5 Tips for Timeless Bathroom Design

Marble Bathroom

The smallest room in the house is nonetheless one where we spend a significant amount of time. Whether you’re getting ready for work or soaking your cares away at the end of the day, you want your bathroom to look up-to-date without having to redo it every year. Fortunately, as elegant bathroom styles from the 1920s remain in fashion today, it’s easy to create a timeless bathroom design that will last the next decade or ten!

1. Go for Neutral Shades Over Trendy Hues

Nothing looks more dated than last decade’s colour. To avoid having a bathroom you hate in a few years’ time, stick to neutral hues and classic palettes. This doesn’t have to be boring – you can create a dramatic look with black and white stone tiles, or add a splash of colour with a red, white and navy nautical theme. But if you’re looking for timeless style, avoid this year’s ‘hot’ colour at all costs.

2. Focus on What You Love

Unless you’ve got a concrete plan to sell your house in a year or two, the person who gets the most use out of your bathroom will be you. It makes sense to choose colours and materials that you love – ideally ones you’ve loved for ages. If you always dreamed of a classic marble bathroom or a roll top bath with legs, these are looks that haven’t gone out of style. Even an unusual colour choice, if it’s one you’ve loved for years, will be easier to live with than a here today, gone tomorrow trend.

3. What Would Audrey Hepburn Want?

Classic stars from the golden age of cinema have their own timeless style – and were often seen lounging in elegant marble bathrooms that wouldn’t look out of place today. Channel your favourite screen goddess, real or fictional, to help you create a bathroom for a star.

4. Choose White Fittings

They may not have the pizazz of a trendy hue, but white bathroom fittings have been popular since porcelain baths were invented. They’re also a major investment, in terms of time and money, so it’s important to choose bathroom fittings that you’ll love to use in ten years’ time. As if that wasn’t enough, it’s often much easier and cheaper to update the surroundings – paint walls or tiles, change a cupboard and worktop – than to alter the fixtures and fittings when your bathroom does need a refresh.

5. Use Quality Materials

Poor quality materials are more likely to fade, chip or dull, and they often don’t weather well. Strong materials, well put together can last centuries. As an example, compare the durability of antique furniture or old church pews in solid wood with chipboard that’s seen a few years. One of the major advantages of a stone bathroom is that stone doesn’t alter with time and doesn’t need extra care, ensuring that you have a bathroom that’s truly timeless.
