If you love to fill your home with vintage accessories and antique homewares, you’ll want a period-inspired bathroom that’s designed to reflect the past, with all the traditional fixtures and fittings. A major benefit of opting for a classic bathroom is that it doesn’t date, and will still look attractive five or ten years from now.
The basics of a traditional bathroom interior are a roll-top tub – either new or an original, though a salvaged find may need work – a pedestal basin or washstand, and a WC, radiator and brassware that are in keeping with the rest of the room.
Painting your walls and cabinets in a timeless colour, installing a traditional-style radiator and window dressing are also important factors for achieving an authentic-looking period bathroom.
