Our Industrial Bathroom Design Ideas Guide

industrial bathroom design guide

An industrial bathroom has been on-trend for a while now, following New York factory-style kitchens. Think industrial colours like bronze, gold and iron black teamed with tarnished wood, bold chunky fittings and warehouse stamp fonts. All with stripped back floors and walls to let the accessories really shine.

 If you’d love this look in your home, look no further, we’re here to help. Bathstore stock tons of items that will make your industrial bathroom ideas a reality, no matter what shape or size your space – from bronze taps and chunky sinks to concrete-style vanity units.

 Here are some great ways to create an industrial bathroom with fixtures, fittings and accessories:


When it comes to industrial bathrooms, block-like shapes work well. Try a deep square sink for an industrial feel, like this Noir veneto basin, which looks fantastic with matte black or bronze taps and waste. If you’re keen on extra storage, why not try a vanity unit. For example, this Mino vanity unit and built-in sink mimics the look of concrete for an industrial style twist.


Adding a new toilet to your industrial bathroom? There are a couple of different ways to go. If you loved the concrete-style grey vanity unit and sink, you can find a toilet to match. For example, this Mino toilet unit, minimal and understated against the mock-concrete block cistern. You could also bring in a vintage-style toilet to emulate that industrial revolution era charm. Or something more simple, like this Scene back to wall toilet, but still block-shaped, while you focus on other accessories to bring your industrial bathroom to life.


Anything that uses industrial colour gets a thumbs up from us to make your industrial bathroom really come to life, plus vintage Victorian-style pieces to add that rustic charm. This freestanding Belmont roll top bath does both. 

Another way to add industrial style to a bath is to accessorise a standard white square bath. You could add matte black or bronze taps and shower system similar to your sink, or affix a matte black framed bath screen, like our Noir bath screen.


From cubicles to wet rooms, industrial-style showers can be a great focal point in an industrial bathroom. With showers, it’s all in the fittings, for example coloured thermostatic valves such as these Etta bronze thermostatic shower valves or Noir thermostatic shower valves. A real hark back to 1950’s New York factories with chunky dials and handles.

Similar to the one mentioned above, you could also add a black rimmed shower screen, or go all out with a minimal but striking matte black shower head, such as our Noir design.


Industrial bathroom ideas become a reality with the storage you use in your space. Large distressed wood cabinets with industrial style stamps and metallic handles look great. However, if you’re wanting something a bit more fresh and modern, you could continue the industrial concrete look with a wall-mounted storage unit.


Add some industrial flair with accessories. This Noir radiator is perfect for bringing a polished, considered look to the room. You also might want to consider mirrors like this submarine style Noir round mirror. Other ways to bring some turn of the century charm could include anything from books and publications, to simple toilet roll holders.


Industrial bathroom lighting shouldn’t be overlooked as the final finishing touch to your space. Think exposed warm bulbs hanging from the ceiling, metallic pendant shades and quirky pipe-inspired feature lamps.
