How to create a sophisticated and timeless bathroom

Are you tired of your ordinary bathroom? Why not give it a sophisticated makeover and add a touch of classic style to this usually utilitarian room. A timelessly designed room can still be cosy and give comfort on a cold winter's night, or be a light and airy space to relax in come summer.

There are certain styles that have a reputation for being sophisticated and elegant. Choose wisely and you will be able to create a completely timeless bathroom that will still look fresh and modern for years to come.

Think about the shape and size of your bathroom: Consider different storage options to keep your bathroom clutter-free, giving a feeling of space - even in a small room. Laundry bins are a must, as are cupboards for towels and accessories. Well-placed chairs are also an option for stacking towels and introducing a warm and cosy feeling to your bathroom. Choose vintage chairs in painted wood, or splash-proof fabric for durable furniture that will always look fresh.

Create focal points in your new bathroom to make striking silhouettes that add a touch of sophistication all on their own. Sculpted tables, crystal lampshades and elegant displays of glass bottles will all enrich your bathroom. A stand-alone vanity table with individual touches will really style up this classic bathroom design.

Lastly, don't forget the small details. Sleek accessories, luxurious fabrics and modern fittings all add up to a refined and glamorous bathroom.
