White Midcentury Modern Bathroom with Blue Tile Accent Wall
Fixer Upper host Joanna Gaines chose handmade tile and dry-stacked it—that is, applied it without grout in the spaces between each piece—for a dramatic new look with the quirky style her sister favors.
The beauty of Quartz goes way beyond its good looks. You can find it in array of colors and it’s more durable and stain resistant than porous marble and granite which can absorb stains very quickly. This quartz tub surround will hold up well to daily use and makes a bold statement in a Mediterranean inspired blue.
Lavender Midcentury Modern Bathroom With Gray Marble Tile and Purple Tile Accent Strip
A unique floating wood vanity is a beautiful geometric frame for the white sink. An iridescent purple tile accent strip shines under the mirror lighting and appears again as an accent in the shower. Gray and white marble tile coats the floor and continues up into the shower.
Penny Round Tile Accents Add Color and Personality to Neutral Modern Bathroom
To lay the groundwork for this modern bathroom, designers started with a neutral color palette that would reflect the natural light let into the space from the skylight above. Then, they added modern wood cabinets and a gray countertop to warm the space. To give the room a touch of personality, a gray, black and white penny round tile backsplash was added, and a gray and white chevron floor was laid. In the shower area, the walls are covered in off-white tile with a penny round tile inset that matches the backsplash to tie the space together.
The graphic patterns and bold colors characteristic of midcentury style can overwhelm a small space. But with a little creativity you can get the same effect, as designer Michelle Lord did in this bathroom update. Adding a lattice panel between the vanity and toilet/bath area not only created a sense of privacy but also incorporated pattern and texture, without straying from the all-white and wood palette.
This elegant bathroom seems part of the lush environment outside with a long window that lets in all the greenery. Glass walls help the shower area visually disappear. Hardwood floors warm up the white tub, paneling and subway tile backsplash.
This adorable midcentury modern bathroom is filled with fun vintage accents and pops of color. An antique telephone ties in neatly with the black and white dressing table. And just try not to smile at the mint green bathtub and sink.
After taking this dated mid-century bathroom down to the studs, the homeowners opted for a more modern look. Adding an angular toilet and bath fixtures, as well as the stacked subway tile gives this guest bath a clean, modern vibe.
The wood flooring in the sink area transitions to a sloped floor to accommodate the open shower, while a textured wall and a series of niches delight the eye while providing practical functionality. The open shower’s sensuous wall of texture is reminiscent of mid-century patterns.
