Whether you’re enjoying a relaxing shower before work or getting ready for a fun evening, your bathroom is a place where you should be able to decompress and have time to focus on you. With this in mind, it makes sense that homeowners are increasingly seeking bathrooms with stunning details and innovative amenities. In particular, modern homes pair the forefront of technology with stunning minimalist design to create a haven of a relaxing bathroom.
Investing in beautiful, modern bathrooms can significantly add to your overall home value—and your quality of life. At Clarum, we work with you to create the bathroom of your dreams in your modern custom home. Read more for our expert tips for creating a luxurious spa in your own home!
There are few things more abrupt than harsh, artificial lighting in a bathroom. Instead, embrace daylighting: the strategic placement of windows and skylights to effectively bring sunlight into your home. The science of daylighting design goes beyond providing enough light into a specific space. It also involves balancing heat gain and loss, glare control, and variations in daylight availability.
Work with your custom homebuilder to make daylighting decisions surrounding building form, siting, climate, and components such as windows and skylights in your bathroom.
With today’s bathroom amenities, you can create a luxurious spa right in your own home. Spa-like modern bathrooms can include heated towel warmers, deep soaking tubs, electronic controls that allow you to preset sprays, temperature, and steam settings.
To take the deluxe-factor up a notch, consider built-in cabinetry beside the shower with a warming drawer to keep your linens toasty, and a stereo system that can play your favorite music.
A minimalist, modern bathroom can leave a lasting impression with its simplicity and elegance. Simple color schemes, straight lines, and sharp edges blend with glass walls, stone or marble tiles, and wood cabinets—all creating an aesthetic to take your breath away.
To further enhance the look and feel, consider a relaxing color palette and elegant marble tiles. You can also include beautiful vanities to add style and comfort to your bathrooms.
One of the most popular trends in modern bathroom design are large walk-in curbless showers with rainshower-style showerheads. Because modern homes are all about clean, sleek lines, it’s no wonder that homeowners are incorporating curbless showers in their modern home design.
Some of the benefits of a curbless shower design include:
Though natural light is your best friend in the daytime, you’ll also want to consider chic lighting options when the sun goes down in the evening. A lighting designer can help provide the perfect lights for all of areas of your bathrooms so that you look your best whether you are getting ready for your day in the office or for a night on the town.
Consider areas for lighting, such as wall-mount lights by the mirror, and ideas like cove lighting in the ceiling for an extra-deluxe style.
Designing a gorgeous, modern bathroom can improve your quality of life no matter what time of day it is. Don’t overlook one of the most important parts of your home—start a conversation with your modern homebuilder today to create a bathroom you’ll love.
