Grey Modern Bathroom

If you’re looking to achieve an up to date, contemporary style, there’s a number of panels and furniture at The Panel Company that feature a sleek, modern appearance and are suited to just about any bathroom. Often, the walls in modern bathrooms are characterised by a faded look with subtle colourways, alongside square and compact-looking cabinets that add an effortless finish to the room and offer a minimalist appearance.

Mineral chromite panels
If you have a larger bathroom and are looking to achieve a contemporary style, a great way to do this is to use different, contrasting panels in the same bathroom, creating an effect similar to the one pictured above. The mineral chromite panels from the Decorwall Elegance range create a 3D-effect feature, helping to uplift the furniture that it’s placed behind and create an even, spacious look, adding interest with a textured finish. These versatile panels can also be used as an entire installation, though we would only recommend this design approach if your bathroom has enough light coming in to prevent the space from feeling dark..
