Top Modern Bathroom Ideas

A space built for daily routines and morning or evening relaxation, the bathroom can often be overlooked as a space for stylish, yet practical design. We’ve put together our top styles designed to instantly elevate your bathroom space while maximizing a clean aesthetic and supreme functionality.

Modern Bathroom Mirror Ideas

Adding a mirror to your bathroom space not only provides a spot to complete your daily routine and check yourself as you head out for the day, it also works to make the room feel more open and reflect any source of natural light while acting as a fabulous decor piece. Based on the shape and length of your vanity or sink, select a round, square or rectangular design to suit your space. Two sinks call for two mirrors to provide a his and hers space that is instantly recognizable. A smaller, more amplified mirror for close-up care becomes a piece of decor with a hint of luxurious marble added to its silhouette. If space allows, a mirror that doubles as a medicine cabinet/storage unit brings hidden storage space for all of your favorite makeup and beauty products without taking up valuable square footage or counter space.


Modern Bathroom Wallpaper Ideas

No longer just reserved for bedrooms and dining spaces, wallpaper is a fantastic way to bring visual appeal to a bathroom space whether a half bath tucked under the stairs or a master suite bathroom space begging for an update. Woven wallpapers can stand up to steam and moisture without peeling or bubbling, making them an excellent choice for those looking for a bit of color or pattern. Stripes add a playful, yet preppy look perfect for traditional and even coastal-themed spaces, while a damask print in a dark shade brings a hint of romance to bathrooms large and small. Renting or unsure of your aesthetic? Opt for a removable design that allows you to get the look temporarily without damaging paint or walls.


Modern Bathroom Bath Mat Ideas

To keep your feet warm and your floors dry, bath mats are great for the space in front of the bath or shower as well as in front of the vanity or sink where you’ll spend most of your time flossing, brushing, or checking out your complexion. Select a design that offers a complementary hue to your surroundings and a heavy, dense pile for both warmth and trapping moisture. A playful design like the Jonathan Adler Zebra Bath Mat above brings animal-friendly, safari chic to your bathroom, while the Twin Square Bath Mat brings a plush, shaggy touch for endless comfort.


Modern Bathroom Vanity Light Ideas

When it comes to accenting a bathroom it's important to focus on the fixtures. Bathroom vanity lighting offers incredible brightness overhead while completing your morning or evening routine. Simple designs with visible bulbs tend to lend a more contemporary or even Art Deco feel, while a silhouette-driven design provides streamlined, straightforward style with minimal flair. While not necessary, matching the finish of your lighting to the hardware in your bathroom does create a cohesive look that appears both effortless and skillfully strategic. Pair your vanity lighting with an overhead light source such as a striking chandelier or playful pendant and confirm that all lighting is damp or wet-rated to ensure they stand up to all matters of steam and moisture.


Modern Bathroom LED Bath Bar Ideas

Able to be installed horizontally or vertically to suit your daily routine needs, LED Bath Bar lighting is both versatile and stylish, while offering directly diffused light for your space. Balance out either side of your mirror for ideal side lighting when putting on makeup or completing your morning skincare routine, the lengthy silhouette works to add height to your space and elongate your vanity area. Outfitted with LED technology, these designs are more powerful and energy-efficient for a lasting light source you can feel good about. Look for a variety of finishes from chrome and black to white and bronze to effortlessly accent your bathroom while creating a go-to spot to start and end your day.


Modern Bathroom Accessory Ideas

Now that you’ve decorated your bathroom to your liking, its time for the best part– accessories! For a smartly decorated and fully functional space, every corner should be outfitted with specific items. For the countertop, a matching set for soap, toothbrushes, daily essentials and more creates a cohesive look for a soothing space. For expansive counters looking to stay prepped for getting ready morning, noon, and night, a jewelry stand or stunning jewelry box holds everything in place while offering a visually striking storage design. To keep your space clean and clutter-free, a cloth laundry hamper and push-pedal waste bin ensure ample room to toss and store.
