White bathroom ideas

A white bathroom can make your home feel classically elegant, light-reflective and timeless. The colour of choice for those looking to create a fresh atmosphere in their bathrooms as its classic look will never go out fashion. 

Can an all-white design work in the bathroom?

An all-white bathroom can definitely work for some people, it can make rooms look spacious, light and bright. White is associated with purity and spirituality so if you’re looking to create a place of relaxation and meditation then white should be in your list of options. However, there are those for whom a pure white bathroom would never be an option. They would find it clinical and sterile and remind them too much of a hospital room.

How can I avoid my white bathroom being clinical?

Use textures and materials in your white bathroom to avoid that clinical look. Quality furniture and sanitaryware will also make a difference to the overall finish. Add wood to furniture, floors, mirrors to soften the styling and add warmth. Décor elements can be added to add character and individuality too.


What colours go with a white bathroom?

Green is the hue of 2022, biophilia in the bathroom is still very popular and a trend that continues to grow. A living wall of greenery is a great way to bring your space to life and for the ultimate in laid-back, cool chic. Bathrooms can also be the most ideal place for your plants to thrive.

However, the great thing about a white bathroom is that virtually any color can be added, blue and white works perfectly – think of Wedgewood China – opt for a breezy seaside aesthetic.


How do you soften a white bathroom?

Layer materials, shapes and colours to define your space and style and soften your look. Use brushed brass taps and shower fittings against a soft pink accessory plan, brushed brass mirror with fluffy pink towels.

Ensure you have a lighting plan, strategically placed lighting will ensure your bathroom space is warm and inviting and a place you want to spend time and relax in.


What are the advantages of a white bathroom?

As we mentioned above, white visually makes any space look larger which is a definite advantage if you have only a small space to work with.  White also ‘smooths’ the room, any niches and odd corners or ceiling spaces will appear less obvious in a white room.  White is also a great colour if you are a person who gets bored with a room quickly. You can easily change the whole look by simply replacing towels and accessories.


Shades of white

When painting walls or choosing furniture for your white bathroom then consider one of the off-white shades. One with a slight pink tone will make the room feel warmer. Add brass brassware to add further warmth and character.

You can add interest to a white bathroom design by creating a strong focal point. Multipanel Linda Barker Collection in Calacatta Marble is a great alternative to tiling and can be used a feature wall to a shower area or to the wall behind a freestanding bath. The end result will be simply stunning, elegant and timeless. The 100% waterproof panels are also easy to install, easy to clean and are available in different sizes. You can even install onto old tiles.

Can you recommend a white vanity unit?

When it comes to vanity units there is a plethora of choice. Are you planning a contemporary or a traditional bathroom? How much space do you have in your layout? Storage is always important so we’d advise providing as much as you can. Burlington Riviera Collection includes a great vanity unit in Matt White, the unit is 650mm and includes a basin. The unit takes inspiration from the 1920’s art deco designs and has a double door storage space as well as an integrated towel shelf.  If it’s a more modern look that you are aiming for then Villeroy and Boch have a superb selection of white vanity units in all sizes. We love the Villeroy and Boch Subway 2.0 XL. At 1300mm wide this is a great option for a busy family home where storage space is so important.

Freestanding bathtub

Use a freestanding tub as your white bathroom centrepiece. A white tub placed strategically will steal the limelight and add charm and elegance to your white bathroom space.  Take a look at the Victoria + Albert Richmond Freestanding Bath, one of our top sellers. This stunning double ended roll top bath has a timeless art-deco feel which makes it perfect for a modern or more traditional room. Made from Quarrycast, it is tough and more durable than ceramic.

Add accent colour to your white bathroom

If your overall look is for a white bathroom you don’t need to use lots of additional colour. But it’s a good idea to add colour accents to reduce the sterility of the style. Whether this is coloured towels, bath mat and wall décor or maybe a coloured blind a simple splash of colour will give you the desired effect.


A white, spa-like bathroom

You can easily turn your white bathroom into a spa like sanctuary. A place where you can relax and de-stress after a hard day. Add living plants, shells, and wicker baskets. Stack your towels and have them on view and don’t forget those important candles! A candle will soften the tone and help create a spa-like ambience.
