Style is the first thing you notice when you step into a bathroom. It sets the tone for the room and allows you to choose items centred around a common theme. Almost all bathrooms available today fall into one of three style categories, Contemporary, Classic or Traditional.

Contemporary Style

Contemporary bathrooms have smooth clean lines, design-led suites and make a bold statement with great functionality – creating a fresh and beautiful environment to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. These modern designs are centred around a simple, minimalistic look and feel. Think geometric shapes and patterns, clean lines and minimal colours. Your contemporary bathroom, large or small, can easily become a luxurious, modern sanctuary for function and relaxation.

Classic Style

Classic bathrooms offer a perfect combination of style and practicality and look great in any home regardless of age. A more classical design should feel more like a relaxing retreat combining elegant hues and luxurious touches – a design that is timeless and never goes out of style. To freshen up the look, update your favourite pieces such as a vintage mirror or pedestal table with fresh modern fixtures such as pillar-style taps or grey tiles. Classical bathrooms can work well in all sizes and shapes of bathroom and in all property types.

Traditional Style

Traditional bathrooms have enduring charm, incorporate beautiful details and are perfectly welcoming. Traditional designs often include freestanding roll-top baths, vertical wall panels, exposed beams (if lucky enough to have!), traditional prints or patterned, decorative floor tiles, which have made a big come back over recent years. Traditional bathroom designs can be successfully worked into a space with the addition of reclaimed furniture or an original feature such as a fireplace. These bathrooms look stylish in both modern and traditional period properties.
