Modern Kitchen And Bath Design Elements

Ashton Renovations can work in a variety of styles, whether traditional, contemporary, or modern. For many years traditional styles in kitchens and bathrooms was a popular and safe style, but today modern design is emerging more and more as a popular choice. Surprisingly, even in older homes with many traditional elements, modern designs are integrated into the kitchens and bathrooms. What once seemed cold and austere design is now becoming a widely accepted style in many renovations in Toronto. With clean lines and simplicity in design, modern elements in kitchen and bathroom renovations have become the norm.

To achieve modern design there are several elements to consider. Our recently completed ensuite bathroom in Richmond Hill included many of these typical features of modernity.




The modern design of this bathroom is very prominent beginning with the tile work. Both walls and flooring consist of large format 12″ x 24″ tiles installed horizontally and in a non staggered format. The vanity and cabinet are wall hung and feature dark grainy wood flat panel doors with aluminum features. The single hole faucets are chrome and sit atop a square acrylic integrated counter sink combination. The stand alone tub with tub filler as well incorporates a modern square design that is simple.


The tiled shower included in this bathroom complements all the elements of the vanity and tub with a thermostatic shower system in chrome with square details. It also features a full glass enclosure with engineered quartz thresholds and shelves. The bulkhead, which houses a shower light ties in with the design of the shower and adds dimension to the space.




Elements of modern design are also prevalent in the above kitchen renovation in Toronto’s Cabbagetown. Being an older home, it featured many traditional elements, but fused with modern styling. This kitchen as well used dark wood grained panels mixed with aluminum elements and horizontal lines.
