Modern Master Bathroom Ideas to Fuel Your Design Imagination

Of all the rooms in the home, the master bathroom may be the most sacred — a place to decompress and unwind that is distinctively yours. Modern master bathroom design keeps that firmly in mind, helping you get away without getting in the way. How so?

Simple geometries

The modern master bath incorporates graceful curves and/or straight, clean edges. This master bathroom project we completed in Mantua, NJ utilizes a few basic shapes to great effect — the rectangular form is present in the herringbone floor tile, the walk-in shower, the vanity drawers, and the backsplash (which is also echoed in the shower as an accent). By varying sizes and orientation, visual interest is generated from a minimalist design element. The large circular mirror is a nice counterpoint and captures natural light from the other side of the room.

Neutral or basic colors

Modern master bathroom design uses louder or brighter colors sparingly, allowing softer neutral colors to provide a tranquil backdrop. In the opposite corner of our Mantua bathroom, this white freestanding bathtub stands out against the various grayscale applied tones throughout the space, from the steelier gray of the vanity to the medium grays of the floor and shower tiles to the lighter gray of the paint. The white of the wainscoting, doors, and window trim tie the tub in with the rest of the room, while the tub’s placement in the middle of that gray flooring spotlights it as the featured attraction. The greens of the plants on the vanity top and red towels add modest but not overbearing pops of color. 

Natural elements

Many modern master bathroom ideas focus on uniting natural tones, lighting, and material with higher-tech features and functionalities. This master bathroom suite in Clarksboro, NJ sees several modern design ideas in play. A softly lit, spacious walk-in shower employs simple square and rectangular shapes; the subdued warmth of the paint plays nicely with the handsome stone and wood accents. Darker fixtures and lines add contrast. The double vanity with two sinks allows this couple to share their space while providing plenty of storage. Ayars customers often prefer DuraCeramic flooring, which can mimic the look of natural surfaces while also offering great durability. 

Open design

Modern design encourages a sense of depth and openness through the use of outdoor views (where privacy and opportunity allows), mirrors, glass panels and/or doors, and walk-in showers. It may also highlight different features in a single space based on context, such as this master bathroom project in Sewell, NJ. Notice how the dressing table is slightly set in from the walk-in shower, sharing the same room but defining itself as its own area. Subtle design choices like this can make all the difference. No matter how you go about it, feeling free and uninhibited in your modern master bath suite is the key.
