Opposites do attract, and this master bathroom proves it. Natural elements interspersed throughout enhance the room’s modern, clean design.

Looking for a minimal look that still has a warm and inviting element? Try mixing simple modern finishes with a few rustic accent. This en-suite master bathroom’s clean, white palette and minimalistic decoration definitely focus on that simple clean aesthetic, but the designers were careful to include some rustic elements to unite the space with the rest of the home and create a modern meets rustic look.

Gray shower tiles
Though the bathroom tiles are from the same neutral palette, the different textures of the subway wall tiles and marble mosaic on the floor provide stylish contrast.

“The main conceptual goals behind the design aimed at combining a fresh take on a rustic theme, with a twist of crisp, eclectic infusion,” says Italy Joshua, a designer with Carriage Lane Design-Build Inc.

Where the rest of the home is charmingly cozy and relaxed, the master bath incorporates neutral colors and minimal accessories that add an element of glamour to the home’s design. Recessed lighting and modern glass fixtures complement the space without distracting, and the silver-framed mirrors above the vanity and silver hardware add subtle elegance.

Clean modern standing shower
When designing the master bathroom, the homeowners wanted a glass shower but needed a tub for their newborn. They compromised by introducing a glass panel to the tub, enclosing the shower without detracting from the design.

Tucked away in a corner next to the tub, built-in wooden shelving stands as one of the most distinct features in the bathroom.

“The rustic shelves helped infuse some of the vibe from the bedroom into the en-suite, and balance the two spaces,” Italy says. A niche for storing hygiene items on the shower

The wood shelving connects the bathroom’s design with the master bedroom, which has a warm atmosphere created by wood floors. Bringing in that rugged touch helps unite and balance the spaces, giving them one cohesive feel rather than two disparate looks.
