When it comes to the bathroom, renovating this space often falls to the bottom of the list and, as a result, it’s likely that you’ve fallen out of love with it. Whether you bought your home as a new-build and the bathroom lacks character and personality or the home you’ve moved into doesn’t fit your style, investing time and money in this room is a great way to put your stamp on its interior design and a classic bathroom is a fantastic way of achieving enduring character and charm.
Creating a timeless bathroom is easily achievable – think neutral colour palettes, glossy tiles and a relaxing atmosphere. The key is to make the space feel as tranquil as possible. This opens up endless possibilities in terms of bath, basin, WC, shower, brassware and furniture. A painted timber vanity unit is a perfect statement piece and its concealed storage is ideal for personal products as well as towels and toiletries. Pedestal basins can usually be paired with a matching WC while pillar taps or a monobloc mixer in one of the latest finishes can give sanitaryware an instant update.
In any classic bathroom, take time to consider the colour palette. Much like in a neutral scheme, creams and cashmeres work well and never go out of style. Not only is this important for tiling and flooring options, but also in making a towel and accessory selection. Sumptuous Egyptian cotton towels in a bright white colourway can help to make the bathroom feel more extravagant, whether hanging over a heated towel rail or stored within bathroom furniture or on open shelving. Similarly, the addition of flowers or plants can really help bring the space to life.
