How to give your bathroom suite a period touch
Period features in a home often add value to it, but even if you have a modern property, there is no harm in giving rooms a period and traditional look by the way they are decorated.
Like a kitchen, good bathroom suites are something that buyers look for. Whilst many people think that traditional bathrooms are the safe option, done right and done well, they can give off a feeling of luxury and extravagance, whilst maintaining all the modern functionality.
Period bathroom suites
The indulgence of a roll topped freestanding bath means it is something that is on the wish list of many people, and if your bathroom is big enough, they are essential to create the period look.
Even if you do not have the space to accommodate a freestanding bath, you can still add period features to your bath by adding a traditional shower mixer tap.
Modern designed bathroom suites often come with defined edges and in functional shapes, whereas period inspired console basins, toilets and baths will have elegant finishes and flowing designs.
Adding period accessories
Sometimes it is down to the accessories that will give your bathroom suite the period feel, no matter what the style of your home is.
A French mirror is a must for a period inspired bathroom suite and is extremely easy to find in all good home stores. A freestanding towel rail with fluffy white towels is another good option, as is the calming feel that comes with adding a few plants.
There are plenty of ornate chrome or brass bathroom fittings easily available, or for those that are looking for the real thing, pay a visit to your local reclamation yard; after all the attention is most definitely in the detail.
Decorating your period bathroom
When it comes to decorating your bathroom, texture is the key to a traditional feel. To fit in with the period look, feminine damask wallpaper is a good choice, and thanks to the popularity of feature walls, the choice of wallpapers suitable to go with traditional bathroom suites has increased dramatically.
Wood panelling, or tongue and groove, painted in a classic colour, such as mauve, cream, deep red or olive, is a design tip that offers a timeless, dignified and traditional look.
You also want to think about the tiles that you use. Original [insert link to Original Style bit on website] has produced a wide range of tiles that take inspiration from the Victorian and Art Deco eras, and would suit your period bathroom suite perfectly. If you are looking for something a bit simpler, choose styles that come in a brick pattern to complete the look.
