White bathrooms are a style that will never go out of fashion. The bright and timeless appeal of this colour is a popular choice because a white bathroom won’t look dated in a few years time. White is also an excellent choice if you are preparing your house for the rental or property market because white is a colour that will provide a blank canvas for potential buyers and renters to style up themselves.
So why are white bathrooms so popular?
The universal template that a white bathroom creates is perfect for both a modern or traditionally styled bathroom. This hue lends itself perfectly to both contrasting bathroom styles and the good news is that there is a huge amount of modern and traditional white bathroom fixtures to choose from, so you’re sure to find something that matches the look and feel you’re aiming for.
The colour white is good at reflecting light which can make space feel bigger and more open. This is why white is a popular colour with small bathrooms; if you’re currently planning a cloakroom or en suite bathroom then why not think about going for a small white bathroom?
Another reason why white bathrooms are so fashionable is that you’re not tied down to the way your bathroom is styled from day one. What I mean by this is that you can forever change the look or feel of your white bathroom by changing your accessories and soft furnishings. Something as simple as changing the colour of your towels can significantly change the look of a white bathroom.
How you can incorporate the white bathroom look in your home?
If you’re thinking white walls for your new bathroom then a great choice is white metro tiles. Metro tiles are a fool-proof way of adding a stylish and sophisticated element to your bathroom design and another plus point is that they work equally well in either a modern or traditional setting. As well as white metro tiles, there is a large range of white bathroom tiles to choose from like white stone or marble effect tiles.
When it comes to white bathroom furniture you will find yourself spoilt for choice. There is more white bathroom furniture on the market in the UK than any other colour so there will be plenty of beautiful examples to choose from.
Another way of continuing the white bathroom theme would be to go for white bathroom taps. A white tap that could work well in either a large or small bathroom is the Vesta wall mounted basin tap. A wall-mounted tap frees up space on your basin or countertop and the Vesta, in particular, has an integrated shelf for keeping your bottles and potions to hand when in the bathroom.
As mentioned before, a white bathroom can be dramatically altered by simply adding colourful decoration. Soft furnishing, accessories and bathroom pictures are a brilliant way of adding a splash of colour to your bathroom. And then, if you feel your bathroom needs freshening up in the future all you have to do change the colour of your bathroom decoration!
