Interior Stylist, Susie Clegg, believes the bathroom is the perfect place to experiment with colour and pattern. Create a stylish, invigorating retro bathroom design using the latest tile collections from Mandarin Stone. Our decorative and patterned ceramic and porcelain tile ranges feature funky patterns and bright colours that capture a fun, retro feel. We have plenty of retro bathroom ideas to help you bring yours to life, no matter how big or small.
The concept of the sterile, white bathroom is a pretty new thing if you think about it. Prior to the 1990s bathrooms offered plenty of colour and character. Think avocado bathroom suites and pink fluffy carpets! As with many interior trends, they come full circle and we are now seeing more eclectic styles and individuality in bathroom design once again. Retro bathroom design really encompasses anything from the 1950s right through until the end of the 1980s, so vintage design elements can be incorporated too.
To create a fun bathroom that is full of character, select free standing pieces including basins and baths rather than built in units. Paint a roll top bath a bright colour and choose a stylish, colourful concrete basin from Kast.
