Choosing the right bathroom can be difficult. With so many styles available it can be hard to find the right one. This style guide shows the different types of bathroom styles to help with your renovation planning.
The Modern Classic
Characterised by clean lines and minimal ornamentation, this style of bathroom is one that will stand the test of time. Colours are often dictated by the surrounding house, perhaps neutral/natural tones or bright and light tones. The modern classic bathroom has function at the core and with some clever design tips, the budget will be spared.
Style and class ooze from a Hamptons style bathroom. Perfect for the coast. For your colour palette - light grey or a light blue. Painted walls bring that fresh feeling, combined with high gloss tiles. Marble is a must. Add a shaker style vanity, plantation shutters, a luxurious free standing bath and you will have a bathroom worthy to feature in a design magazine.
A heritage bathroom can be traditional, with brass taps and old English tiles or with a lighter colour palate, more of a mixed vintage style. Heritage bathrooms have soft curves in the tapware, sink and bath lines. A claw foot bath always adds the element of French chic. This style of bathroom is a great opportunity to incorporate those little one off pieces you find in the antiques store.
It could be all white, with just a few pops of colour in your accessories. It could be black and white with strong, bold lines. However, the most popular minimalist bathrooms these days is the industrial look with a mix of grey/cement style tiling, beautiful bespoke wooden floating shelves and of course, the centrepiece being the freestanding oval bath.
The Glam Bathroom
If you want to take a walk on the wild side with your style, then a glam bathroom is for you. Incorporating lux items such as crystal pendant lights maybe even a chandelier. Think gold highlights in your fixtures and fittings. Think bold statement pieces - this is the place to have fun and hang that oversized, ornate mirror you’ve always wanted.
The Small Bathroom
How to squeeze it all into a small space? A small bathroom can present its own challenges. A wall hung vanity makes every bathroom look bigger. Floating shelves on the wall can help give you that little bit of extra storage. Use neutral tones to keep the space feeling open. You don’t have to shy away from using patterns on the floor, just stick to the slightly larger format, again to prevent the bathroom feeling cluttered.
