How many of us have had a bathroom with a cluttered airing cupboard? With the modern bathroom there's no need to cram your toiletries towels and cleaning fluids around the boiler. With fitted vanity units storage units and cabinets you'll have all the space you need.
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.
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.
