How To Choose Your Bathroom Style
When planning a bathroom renovation, there are so many things to consider.
Do you want a shower or a bath, or both? What colour scheme are you going to choose? What size and colour tiles will work in your space? How much room have you got to work with?
But the first question you need to ask yourself is: ‘What is style do I want to go for?’.
Here are some key questions to ask that will help you when it comes to how to choose your bathroom style.
What’s Your Current Home Style?
Your bathroom should match your overall home style.
It would be odd to create an ultra-modern bathroom in a country home with vintage styling.
However, it’s not a room you want to be renovating just because your décor has changed, so think about whether you’ll be updating the rest of your home to a different style in the near future too.
If you’re going to be renovating and redecorating your home soon, tie in your new bathroom style with your plans for the rest of the home.
Who’ll Be Using The Bathroom?
Another big consideration is who will be using the bathroom, now and in the foreseeable future.
Will it be used just for you and your partner?
Does it need to be a family bathroom that the whole house can use?
Do you have any elderly people in your home and therefore have to consider their needs as they age as well?
Who uses the bathroom can very much affect the style of bathroom you choose.
How Much Space Do You Have?
We’d all love a bathroom that easily accommodates everything we want in it, but sometimes we’re restricted by the space available.
Look at how much space you have available, and work out what you can physically fit in the bathroom. You might want a shower and a separate bath, but it might not be possible to do.
A good bathroom renovation specialist will do their best to build in clever features and storage to help you pack as much into your bathroom as possible without making it feel overcrowded.
What’s Your Bathroom Renovation Budget?
As much as you’d like to splash the cash and only have the best of the best for your bathroom renovation, it’s good to have a budget in mind that works for you.

What Can’t You Live Without?
Think about the elements you can’t live without while planning your bathroom renovation.
Are twin sinks non-negotiable? Could you live without a bath if it meant more room for a larger shower?
Make a list of your must haves and nice to haves before you start getting bathroom renovation quotes.
What Bathroom Style To Choose
A classic bathroom style is ideal if you don’t want to update your bathroom again for a while. Use one or two colours, with no bold patterns that could date easily.
Go for formal yet elegant fixtures and fittings, nothing overly dramatic or bold.
Modern bathrooms use sleek materials like glass, stone, and stainless steel.
Avoid clutter, keep accessories to a minimum and keep lines clean.
Modern bathrooms often use bold patterns or colours – see what’s on trend in bathrooms and take your inspiration from that.
Shabby Chic Bathroom
Shabby chic is still a popular bathroom style. You can mix and match different elements and then use a single colour to link all your elements together.
It exudes a comfy lived-in look, so shop around at second-hand stores and markets for interesting pieces to add to your bathroom.
Country style bathrooms are ideal for rural properties. Using light wood for some of the key pieces in your bathroom like vanities and towel rails, you can really bring your country look to life.
If using fabrics, go for striped, floral or plaid patterns.
Bring some personal touches to the bathroom with vintage accessories or furniture like high-backed chairs and freestanding tables for your sinks.
