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.
