Don't be afraid to decorate with bold colours when tiling or painting getting the contrast right with the chrome and the gloss. If using curtains be subtle with the designs and colours but preferably go for stylish roller blinds.
For the sanitary ware go with wall-hung or standard close-coupled toilet and basin with pedestal with acute angles and a contemporary design. Abstract towel rails and wenge wall-hung furniture fit well in the fantasy bathroom giving it that calm almost surreal look.
Showerbaths are a great practical way of optimizing the space so that you have the comfort of both bathing and showering. Walk-in showers are also very popular in the modern bathroom and if buying a shower enclosure for the modern bathroom choose one with a chrome structure over white.

A very functional design can be incorporated for bathrooms as small as 5' X 8' in dimension. Sacrificing a large closet or partitioning off a small area of a larger room will provide the area needed. The first tip should be taking into account the location of electrical outlets and water sources. If these vital utilities do not already exist the key components of the room which are the toilet sink and tub or shower should be roughly sketched into the floor plan to allow proper placement of these utilities. The second factor will be the entrance door placement as this will determine the layout of the bathroom. If the door is located in the center of the room the toilet and sink will usually be placed on one side of the room with the tub or shower on the other side.
Either tiles or wooden floors can be used. Tiles should be a rustic colour and can be used to create elaborate mosaics. Wooden floors should be varnished to match the furniture. Decorating may see a stenciled motif used as a border and the technique of rubbing paint on the walls with a sponge gives the room that worn natural look.
The Edwardian and Victorian styles of the time are still a popular choice today. They look exquisite in a villa or cottage bathroom and never loose their appeal in terms of design.
