Bathroom trends come and go. If you follow the latest trend and what’s new, you’ll find yourself having to update your decor constantly to keep up. For some of us, we don’t have time to think about the latest. And if you think keeping up on trend is so last year, read on to find the right elements that make your bathroom design stand the test of time, even when the rest of them have gone!
Natural Elements Never Goes out of Style
“Nature is out of fashion” is something rarely ever said. Whether it’s incorporating some natural tones to your decor, having wooden textures on your vanity, or collecting house plants, we are so interwoven with the natural world that playing up the elements that connect us to it will always remain a time tested design.
Subway tiles have been around for as long as the underground subway existed. Taking its roots from the first New York subway in 1904, this architectural invention took the design world by storm because it made underground travel look shiny, brand new, and easy to clean. Ever since its debut, kitchens and bathrooms of the 20th century adopted the subway tile for its sanitary aesthetic. And although it had a period of decline in the 70s and 80s due to its association with grimy underground surfaces, subway tiles reemerged in the 21st century and remains as a go-to choice for many bathrooms - a century after its first inception.
White - A Timeless Neutral Colour
If there is one colour that stands against the test of time - whites, cream, and off-whites are the safest bet. While it’s not the most exciting palette on the colour spectrum, neutral flavours of white and white-adjacent colours can make a room feel bright, airy, and dreamy! Best of all, you don’t need to worry about repainting your walls every few years.
Acquiring too much decor makes a space feel overstylized and overwhelming. Give your space breathing room. Instead of acquiring many pieces to make a style, invest in quality materials that will last for decades to come.
True & Classic Marble
In terms of timelessness, the use of marble has spanned across many lifetimes. From Renaissance architecture to the baths of ancient Rome and Greece, marble captures what it really means to be timeless. If there is one material that connects the past, present, and future: marble was, is, and will always be relied on.
