Neutral Yet Striking

Neutral doesn’t have to be boring. In this contemporary bathroom, cabinetry with a prominent wood grain and dimensional tiles add texture and interest to the space. 

Texture and Contrast

Neutral-colored tiles with a linen texture and a slightly metallic sheen line the walls of this contemporary bathroom, while the glass tile in the shower mimics a waterfall. A storage cabinet in a rich dark knotty oak finish lends contrast to the space.

Spa-Like Style

A neutral color palette sets a soothing tone in this contemporary bathroom. A blend of recessed lights and sconces flanking the mirror serve to brighten up the space.

Consistent Color Palette

A neutral color palette continues into the water closet area of this contemporary bathroom. The space is separated by frosted glass, which provides privacy while allowing light to filter in.
