Be inspired to create naturally calming Nordic Bathroom Design
A simplicity and beauty that gives a feeling of space
Nordic style continues to captivate interior design, delivering a minimalist decorative style in contemporary home design. At its core it is based on the beauty of simplicity and naturalness, practicality and minimalism.
It’s a style that can now be found in homes around the world, but the trend was born from the cold outdoor temperatures and limited daylight hours found across Scandinavia, with the aim to create an interior purity and brightness that would combat lack of natural light with the predominance of white and light tones.
The style is now more commonly used to create interior spaces that have a visual cleanliness and use light colours to multiply natural light and give a feeling of enhanced spaciousness and calm.
Interpreting this style into today’s modern bathroom design, opting for both white flooring and walls is the perfect choice for being truly faithful to the most original Nordic style.
