If you want your bathroom design to reflect an updated, sophisticated style, you'll want to explore the range of designs available for modern bathrooms.

Often defined by clean lines and efficient but elegant use of space, modern bathrooms incorporate a wide range of elements to create a cosmopolitan, up-to-the-minute design aesthetic.

One of the most common elements in current modern bathroom designs is a standalone, raised sink, often in rounded or gently curving stainless steel or porcelain. This bold, flowing design is as much a statement as a space saver, as it doesn't require the sink to be set in a larger cabinet, creating an elegant "floating" effect.

Other elements of modern bathroom design include the use of contrasting materials like steel, stone, wood and tile or porcelain to create a Zen-like intersection of natural and man-made materials.

Commonly, modern bathrooms tend to feature a combination of clean, angular, understated furniture features along with more flowing sink and light fixtures, for a minimalist, soothing and elegant effect.
