The kitchen is a significant room in the home, but its importance does not overshadow that of the bathroom. The bathroom is one room where you start and end the day. Some even call it the ultimate judgment zone, and for an excellent reason: the appearance of your bathroom determines how your visitors will judge you concerning cleanliness. The bathroom equally sets the tone for every other part of the home. For the reasons above and many more, the bathroom must be kept in the best shape possible. In this piece, you will learn about top modern bathroom styles that can make your bathroom functional, comforting and welcoming, as it should be.
The in-shower storage is the perfect place to keep items, like body wash, razor, soap, and shampoo. A cheap plastic unit hanging from the showerhead will not do you any good; remember you are not in college anymore. It looks ugly and far from being attractive. Instead, you can opt for ceramic tile shelving installed in the shower’s corner. You can buy this at many of the tile stores and home centers around. Instead of the ceramic tile shelving, you can also go for the in-the-wall shelving. It does not protrude into the shower and still looks attractive. How cool, you would say. Right?
Replace old flooring
If the underlayment is already damaged by water, then it is high time you removed it. The best way to do this is to remove the underlayment and the floor covering together. You can ease things up by cutting the underlayment in the bathroom into small parts; this can be done using a circular saw blade. When doing this, make sure the blade does not cut too deep into the underlying subfloor. Afterward, install an entirely new underlayment on the bathroom floor. Also, choose an underlayment that corresponds to the new design of the bathroom.
Accent tiles are better
You can opt or either glass or mosaic tile, and you will find it attractive. Personally, I prefer the tile. You will not need a truckload of these tiles to give your bathroom a beautiful appearance. They may be few in number, but can still have a significant impact on the bathroom. You can also use the unique tiles as borders or in the tile pattern to make the design stand out in character and color. Glass or mosaic tiles may be expensive, but you will get real value for your money.
Curved shower rod
Adding a curved shower rod to your bathroom can make the place look more modern than ever before. This is among the latest bathroom styles worthy of consideration. They may look small and unimportant, but trust me, they add a lot of space to the shower. These rods look lovely and no need to apply excess tension when installing them to the wall; they can be attached with screws. As a result, they cannot be pulled down quickly after installation.
Installing modern bathroom styles is not enough; you need to ensure proper maintenance of the bathroom. A sparkling clean bathroom will always be welcoming at all times, even if some of the items are not essentially modern.
When it comes to the bathroom, every square inch counts. Get inspired by these easy-to-steal decorating tricks for transforming a small and narrow space.

Splash of Pink
Sticking to an all white bath will keep it feeling airy and bright. In this sleek space, even the floorboards were painted white. For a modern touch, hang a pendant and pull in modular storage pieces. Want some color? Hang an eye-popping magenta shower curtain.

Inviting unique pieces of furniture into the bathroom can add personality to the space. No closets or cabinets? Put a handsome display cabinet to work holding towels and extra amenities like shampoo, soap, rolls of toilet paper.

Shady Days of Gray
A narrow space thrives on consistency and a refined palette. Pairing white with gray gives the space a modern look. Choosing large squared tiles will fool the eye into believing the space is larger than it actually is. Keep the accents minimal so the room feels sleek and uncluttered.

While a monochromatic black and white bathroom is contemporary, it’s also invigorating. Floor to ceiling tiles provides a fresh twist and opens up the really tight quarters. Be smart with storage space by hanging a rack for holding towels within reach.

Order of Operation
There are just so many goodies that belong in the bathroom. If you share this space, bring in a slim storage piece that has separate compartments for holding items for everyone in the household.

Before making any big decisions, think about how your bathroom will be used. If it will be a space for escaping to and relaxing, then design it with that intention. A stunning freestanding roll top bath says: serenity now.

Case of the Blues
If you’re in the mood for color, don’t be afraid to add it to the walls. Be daring and thoughtful with your approach. In this bathroom, one wall gets mosaic tiles; the other gets a coat of navy paint. If your palette flows together, the space will feel cohesive.

Time for Reflection
When you think of a rejuvenating bath, blue immediately comes to mind. This mosaic tiled shower feels open, refreshing, and cool. Accent pieces (rainfall showerhead, hanging towel racks) in shiny nickel are sleek and modern choices.

Singing the Blues
When it comes to a bathroom for the kids, make design decisions that are functional and playful. Blue mosaic tiles keep the room feeling fresh and cool. White (for the ceiling and top portions of the walls) brightens up the room. Utilizing the walls for storage is a smart use of space (especially if you have a lot of stuff).

A sleek pedestal sink helps a tight space feel more expansive. Crackle glazed brick tiles offer an unexpected decorative touch.

A bright white bathroom gets a lift from the modern sink and oversized mirror. Finding unexpected spots (under the sink, along the top of the tub) for storage comes in extra handy when you realize your collection of rubber ducks keeps growing…and growing.

Wallpaper adds an attractive splash of color to the bath, especially when paired with a freestanding sink and modern-style mirror.
