Update your bathroom with timeless appeal

Posted on the 24/10/2021 by Karndean Designflooring

Whether you want your bathroom to be revitalising to get you up and going in the morning or relaxing to help you unwind at the end of the day, choosing the right layout and materials is key to achieving a space that works for you and your family.

Refurbishing a bathroom can be a costly investment and you’ll live with the results for many years so it’s important to carefully consider what you need from this space and the look you hope to achieve. Here are our top tips to get the latest look.

1.     The latest bathrooms are featuring pared back simplicity to make the most of a small space. Clean lines will make it easier to keep your bathroom uncluttered and hygienically clean. Fitting dual sinks with built in storage will help create a practical and serene space.

2.     Do you love to soak in the bath at the end of the day or does your family prefer the convenience of a walk-in shower for stress free mornings? If you have space you could include both or alternatively consider installing a free-standing tub in the bedroom for a luxurious boutique hotel feel.

3.     Marble is the must have material for 2021. Designers are using marble sheets and tiles on walls, surfaces and flooring where its dramatic veining gives a luxurious and sophisticated finish.

4.     In the world of bathrooms, white is no longer the only colour choice! It’s interesting to see that coloured suites are back, with popular choices including soft grey, taupe and baby pink. Or if you prefer a classic white suite, you can get the same comforting effect by choosing a gentle colour scheme in grey, pink or blue on walls and tiles.

5.     If you prefer an explosion of colour, why not try an unexpected combination that simply makes you smile. Pair a bold floral or jungle print wallpaper with a rich wood design floor or let your floor stand out with a statement geometric design.

Instagram influencer Laura Crombie, who shared her kitchen renovation story as our guest blogger in February, has recently updated her bathroom with a sleek grey minimalist style. A practical choice for a busy family home, she has opted for a walk-in shower and dual sinks with plenty of storage. Wall to wall marble tiles provide plenty of textural interest without dominating while Natural Prime Oak from our Van Gogh multi-format range introduces the warm tones of wood flooring, preventing the overall effect feeling cold and clinical.

When it comes to choosing flooring for your bathroom, you need a surface that’s waterproof and can shrug off spills and splashes, is hygienic, easy to keep clean and comfortable underfoot. It’s reassuring to know that all our designs are suitable for bathrooms* so you can let your imagination run free and design the room of your dreams without having to compromise.

We love how Laura has given her dated bathroom a fresh new lease of life. We’ll be featuring her next project very soon – don’t tell anyone but it’s her little girl’s playroom and it’s going to be super cute! Follow her on Instagram @lauraccrombie to see more of her beautiful new bathroom.
