  • Traditional bathroom with claw-foot bath

    Traditional bathroom with claw-foot bath

    Introduce 1920s flourishes such as wall sconces and claw feet to a bathroom scheme to give it an atmospheric feel.  A simple scheme of white fittings with grey walls takes the traditional elements into the present, especially when you spot the shutters and metro tiles, which are both super on-trend right now.

  • Sparkling white traditional bathroom

    Sparkling white traditional bathroom

    Create a gleaming scheme in a traditional bathroom with white walls and white fitttings, combined with a sheeny silver mirror and furniture. A his and hers basin is  a stylish yet practical choice, allowing for speedy teeth cleaning after a long and tiring day. The mirror hits exactly the right note here. Its shimmering edging frames it perfectly and it’s just the right side of traditional without looking flamboyant.

    Mix modern and contemporary bathroom decorating styles to create a look that is individual to you. In this bathroom, the fittings are all traditional in their appearance, though the gold finish on the taps and shower head provide a departure from the expected. Metro tiles bring the room up to date, too, along with the roughly varnished floorboards and the exposed bath base.

  • Soothing stone-clad bathroom with chrome accents

    Create a relaxing bathroom space with warm putty tones on the walls and spa-like stone finishes. Here, stone tiles have been used to clad the bath, floor and a section of the walls, blending tonally with the soft earthy-pink paint for a traditional look. Polished chrome accents – such as this radiator/ towel rack – bring a light finish to the rest of the scheme.
