1. A monochrome bathroom with plenty of pattern
The geometrical 3D pattern on the floor is by far the most contemporary element of this Drummonds bathroom and is also renowned for visually widening narrow rooms, an optical illusion that works wonders here.
Marble tiles to tone in with the more traditional fittings but it still makes a powerful statement. The walls are panelled in refined carrara marble, with the vein pattern beautifully book-matched in the centre of the bath.
Suppliers for products – or similar – include: Drummonds; Minoli; Lapicida.
2. A bold monochrome bathroom with striking fittings
This luxurious bathroom was created by architectural interior designer Louise Putman of Recreate Interiors, recreateinteriors.co.uk, who knocked two former children’s bedrooms together to create a spacious en suite to the master bedroom.
The owners wanted a relaxing retreat with a design that was sympathetic to the age of the property so a longer-than-average elegant freestanding bath became the focal point of her design.
Fittings: all C.P. Hart. For similar bathroom wall lights, try Pooky.
3. A striking marble bathroom that oozes hotel style
For natural elegance and timelessness, designer Hollie Bowden chose bookmatched Arabescato marble, with an inlaid nickel trim.
When it comes to small bathroom ideas, Hollie is something of a genius. She believes in keeping the number of materials to a minimum, as it is more dramatic, maximizes the look and also feels more cohesive and fluid. Nickel was chosen for the brassware for its understated glamour.

4. Vibrant bathroom with Art Deco and Moroccan influences
A wow-bathroom with vibrant colours and striking fittings which takes inspiration from Moroccan baths. Geometric patterned tiles are used on the walls and floor where they come into direct contact with water, and the remaining walls and ceiling are finished in Venetian polished plaster, which was colour-matched to the emerald green of the tiles

5. Small cloakroom with pink walls and a bespoke tiled frieze
Make a bold statement in a small cloakroom with a bespoke tiled frieze above a dado using an upscaled image taken from an old woodblock design printed onto wall tiles. Dusky pink is a good, restful choice for the bathroom.
6. Tropical bathroom inspired by warm Hawaiian shores
Contrasting textures are a great way to introduce a sense of depth to a scheme. Here, a subtle raffia wall covering throws the smooth curves of the bath into eye-catching relief.
7. A classic bathroom with beautiful artefacts
Traditional bathroom ideas don't have to spell stuffy – you can have a lot of fun, as demonstrated here.
Opting for a single muted colour in an eggshell finish for walls, panelling and window frames will create a blank canvas, allowing furniture and curios to stand out.
8. A sophisticated bathroom with classic, Italian style
Classic and timeless, Arabescato marble with its striking veining embodies Italian elegance at its very best. Additional shades of grey on the blind and the wall ceramics bring cohesion to this simple, stylish look.
9. A classic coastal bathroom with artwork
The classic coastal theme can be extended to the bathroom where painted panelling and a plinth help define the bathing area.
10. Monochrome bathroom scheme with whimsical wallpaper
In this inviting bathroom, the block colour of the wall panelling and floor allows a wonderfully whimsical wallpaper with a strong motif to shine. Meanwhile, understated border details on the curtain and the towels help to pull the look together for a cohesive feel.
11. A classic country bathroom with roll-top bath
To give a classic roll-top bath a contemporary feel, consider simple rather than decorative feet and opt for a delicate painted border instead of an all-over colour. Fixing hooks to a foraged birch branch provides extra hanging space and add a whimsical touch.
12. Statement bathroom with a bold wallpaper
This distinctive waterproof wall covering is an innovative alternative to tiles and, with its quirky daubed design, brings a softer feel to this contemporary bathroom scheme.
13. A vibrant green bathroom with botanical-inspired wallpaper
Small spaces can be elevated with bold decorating choices, like this compelling pictorial terrarium wallpaper and moody moss-green tongue-and-groove panelling.
14. A bathroom with a rich palette of tonal browns
Accents of amber and ochre bring softness and a touch of Eastern spice to a sleek modern bathroom sanctuary. The simple motif on the blind is reminiscent of Indian woodblocks, while a mother-of-pearl inlaid Rajasthani cabinet adds character.\
15. A bathroom with traditional fixtures and decor
A cheerful indigo-patterned wallpaper above good old-fashioned tongue-and-groove panelling creates a classic bathroom. Paired with a smart bronze basin and tap unit, this space feels fit for a town or country house.
16. A contemporary bathroom with patterned Moroccan floor tiles
From seagrass and bamboo to rattan and cane, natural woven textures are ideal for bringing interiors to life. Hints of pink in the patterned Moroccan floor tiles and an exotic influence to this modern bathroom.
17. A bathroom with Greek influence and Moorish design
An adjoining en suite bathroom offers an opportunity for more adventurous decorating, as shown here with the string wall colour and chequered flooring. Echoing the palette of the bedroom scheme ensures a unified look.
18. An English country-style bathroom with turquoise bath
Muted walls ensure the turquoise bath makes a strong statement, with a fine black line offering a modern take on the traditional dado rail.
19. A traditional bathroom with gingham accents
The artful blend of a traditional soft-pink gingham curtain and modem oversized floor tiles brings a rich sense of character to this pleasing grey bathroom scheme.
20. A traditional bathroom where the bath takes center stage
If you have a spacious bathroom or are considering converting an existing bedroom into a bathroom, this is an excellent approach. The white floors, large mirror and big window all keep the bathroom feeling bright and spacious, allowing the walls to be painted a deeper, dramatic shade to frame the bath within.
