Find all the info you'll need on contemporary bathrooms, and get ready to create an up-to-date bathroom space in your home.

If you're looking to add an updated and elegant design to your bathroom, you'll want to explore the many style options for contemporary bathrooms.
Most often defined by clean lines, simple but elegant design and the use of modern materials, contemporary bathroom designs can create a relaxing, sophisticated bathroom space.
One of the chief elements to consider if you're creating a contemporary bathroom design is the combination of different materials. Granite, stone, wood and stainless steel are common choices for contemporary bathrooms, and in combination, these man-made and natural materials complement each other and create appealing visual contrast.
Another common feature of contemporary bathroom design is a standalone or "floating" sink basin. These are often made of elegantly curving porcelain or stainless steel, and they can be seated on wooden or metal bases or cabinets. This airy, space-saving sink design adds a current-day feel to any contemporary bathroom.
