One of the hottest bathroom designs we're seeing this year fuses two amazing styles, modern and rustic, into one beautiful design. Here are some of our favorite bathroom inspirations that pair a sleek contemporary aesthetic with rough natural features like wood and stone.
Aged wood brings warmth and personality to contemporary designs. It is a great way to make the sometimes harsh modern style comfortable and inviting, like this photo featured on Houzz. Rustic wood accents are a popular choice, like the beautiful mirror frames and cabinetry in these bathrooms from Better Homes and Gardens and Feldman Architecture, Inc. As you can tell from all these featured photos, though, wood also looks lovely on the floors, walls, and even the ceiling!
Balancing rustic and modern elements with a neutral color like white keeps bathrooms looking clean and elegant. The white walls in the bathroom below from Decor Pad accentuate the lovely modern sinks and reclaimed wood that has been upcycled into a vanity top. Large areas of white space on bathroom walls, ceilings, and fixtures helps fuse modern and rustic styles.
Rough hewn stone walls and floors juxtaposed with contemporary accents are another interesting way to create a unique rustic but contemporary style. Whether on the floors or walls, the varied shapes, textures, and colors of slate and other natural stones are so visually interesting you really don't need any other bathroom decor! Just look at these inspirational bathrooms from On Site Management, Inc. and the Courchevel in the French Alps!
