The roll-top bath came from eBay (opens in new tab) for just a few hundred pounds, and was repainted in Farrow & Balls (opens in new tab) Teresa’s Green estate eggshell. Retro Metro tiles in Lido Blue from Fired Earth (opens in new tab) were chosen to tie in with the colour of the bath, and a traditional-style Savoy loo from Bathstore (opens in new tab) enhances the period look. The Marflow St James shower head and mixer from Dorking Plumbing Supplies (opens in new tab) also add to the Edwardian-era feel, while the minimal shower enclosure is from The Shower Lab (opens in new tab).
1/7 Pretty period bathroom
2/7 Period fittings
To cut costs, the basin came from eBay (opens in new tab) and is matched with Lefroy Brooks (opens in new tab) taps. The floorboards were painted in Johnstone’s (opens in new tab) white eggshell and the period-style Lyons radiator came from 21st Century Radiators (opens in new tab).
3/7 Vintage look
An antique mirror over the basin adds exactly the right period feel, and is set above a clear glass gallery shelf from Room H20 (opens in new tab).The walls are painted in Johnstones (opens in new tab) matt white.
4/7 Basin mixer taps
Lefroy Brooks (opens in new tab) 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.
