5 modern classic bathroom ideas for a functional, timeless bathroom design that never goes out of style.
My head is SWIRLING with all of the bathroom remodel ideas lately now that water mitigation is finished and drywall is starting to get repaired around here.
Pretty soon, contractors will be finishing demo in our primary bathroom and then it’s full steam ahead for the actual remodel! It’s been a long road since the water damage accident, and we’re still not as far along as I’d hoped, but we’re excited for everything these next few weeks will bring.
One main goal I’ve had for our new bathroom design is to make it timeless. I want this bathroom renovation to last us decades! So that means classic tile, neutral colors, pieces that feel something like out of the 1920s, 1960s, and today.
These are the modern classic bathroom inspirations that keep me coming back.
Modern Classic Bathroom Ideas
1. Scalloped Marble Backsplash Ledge
I love the look of a scalloped marble backsplash but the functionality of a sink ledge. This one combining both is perfect and so timeless!
2. Shadow Box Molding
Even though we don’t have room for that gorgeous tub, I think some picture frame molding on the wall (just like the ones we did in Regan’s room and our dining room) will add a classic detail and be more cost-effective than wall tile.
3. Classic Wood Vanity
I keep envisioning a medium toned wood vanity that looks like a piece of furniture. The feet will help the small space feel more open.
4. Enclosed Shower Room
This feels like a good solution for a small shower without skimping on style. And according to many of you from the “Would You Rather?” Bathroom Design discussion
, it’s more warm and cozy too. That brass doorknob detail on the shower door sold me!
5. Black Linen Cabinet with Wood Interior
We desperately need storage in this small bathroom, and this linen cabinet seems like a great solution that will never go out of style.
What do you think of when you hear the phrase “Timeless Bathroom”? For some reason, it makes me think if Great-Gatsby-meets-James-Bond were to become a bathroom design, that’s what I’d want.
