For a look that never goes out of style, choose a classic design for your bathroom. Traditional styles are elegant and timeless, plus they can work in small or large bathrooms of any shape. Think classic style is outdated? Opting for conventional design doesn’t have to mean looking to the past. Update your favourite pieces, such as a vintage mirror or pedestal table, with fresh and modern fixtures such a pillar-style taps or grey tiled walls.
Classic bathrooms may seem like a difficult design task to take on; however, these spaces may introduce a clever design challenge to add to your plate. Creating a functional and storage-friendly bathroom may be just what your home needs. Every design element in a classic bathroom should have a purpose and be functional in some way or another to create a space-saving sanctuary.

Classic bathroom design doesn’t necessarily need a huge sweeping room to be successful. Cleverly chosen fixtures, well-placed mirrors and the right individual pieces will make the most of a small bathroom. Choose one statement piece, such as a striking mirror or free-standing bath and make this the focal point of your classic bathroom.
Keeping to one colour scheme, such as all white, will give centre-stage to your chosen piece and feel less over-powering – which is great for a smaller space. If you aren’t looking to completely refit your bathroom, there are small updates you can make that will give your current design a new lease of life.
Simply adding some patterned wallpaper, or pretty soft furnishings, to your bathroom will completely overhaul the look and feel. Or, do something special with a larger space and consider adding strong architectural features, such as a fireplace. This bold centre piece will really add something special to your classic bathroom.
An all-white bathroom is often considered a ‘safe bet’ when renovating, but there are other colour schemes that are just as reliable. Similar to exterior paint colours, grey is gaining in popularity for tile choice, while neutrals, timber accents and blue tones remain popular.
