glam bathroom

You are in a room which oozes timeless elegance, mixing the beauty of a bygone age with the luxury of modern fittings. Be soothed by the soft femininity of the colour scheme and feel indulged by the feeling of silky marble. No matter the size of the bathroom, clever design ensures there is a wonderful sense of space in your glam bathroom design.


This look is typified by statement freestanding baths that beg you to linger and luxuriate. Consider a roll-top version for a truly elegant look – and continue those graceful curves in the basin or vanity. Consider wall-hung options, from cabinetry and wall hung basins to toilets, as these will make the room feel larger. Explore the range of materials available, you want something smooth but sumptuous; marble is a great fit for this glam bathroom trend. It will work well in the shower too, fully embodying the sense of extravagance.


Perfectly complimenting the refinement of this style is beautiful brass and rose gold tapware; including elegant floorstanding faucets for your centrepiece bath. To allow rinsing while you bathe, a freestanding showerhead is the perfect solution. A longer wall arm for your rainhead in the shower heightens the vintage feel, matched with a more directed slide shower. Carry your choice of soft metallic into the heated towel rails for polished cohesion.

The most timeless colour scheme will incorporate neutral greys and clean whites, but old world glamour also lends itself to introducing pastel accents, like pale blue or soft pink. 

Tile choices are far reaching. Brass inlay marble screams magnificent decadence, but for a more subtle vintage bathroom design look, you could channel the art-deco feel with monochrome tiles laid in a geometric pattern. 

Wallpaper has well and truly reestablished itself in the world of interior design, and with washable and vinyl options available it can be a great option for adding character to a bathroom. 

A mirrored wall, whether over the bath or around the vanity, adds to the romance of this trend.


Don’t overlook the essentials that complete a bathroom – from robe hooks and toilet roll holders to soap dispensers and magnification mirrors – the small things can make a massive difference in the finish. Get creative with storage of soaps, bath salts and cotton wool, perhaps in a glass or ceramic jars, but don’t overdo it, as it could feel cluttered.

Pendant lights have now crept into bathrooms, and work well if you keep them in step with the rest of your look, whether channeling the colours in your tiles or the metal in your tapware. Wall sconces also enhance this trend – though don’t forget to provide enough illumination for practicalities.

Old world glamour might draw on history, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be forward thinking in its technological execution, with underfloor heating, backlit mirrors and LCD shower panels.


Be clear on the period you want to channel, be that 19th century English heritage or the more eclectic art deco, then find a level to suit your taste, whether elaborate or subtle.
