Modern bathroom with metro tiles and dark grout and wood-effect floor tiles

If you want your bathroom to look traditional but on-trend, you can’t go wrong with metro tiles and dark grouting. To save money or achieve a softer look, tile the wall up to the halfway point and paint the top half in a soft grey. Add wood-effect floor tiles and a wooden toilet seat to break up the grey and white.

Cloakroom with Penguin Library wallpaper and blue mosaic splashback

A cloakroom is the ideal spot for bold decor. It’s a small space so you can afford to pick bold wallpaper and strong hues that you’d hesitate to use elsewhere. This Penguin Library wallpaper works wonderfully, and the blue mosaic tiles above the sink add an extra splash of colour.

Feeling restricted by the size of your bathroom? Then take a look at this photo for all the inspiration you need. Narrow it may be, but that doesn’t mean that the owners have gone for standard fittings. A claw-foot bath really does give this space the wow factor.

Neutral bathroom with pretty finishing touches

Neutral bathroom with pretty finishing touches

Neutrals are a popular colour for bathrooms – they’re versatile and serene, so we can definitely see why. Sometimes you do just need to add a little something to them, though. That’s where pretty soaps, lotions and potions, flowers, and even jazzy-looking towels come in. Have fun with your neutral space is what we say.

Traditional cloakroom with damask wallpaper

Traditional cloakroom with damask wallpaper

Get the perfect finish with traditional damask prints, period-style fittings and beautifully detailed antique-inspired mirrors. A downstairs cloakroom is a great place to experiment with pattern, as the space is generally quite small, so it won’t look over the top.

Blue bathroom with Gothic window

Blue bathroom with Gothic window

Let period features stand out with careful decorating. Blue walls lend a traditional feel to the space and frame the huge proportions of the Gothic window – not to mention the view. White fittings keep the look clean, but are in a traditional style that ties in with the period of the property.

White bathroom with freestanding tub and bunting

Add hotel chic to your bathroom with a traditional freestanding tub. A beautiful bath is all you need to make your space feel special – position it beneath a window so you can enjoy a view while you soak away the day. Bunting and a brightly painted vintage shelving unit in water-inspired aqua shades are a very appropriate choice of colour.

Traditional bathroom with grey wall panelling

Give traditional wall panels a modern look by painting them in a dark grey colour. Not only does the paint act as a highlighter to beautiful period detailing, it also lets the bath make the biggest impact possible. Nearly black floor tiles add to the drama. Claw feet raise the bath, thereby increasing the visible floor area and enhancing the sense of space.

Sparkling white traditional bathroom

Sparkling white traditional bathroom

Create a gleaming scheme in a traditional bathroom with white walls and white fitttings, combined with a sheeny silver mirror and furniture. A his and hers basin is  a stylish yet practical choice, allowing for speedy teeth cleaning after a long and tiring day. The mirror hits exactly the right note here. Its shimmering edging frames it perfectly and it’s just the right side of traditional without looking flamboyant.

Traditional bathroom with a contemporary edge

Traditional bathroom with a modern edge

Mix modern and contemporary bathroom decorating styles to create a look that is individual to you. In this bathroom, the fittings are all traditional in their appearance, though the gold finish on the taps and shower head provide a departure from the expected. Metro tiles bring the room up to date, too, along with the roughly varnished floorboards and the exposed bath base.

Soothing stone-clad bathroom with chrome accents

Create a relaxing bathroom space with warm putty tones on the walls and spa-like stone finishes. Here, stone tiles have been used to clad the bath, floor and a section of the walls, blending tonally with the soft earthy-pink paint for a traditional look. Polished chrome accents – such as this radiator/ towel rack – bring a light finish to the rest of the scheme.
