What is an Urban Style Bathroom?
Initially, the urban style was defined by inner-city living with a moody and dramatic vibe, blending elements of contemporary, industrial and modern bathroom designs together. While urban chic embraces a warehouse and loft structure, the key stylistic component is contrasting decor. For example, exposed brick and heavy metal railings can be softened by open planned living, and metal framed mirrors, can complement light colour furnishings and rich fabrics.
The key colour palette to the urban style is the refined and sophisticated light neutral colourway made up of whites, blacks and greys. Whilst simultaneously allowing contrasting décor to take centre stage, a brighter colour, commonly yellow, is featured to compliment the darker colours, giving a modern bathroom design more life.
Your urban style bathroom will not be complete without a statement piece. Feature tiles are a simple way to incorporate a statement piece in your urban concept bathroom; tiles that exhibit a graphic effect and cool colour palette are excellent choices. In addition, patterned towels, large artworks or floor to ceiling curtains will add texture to your urban oasis.
Dramatic backdrops and statement accessories work together to create a dash of the urban style in your modern bathroom design. Check out Novalé’s high-quality bathroom renovation projects recently completed throughout Sydney.
Urban Tiles: Terrazzo Stone
White bevelled-edge metro tiles – once used for practical purposes in hospitals and metro stations – has been considered an urban tile trend for a long time. Although, at Novalé, we have recently seen terrazzo stone become a staple choice for modern bathroom designs as it offers a more exciting twist for a dramatic backdrop.
Terrazzo stone is polished concrete featuring speckled chips of marble, quartz, granite, glass, and other suitable materials. White is a classic pick for bathrooms as the colour symbolises cleanliness, which is what everyone wants to achieve – particularly post 2020.
Terrazzo tiles can be mirrored onto walls, floors and benchtops to create a seamless effect. The stone’s best attribute is total customizability; manufacturers can produce various hues and styles of the stone base and the speckled chips according to personal desires.
Most popularly, terrazzo tiles are designed with a pared-back neutral palette, making this stone one of the most versatile materials for a bathroom. Whilst adding interesting texture and shapes, creating the perfect base for an urban style modern bathroom design. Opt for a dark grout in between such light-coloured tiles to create a more dramatic look, reinforcing the urban style statement piece.
Urban Tapware and Accessories
Tapware and accessories are the most straightforward bathroom aspects to upgrade; quite cheaply, a tried bathroom can look state-of-the-art with some new and shiny tapware. As of late, gold tapware has become increasingly popular, although this material corrodes more quickly than other stainless steels and can often clash with the monochromic statements in an urban style and modern bathroom design.
Black matte is now the star of Urban bathrooms. This modern bathroom design staple gives excellent durability alike traditional stainless-steel tapware and offers an “on-trend” stylish finish.
“When black tapware first came in, people were really nervous about it. ‘It’s a bit strong for me”, ‘It will probably be out of fashion within the next few years.’ No, it hasn’t. It’s been with us for a really long time now. It’s a strong option that isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. And black tapware goes beautifully with coloured tiles.” says Neale Whitaker, one of Australia’s foremost style gurus.
