When done well, traditional bathrooms strike the perfect balance of an elegant, vintage aesthetic, whilst having all of the practical, luxury elements of a modern bathroom. Traditional Victorian bathrooms can look very expensive, so you’d be forgiven if you’d put your dreams of bathing in a glorious roll top bath, surrounded by eye-catching vintage features, aside. However, in the latest blog post by Boss Construction, we discuss simple changes you can make to your bathroom space to create the traditional style you’ve been lusting after.
Mix Old and New
The vintage aesthetic has made a big comeback in terms of popularity in the last few years. Consequently, many high street stores are stocking modern products that emulate this style, making it easier than ever to showcase it in your home.
You don’t have to spend a fortune on antiques or spend time sourcing uncommon finds from the internet to mimic a Victorian bathroom style. What’s more, mixing old pieces with more modern goods will ensure your bathroom remains visually pleasing, as well as practical and luxurious.
Pair Colours Thoughtfully
The colour scheme of a room can dramatically change its atmosphere. If you are creating a Victorian bathroom, a monochrome colour scheme can work especially well, alongside muted pastel shades that have an elegance all of their own. Using two or more shades from the same pallet can also be a good way to add depth and warmth to a room that may otherwise look plain.
Bathrooms tend to be one of the smallest rooms in a home, so there is often no need to find more than one or two statement items to fill it. A roll top bath is one of the most typical features of a traditional bathroom and you can often come across good bargains in high street stores or obtain one second-hand.
Other typical statement features of a traditional bathroom include high cistern toilets, vintage vanity units and monochrome floor tiles.
