Over the past decade with the popularity of TV shows like Changing Rooms the trend for old-fashioned bathrooms has seen a real upsurge. A rare gem of an old slipper bath or rusty traditional faucet may be found at a scrap yard or in a skip but thankfully manufacturers are keeping up with demand with skillfully crafted traditional bathroom products.
When decorating a traditional bathroom both soft tones and bold colours can work well. Strong tones of browns maroons and greens give a nice warmth to the room but be sure the bathroom is well lit maybe with a lavish chandelier. With the right colours antique gold can look better than chrome. Go for curtains never blinds. If going for a vanity unit rather than a traditional basin and pedestal choose an oak or cherry finish; or the white Cynk vanity unit is a good look with traditional baths and toilets.
As with the country and traditional bathrooms cast iron baths are a must. Either a roll-top or slipper bath will do and although you don't want holes or rust the more dilapidated it looks the better. Even consider running sandpaper over the paint work and claw feet. It's always worth looking out for old fittings at antique shops and car boot sales.
