When decorating a traditional bathroom both soft tones and bold colours can work well. Strong tones of browns maroons and greens give a nice warmth to the room but be sure the bathroom is well lit maybe with a lavish chandelier. With the right colours antique gold can look better than chrome. Go for curtains never blinds. If going for a vanity unit rather than a traditional basin and pedestal choose an oak or cherry finish; or the white Cynk vanity unit is a good look with traditional baths and toilets.
One of the most appealing things about the traditional bathroom is clutter gives it more of a lived-in effect thus enhancing the traditional look. Don't be afraid to put plenty of pictures on the walls - black and white family portraits in gold frames are a good look. A chest of drawers or corner table with scented candles aromatherapy oils or flowers will really bring the room to life. As a finishing touch an old style set of weighing scales a large framed mirror or bulky traditional radiator will give the room that cozy old-fashioned feel.
And in a last note I would like to share with you an idea that will amplify the importance of the shower experience. Beauty is a relaxant and a beautiful environment in a contemporary bathroom is a remedy for the mind. Small changes can have big effects and one should not underestimate the power of our surroundings on our inner state of mind. The place where you clean and beautify yourself should it self be beautiful.
The absolute opposite of a fitted bathroom the shabby chic look is a mismatch of styles and products. You can even do the unexpected like put a put a refrigerator in the corner. Nothing is expected to match and pipework and plumbing are on show rather than concealed. This style is best suited to those who have inherited a bathroom and want to update it a little rather than fork out on a brand new bathroom suite. The key to decoration is neutral tones with a few dark colors. For the walls choose a matte or flat wall paint. Pale golds and yellows work particularly well as does floral or check patterned wallpaper.
