As with the country and traditional bathrooms cast iron baths are a must. Either a roll-top or slipper bath will do and although you don't want holes or rust the more dilapidated it looks the better. Even consider running sandpaper over the paint work and claw feet. It's always worth looking out for old fittings at antique shops and car boot sales. Counter top basins are highly recommended in this setting and the look out for extremely unusual decorated designs. Place it on a washstand or run-down vanity unit. Add unique ornaments and antique framed mirrors.
The bathroom has come along way in the past one hundred years. Once just a basic tub set in front of the living room fire and filled with buckets of water the bathing experience is now a luxury in almost every western home. Back then a "bathroom" was something only the wealthy and privileged could afford to have in their house. It was this trend which lead to the mass production of bathroom products.
Certain rooms only work in certain houses so if you're living in a modern high rise apartment the traditional bathroom isn't going to work for you. If you have an old cottage or villa retreat this style of bathroom is one you should definitely consider. Almost always the bath is the centre piece attraction of the traditional bathroom. A free-standing roll-top or slipper bath sits proudly on a dark polished floor and only if going for a traditional continental style bathroom will an inset or sunken tub hold appeal. Either a wall-mounted faucet or a free-standing one looks classy. Deep ridges and curved angles are what makes the traditional sanitary ware what it is - bold and masculine.
Select a motif for the bathroom. Bathrooms have different styles. If you have a modern house it is most likely that you want a modern bathroom design. If you live in a manor house you will probably choose different motifs for the bathrooms in your home but I bet you probably stick to a romantic or exotic style. When you are remodeling an old bathroom space is very important. Big ideas do not go very good in a small bathroom. What do I mean? Redesigning a small bathroom must be done between some framed parameters. You will read about these parameters in the course of this article.
