Luxury modern bathroom ideas for your home

They’re spaces that we use every day, so it’s important to get them right. And being one of the most expensive parts of the home to renovate, making choices for your bathroom that will stand the test of time is essential. Here are some style ideas to make your bathroom or ensuite a space that you’ll enjoy using for years to come.

Words by Cassie Birrer

Go monochrome

It’s easy to be overwhelmed by bathroom tile ideas. Especially in a small bathroom, it can be a good idea to keep things simple by focusing on one colour group – and this doesn't have to mean white. Pull a colour that has been used throughout the rest of the home or make the most of a neutral palette, which won’t interfere with other styling choices – keeping the space feeling fresh and still relevant in the years to come.

The Celine Basin Sink from ABI Interiors is available in a range of neutral colours.

Bring the outdoors in

Nature is well known for improving our health and general wellbeing – making it a great addition to a space that we go to relax. Make the most of skylights and windows to let natural light flow through, or even add in a living green wall. Various ferns, snake plants and peace lilies – amongst others – can work well in a bathroom environment.

Play with texture

One of today’s modern bathroom trends is adding in surfaces that make you want to reach out and touch them. Think concrete, stone and raw edges. Texture can be introduced through modern bathroom tiles, or even with a concrete or stone basin.

Add curves

Straight lines might come to mind when thinking about a modern-style bathroom, but adding curved forms can add a hint of luxuriousness. Soaking in a round bathtub for example, will make you feel like it’s a day at the spa. It’s even said that curved lines make you feel calm and balanced.

Relax in a freestanding tub

A regular freestanding tub can also bring a modern aesthetic to your main bathroom or master ensuite. Today there are plenty of options to choose from, so it’s easy to find the right style for you to enjoy sinking into at the end of a long day – from curved freestanding forms, to bathtubs with sleek lines and modern fixtures.
