WHITE BATHROOM IDEAS FOR A MODERN DESIGN
bathrooms are a staple of modern
residential design. White gives
of the feeling of cleanliness,
purity, and lightness. I am an
architect in New York and owner
of Fontan Architecture. We work
on a variety of project types
including apartment and loft
renovations. All photos in this
post are from our projects in
New York. We will explore the
use of white in bathroom design,
and various white bathroom
You do not have to use marble to make a white bathroom. Porcelain is a really popular material for bathrooms and comes in many different finishes. Porcelain tiles can be uniform colors, have textures, and mimic natural materials such as marble. Some of these porcelains look better than others so as an architect I always go to the showroom to see samples especially if they have large pieces on display. This bathroom has a white statuary marble look porcelain tile. It was installed with tight joints to make the wall look uniform and the tiles are oriented vertically which is a more modern look.
White and off white bathrooms can be overly simple. A sculptural tub can add a bit extra design to a bathroom. If the bathroom is large enough you may want to consider a freestanding tub which has a real luxurious feel to it. The picture below is of an off white bathroom with a freestanding sculptural tub.
A claw foot tub is a classical feature that can actually work very well in a contemporary or modern bathroom.
Sometimes the best idea for a white bathroom is to add some color. All white with white on white is not for everyone. If it is not for you then you should consider mixing some other colors into your bathroom design. The bathroom in this next picture has white walls, a white toilet, and a white sink but also a wood vanity with a blue mosaic marble floor. Don’t be afraid of a little contrast.
MATTE WHITE FINISHES
When making an all white bathroom you may want to use polished finishes but if not matte finishes can be a more subtle option. A matte white bathroom design can be a great idea for a simple contemporary bathroom. This bathroom has matte white marble tiles, matte white Corian, white tub, and white toilet. The tub is an undermount tub with white Corian top and removable face panel. This therapeutic tub required access panels and due to the configuration of the apartment the only place to put access was in the tub apron, which we made custom and removable.
MODERN BATHROOM NICHE
A bathroom niche is the ideal option for a modern bathroom. A niche can be long and linear or vertical and full height. In this bathroom the niche goes from floor to ceiling in the shower. It is in the corner with one wall continuing straight into the niche.
