The owners of this bathroom achieved a classic look by buying a traditional-style bath online. White-painted tongue-and-groove panelling on the walls adds to the laid-back country theme.

2/8 Towel rail
A Roman blind made in a cerise floral fabric and co-ordinating towels break up the all-white scheme with pops of colour.
4/8 Roman blind
To keep costs down, the owner bought the floral fabric and made up the Roman blinds herself.
The period-style roll-top bath takes pride of place in this bathroom. Vinyl flooring is warm underfoot and perfect for a family bathroom.
To add to the traditional feel, the owner went for a period-style bath and shower/bath mixer tap. Letters spell out 'relax' on the shelf that runs around the top of the panelling.

8/8 Before the makeover
The new bathroom is barely recognisable from how it used to look, with dated floral wallpaper and peach wall tiles.
