Using period fittings and a few vintage trims you, your bathroom can travel back in time and become a place which invokes both relaxation as well as elegance and luxury. This style is typified by freestanding roll-top baths, and brass fittings are a must.
If this is the style you’re going for, it’s a good idea to pick a period and try and replicate it. There are a range of popular periods such as Victorian and Edwardian, with art-deco bathrooms seeing a real comeback. It’s also a nice idea to pick up some original antiques and restore them, to really invest in the period look.
Using grey as the predominant colour in your bathroom is a design language that’s been growing in popularity in recent years. It provides a sophisticated and modern look which won’t end up looking out of date in a few years.
If you choose this style, it’s a good idea to shop around for different coloured bathroom furniture. You’ll want to commit fully to the monochrome vibe, going with white and black accents to add some variety.
Back to nature
Using natural materials to adorn the walls and floor of your bathroom can create a really warm and traditional feel which has been rising in popularity. Using wood and stone is essential for this look. You can find stone basins and baths to bring a real rugged touch to your bathroom.
It’s also a good idea to look into different types of wood panelling because it not only fits perfectly with that rustic look, but also provides insulation to keep your bathroom warm during those winter months.
Walk in showers and wet rooms are certainly an indulgence, but definitely not one that’s impossible to obtain in this day and age. Although they can involve some initial building work, investing in a wet room can make for a truly amazing shower experience.
If you can’t afford to fully invest in a wet room, then there are a range of low profile shower basins on the market which can replicate the sense of a seamless transition from floor to shower without the need to waterproof the rest of the room.
