Certain rooms only work in certain houses, so if youre living in a modern high rise apartment the traditional bathroom isnt 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.
How many of us have had a bathroom with a cluttered airing cupboard? With the modern bathroom theres no need to cram your toiletries, towels and cleaning fluids around the boiler. With fitted vanity units, storage units and cabinets youll have all the space you need. When examining modern bathroom design, wall-hung furniture has to get a mention. White gloss will never go out of fashion, but more recently furniture finishes such as wenge, beech and maple have made a real emergence in popularity.

You may also think of installing a wall mounted sink and floating cupboards. This will eliminate them from taking too much floor space. Also, you can utilize the floor for other purposes such as putting a trash can or a plant.
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. 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 dont want holes or rust, the more dilapidated it looks the better. Even consider running sandpaper over the paint work and claw feet. Its always worth looking out for old fittings at antique shops and car boot sales.
The country style bathroom is perhaps the easiest type of design to create, and like the traditional bathroom only really works well within the right house. The classic country look is best associated with floral wallpaper, high beams, basin frills and a bath canopy. Following the traditional design, cast iron baths and deep ridged sanitary ware are what gives the country bathroom its nostalgic look. Check, floral or plaid curtains are preferred over roller blinds, and shutters, though rare in England, offer a great form of privacy as well as adding to the country effect. Wood plays a big part in this look, and almost all furniture works well in this setting, especially beech, maple, ash and oak vanity units and cabinets.
