Creating a Contemporary Bathroom

Your bathroom may be one of the rooms that you and your guests use most in your home, however, it doesn’t always get the styling it deserves. Here at the Cheshunt Bathroom Centre, we discuss how to create the perfect contemporary bathroom, just in time for you and your guests this Christmas.

When it comes to restyling a room, you don’t always have to make huge changes to inject some energy back into the space.


It can be surprising what a fresh coat of paint can do for a room. To create your perfect contemporary bathroom, begin by freshening up the paintwork. Typical colours for bathrooms are neutral shades such as cream or ivory, however, if you’re feeling a little braver, you may also opt for a pastel orange, lilac, green or blue. If your bathroom is on the small side, consider using light and space paint, available in most DIY stores. Light and space paint has been created with light reflecting particles, helping to provide the illusion of more space.

Update the basin

Contemporary bathrooms will make use of a modern, white bathroom suite. However, you may find coloured sinks and baths in much older homes. Updating the suite in your bathroom isn’t a small job, but will certainly have a great impact.

It’s important to remember that there are several styles of bathroom available and you do no need to opt for a standard rectangular bath and sink if it does not fit well with the space available. If you’re unsure what size and style suite would suit you, talk to the professionals.

Freestanding baths and separate showers shout contemporary luxury, however, the introduction of waterfall taps and modern accessories will also update your bathroom’s style in no time.


To create the perfect contemporary bathroom, you will want to ensure you create plenty of storage space so that no unnecessary items are on show. Use mirrored bathroom cabinets for products and stylish wicker baskets to store rolled towels.
