8 Dreamy Bathroom Ideas For Every Style

Whether you're a morning energiser seeking a refreshing start to your day or an evening unwinder craving a peaceful retreat, your bathroom holds the key to unlocking your personal oasis. 

The key word here is personal — from big families to solo dwellers, everyone uses their bathroom differently. With this in mind, it can be tricky to find a bathroom style that hits both your functionality and aesthetic must-haves. But don’t worry — we’ve gathered the best bathroom ideas to suit a whole range of different style (and lifestyle) preferences.

1. Built in shower shelves

Real talk — if you have a whole bunch of people with different skin, hair and body needs, you’re going to need a roomy shower. Building in a ledge in your shower space acts as a gorgeous yet convenient way to accommodate a range of products, keeping them within easy-access range.

A palette of neutral blue-grey tiles with gunmetal fixtures is the perfect balance of stylish and serene, while the terrazzo-style  shelf finish brings a pop of interest to the space. Can’t afford a whole shower redesign but still need that extra space for products? Install a high-quality shower shelf instead.

2. Keep it calming

If you see your bathroom as the ultimate safe space or retreat, it makes sense to decorate with a soothing colour palette in mind. 

Calming tones like the sage green above give off an instant signal that it’s time to relax and unwind — ideal if you’re the sort of person who loves a long soak in the tub or an ‘everything’ shower. The rounded edges of the mirror and basin here also add another layer of softness and serenity.

3. Matching accents

You know how the right accessories can really tie an outfit together? The same goes for your bathroom. Investing in quality fixtures throughout your space is a must from a practical standpoint, but opting to keep everything in the same hue creates a cohesive, crisp and striking look. 

As you can see here, everything from the shower head to the door lock matches — this attention to detail instantly elevates the look.

4. Embrace the vanity

For self-care enthusiasts, a large vanity is essential. As you can see in the bathroom above, this wall-mounted vanity is an ideal way to provide plenty of counter space and storage without the space looking cluttered. 

From a design perspective, this bathroom highlights gentle curves that give off an instant chilled-out vibe — everything from the mermaid tiles to the mirror and countertop feels smooth and relaxed. 

5. Tub time

Want to incorporate a little bit of luxury into your bathroom design? Make room for a bathtub. A freestanding style like the one seen here makes the space feel more grand — especially if you source one with character accents. 

Not only do tubs enhance the visual appeal of a bathroom, but they also provide a great place to soak away your worries (or give all the kids a simultaneous scrub). 

6. Crisp & clean

Say it with us — white bathrooms don’t have to be boring! Whites and creams are a classic choice for bathrooms — they give a crisp and clean aesthetic, they’re timeless, versatile and allow for design flexibility down the road. 

An all or mostly-white bathroom can be jazzed up with the right elements — think gorgeous tapware, interesting textures in tiles, pops of plants and greenery or even just your towels

7. Be bold

It’s your bathroom — and you can make a statement if you want to! In the bathroom shown above, classic checkerboard tiles, fun textures and  bold black fixtures  combine to create a look that’s truly original but still chic. 

By keeping with the same tonal family (in this case, browns and neutrals), you can experiment with different design elements to craft an aesthetic that’s out of the box without feeling too over the top. Our tip? Pick a favourite tone/colour and let it guide your tiling, fixture and cabinetry choices. 

8. Classic neutrals

As far as design longevity goes, you really can’t pass up a classic neutral palette. Opting for  beige , sandy, creamy and blush tones creates the perfect backdrop for bathrooms of all shapes and sizes — not to mention you’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to finding tiles, cabinetry, fixtures and accessories that work well together.

 As seen here, stone, marble and pale wood combined with neutral tiles provide enough contrast to be interesting, but not so much that anything clashes.
