The bathroom is such an important space in the home; it is the place we go to relax, be intimate and see ourselves in our most raw and fragile state. There are so many styles of bathrooms available these days, from classic to country, and from minimalist to eclectic—the choice is seemingly endless. The humble bathroom, in terms of interior design, is scrutinised now as much as any other room, and is subject to the changing decorating fashions and trends.

One style of bathroom that never goes out of fashion is a modern bathroom. Sleek and elegant, with a fairly limited colour palette, a modern bathroom is free of heavy ornaments and dated tones. Instead, it favours functional, durable and practical pieces. A modern bathroom also pays attention to storage, something that old bathrooms seemed to ignore. Nowadays, both men and women have a growing list of beauty products, and of course, require the correct amount of space to effectively store these items. Today on homify, we are going to look at 6 wonderful examples of modern bathroom designs to help you navigate this seemingly challenging decorating trend.

A neutral combination of beige and white is timeless and classic. The double sink combination is great too, it means that there won't be any more fights over the basin in the morning rush! Sleek and geometric in its design, this is a great example for those who want to implement a style that will never date, and withstand the constant change in home decorating trends. DO Design Studio have created a serene and calm space, conducive to relaxation and respite—the perfect words to describe what feelings we should achieve in the bathroom.

Quirky accessories

Bowles & Bowles show us how to implement some exciting storage solutions into our bathroom with this mesh unit. If you have bathroom products that you would love to have on show, such as this luxurious robe and bath products, why keep them tucked away and out of sight? This is a really different and unique piece that will surely have your guests wanting the same in their homes!

Freestanding wonders

Rachel Angel Design has created this serene and delicate bathroom space with this free-standing bath tub and detailed feature wall. For those who cannot live without a bath, this space will become your own personal retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life. The egg shape hugs the contours of your body, allowing you to lay back and chill out. The design of the taps and shelf is ingenious too—situated right above the tub, you can have all your salts, soaps and oils at arms reach for the moment you decide to sink into the soothing bath water. 

Dark & distinguished

Lipton Plant Architects have created this stunning bathroom oasis. Using a complementary palette of white and charcoal, this room has a sultry and mysterious aura. Both privacy and natural light have been considered, with the clever placement of high level windows in the top corner. This allows the angle of the sun to penetrate the room, whilst ensuring that the occupants can bathe and shower without being concerned that their intimate time is on display. The shower, is of course, the absolute focal point of this space. With a gently cascading stream of water, a set of stairs leads you to a recessed part of the floor, where you can close your eyes and imagine you are on holidays, bathing underneath a waterfall.

Simply glowing

This sink by Keir Townsend is so unique and different, and very unlike anything we've seen before. Resembling an amber stone, the sink appears to glow from the inside out—which is exactly how you should feel after you've freshened up! The ornate crystal taps, in conjunction with the soap and beauty holders are made from the same material, bringing the look of the accessories and handles together. Standing out against the golden brown wall tiles, this bathroom appears to be earthy and natural. 

Timber tones

A teak bathroom and bathtub combination is the ultimate in at-home luxury. Resembling a Swedish spa and sauna, you can feel as though you are on an alpine holiday every day of the year. William Garvey Ltd are responsible for this stunning modern setting. If you look closely, the tiles behind the shower are wooden too, tying the shelves, bath and shower all in together.
