The bathroom as an exclusive space for self-care

In recent years, the bathroom, as part of the conception of the modern home, has undergone a major positive evolution. From a simple utility space, it has become a proper room for taking care of your body and mind.

Major changes have therefore also affected the bathroom’s architecture and interior design. Materials for floor and wall coverings, as well as sanitary ware and furnishing elements, now meet such high aesthetic and technological quality requirements that they are comparable to what planners and designers previously conceived for other spaces in the home.

It is not uncommon for modular, sectional and customisable bathroom furniture ranges to be extended to the bedroom and even to the living room and kitchen, creating spatial continuity between all the rooms in the home through an interplay of finishes, proportions and interpretations of the requirements for each specific functional need.

The bathroom, in line with this innovative and constantly evolving trend, has therefore lost its original connotation as a purely functional space, demanding meticulous design of all its elements. The choice of bathroom tiles, for example, is no longer exclusively linked to the need for ease of cleaning and maintenance, but is the result of a careful evaluation of a series of ideas and inspirations that are not necessarily linked to the bathroom as an autonomous space with its own fixed individuality.

Together, let’s take a look at how even the choice of the tile installation pattern in the bathroom, as well as the design of the other parts and elements, can define an innovative project that contributes to the evolution of the concept of the room quintessentially devoted to well-being and relaxation.

 

Tile sizes for the modern bathroom from small to medium, large and even very large

The choice of tiles for the modern bathroom can draw on an almost infinite range of sizes, colors, effects, textures and surface finishes. To narrow the field and define a design that is coherent and balanced in relation to the general context and the other spaces in the home, it is necessary, as a first step, to build on a well-structured moodboard, gradually converting inspirations into real, concrete proposals that do not however lose their poetic character and the communicative power of the initial idea.
