The 25 Best White Bathroom Ideas
The Traditional White Look
When someone makes mention of a white bathroom, this is the image that usually creeps in, or something very similar. As we can see in the picture, all the bathroom fixtures are very similar shades of white, giving a monochromic, all-white look.
This classic look, as seen in the image, was achieved with white tiled walls, a white freestanding tub, a white floating bathroom cabinet, a minimalist shower design with white frames. The beauty is accentuated with the natural lights coming in through the panoramic window.
White with a Touch of Grey
Is it white? Or is it grey? It is white, at least mostly. Homeowners are looking to retain the beauty of their bathroom for long without worrying too much about the maintenance. Or couples that have little children that very easily can smear dirt on their walls and floors, usually opt for this stylish option. This design ensures that you retain the finesse of the all-white finish, and at the same time, ensure that it is long-lasting.
Dark Floors with White walls
For you to fully appreciate the excitement that a white bathroom brings, you have to blend it seamlessly with a floor of a darker color shade. As seen in the image below. Most of the fixtures in this elegant bathroom are white or of a lighter shade than the much darker color, from which the floor is made. And this color blend sees the bathroom look warm and inviting at the same time.
Brick Patterned Walls
The walls do not have to be smooth and pure all the time, you can dare to be different. And you can do this with brick-patterned walls. They give the bathroom a Scandinavian look as it matches perfectly with the patterns on the floor. And the simplistic floating wall cabinet makes sure you use the available space economically. All that’s left to make this one of the best bathrooms you would ever lay your eyes on is an equally simple shower design and a freestanding bathtub.

Just ensure that all the available fixtures in the bathroom are the same shade, so the blend can be seamless. And everything can come together to look like one fantastic bathroom.

Instead of an elaborate cabinet to hold and keep things, we have a simple stool that just looks lovely. Put all that together, and you have a bathroom that is just right.

Considerations Designing White Bathrooms
When you make the decision for your bathroom to be all or mostly white, there are a few things you have to consider for you to pull it off just right. The following are a couple of those things to put forward when making that decision:
How many people would be using the bathroom?
It all boils down to maintenance, a white bath sure looks good. But it is much easier and much more likely to fade away and lose its touch faster than any other shade of color. You have to ensure the bathroom would not serve too many people, so you can adequately monitor and tend to it.
Would Children have access to it?
Children like to create a mess, don’t they? This is why your decision to make that bathroom strictly white has to weigh in whether children or younger adults, in some cases, would have access to your bathroom.
A white bath, in most cases, has every item, wall, and fixture in the color white. But homeowners these days want a blend of everything, texture, color, accents, and spontaneity. You can achieve all these with the right mix of the right features. The features you need to keep an eye out on, to better your chances of designing one of the best white baths imaginable are as follows:
The Wall: If you are looking to set up a bath and have it in white, it should come as no surprise that the wall is very likely going to be white. Most professional interiors decors advise that the white on the wall be a darker shade than the other fixtures in the bathroom. So it can serve as a background as others take center-stage.
When looking to add glam to your wall, don’t just look to painting the walls. You have other options like marbles, tiles, wallpapers, and a couple different ways to beautify your walls.
The Floor: Asides the walls, another part of the bathroom you have to get just right is the floors. You can go for a pure white finish, and achieve the all-white goal. Or you could add dark colors to highlight the walls and the other features in the bathroom.
What are these other features?
These include but are not limited to, the following:
The Sinks: What is a bathroom without one or more sinks. They are essential because of their functionality and also because of their aesthetic advantage. They add volume to the bathroom, beautify it, and allow for a better bathroom experience. In setting up your white bathroom, your sink(s) have a role to play, just like the floors and wall, you can make them plain white or give them another color to add depth to your bathroom design.
The Bathroom Cabinets: Ensure to get premium bathroom vanities, this could be single or double vanities. And either simple or more elaborate designs would work just fine, as long as it works with the general theme of the house or the bathroom more specifically. You have the freestanding, floating, and corner cabinets to choose from, each with its stylistic advantage.
The BathTub and Shower: You have a lot of options when you choose the bathtub and shower combo to go with your bathroom. You can opt for the freestanding bathtub with gold or vintage accents. This would ensure that your bathroom has character. And for the bathtub, you can settle for a minimalist design that would not take away any attention from the bathroom itself.
The Essentials: The little things matter as much as the much larger bathroom fixtures. Essentials like the floor mat, the vials, arts, and crafts on the wall, mirrors, and everything else should be in colors and textures that are worth the second look.
Now that you have an idea of what is expected, the many components that can give your bathroom that desired white appeal, you are looking to achieve. We would explore the best approaches to dabble into for the best results.
