In first place is contemporary bathrooms with 1,024 Pinterest boards.
Contemporary style bathrooms will always be popular, with their ability to create such a clean and simple spacious environment.
Focus on creating sleek lines when choosing showers, baths, and fixtures – opting for square and rectangular styles where possible.
Remember to stick to simple colours too, taking darker and lighter tones to accent different features within the bathroom to bring that desired modern feel.
2 – Victorian Bathrooms (1,021 boards)
Next up is Victorian bathrooms with 1,021 Pinterest boards, a similar style to traditional bathrooms in 4th place
The complete opposite to contemporary, getting the Victorian style right is about choosing statement traditional features and putting details into the décor.
A free-standing roll top bath is probably the most popular feature of a Victorian style bathroom.
Choosing one with brass, silver or gold feet and then matching with handles, mirrors and lighting fixtures can really tie the whole thing together.
Using encaustic tiles will finish off the look by bringing some decadence to the room.
3 – Industrial Bathrooms (1,020 boards)
Industrial bathrooms are the third most popular style with 1,020 boards.
When creating an industrial style bathroom, it is all about bringing together raw and tough materials.
Brick and steel are a great place to start, and you can use warm lighting to soften the look a little too.
Grid shower enclosures are a simple way of introducing the industrial look to your bathroom, opt for matt black fittings for a complete striking finish.
4 -Traditional Bathrooms (1,013 boards)
Similar to the Victorian style, traditional bathrooms exude a feeling of a bygone era.
Pair striking chrome fixtures with extravagant details and a deep freestanding bathtub to really enhance the feeling of decadence.
Explore brassware ranges to find a colour and a style that you love and use wood panels and dramatic black and white flooring to complete the look.
5 – Modern Bathrooms (1,007 boards)
Modern can mean different things to different people, but it usually means a more monochrome look with geometric shapes and patterns.
The perfect modern bathroom space combines neutral colour schemes with more natural finishes.
It should be neat and tidy – and, of course, modern – but not cold and clinical.
6 – Farmhouse Bathrooms (1,000 boards)
Farmhouse bathrooms are synonymous with the cottagecore bathroom trend that we have seen all over social media in 2021.
Combining period features and timeless furniture with vintage finds will help you create this cute and cosy look.

7 – Transitional Bathrooms (995 boards)
Transitional bathrooms can be defined as having “borrowed” styles and ideas from a range of design eras.
Pure white porcelain is often commonplace in this design scheme, but being brave with colours can enhance the look too.
Finish in gold brassware and pair with cast iron towel rails and statement flooring designs to really make a space pop.
8 – Rustic Bathrooms (992 boards)
A rustic bathroom space should be warm, welcoming and entirely unpretentious.
Fusing more traditional elements with chic and contemporary styling, a rustic bathroom should have a charm and elegance all of its own.
Using raw and organic elements, handmade and artisan styles feature heavily in a neo-rustic bathroom, and look amazing when used well.
9 – Mediterranean Bathrooms (793 boards)
Although not at the top of the popularity list, we have seen an increase in interest in this trend over the past year.
With people not being able to jet off on holiday as easily, Brits have been wanting to bring these calming and dreamy styles into their homes in the UK.
For a Mediterranean bathroom, use warm colours such as terracotta and carmine and include earthy tones wherever possible.
If designing your own Mediterranean bathroom, it’s important to consider how each element works with the other, especially when borrowing designs from different areas of the region.
10 – Beach-Style Bathrooms (532 boards)
For a beach style bathroom use coastal inspired colours such as white and blue and bring in natural materials such as driftwood and shells for ornamentation.
To take this style one step further, look at introducing bright pastel shades and shell tiles to enhance the look and finish with matt black brassware for added drama.
