For the sanitary ware go with wall-hung or standard close-coupled toilet and basin with pedestal with acute angles and a contemporary design. Abstract towel rails and wenge wall-hung furniture fit well in the fantasy bathroom giving it that calm almost surreal look.
The bathroom has come along way in the past one hundred years. Once just a basic tub set in front of the living room fire and filled with buckets of water the bathing experience is now a luxury in almost every western home. Back then a "bathroom" was something only the wealthy and privileged could afford to have in their house. It was this trend which lead to the mass production of 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.
