1. The Minimalist
Minimalist bathroom aesthetics are simple and calming. They are clean, uncluttered spaces that have simple bathroom designs. In order to achieve a stunning minimalist bathroom, there are a few simple steps to follow to achieve this fab bathroom design idea.
Keep your bathroom walls as light as possible. Lighter tones make a room feel larger and airer. This particularly applies to those who have smaller bathrooms. The trick is to ensure your walls are plain and let other objects do the talking.
Purchase ample storage solutions. The trick to any minimalist bathroom is avoiding ‘clutter’. Add a cabinet, mirrored storage or even wall hung vanity units to store away your bathroom goodies. Again, this will work even better for smaller bathrooms.
Use taps and furniture to make a statement. The key to achieving the ultimate minimalist look is choosing statement pieces for your bathroom. You could opt for black features, against a white wall to create a super intense contrast or go for gold and incorporate antique brass fixtures to make room really pop.
Minimalistic bathroom designs rely on limited accessories. That being said, if you have itch to add some added detail to your bathroom, you can find some beautiful minimalistic bathroom accessories from Perch & Parrow .
If you’re a traditionalist you’ll love calm, slightly dated bathroom interiors. Big statements or funky colours are a big no-no for you. Traditionalist bathrooms are comforting and classic. Here we break down all the best features of traditional bathroom ideas
Try to keep colours minimal. Often, traditional bathrooms stick to a very neutral palette, this upkeeps the notion of elegance and the simple design associated with traditional inspired bathrooms.
Nostalgic countertops. Traditional bathroom décor typically features granite, marble or white ceramic vanity tops. This elegant design reflects the vintage vibe traditionalists love about bathrooms.
One thing the Victorians loved was a freestanding bath. Many aspects of traditional bathrooms are taken from different periods, particularly the Victorian period. So, if you have enough space, we would recommend including a Doubled ended clawfoot freestanding bath alongside a freestanding tap to match.
If your bathroom space is limited and your bathroom is on the smaller side, use traditional styled mirrors and fittings to assert that traditional vibe in your bathroom design.
One feature that screams ‘traditional bathroom’ is the exposed traditionally designed showers. Styled out with white tiles and black grout, you can create a beautifully designed showering area.
Add an extra traditional touch with some luxury fluffy hand and bath towels. Choose a colour that will flatter the colour scheme of your room. Christy towels have a gorgeous selection of traditional towels.
House & Home
The industrial-inspired bathrooms originate from old industrial buildings being converted into domestic homes. The vibe consists of, bare brick walls, low lighting a variety of textures and of course Black frame shower doors.
Strip back to basics. One of the most successful ways to accomplish this look would be to expose your home’s brickwork. Sounds scary, we know! But stay with us, because once you’ve braved it, you won’t regret it. Using raw materials like brick create a one of a kind industrial bathroom suite.

Dot an array of accessories around your industrial bathroom. Lush cosmetics packaging looks fab in bathrooms of this style. Their black aesthetics will compliment your room and make it smell yummy.
4. Neutral Decor

If you’re struggling to settle on a neutral colour palette for your bathroom, Dulux can help you put together colours you like to form your favourite colour palette.
Once you have your colour scheme, your next steps would be flooring. We suggest using light wooden floors to really make your other bathroom pieces stand out. The wood against the neutral colour palette works fabulously. The natural aesthetics of the wood will bring home that cosy neutral feel.

Having one wall navy allows having maximum luxe impact without it being overpowering. Use while glossing tiles for any remaining walls. If you have a smaller bathroom, you can still include this beaut colour. We would suggest minimal navy on your bathroom walls and try to include navy in other aspects of the room i.e. furniture or accessories.
Style with light flooring to create a beautiful contrast. We would suggest opting for white mosaic or marble effect.
Once the shell of your bathroom décor is complete it’s time to pull out all the stops. Use gold fixtures to really drive home that luxury vibe. Gold showerheads, Gold taps, gold furniture handle. You can’t have enough of this finish. Because your décor is so simple, you can add as much as you like without looking tacky!

Modern bathrooms consist of clean and simple bathroom décor. In order to achieve the ultimate modern bathroom, use neutral minimal colours.
One of the most favourable aspects of a modern bathroom suite is the use of floating furniture. Wall hung vanities, basins and toilets will not only create a luxe modern bathroom, it will also create a more spacious bathroom. If you’re dealing with a compact space, we certainly would recommend wall hung furniture.
If possible, utilise natural light to open up your bathroom, and create a relaxing, fresh suite.
If you’re looking at a complete ensuite revamp, why not consider a shower room? Shower rooms are a fantastic way to save space in compact bathrooms. Adding a large shower enclosure will make your space appear bigger and provide more room to dance around in the shower! Alternatively, you can include a modern ladder shelf to sharpen up your bathroom look.
