Creating a Timeless Aesthetic in Your Bathroom
A timeless interior achieves a sophisticated feeling with curated styling, but simultaneously feels inviting with a homely and simple aesthetic. A homes laundry and bathroom needs longevity and durability, but what colours are timeless? What materials can withstand daily wear and tear? Can décor be aesthetically timeless? Novalé reveals our ultimate secrets to creating a timeless looking bathroom renovation.
The secret algorithm to achieve the perfect balance starts with a simple base. With plain cabinetry, tiles, fixtures and neutral palettes, homeowners are then free to add dramatic, minimal or personal styling on top.
“Don’t be afraid to be bold with your design choices. You can create any number of looks if you start with a simple grey or white cabinetry as your base – then accessorise creatively,” says Neale Whitaker one of Australia’s foremost style gurus.

Timeless Tiles: Marble
Marble is a natural stone that can be cut into a range of shapes. Natural stone is entirely unique as no two pieces are cut alike, meaning marble tiles have varying tones and patterns.
Aesthetically, the look of a marble title has a white background with some light or sometimes dark grey veining throughout the stone. As the stone’s base is white, it’s hard to go wrong when trying to achieve a minimalist and timeless colour scheme. Marble is a title of pure sophistication and sheer luxurious beauty, creating a warm feeling in any ordinary space.
Carrara marble is the most popular variety of marble titles, named after its origin; this stone is quarried from the city of Carrara in Tuscany, Italy. Although, if you are looking for a cheaper and a lower maintenance title, some alternate stones can simulate the same look as marble, for example, porcelain.
These days with so many technological advancements, it is hard to tell the difference between a manufactured marble stone and a natural marble. Besides, manufactured stone provides many more benefits such as high resistance to liquids, stains, scratches and heat.
Timeless Tapware and Accessories
Fixtures are a great way to add a feature colour and a warm texture into your bathroom or laundry space. However, the key to timeless looking tapware is unified colours. Whatever colour you choose, make sure the fittings, accessories and even the towels rails match together, to achieve a cohesive but striking aesthetic for your bathroom renovation.
Although matte black, copper and gold metals have become a modern trend for bathroom tapware and accessories, chrome is still Australia’s number one choice for a timeless bathroom renovation.
The continued appeal of chrome is based on practicality, as silver metal is easier to clean and maintain, with strong resistance to scratches and fingerprints. Aesthetically chrome’s silver colour and shiny texture will seamlessly fit into any bathroom’s style and palette. Chrome tapware is such a popular choice that you would be hard-pressed to find a design that isn’t available in its shiny finish.
Timeless Colour Palettes: Monochromatic
A monochromatic colour palette takes one colour and adds varying degrees of black, white and grey into the mix, to create a varied range of tones to use through a space. Interior designers refer to this colour palette as the best way to achieve a minimalistic and timeless design while maintaining some sort of interest through tonal accents.
For your next timeless bathroom renovation, simply mix marble tiles with matching chrome tapware and accessories for an elegant but straightforward monochromatic aesthetic. Sure to impress guests for the test of time whilst allowing for flexibility and elaborate styling.

Timeless Styling and Décor
While some colours and materials can be ‘stylish’ no matter the year, timeless décor is more complicated. Most might disagree, but décor cannot always be timeless. However, functional items will always be in style, such as plants, candles, and sentimental family objects like photos and homemade art.
Hence why the minimalist base is the key to making a room feel fresh and updated for a long time. As a homeowner develops new styles; they can easily change the décor of their bathroom rather than having to renovate the entire space because they can no longer stand the thought of a lime green bathroom.
For example, any type of styling will match well with white marble tiles and chrome fixtures, from bold 70s décor, your Grandmas kitschy vase and everything in between. Remember “If you’re looking at being a bit more adventurous and a bit more decorative in the bathroom, then my best advice is a little goes a long way” according to Neale Whitaker.
