The focus of a modern-style bathroom is on the architecture and structure of the key pieces, which means the color palette tends toward crisp, clean white, subtle neutrals, and black. Pops of color show up in the form of accessories such as bath towels and plants.
Vessel sinks can make a striking alternative to under-mount sinks in a modern bathroom or powder room. Look for simple rounded or rectilinear shapes in white, glass, or stone.
A roomy freestanding tub is a popular choice for those who love to soak. But instead of a classic claw-foot or pedestal style (which reads traditional), go for a sleeker, sculptural modern tub. If you like the look of a freestanding bathtub but want to increase accessibility, another option is to choose a partially freestanding tub.
Wall-mounted or single-handle faucets in polished nickel, chrome, or matte black create a modern, minimalist look. For consistency, choose one metal finish and repeat it throughout the bathroom.
Lighting in modern bathrooms is clean, simple, and streamlined. Look for sleek wall sconces, lighted mirrors, and recessed lighting. Mirrors are sleek and frameless, with or without medicine cabinets.
In a modern bathroom, every detail matters. Add that perfect finishing touch with a stack of colorful or beautifully textured neutral towels, a wall-mounted towel warming rack, and a modern planter.
