Traditionally themed bathrooms have become very popular over the past few years with Victorian and Edwardian styled bathrooms being top of most people’s lists. Retro themes and vibrant colours have also seen a resurgence, so how do you create a traditional bathroom.

It’s all in the planning

Planning is key to creating a traditional bathroom, so look in magazines and online for inspiration. Among the most popular fittings in any traditional bathroom are the freestanding bath and high level toilet. These are timeless fixtures and although expensive really make a traditional bathroom come to life.

Tiles also give a traditional look with checkerboard tiles for the floor and plain ceramic tiles for the walls. Dornbracht taps and mixers can also make a statement as well as a vintage ceramic basin.

Saving money on your bathroom

There are plenty of ways to save more while creating a traditional bathroom and the best way is to shop around. Check online prices and local bathroom suppliers for the best prices or visit reclamation yards who normally stock traditional bathroom pieces at reasonable prices.

Fixtures and fittings

As well as traditional taps and mixers, you should also look at adding a big bathroom mirror and some vintage light fittings; these will really stand out and finish off the look of the bathroom.
