The perfect definition of understated elegance, Scandinavian bathrooms renovations are all about clean lines, soothing tones, and a minimalistic approach.

Teaming light natural grains with an abundance of natural light, this style instantly makes you relax from the moment you step inside.
So, when it comes to Scandinavian bathroom renovations and design, there are six key elements: colour, bath, shower, vanity, light, fixtures and fittings.

1. Colour

You can never go wrong with white on white when designing a Scandinavian bathroom. However, we recommend you also consider introducing one contrast colour into your palette. Black, grey, yellow, blue, or a metallic like bronze, all work well with the white base, timber textures and greenery that form the foundation of Scandinavian living

2. Bath


If space allows, the hero of your Scandinavian bathroom design should be a white freestanding oval bath.

3. Shower


A frameless shower teamed with a fixed circular waterfall shower head are the perfect pair when it comes to Scandinavian bathrooms.

4. Vanity


Wall mounted minimalistic designed vanities in white, timber, or a combination of the two are essential for Scandinavian bathrooms.

5. Light

Natural light is a core element of Scandinavian living. So, if this is currently poor it’s essential that you maximise this element in your renovation design by introducing additional windows and/or skylights.

From here you may also want to consider seamlessly incorporating downlights (for background lighting), task lighting (above mirrors) and accent lighting (to highlight any feature areas within your space).

If the textures and tones you’ve selected in your Scandinavian design are paired back, then make a considered statement in your bathroom by placing feature pedants in your contract colour over your vanity or bath.

6. Fixtures and Fittings

Clean design profiles in chrome, black and bronze will remain timeless in a Scandinavian designed bathroom. However, if other metallics are featured in another element of your bathroom (such as your tile pattern), then it’s always best to match these to your fixtures and fittings in order to ensure your bathroom maintains its minimalistic approach that’s the signature of Scandinavian decorating.
