When it comes to updating your bathroom style, there are some golden rules to ensure it stays modern and appealing well into the future. Here are our stylists’ fresh bathroom decorating ideas for any style of home.
How to style your bathroom with modern touches
2017 styling is all about simplicity and honest materials. In terms of walls and flooring, simple geometric tiles and polished concrete are very popular materials and both are timeless options. Whites and gentle greys provide a softer alternative to stark white and black, and is still neutral enough to be dressed up with colourful accessories. Sealed timber vanities and countertops provide a warm and relaxed ambience, particularly in strongly contrasting colour schemes.
There are many ways to dress up your bathroom style without spending too much. Timber shelving immediately adds a sense of opulence, and a quality wooden bath caddy provides another place to style candles and bath oils. Rolled or stacked towels in shelving or baskets are a welcoming touch for visitors and overnight guests. Finally, potted palms and leafy figs are uplifting in bathroom spaces and will help to purify and dehumidify the air in the room for a clean and fresh feel.
How to accessorise a bathroom vanity
Bathroom vanities are one area that can quickly look messy, however some storage solutions will turn it from common to chic. Arrange luxe hand creams and soaps on concrete or wooden trivets, and invest in a makeup station to keep those errant mascaras and lipsticks contained. Keep any labelled products within cupboards or drawers, or relocate them to simple glass jars for display.
For more advanced updates, look to your taps and sink themselves. The appearance of a vanity can be improved no end with a simple change to more modern tapware, or even to a vintage style that’s more in line with a classic bathroom aesthetic.
Simple bathroom ideas for small bathrooms
Even tiny changes can transform a small bathroom, so you don’t need to spend a lot to luxe up your guest ensuite. Upgrade your soap products to a premium brand like Aesop, and invest in some indulgent patterned towels in complementary colours. If you have space on the wall, add a sweet monochromatic sketch in a simple black or white frame.
