Scandinavian bathroom design is one of the trendiest styles these days. It’s practical and minimal, so it doesn’t cost a lot to do a remodel. But it feels anything but cheap.

It’s full of fresh whites with leafy green and wooden hints, making it feel elegant and cozy all at once. Dark metal fixtures add a grounding element and a timeless feel. It feels a little like being in a spa in the Norwegian countryside.

We’d recommend a porcelain sink with copper or dark metal fixtures, but metal sinks and bamboo sinks are also popular as long as there’s enough white to balance them out.

A mix of lavish and rustic, the Mediterranean bathroom turns natural colors and themes into decadent bathroom bliss.

Tile melds with thick curtains and cushy ottomans, brass and gold fixtures complement marble sinks and counters, and rich wooden furniture mingles with metal detailing.

It’s the perfect bathroom for those who want a luxurious escape without sacrificing warmth or personality.

In Japan, the bathroom is a space to unwind and relax.

Many bathrooms consist of two separate rooms. There’s an anteroom with a sink and furniture and a second room with a tub and shower. A bather is expected to rinse off in the shower before getting in the bath, as the tub is used for soaking, like in a jacuzzi.

We love how this design plays with doors and separate spaces to make a restorative bathing area seem even further from the stresses of life.

The no-nonsense European bathroom design is practical and minimal, yet calming in its simplicity. Almost everything is wall-mounted to maximize space, including the toilet, shower head, sink, and faucets.

Walls and floors are kept clear and mirrors are used to create the illusion of more space.

The color scheme is mostly white, though creams and light-colored woods fit nicely. It’s the ideal look for a small bathroom with only a shower or a half bath.

Your bathroom is a place where you refresh, unwind, and get away from it all. Why not make your escape all the more satisfying by adding some international flair to your bathroom décor? Start your journey around the world by browsing MR Direct’s collection of bathroom sinks.
