Midcentury modern had its heyday in the 1950s and early 1960s. And now, the recent rise in retro fascination has cast this iconic aesthetic back into the spotlight, making it all the rage...yet again! Ready to embrace this on-trend look? Well, your bathroom is a great place to get started. Statement-making geometric tile — on the wall or the floor — adds dimension and instantly changes the vibe of your space. Ahead are 14 midcentury modern bathrooms that aren't afraid to let their beautiful tile shine.
1. Go bright...and blue.
2. In symmetry, we trust.
This salle de bain, designed by Kenowa Builders, relies on symmetry and clean lines. In place of one continuous vanity cabinet, the layout of this space accommodates a pair of matching, his-and-her vanity cabinets, while the herringbone wall tile plays up the overall angularity of the space.
3. Elevate the aesthetic.
For this architect-designed dwelling in Portland, Bright Designlab opted for Carrara marble and cement tile. The smooth, polished surfaces complement the elevated aesthetic without stealing focus from the more audacious elements.
4. Marry midcentury and contemporary.
5. Graphic gorgeousness.
6. Shower in style.
7. Floating furnishings.
8. Accentuate white with natural light.
9. Bathing beauty.
Imagine yourself indulging in a soothing soak in this haven of serenity. A grey-and-white color palette pair nicely with clean lines and polished fixtures, while a large picture window lets in lots of natural light.
10. Behold the beauty of black and white.
11. The power of pendant lights.
12. What’s old is new again.
Remnants of an era gone by, a vintage credenza turned vanity and geometric tile share the spotlight. Sleek white subway tile, classic style light fixtures, and a glass shower enclosure play supporting roles.
