Even when the temperature drops, your creativity never stops. We take a look back at some of our favourite customer bathrooms from the past few months.
Hi. I’m Ruth, Victoria Plum’s very own in-house interior designer. One of the most enjoyable aspects of my role is looking through all the lovely bathrooms you tag us into on Instagram and Twitter. And while we’re all looking forward to springtime, I’m sure you’ll forgive me for taking you back to those cold, crisp, winter months for just a while.
No matter how far along the bathroom planning journey you may be, there’s no better way to be inspired than a quick browse through real bathrooms in real homes. Not only will you gain a genuine sense of what you can achieve, but you can also see current bathroom trends in action.
I’ve picked out my favourite customer bathrooms from December, January and February and, while it may have been cold back then, we’re sure these wonderful designs will leave you feeling all warm inside. So, without further ado, let’s enjoy the very best of “Share your Style”…
Going for gold
Well, the Winter Olympics and Paralympics may be done and dusted for another 4 years, but this beautiful bathroom from Victoria Plum customer @lauraccrombie on Instagram is certainly a winner in my book!
Cooling blue and grey undertones pair perfectly with gold accents to create a light, bright, sleek and stylish bathroom.
I particularly like the use of the Dulwich double vanity unit and storage set, providing separate washbasins for both partners and handy storage space for spare towels. Featuring a mix of traditional and contemporary touches, the modern vintage look is a big bathroom trend this year, while the gold elements propel this stunning space into podium position.

Fresh and light
Light, bright, clean and white, combined with lush greenery. It’s a look that never fails to impress! Whilst Victoria Plum customers @thediydads have primarily used traditional products, this beautiful space has a real modern vibe to it. I can just imagine it as a lively family bathroom, full of life and laughter.
The white brick tiles, concealed shower and vintage grey bath panel are all classic touches, the on-trend black accents bring a subtle industrial feel to proceedings. The folding shower screen is a great idea for family bathrooms, giving you full access during your children’s bath time and opening up the space when not in use.
Finally, when it comes to accessories, this bathroom has a real outdoors feel, with the perfect amount of pot plants and wood surfaces.

Green and white delight
How’s this for an exciting bathroom by Victoria Plum customer @my70sbungalow on Instagram? Our bestselling Eden furniture has been used practically to boost storage in this small(ish) space. Green shades continue to dominate bathroom colour palettes, providing a sense of nature, calm and clarity, while green and white is an on-trend bathroom colour combination.
I love all the organic touches too, including the rattan style blinds, abundance of pot plants and marble effect wall tiles. Oh…and not forgetting the fabulous feature floor!

Minimalist and monochrome
This bathroom by @stepinto22 demonstrates a minimalist, monochrome contemporary design. The simplicity, neutrality and boxy-shaped elements create a space that is truly appealing. The look can be easily achieved with tiles or wall panels and I especially like the chunky white vertical radiator placed against the stone-effect grey wall.
Floating vanity units help to bring a dreamy quality to any bathroom. Meanwhile, the countertop basin and wall mounted tap help continue the minimalist theme.
Marble, or at least marble effect materials, are certainly proving popular in many of the customer bathrooms I’ve seen recently. The shower wall panels in this bathroom provide a luxurious look, while the wooden bath caddy and plants bring a softer, warmer feel to this little corner. For a true spa-like experience, a waterfall bath filler will add a sense of serenity to your bath time routine.

From the highly contemporary, we head to the other end of the style scale, with a charming traditional bathroom by Victoria Plum customer @victorianhouse_renono37 on Instagram. The grey bevelled metro tiles, classic close coupled toilet and Victorian radiator produce a look that is clean with sharply defined lines and vintage embellishments. The pared-back colour palette effectively allows the textures and patterns to shine through, especially when it comes to the fantastic feature floor.
This stunning bathroom goes to prove that monochrome design can work wonderfully well in both contemporary and traditional settings.

- Orchard Winchester close coupled toilet with painted wood seat white
- Victorian Deep Metro light grey bevelled gloss wall tile
Light, airy, minimal and modern, Victoria Plum customer @our.newfoundland has successfully combined contemporary and traditional styles—a recurring Modern Vintage trend we are seeing in the bathroom world at present. This mixing of modern and period styles shows a sense of informed, considered design and serves up a real feast for the eyes!
Featuring a harmonious blend of neutral, organic shades and natural materials, I really like the wooden elements picked out in the vanity unit and bath caddy.

- Mode Hale white and grey marble countertop basin
This blush pink, spacious bathroom by @ournestintheglen on Instagram is utterly delightful, bringing together contemporary Victoria Plum products like the freestanding tub and toilet, with glimmering gold accents. When used in combination, it produces a light, airy atmosphere, aided, not least, by the skylight and window.
One of the features I really like is the tiling, with thin brick tiles arranged vertically rather than horizontally. There are plenty of ways you can use metro tiles to bring more visual interest to your bathroom design.

This gorgeous bathroom by Victoria Plum customer @yas.wyatt.home shows hints of the Japandi design style taking off. Featuring lime-washed walls, sleek lines and elegant accessorising, it’s a space that I could easily see myself spending hours in (if it were mine, of course)!
The spa influence here is clear to see, with the freestanding bath front and centre, while the organic, neutral colour scheme brings a calming feel to the whole bathroom. The accessories, including warming wood elements, are carefully chosen, allowing this large and airy space to do all the talking. What a way to wrap up our latest Share your Style review!
