Arguably the most timeless bathroom style on the market, the period bathroom is still very much, all the rage. If you’re looking to update your space to something a little more…vintage, than carry on reading for how to achieve your perfect traditional look!
Ultimately, your choice in bathroom fittings will have the biggest impact on the overall style of your bathroom. Don’t be afraid to choose bold ceramic pieces that will hold their own. For a truly traditional style, choose a freestanding roll top bath and if you’re feeling really confident, why not go for bath with feet? Just make sure to check that the style of feet you go for match your bathroom décor to avoid a contrast in styles. Choose a basin that exudes a historic pedigree -square-shaped basins are synonymous with both the Victorian and Edwardian design eras, and will add a sophisticated yet vintage feel to any room you place them in!
If you want a period bathroom, you have to fully commit to the style. Think about your radiators, taps, brassware finishes etc. as all of these things will have an impact on the style of your décor. Avoid more contemporary finishes like rose gold and copper; instead embrace timeless classics like chrome and nickel to achieve your desired décor scheme. With your brassware, exposed piping is a beautiful nod to past design eras, whilst the Belgravia taps are such to add the ultimate finish to any period bathroom.
The details are the very final touches to add to your bathroom; they’re what you turn to when all of the important things have been taken care of. Soap dishes, toilet roll holders, and bath racks are all excellent ways of really bringing your bathroom scheme to life and finishing off the look. It is even worth thinking about your flooring – rustic tiles or floorboards are great ways to perfect your style, and if you’re doing it on a budget, there are some great vinyl alternatives on the market.
