Why Flexibility Is Important for a Modern Bathroom Design

Urban Low Height and Standard Height Vanities

Successful modern bathroom design incorporates both functionality and style. Whether minimalist or ornate, designs that stand out do so because they are unique. No matter the ultimate vision when designing a modern bathroom, you can’t achieve it without flexibility. This important trait applies to all participants in the process, including clients, designers, and product suppliers.

Let’s explore how flexibility applies to the many facets of the design process:

Aesthetic Preferences

Modern bathroom design means different things to different people. Some people prefer warm wood tones and concrete basins, whereas others gravitate to metallic finishes and glossy tile. Being flexible and having a robust palette of materials, textures and finishes to draw from is essential for matching the aesthetic preferences of every client.

Lifestyle Requirements

Understanding a luxury client’s lifestyle needs—both now and in the future—is the key to a successful design. Whether it’s planning for aging in place, accounting for the evolving needs of children as they grow, or planning for ample storage of a fragrance collection, it’s important to generate flexible solutions.

Working with a provider like Hastings gives you the freedom, versatility, possibility, and potential you need to meet your clients’ design and lifestyle goals.

When you work with Hastings, you can be confident that you have access to leading-edge products and forward-thinking designers with a finger on the pulse of the luxury bath industry.

Design Limitations

Whether it’s a structural element that can’t be moved or a strong client preference that you must accommodate, design limitations are an opportunity for creativity. A tiny powder room with  limited surface area on the countertop is the perfect place for a VOLA magnetic soap holder. A couple with a large height difference could benefit from the adjustability of a ceiling-mounted Punto mirror. Design for any layout, footprint or room size with the infinite permutations of the Urban vanity collection and turn obstacles into potential.

Although challenging, overcoming design limitations can be the secret to developing unique and creative design solutions that add enhanced value and individuality to a space.
