Making everyone who steps inside your bathroom instantly at home, this warm and inviting decorating style takes inspiration from the past, with perfectly placed elements that also feel familiar and comforting.
So, when it comes to traditional bathroom design, there are six key elements: colour, bath, shower, vanity, light, fixtures and fittings.
When designing your traditional bathroom, stick to a soft colour palette. We recommend using neutrals such as cream, beige and tan; and colours such as deep blues, greens or browns. For a fresh twist, pale blues, lavender, and mild greens all work well.
Integrating your shower and bath is a match made in heaven for traditional bathroom designs. Incorporating a hand-held shower head to your bath fixtures make this signature design element an easy one.
When creating a traditional bathroom, start first with natural light. While plantation shutters work well on windows for privacy, you may like to consider turning these into a feature by incorporating stained-glass designs.
Sconces alongside the vanity will enhance the traditional elegance of your space, while a crystal chandelier centred in your bathroom would put the icing on the cake.
As this decorating style is all about warmth, you may also want to consider gently incorporating downlights (for background lighting, task lighting (above mirrors) and accent lighting (to highlight any feature areas within your space) for dark days and nights
