If you have a traditionally styled interior throughout your home and wish to carry on the theme in your bathroom, acquiring the right furniture can be difficult. Modern bathroom suites can sometimes lack personality and warmth; therefore the traditional style can often provide you with the most comforting environment. There are many contemporary designs widely available on the market in order to create space, clean lines and the most practical design, however creating a traditional fashion with modern furnishings can be achieved with just a few helpful ideas!
Marble floors are a good choice as not only do they convey your chosen design they also influence glamour and opulence. Purchasing wooden furniture in a slightly dark shade will also portray the traditional style and prove durable over time. Natural materials such as wicker baskets and displaying plants or flowers will increase aesthetic pleasures as well influence a calming ambience.
Lavish materials such as thick cotton towels, silk drapes and plush rugs will enhance the luxury of your traditional bathroom and generate a cosy feel. Chandeliers are an extravagant but great way of creating the traditional style. Candles and incense create a warming atmosphere that can sometimes be lacking in contemporary styled bathrooms. Lamps are a good alternative to harsh ceiling lighting and dimmer switchers can help initiate relaxation. Keep colours clean and simple if your bathroom lacks space as fussy decor can make a room seem smaller. If you have a larger space, creating a feature wall with traditional wallpaper will be a great way of introducing tradition and a way of injecting your own personality into your bathroom. Mirrors are a useful way of making a room seem bigger however and purchased in an ornate design will increase the overall design.
Roll top baths are the ultimate in traditional style, they are a time honoured piece of furniture which are also practical and offer the upmost in comfort. Purchasing gold accessories such as bathroom taps, towel rings and toilet roll holders will give the impression of a more classical look than if you purchase them in silver. Vanity units with an integrated sink will fit your design perfectly and also provide extra storage for any bathroom accessories. Choose wooden toilet seats rather than glossy white alternatives to complete the look.
