Your bathroom is one of the most used spaces in your home, so it’s vital to choose the right one for you.
A classic style bathroom will suit any style home, so here are some tips for achieving a classic style in any space.
Matching the Style of Your Home
Traditional bathrooms often feature more subtle and neutral colours such as creams and whites, allowing them to easily fit in with the style of the rest of your home, so they’re really the best choice. More contemporary bathroom styles can seem appealing, but you have to ask yourself if you’re still going to be a fan of it in a year, five years, or even ten years. By choosing a traditional, classic style you can be sure that you’re going to enjoy it for years to come – as well as potentially adding value if and when you come to sell your home.
As is so often the case, the devil’s in the detail, and so to achieve a good bathroom style you need to concentrate on the little things, such as taps, plugs and fittings. It’s vital to carry your chosen classic style throughout the bathroom and into these details, because if you get these wrong it could ruin the entire feel of your bathroom. Traditional taps are usually finished with chrome, but if you have a bigger space it can be really eye-catching to have brass taps.
Again, if you have quite a lot of space, a claw footed roll top bath is incredibly luxurious and really enhances the overall aesthetic style. If space is minimal, why not opt for either a shower head over a bath or to gain a sense of grandeur go with a walk-in shower. There’s no need to compromise comfort just because you don’t have a massive room! To carry the classic feel all the way through, go for a retro styled toilet with on-the-wall cistern and chain flush – this will be a little more expensive, but will really complement the room as a whole.
Making the wrong choice and ending up with a style you’re not happy with could cost you a lot of money to change in the future, so it’s important to consider this carefully.
