Design Ideas for Contemporary Bath Cabinets
Do you know you want a contemporary bath, but are not sure how to achieve it through design? Contemporary baths are often designed with style and comfort in mind, which sounds easy until you look at all the mind-boggling options. Luckily, there are some key tips that can get you to easily achieve the look you want.
A good place to start is knowing what type of wash basin you want. This will narrow your choices significantly.
Pedestal types are simple and offer a clean, typical look.
Under-counter basins are integrated into the counter and do not distract the eye.
Above-counter designs allow for more drawer space. The basin itself can become a decorative piece by standing on top of the counter, giving you extra storage space.
Wall-hung contemporary bath vanities create the idea of space, by being disconnected from the floor.
Some other tips to keep in mind:
Most mirrors in contemporary baths have clean lines and are not busy with too much detail. In fact, the right mirror can make many vanities look modern.
Simple shelves out of glass, metal or dark wood are also the best choice for contemporary bath vanities.
Also, steer clear of any bulky furniture choices for your bathroom. This complicates the design and moves it into another aesthetic, as contemporary is all about sleekness. And be sure to avoid unnecessary furniture, for the same reason.
Avoid too many details on anything you add to your design, from towels, to furniture, to tiling choices. Detail should be used sparingly and only to highlight one or two areas in your bath.
If you follow these rules, you should be able to pull off a modern bathroom with your vanity choice.
