Sleek and Simple Solutions for the Modern Bathroom

The design industry is seeing a movement towards airy, simple and modern bathrooms as of late.  Muted colors, less patterns and polished vanities are making their way into many home renovation projects. By focusing on less to fill the space, and highlighting the finishes and elements that make a bathroom functional, the result is a more serene and modern bath experience.

Renin has leveraged the surge of modern bathrooms by offering backlit mirrors and medicine cabinets that enhance the functionality and complement the contemporary aesthetic.

Backlit Mirrors for the Modern Bathroom

These mirrors emit directional light at eye level and avoid the shadows that often cast from overhead lighting, making daily tasks like styling and shaving more ideal.  The LED lighting illuminated through these frameless backlit mirrors are energy saving, modern and visually expand the room’s size.

Renin’s selection of LED-backlit mirrors may also offer these additional features:

  • Sensor touch on/off control with integrated dimmer offering convenience and ambiance
  • Low profile design creates more space by keeping the cabinet flush to the wall
  • An Integrated wireless speaker now makes getting ready an experience!
  • Encased LED light strips offer a more balanced lighting effect

Modern Medicine Cabinets for your Bathroom

To keep in line with the spacious and modern bathroom theme, floating vanities and minimalistic cabinets are the perfect way to achieve this.  But this leaves the need for an alternative storage solution.  Medicine cabinets keep necessities tucked away, without adding bulk to an airy bathroom space.

Here are a few highlights from Renin’s medicine cabinet collection:

As a designer, I am loving the trend towards contemporary finishes and fixtures for the modern bathroom.  This focus allows for a more spacious and spa-like experience.  Not a bad feeling to walk into!  Renin’s backlit mirrors and medicine cabinets fit into this trend perfectly through their practicality and modern composition.
