Plan Your Bathroom Design Ideas with RoomSketcher

From botanical-inspired designs to designs featuring motifs, there’s a wide array of wallpapers in the market. Our advice is to use subtly patterned wallpaper with wood paneling to create a luxurious country feel. When designing traditional bathrooms, don’t overlook the importance of the decorative yet functional style. Embrace these distinctive materials and treatments to turn your traditional bathroom into a magical spa. What makes traditional style bathrooms great is that they are a charming idea even if you don’t live in a vintage home.


In this space designed by D Burns Interiors, the free-standing sink basin steals the show. With blue, white and sand accents, there’s no doubt that this bathroom by Pure Salt Interiors was inspired by the beach. In order to keep it chic , focus on adding subtle beach elements with color, texture, and a few accessories. “We gutted the old one and did a completely different layout,” the team at Arbor & Co. explain.

A sophisticated bathroom with optimised storage

Desiree Burns Interiors paired a vintage-style pedestal sink with a modern mirror with a wavy frame and hung wallpaper illustrated with floral and lemon branches for a timeless feel. Decorate a vintage-style bathroom with marble-effect wallpaper, an antique mirror, brass accents, and retro fixtures, like this space from Brexton Cole Interiors. A freestanding sink with a built-in towel rack matches the style of the home. Cabin bathrooms are often stand-alone outhouses separate from your main living space. Wood cabins are a popular choice, but you can also go for a less traditional interior. Rustic stone textured tiles work well along with dark slate flooring.

After purchasing her first historic home, built in 1915, and turning it into the home of her dreams, a passion for interior design was ignited. After a 15-year career in the luxury event space, she pivoted her company to focus on interior design and in 2019 launched Plaster & Patina. Today she specialises in respectfully breathing new life into old homes and in transforming newly-built properties into homes with soul.

Create curves with shapely tiles

It’s important to choose lighting that matches your bathroom style. Yellow hues create a soft warm and relaxing feel, perfect for long luxurious soaks. While bright white bulbs provide excellent visibility so offer a more practical solution. Try adding darker-colored accessories to create a warm and inviting feel. If you’re unsure, start with a monochrome design and add hints of color using bathroom accessories.
