The absolute opposite of a fitted bathroom the shabby chic look is a mismatch of styles and products. You can even do the unexpected like put a put a refrigerator in the corner. Nothing is expected to match and pipework and plumbing are on show rather than concealed. This style is best suited to those who have inherited a bathroom and want to update it a little rather than fork out on a brand new bathroom suite.
Creating a floor plan to scale with just the walls doors and any windows shown and then placing different fixtures that have been scaled appropriately in various locations is a big help in finding the perfect design to fit your needs in the space allowed and can even be a lot of fun.
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.
