To help those wanting to splash out on a new suite, luxury bathroom specialists Big Bathroom Shop used Pinterest to identify the most stylish bathroom trends to follow right now by taking a list of the most popular bathrooms trends and counting the number of boards for each.

Rikki Fothergill, bathroom style specialist at Big Bathroom Shop, has provided expert tips on how to recreate the most popular styles at home. She comments-

“We have definitely seen an influx in certain bathroom trends this year, with there being such a huge focus on re-decorating throughout various lockdowns. Spending so much time at home has resulted in people wanting their homes to become a sanctuary that they can truly enjoy and often neglected bathrooms have been the place to start for many.”

In first place is Victorian bathrooms with 1,024 Pinterest boards, a similar style to traditional bathrooms in 4th place. Rikki adds

“Getting the Victorian style right is about choosing statement traditional features and putting details into the décor. A free-standing roll top bath is probably the most popular feature of a Victorian style bathroom. Choosing one with brass, silver or gold feet and then matching with handles, mirrors and lighting fixtures can really tie the whole thing together. Using encaustic tiles will finish off the look by bringing some decadence to the room.”

Next up is contemporary bathrooms with 1,021 Pinterest boards. Rikki Comments

“The opposite to the Victorian style, contemporary style bathrooms will always be popular, with their ability to create such a clean and simple spacious environment. Focus on creating sleek lines when it comes to choosing showers, baths, and fixtures- opting for square and rectangular styles. Remember to stick to simple colours too, taking darker and lighter tones to accent different features within the bathroom to bring that desired modern feel.”

Industrial bathrooms are the third most popular style with 1,020 boards. Rikki says

“When creating an industrial style bathroom, it is all about bringing together raw and tough materials. Brick and steel are a great place to start, and you can use warm lighting to soften the look a little too. Grid shower enclosures are a simple way of introducing the industrial look to your bathroom, opt for matt black fittings for a complete striking finish.”

Farmhouse bathrooms are in 6th with 1,000 boards. Rikki Comments

“Farmhouse bathrooms are synonymous with the cottagecore trend that we have seen all over social media in the last year. Combining period features and timeless furniture with vintage finds will help you create this cute and cosy look.”

Mediterranean and beach style bathrooms are in 9th and 10th which Rikki says

“Although these are not at the top of the popularity list, we have seen an increase in interest in this trend over the past year for sure. With people not being able to jet off on holiday as easy, Brits have been wanting to bring these calming and dreamy styles into their homes in the UK. For a Mediterranean bathroom, use warm colours such as terracotta and carmine. For a beach style bathroom use coastal inspired colours such as white and blue and bring in natural materials such as driftwood and shells for ornamentation.”
