What is it that makes a space, for example a living room, modern in style beyond its architecture? The furniture and decorative elements that make it up, right?
The same thing happens in a bathroom. It is the sanitary ware, furniture and other necessary elements that make the bathroom acquire one style or another.
For this reason, if you are going to reform or build your bathroom from scratch and you are aiming for a modern, contemporary bathroom, in addition to a careful choice of materials to cover the bathroom walls, you need both the sanitary ware and the shower, furniture and other elements that you install are appropriate.
And in this sense, I wanted to collect in this article some of the latest trends in these elements that I just mentioned so that you are up to date with the latest to renew your bathroom.
So, if you want a modern bathroom, take note, I am going to tell you the last of each. We start.

For a few years now, hidden or built-in cisterns have been gaining popularity and, today, in a modern and modern bathroom, it is one of the essential elements along with the sanitary ware, both toilet and suspended bidet.
By hiding the cistern, embedding it in a false plasterboard wall, and installing a suspended toilet, we make the bathroom look “cleaner”, defined and clear.
Even if your bathroom is small, closing the cistern is an aesthetic exercise that will benefit you, since it eliminates superfluous elements and the space seems lighter. Feeling that is enhanced with the addition of the suspended toilet. Another addition is that cleaning and maintenance is much faster and more comfortable than that of a conventional toilet.
So, whether you are renovating the bathroom or building it from scratch, if you want it to be up-to-date and have a contemporary aesthetic, go for built-in cisterns and suspended toilets.
Let’s continue with the next component.
Showers – Shower trays

Although I am a big fan of bathtubs, I have to admit that since it became fashionable to change the bathtub for a shower tray, showers have undergone a huge aesthetic and practical revolution and have conquered all terrain to bathtubs, since Each time they have become more practical, more useful and more beautiful.
In this sense, if you bet on a shower instead of a bathtub, the latest trends have a clear component at the forefront: dishes at ground level.
Thin, ultra-thin shower trays, which can be installed flush with the floor or on the floor, creating continuous spaces without any or minimal interruption between the bathroom floor and the shower.
In addition to eliminating a small but unnecessary step in the bathroom, the sense of continuity offered by these shower trays makes the spaces, although small, light and fluid.
In fact, it is in small spaces where these shower trays demonstrate all their power.
Going even further, the latest trends in shower trays not only opt for thin or flush-mounted shower trays, but also for those that also have an organic aesthetic component.
This means that, right now, the latest shower trays imitate or are made with natural materials such as stone, such as slate, marble, granite, or imitation cement or concrete, among other “natural” materials.
To summarize and taking into account the premise that you are looking for a state-of-the-art bathroom, in terms of shower trays, focus on the extra thin shower trays that can be installed at ground level, and of nature or organic imitation.
Showers – Screens

Although the shower tray is an element that can mark a before and after in a bathroom, it is even more so if the screen itself fits. These, like the shower trays, have undergone surprising changes from the old partitions with thick aluminum profiles to the partitions with an ultra-refined aesthetic of today.
If I had to bet on a model to install in a bathroom where a modern environment is what I am looking for, I have no doubt which one I would choose: Bathroom screens without profiles or with minimal profiles for a minimalist aesthetic and with minimal interruptions .
And it is possible to think that the partitions with black and metal panels are the latest in partitions due to the huge number of photos of them that we see on social networks such as Instagram or Pinterest, but really the latest efforts by manufacturers and designers are focused put in eliminating the profiles, being these those that take the prize and those that I advise you to look or inform you if you want a very modern bathroom.
As with the rest of the elements we are seeing, it is in the small spaces where it really shows how well a screen without profiles or with minimal profiling works.
By eliminating them, the partitions are an almost invisible element that does not take center stage thanks to the fact that it is devoid of the traditional profiles that make it so ugly and the annoying sliding door systems that always end up getting stuck.
Regarding the screens without profiles, there is a whole world of possibilities, depending on the type of shower you want or the space available. Check with your interior designer or construction manager and they will advise you well, since not only fixed partitions like the one we see above these lines have been designed without profiles.
Currently we can find this design in square, folding, sliding, or even semi-circular partitions.
Let’s keep going:
ROCA bathroom cabinet and sink from the INSPIRA collection
Bathroom furniture there are many, many as you well know if you are in the midst of reform and choice of furniture. But here I am focusing on the latter.
Therefore, within all the vast variety there is, the latest trends in bathroom furniture are directed towards the versatility of the furniture itself, making it adapt to any space. Today’s bathroom furniture is chameleonic.
A few years ago, and not many, you could find a beautiful bathroom cabinet from a new collection. But that bathroom cabinet had to have a specific sink and you couldn’t play much beyond the colors and finishes of the cabinet.
The evolution of bathroom furniture has been aimed at greater personalization and adaptability of the furniture in the different bathrooms.
For example, one of the latest collections of the ROCA brand is the INSPIRA series, which consists of three shapes, with which we can create multiple combinations thanks to the sink and cabinet, since they are available in 3 design lines: Round, Soft and Square.
These three lines, to start with, are totally combinable with each other. Being able to create multiple combinations of bathroom furniture.
In addition, the three lines are available in three different finishes, which in this case are Oak City, Fumato Mirror and Gloss White.
All this means that, between the furniture design line, the different finishes available and the option of being able to also add different sinks to the personalized furniture, we have a huge range of possibilities to fully adapt the bathroom furniture to our bathroom, without complications.
Let’s see another essential component:

3D PVC cladding from the Ambiente Blanco collection by Grosfillex
In addition to all the elements that we have seen throughout the article, in order for your bathroom to turn out as you want, a very modern bathroom, the walls must be lined accordingly. It is the shell, yes, but it is also the base on which everything you add afterwards will be sustained.
Having said that, I have to admit that here we enter a somewhat ambiguous and very subjective terrain, since even with decades-old subway tiles, you can achieve a very modern bathroom.
Although, naturally, the coatings also have trends and novelties, and one of them, curiously, are the high-quality PVC coatings, such as the latest tiles and adhesive coatings from the firm Grosfillex.
These easy-to-install coverings are available in a wide range of finishes that imitate all types of surfaces in order to cover the bathroom walls as we please.

And all this without doing minor or major work, since these high-quality vinyl panels are adhered by means of a special adhesive that, depending on the model we choose, will be self-adhesive or we will have to apply it to ourselves.
Let’s keep going.

The taps are the icing on the cake. It is the perfect finish. A bathroom where even the smallest detail is taken care of, is what really makes the difference.
In fact, you can almost ruin everything you have achieved with the rest of the elements if you do not take care of small details such as the taps.
In this sense, there is a clear trend right now in terms of bathroom taps: matte finishes.
Whether in black or white, the shower and bath taps in a matte finish, right now it is something that is having a lot of pull, and it is where manufacturers have been heading in recent years.
Honestly, it is a trend that I do not know if it will last long, since traditional chrome finishes will continue to be on top and will always be in demand, in addition to these combining with everything, unlike the black and white matte finishes that have to be carefully combined.
But if you are looking for something completely current to finish off your bathroom, I cannot fail to highlight this type of faucet, and even more so if it is recessed.
