The mid-century modern design style gained popularity post WWII when families were looking to purchase new homes with modern furnishings. Mid-century is still very much in demand today, combining an understated, uncluttered, clean look that favors function.
When designing a mid-century modern kitchen or bathroom space, it’s important to remember a few key things. Don’t be afraid of color – unlike many other popular styles, mid-century modern is not afraid to explore the bold. This style is big on geometric patterns and textures. When designing in the mid-century modern style, start with one large base piece that draws the eye, then layer in the other pieces to complement, completing the look.
So, how can you bring the functional mid-century modern style to life in your space? Check out some of our current favorite products from our Splash and Spritzo showrooms for some inspiration!
