Bring In the Just-Right Texture

For contemporary style, don't overload your bathroom in patterns, trimmings and colors — leave that to the maximalists. Instead, lean into tone-on-tone texture, which delivers visual interest without overwhelming the senses. In this sleek powder room, charcoal-gray tiles, laid in a herringbone pattern, create a chic background for the floating stone basin sink and wall-mounted fixtures.

Snag a Can of White Paint

Start your design with a blank slate and a hallmark of contemporary style: clean, white walls. Built in 1900, this bathroom throws back to its Victorian history with black-and-white hex tile floors. The sleek freestanding bathtub is a modern take on the traditional clawfoot, and a floating oak vanity is bedecked in brass fixtures and hardware.
