6 Popular Bathroom Styles
The bathroom can be just as stylish as any other room in your home, and there is a myriad of styles to choose from for a bathroom remodel to give you the look you want. Maybe you are looking for a rustic-cottagey feel, or perhaps a tranquil spa-like atmosphere. If you are planning to redo your existing bathroom or add a brand new bathroom to your home choosing your desired style is the first step. That way a qualified general contractor near you can make sure the right layout is created, and the right fixtures and flooring are used. Below we’ve listed some popular bathroom styles for inspiration.
This style of bathroom is designed with sleek and minimal in mind. It incorporates new technologies like touchless faucets, waterfall showers, or heated floors, and materials like luxury vinyl floor tiles or bamboo cabinetry. It emphasizes clean lines and not a ton of extras. If you are interested in a contemporary-style bathroom remodel you would be looking for things like a shower enclosure instead of bathtub, hidden storage solutions, sleek vanities and a crisp white and black colour palette, or something in elegant neutrals.
This style of bathroom, probably the most popular of all, is a blend between contemporary or modern, and traditional and classic. It uses some of the sleek elements of the contemporary style but blends them with the warm and rich touches of the traditional, creating a balance between the two. These bathrooms generally have a separate bathtub and shower enclosure, a shaker-style vanity, and light stone countertops or flooring using materials such as marble or quartz.
These bathrooms, as the name suggests, are classic, timeless. They are open to more decorative elements and aren’t necessarily interested in sleek or modern-feeling design.

The colour palette’s for traditional bathrooms are very open, anything from airy and light, to rich historical colours, and everything in between.
This style of bathroom incorporates a generous amount of natural woods and other materials throughout. It focuses on crisp clean lines while still trying to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere. A strong use of geometric shapes throughout means it is likely to have a square glass shower enclosure, shaker-style vanities, and cabinets, even rectangular lighting fixtures are common in a craftsman style bathroom.
This style of bathroom also likes to use natural woods and stones in its design but is not interested in clean lines necessarily. It is meant to give a more natural one-with-nature atmosphere, using bold vibrant colors, organic-feeling elements like rounded raised-bowl sinks, or sea glass tiling. Meant to inspire and make one feel as though they are staring out over the beautiful Mediterranean sea.
Relaxation is the goal of a spa-inspired bathroom. Incorporating soaker bathtubs and waterfall showerheads, are standard elements in this design. Along with vessel sinks, sleek lighting that has the ability to be dimmed as well as the use of natural light where possible. Natural stone countertops or flooring are also common with this style of bathroom, and the colour palette relies heavily on whites and various light natural neutral colours.
