According to Houzz, “To make a bathroom feel inviting but airy, and warm but also contemporary and clean, it’s important to achieve balance.” It is recommended that you:

  • Use a lot of white or crisp off-white to make the room not only feel large and clean but also contrast warmer elements.
  • Use gray and gray-beige shades to bridge warmer and cooler elements.
  • Use a dose of almost any color to make the space feel more welcoming, even if it is a traditionally “cool” color like blue. Any color that brings you joy can make a space feel warmer.


While a modern bathroom remodel will likely include porcelain, glass, mirrors and other “chillier” materials, you can warm up the space by:

  • Using both porcelain tile for a clean look and stone tile for a “spa-like” look, which can be a pleasing combination.
  • Adding touches of wood, whether through the vanity, shelving, furniture pieces or small accessories.
  • Using warmer metal finishes, such as nickel rather than shiny chrome. There has also been an increased popularity in brass and bronze.


Finding a balance between traditional and contemporary accessories can help to create a warm yet contemporary space. You should consider:

  • Including tactile textures, like woven baskets or boxes, stacks of folded towels and a durable rug.
  • Adding a framed photo, framed canvas or quirky art piece.
  • Using a mirror in an engaging shape like a circle or oval or a mirror in a traditional shape with ornate curves.
