6 Tips for Designing a Timeless but Trendy Bathroom

Bathrooms. We spend a lot of our time in them. It's only natural that we would want the space to feel the best it possibly can, right? Well, then why not transform this everyday space with a trendy but timeless design that you're proud of and that will be in style for the long haul?

timeless but trendy bathroom design

The best way to think about creating a trendy yet timeless bathroom is to design the "bones" of the bathroom in a rather neutral way. Think spa-like and minimalistic. Mostly neutral colors (preferably shades of white, gray or beige), textures and patterns for major elements with the ability to switch out the easy parts over time (such as a shower curtain).

Here are are few tips to help stay on track when designing your bathroom.

Bathroom Design Tips

1. Stick with Earth Elements

Stone, marble and ceramic will provide an upscale and timeless feel. Wood is another great option for a timeless and trendy look. Be sure to pick out woods that are durable in high-moisture environments.

2. Space and Storage are King

Counter space and storage are key for a bathroom — don't get hung up on those cool looking sinks or vanities that limit space.

3. Go with Neutral Floors and Tile (you'll thank us later!)

Go with neutral tile and flooring. Although there are many "trendy" options, the trend will inevitability end and flooring can be one of the more difficult elements to change out later.

4. Spend Money on Fixtures

When it comes to major fixtures it's totally worth splurging. You really get what you pay for here and by spending a bit more you are ensuring a quality product that will last you for years.

5. Use Hardware to Pull in Trendy Metals

Trendy metal colors come and go and what's hot this year could be out by next. However, if you'd like to pull in some trending metal make use of easily changed hardware like cabinet pulls — instead of major (and expensive) fixtures.

6. Need some color?

If you just can't help yourself and feel like getting crazy with some pops of color, then do so using paint (walls & cabinets are easy to repaint), shower curtains, towels, rugs, art and accessories. All of these elements are relatively inexpensive and easy to change out without a total bathroom overhaul.
