The reign of Queen Victoria is remembered for a number of reasons. The rise of the British Empire, the explosion of worldwide trade and shipping but perhaps most importantly to us lovers of bathrooms is the resounding impact her reign had on the world of bathroom design.
Looking further than basic sanitary ware, and living up to the Victorian's high standards of luxury, elegance and style, we want to share with you some of our best tips and advice when designing your own Victorian style bathroom.
- The Bath
Starting with the centre piece, no Victorian bathroom is complete without a freestanding bath as a stunning centre piece. Available in a range of glorious colours, we have been very impressed with what Chadder and Co offer in particular with their unique cast iron bath restoration service.
2. Towel Warmers
First designed back in the 19th Century it was because of the Victorians that our factory, and more importantly towel warmers even exist! To be able to get out of your bath, and wrap yourself up in a warm towel in our eyes is the definition of luxury, and luckily we’re here to help. View our range of traditional towel warmers here.
One of the few parts of a Victorian style bathroom that you touch and interact with. Taps are paramount to not only the aesthetic of a space, but also the overall feeling of quality and luxury within a space. We love the options currently available from Waterworks. Their broad, high quality range of taps are stunning, particularly in a Victorian bathroom setting.
Eye catching and colourful, bathroom tiles are key to a successful Victorian bathroom. The Patterned collection of tiles from Hugo Oliver are particularly stunning and well suited for a traditional Victorian space. We would recommend using either a bold pattern or colour statement to achieve a stylish and period look.
