An essential element within any bathroom, your choice of suite is fundamental to your overall design. We take a look at what’s hot in 2023 with 8 fresh bathroom suite ideas.
From the smallest cloakroom to the grandest of master bathrooms, your choice of bathroom suite will ultimately dictate the entire look and feel of your space. Typically containing all the essential elements you’d expect in a bathroom, like a toilet, basin, bath or shower enclosure, bathroom suites come in all shapes, sizes, styles and even colours, with an almost limitless number of combinations.
No matter the size of your space or the size of your budget, at Victoria Plum we want to inspire you to create the bathroom of your dreams. We’ve come up with 8 fresh bathroom suite ideas for 2023 and beyond, each one demonstrating a different look and meeting a diverse range of needs.
So, without further ado, let’s take a look at the first of these fresh bathroom suite ideas…
1. Family favourite
Creating a shared bathroom space that the whole family can enjoy is a tricky old business. Striking a balance between style and functionality, especially where younger children are involved, certainly doesn’t come easy.
Most bathroom suite ideas you’ll come across online and in home interest magazines are typically far from the busy, cluttered and often chaotic spaces that grace the average family abode. And there’s good reason for this… I mean, would you really gain inspiration from something that looks just like the room you’re trying to update?
If you’re seeking something that the whole family can enjoy and reduces the amount of cleaning you’ll need to do, we present to you the Eden complete shower bath suite…
What makes this bathroom suite so perfect for families, I hear you ask. Well, aside from the fresh modern style and favourable price tag, it comes complete with all the main fixtures and fittings you’ll need. This includes:
- Multi-functional shower bath with glass screen and panels (available in right and left handed options)—ideal where some prefer a bath to a shower and visa versa Thermostatic dual outlet shower—keeps water temperature consistent…safe for little ones
- Back to wall toilet with concealed cistern—neater, more modern, easier to clean around
- Vanity unit with basin—handy storage space
- Basin mixer and bath mixer taps—matching for a coordinated look
- Plus, all your plumbing accessories, like wastes and as bottle trap
Proof, if proof were needed, that a busy family bathroom can be both clean and stylish. All you’ll need to do is accessorise with your choice of heating plus wall and floor coverings.
2. You can’t beat the classics
As renowned property expert Sarah Beeny said in her recent interview with us, it’s always safe to stick with the classics when it comes to a bathroom. Traditional style is tried, trusted and timeless, which is why many of us opt for this look all around our homes.
If this is the type of design you’re after, you’ll find plenty of bathroom suite ideas that include all the elements you’d expect from a traditional décor, including classic roll top baths, washstands, cross handle taps and vintage-inspired toilets. With all this in mind, we present to you the Dulwich roll top bath suite…
This classic bathroom suite comes complete with:
- Classic roll top bath with chrome claw feet—beautiful and luxurious
- Full pedestal basin—made from high quality glazed ceramic, great for concealing pipework
- Close coupled toilet with grey wooden seat—Traditional pull flush fits seamlessly with the overall design
With the basic elements in place, you’re free to accessorise with your favourite taps and accessories. We love the juxtaposition between old and new in the room above, with popular wall panelling, gorgeous Victorian style patterned floor tiles and on-trend grey bathroom walls. Plus, the Art Deco-inspired mirror is just the perfect finishing touch, wouldn’t you agree?
3. Wow your house guests
When it comes to searching out bathroom suite ideas, it’s not just all about grand designs, master bathrooms or even ensuites. Those small but essential downstairs cloakrooms need a little love and attention too, you know.
Indeed, a stylish cloakroom suite can leave a lasting impression on house guests, who are likely to use this space exclusively, rather than traipse upstairs to your main bathroom. It’s especially important to spruce up your cloakroom at Christmas and other times of the year, when those unexpected visitors are more likely to come a-knocking.
And, to prove that big things come in small packages, we present to you the Derwent square complete cloakroom suite…
In a room where every inch is absolutely vital, the space-saving design of this matching suite from the Derwent collection is more than handy. The contemporary square shape of the suite fits the space well, whilst the compact close coupled toilet is just 600mm from front to back. Carrying on the geometric design, we picked out hexagonal wall tiles and an on-trend green colour scheme—a much-loved bathroom shade which is set to be even more popular this coming year.
