Use built-ins to save space and to reduce clutter in the room

First of all, what you need to know is that any contemporary space is defines by clean and simple lines. In contemporary bathrooms, you should look to create unbroken horizontal lines and to avoid curvy, undulating planes. Try a stripped-down approach. Another defining feature should be the lack of clutter. Everything should have a designated place, tucked out of the way.

It’s important to create harmony between the layout and the actual décor

The contemporary style is a celebration of materials and everything should look authentic.

1. Don’t try to hide wood behind fake finishes and don’t try to alter the materials. Instead, think of how you can make them stand out and how you can create contrasts with them.

2. You can add drama to a bathroom and make it stand out without using ornate details.

3. Create contrasts and keep things simple. As for the colors, use the hues you like and pay attention to the way they interact with the material choices.
