Here we take a look at ten bold design moves for a modern bathroom that stands out from the rest.
Winged light bulbs, part of an Ingo Maurer fixture, bring levity to Hill's bathroom. The space features a zinc wall by Houston metalworker George Sacaris, who also did the bathroom and kitchen cabinets.
The Trzebiatowskis’ bathroom retains the spirit of Arizona heat with its shocking magenta ceilings, floors, and walls. The vanity is anything but—opting for art instead of a mounted mirror—and is made from sanded and sealed oriented strand board (OSB), a waste material typically used in framing.
The six-by-six-foot shower boasts a hardwood-slatted deck, which allows water to seep into a concrete pan that empties into the main drainage system. The cage of bamboo poles provides the requisite privacy to the bather.
To create a sense of visual connection, Vinciguerra and Santiard set a colored window between the two rooms. They spent days making sure that the green transparency would meld nicely with the shade of green on the kitchen shelves.
Clayden claims that Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey was the inspiration for his bathroom.
The blue-tiled master bathroom stands in contrast to the muted tones of the rest of the house. The tile is recycled glass from China.
The curving exterior of the podlike bath and shower cuts an elegant form at the other end of the room.
Bruce and Kirsty are obsessively tidy, so copious storage was a must. An entire wall in their bathroom opens to reveal a cabinet that is exactly the depth of a fat roll of toilet paper, and one of their kitchen cupboards was specially fireproofed in order to house that dastardly appliance, the toaster.
The bathroom mirrors the same materials, colors, and design principles as the rest of the building.
