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.
Today thanks to advanced plumbing and modern technology the bathroom may well have evolved as far as it can. With luxury steam rooms and hydrotherapy baths it's difficult to imagine how bathrooms could get any more sophisticated. That said the bathroom like any room in the house is ever changing in terms of design trends.
Chrome and stainless steel are the ultimate choice in the modern bathroom and taps and bath mixers are available in a number of contemporary designs rather than the traditional style faucets. Also choose chrome towel rails over standard white radiators as well as matching chrome accessories..