Complete with a square mixer tap which complements the overall look to perfection, why not add a towel rack? It’ll make excellent use of wall space.
4. Warming wood
Organic interiors are fast becoming a big bathroom trend and if you search through the all the bathroom suite ideas containing natural materials, you’ll soon see why. Stone, wood and even houseplants bring a more relaxing and tactile feel to your interiors which, in a bathroom, is absolutely essential.
If you want to feel more at one with Mother Nature when you go about your daily routine, we offer you the Wye Walnut bathroom furniture range…
When choosing a bathroom suite, many of us are restricted by the thought of a conventional toilet, sink and bath. However, by simply broadening your horizons and considering a bathroom furniture suite, you could maximise storage space, especially where it is severely lacking in your home as a whole.
With a variety of floorstanding and wall hung items available, including a vanity unit, back to wall toilet unit and matching bath panels, your bathroom suite needn’t be boring. Why not paint your wall a warming colour, add some marble-effect wall panels or introduce bathroom-friendly house plants, like we did above?
5. Independent Living
Whilst many of us think exclusively about our immediate bathrooms needs, it pays to think about how your bathroom usage may change in the coming years. A future-proofed bathroom can help you avoid costly alterations or updates further down the line. One thing to bear in mind is how accessible you’ll need your bathroom to be. If lack of mobility may be an issue as both you and your bathroom grow older, it may be worth seeking out some bathroom ideas for independent living.
And what is independent living? Well, as the name would suggest, it’s all to do with maintaining your independence, should your physical circumstances change. This could simply involve making your bathroom easier to get around or adapting for a disability.
Our independent living bathroom suite (above) is quite striking in its design but also offers a highly functional space, especially for those who lack mobility. There is an almost high-tech, contemporary feel with a Japanese-style smart toilet, but this look has been softened with wood-effect tiles (yet another big trend to look out for in 2023).
6. Fitted furniture
When it comes to fitted furniture, why should your kitchen have all the fun? If it’s something you’ve never really considered, fitted bathrooms offer a genuine clean-cut look, plenty of storage and easy maintenance.
One of the great things about a fitted furniture bathroom suite is how you can pick and choose the perfect combination of units for your exact space. And, unlike standalone furniture units, the look is completely seamless with an integrated countertop and plinth.
When searching bathroom suite ideas, I’m sure you’ll have come across fitted bathroom furniture as it’s an increasingly popular option for homeowners up and down the country. Typically featuring back to wall toilets and semi-recessed basins, the sleek appearance and suitability for bathrooms large and small make this a very attractive proposition.
7. Organic ensuite
Not all bathrooms contain or even need a bath; the ensuite being the most obvious space in which this holds true. When searching bathroom suite ideas for an ensuite, you’ll likely find plenty of quirky designs—after all, this is your own personal space where you can let your creativity run loose. So, how about something a little more organic?
If a lack of storage space is a real issue for you, it’s time to exploit every room in your home to their fullest potential, and this includes your ensuite. The Kemp bathroom furniture range (pictured above) features a riven grey stone-effect finish, inspired by the natural world.
Add in a selection of indoor plants and classic white metro tiles for an undeniably clean and contemporary appearance.
8. Minimalist and designer
We finish our round-up of bathroom suite ideas for 2023 with a real style statement. If you’re searching for something designer, yet don’t want to pay designer price tags, the Ellis bathroom suite from Mode Bathrooms could be right up your street.
Complete with a gorgeous freestanding bath, plus matching close coupled toilet and pedestal basin, this suite is ideal if clean lines and minimalism are your go-to style.
Elongated curves are echoed throughout this clean, contemporary suite, whilst the toilet which sits flush against the wall (no pun intended!) helps make cleaning a breeze. With a suite like this, you certainly don’t want to go overboard with accessories or colours. Just a few, well-chosen prints or pot plants, plus a monochrome or neutral palette, will create a high-end look that could easily be at home in a boutique hotel or spa retreat.
