Whether you live in a period home and are looking to create a bathroom that reflects its character, or want to move away from the stark minimalism of contemporary design, creating a cosy, inviting and relaxing sanctuary is easier than you may think. Statement pieces such as freestanding baths and accessories – think soft furnishings, feature lighting and ornate mirrors – provide plenty of opportunities for you to make your mark and create an individual space that reflects your personality as well as your lifestyle.
A great starting point and must-have for any period-style bathroom is a classic, roll-top bath. Our Claremont slipper bath features elegant, traditional styling and is sure to create a real focal point. Made from double-skinned acrylic with resin reinforcement, the Claremont bath comes in two sizes – pictured is the 1700mm version, which measures 1680mmL by 780mmH by 720mmW. Providing the perfect finishing touch, Claremont baths come with elegant feet, which are available in white, chrome or black allowing you to personalise your tub and create a cohesive colour scheme.
When it comes to choosing your basin, go for a pedestal design for that refined, traditional look. Our beautiful Bloomsbury basins are ideal for this and are beautifully complemented by a choice of WCs, including a high level WC, which exudes period charm.
Oozing classical elegance, our Marlborough curved basin unit is a real statement piece. In a timeless, hand painted, cotton white finish, it is topped with a luxurious honed marble worktop, which is perfect for displaying your bathroom accessories.
Ornate mirrors work beautifully within period décors. Try hanging a collection of decorative styles together to create a striking feature wall. Mix and match vintage or replica mirrors for a real eclectic look or treat yourself to a new set. We love these copper-effect hanging mirrors by Laura Ashley.
You can have fun choosing glamorous accessories, as when it comes to period-style bathrooms, more is definitely more! This mirrored Laura Ashley tissue box features a sophisticated flock pattern and will add subtle colour to your bathroom.
