The roll-top bath came from eBay for just a few hundred pounds, and was repainted in Farrow & Balls Teresa’s Green estate eggshell. Retro Metro tiles in Lido Blue from Fired Earth were chosen to tie in with the colour of the bath, and a traditional-style Savoy loo from Bathstore enhances the period look. The Marflow St James shower head and mixer from Dorking Plumbing Supplies also add to the Edwardian-era feel, while the minimal shower enclosure is from The Shower Lab.
1/7 Pretty period bathroom
2/7 Period fittings
To cut costs, the basin came from eBay and is matched with Lefroy Brooks taps. The floorboards were painted in Johnstone’s white eggshell and the period-style Lyons radiator came from 21st Century Radiators.
3/7 Vintage look
4/7 Basin mixer taps
Lefroy Brooks LB1100 bath mixer taps enhance the traditional style of the bathroom.
5/7 Country-style shelves
This shelf unit was made using old pine floorboards and simply painted in a distressed white finish.
6/7 Roman blinds
The bathroom layout has been changed completely as the chimney breast and fireplace has now been removed to fit in a roll-top bath. The basin is now where the loo was, the loo where the bath was and a shower enclosure has been tucked into the space next to the window.
