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..
Check floral or plaid curtains are preferred over roller blinds and shutters though rare in England offer a great form of privacy as well as adding to the country effect. Wood plays a big part in this look and almost all furniture works well in this setting especially beech maple ash and oak vanity units and cabinets.
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.
