5 Elegant Traditional Bathroom Trends for 2022

Think traditional bathrooms are limited by the past? Reimagining the boundaries of traditional design, these 5 real homes show just how easy it is to incorporate the latest bathroom trends for 2022 into your classic bathroom style. Broadening the scope of traditional bathrooms, discover how you can make the most of your timeless bathroom to prompt relaxation through the years...

1. Rejoice in the Return of Retro

Making a comeback for 2022, we’re excited to welcome the return of old and new with retro bathrooms. A celebration of shapes and forms, retro bathrooms promise a bold, eclectic look for a scheme not to be missed. Inspired by past and present, retro bathrooms are famed for their nostalgia, with familiar styles maximising comfort in any traditional bathroom.

Perfecting the retro bathroom design, @huntsmore_design_build @snookphotograph has combined classic metro tiles with our traditional basin and close coupled toilet to capture details that harp back to Edwardian and Victorian eras. Supported by a contemporary yellow colourway, this exquisite retro bathroom seamlessly blends classic and contemporary for a space you’ll want to visit time and time again.

2. Restore Harmony with Rustic

The ideal scheme for individualism, rustic traditional bathrooms provide charm and character for a scheme that best reflects you. Naturally beautiful, this timeless bathroom trend maximises contentment with wood and other unprocessed materials to bring a soothing personality to the space.

Inspiring wellness with a combination of plants, wood and other organic materials, @wallflower_cottage’s classic bathroom is simply divine. Featuring our aluminium washstand imprinted with a delicate floral design, our Classic basin takes pride of place within this beautiful rustic traditional bathroom to capture a look that will never cease to amaze.

3. Inspire Warmth with Muted Neutrals

Soothing on the eye and calming to the mind, muted neutrals promise a cosy and comforting ambience for any timeless bathroom. Balanced and steady, muted neutrals are underpinned with hues that complement certain lighting to encourage relaxation, often taking the form of beige, cream, white, green, black and grey within traditional bathrooms.

Indulgence at its finest, @the_folks_at_number_9’s bathing space showcases just how mellowing a neutral palette can be. Offering the perfect space to reside at the end of a long day, this understated classic bathroom scheme has been tied together with our wall mounted Kensington bath filler to fulfil this elegantly modest aesthetic.

4. Reside in the Heart of Nature

In a time where wellness refuses to be compromised, we’ve witnessed an extraordinary shift in favour of nature over recent years. Known for its contribution to mental and physical wellbeing, our homes are looking to go one step further with an array of nature-inspired décor to help bring the outside in.

A space where relaxation is most important, traditional bathrooms are being designed around nature to inspire wellness with botanical wallpapers, glossy green tiling, potted plants and earthy colour palettes - just like this impressive cloakroom by @theoldredhouse. Finished with our traditional basin with towel rail and our low level toilet, this space-saving scheme is set to impress in even the smallest of classic bathrooms.

5. Mellow with Indulgent Marble

An illuminating design to give the appearance of a much larger room, marble enhances smaller traditional bathrooms just as much as master spaces. Complementing our desire to bring the outside in, this naturally occurring stone promises an exclusive set of veins for a contemporary or classic bathroom scheme unlike any other.

Simple and sophisticated, white marble remains one of the most popular choices for the bathroom, seen in this extravagant retreat by @renovating_paddock_hill. Providing a captivating backdrop for our Kensington taps and Trent shower, marble accentuates classic design with ease for an unmissable statement. For a subtle hint of marble in your timeless bathroom, go understated with our freestanding vanity unit and carrara white worktop.
