What is a contemporary bathroom?

One of the first things to establish is what we mean by the term “contemporary” when talking about a bathroom style. Many people speak of "contemporary" and "modern" interchangeably, but these are actually two distinct and different styles.

In this sense, “modern” represents a specific time period, roughly between the 1920s and 1950s, where futuristic, forward-thinking designs were all the rage. This look is considered a design classic and is still recreated to this day.

“Contemporary”, however, represents any type of style that is current and on-trend, i.e. a style that is popular today. You’ll find all the very latest contemporary bathroom trends in our style guides.
