It is difficult to compare a modern bathroom with a small corner house where plumbing was barely placed, and the owners did not even hear about the beautiful stylish finishing materials.
The top of the style was considered a tile that the day with the fire was not available. Today, their choice of materials for finishing is huge, and the owners have the opportunity to acquire not what is in the store, but what they like, including plumbing and furniture.
A modern bathroom is not only a brilliant snow-white washbasin and a tile of fashionable colors.
These are combinations of textures and materials, objects that have a purely decorative purpose, natural finishing materials, a special approach to lighting, and functional furniture.
What is it, modern plumbing?
Modern bathroom try to arrange so that it accommodates both toilet and shower. What used to be called a separate bathroom today goes out of fashion.
Many could not afford before such a union of zones in one room due to its small size.
Neither a bath nor a shower cabin on such an area can be accommodated. But perfectly located shower angle. It is enough to isolate it with a light partition and make a drain hole in the floor.
To save space, a regular toilet can be replaced with a pendant. It is more compact in size, it is easy to wipe the floor under it, arrange a floor heating system, and all sewers are hidden behind the trim.
Another fashion trend is a sink-bowl. It is installed on the countertop and can have various forms, including the shape of a pearl shell. The countertop in the bathroom is installed along one of the walls. Note! Bathroom Design Ideas - 2019

Tile in a modern bathroom
In the past, a tile with a pattern, a tile-panel, a border. Today, monochrome tile has taken its place, but with a diverse, very interesting texture.
Borders are not used as such, but a contrasting insert can be used for separation.
Today in the fashion tile gradient colors. As a rule, this is a set, which includes elements of different shades, smoothly passing from one to another. This tile can be both wall and floor.
It is better to purchase this finishing material for the floor and walls in the same place, the same manufacturer and the same collection to get the perfect combination of color and texture.
At the peak of popularity today tile with the texture of natural wood, granite, raw concrete.
Another hit of the season is the unusual placement of plain tiles. For example, small figures are made of it and placed on several sections of the wall in a certain order or randomly.
In fashion and a narrow rectangular tile, which is laid in the same ways that the parquet on the floor - herringbone, squares, runoff, etc. Some prefer tile-honeycombs.
Tiles can be made to finish the walls from floor to ceiling, to the middle of the wall, or in general only those areas that get wet. Popular combination of tiles and textured plaster.
Mirror - a mandatory attribute of the interior of the bathroom. Today, mirrors of simple forms are in fashion in simple, inconspicuous frames without shelves and decorations made using matting or sandblasting technology.
Mirrors can be present on the facades of cabinets or on the shelves of shelves.
Interior color solutions
Today, the first lines of the popularity of colors are natural shades: ivory, asphalt, white, wood, chocolate, black.
This combination is no less close to nature: beige, grassy, heavenly colors. And yet gray in the modern interior is leading.
The fact is that different shades of gray easily adapt to any color variations. These same colors can be embodied in furniture, tiles, accessories and even plumbing.
Lighting in the bathroom today is a way to highlight the merits and hide the disadvantages of a room, as well as to make all reflective surfaces play, be it tiles, mirrors, plumbing or glossy facades.
In addition, we need lighting devices that give light of varying intensity. So, to take a bath, it is better to turn on a frosted lamp that gives a dim light. And if the lady went to the bathroom to do makeup, she needed a brighter light.
Well, the third option - a sconce or spotlights a little brighter than a night light, so that you can visit the toilet at night, and at the same time sleep is not lost from too bright light.
The shape of the lamps can be completely diverse. It all depends on the style of the bathroom.
Some useful tips
The bathroom is rarely spacious. In most apartments, it takes no more than 3-4 square meters. Therefore, it is necessary to arrange it in such a way that there is as much free space as possible. The task is not easy, but doable.
First of all, you should take care of the visual expansion of the room. To do this, you should choose a tile for the walls that are not too large: 10x10 squares or narrow rectangles.
The same rule applies to floor tiles. Let it be miniature. Tile with a picture will make a small space even less perception, so it is better to refuse it.
All the necessary accessories and household items can be hidden behind the mirror doors of the lockers or in the storage system under the table top, and not to be shown off.
Properly selected color and light will help to achieve the effect of a spacious room.
