(Back to modern bathroom design home page)

Planning on refreshing your bathroom for 2012? An enhanced functionality, aesthetics and creature comforts are the three aspects to consider... So we don't get left behind design trends while keeping a touch of originality, this year we dare to try new things!


A Feng Shui inspired bathroom, a refuge, a masculine or feminine styled bathroom, traditional, romantic or modern? Having chosen a specific style or mood at the very beginning will guide you with all your choices and will allow you to save both time and money. You can inspire yourself from your own personality and personal tastes... What kind of mood would you like to achieve: warm, sober, elegant, comfy or outright eccentric and exuberant? To help you with these choices we invite you to start by going through our modern bathroom design site's many useful pages, along with decoration magazines taking note of the specific decors you liked.

Colors. In perfect harmony, bathroom colors have to blend themselves together and combine with bathroom furniture and accessories, existing or to be purchased later. Whether neutral or vivd, the selected color shades must create a positive vibration on you... Do not hesitate to pick dark and contrasting colors; they will emphasize and define the sink, wooden vanity and bathtub.

Shower and bathtub. With the size of modern bathrooms having reached unprecedented dimensions, this of course allows us to choose a nice Italian-style shower or even something as slick as an in-floor bathtub, this year's ultimate innovation. A new universe of beauty and modernity, they become an integral part of the house's achitecture...

Sink and faucetry. The mood of the whole bathroom will be reinforced and defined by these two central accessoiries; many new models are available today at today's hardware stores... stone, concrete and metal will be this year's most sought-after finishes, as the natural and pure presentation of these elements evoke their genuine nobility and authenticity.

Furniture and accessories. Again, antique-styled bathroom furniture still have their place in this year's bathrooms with all the style an warmth they bring to the mood of the bathroom. Antique furniture such as an old chest of drawers found at antique stores or grandma's attic can be modified to receive a sink and matching faucets... something very chic!
