Timeless en-suite bathroom solutions

Timeless en-suite bathroom solutions

Without realising our bathrooms are often one of the most used rooms of the house. Whether you’re getting ready for the day ahead, relaxing after a long day or getting the kids ready for bed, our bathrooms are used a lot.

When decorating an essential part of the house, like a bathroom, it’s important to create somewhere practical and also timeless. Bathrooms can get expensive when you are redecorating and redesigning, so it is important to make en-suite bathroom choices that will also work well in the future.

But as everyone has their own version of what looks good, creating a timeless bathroom can be subjective. The best way to do it is to choose your influences carefully and keep it simple.

Vanity units

Typically, an en-suite bathroom is smaller than your main family bathroom, that means selecting furniture that as streamlined and multi-functional as possible. A vanity unit is an ideal solution as it provides essential storage space in nifty designs without require additional storage solutions.

At Bathrooms Direct we have a wide range of vanity units that come in a wide range of shapes and designs to fit into almost any en-suite bathroom. Some of our most popular vanity units include the Bauhaus svelte corner unit with mineral marble basin and Geberit Acanto small projection vanity unit.

A wall hung vanity unit also helps to create a sense of space as you can see under the unit, extending the visible floor space.

Classic white

White is a timeless colour when it comes to choosing bathroom suites. Although current trends include greys and pastel colours, a white bathroom dates a lot slower.

Our Kaldewei Puro Duo Luxury Steel Bath has a sleek and everlasting shape that will be popular for years to come. Picking a bathroom suite that doesn’t have too many trend elements helps you to keep your bathroom stylish for years to come.

If you want to add a splash of colour or keep up with trends, you can incorporate this into your bathroom through accessories and towel choices. The little ad on are a lot easier and more affordable to change than an entire bathroom suite.


In a timeless en-suite bathroom you need to create a well-lit room. Not only does it help to create a sense of space, but it also provides the perfect light for shaving, plucking eyebrows etc. Wall sconces positioned at eye level on either side of a mirror are perfect for applying makeup. Consider overhead lights or even a cluster of three pendants, hung at different heights, in the corner.

Also, consider using a dimmer or use two circuits to dim the room for relaxing baths.
