same collection ensures that your bathroom's look is cohesive. Sometimes it's tempting to accent your vanity by getting two different styles, but this often backfires and ends up clashing, even if the vanity and the cabinet are the same color.
6. A Modern Tub
Speaking of bathtubs, you're going to need to get a good one for your bathroom. A good soak is one of life's simple pleasures, and relaxing with natural bath oils has multiple health benefits, both physical and mental. A relaxing bath can decrease anxiety, loosen muscles, soothe joint inflammation, and clear sinuses, and having the right tub is key.
For an ultra-modern look, it's hard to improve on the classic sleek, simple, white tub, like those offered in Bell and Modern's bathroom collections. They all come in freestanding styles so you can choose the best location to install them. We recommend placing them in the corner of your bathroom behind a curved privacy curtain, but it's 100% your choice!
7. Blissful Shower Heads
While a nice bath is one of life's little luxuries, a long hot shower can be equally luxurious -- especially if you have the right hardware. Your shower head and hardware can give you the modern look and function you want.
That's why you're going to want a tub filler that can stand either in your bathtub or beside it. You can till your tub up with them, but you also can remove them from the rack that they're stored on and use them as showerheads.
Our styles all have adjustable settings, so you can make the water pressure as intense or as soft as you want it to be. This is perfect for washing all areas of your body and getting the right amount of water in your hair while you lather the shampoo in.
