  • Victorian Tiles

    Victorian-style tiles, with intricate patterns in muted tones, are ideal for floors or backsplashes to create this look.

  • Wood Panelling

    Wall surfaces like traditional panelling (wainscoting or beadboard) painted in dark hues add depth and serve as a backdrop for brass fixtures and furniture.

  • Brass finishes

    Choosing brass taps, showerheads, and handles with a brushed or aged finish can give the bathroom a subdued, antique look.

Fittings, Fixtures & Finishes

When it comes to bathroom fixtures, traditional vanity units that reflect the styles of past eras are key to recreating this look. Freestanding wooden vanities especially in dark woods or painted in vintage colours such as green or duck egg blue, seamlessly bring the room's design together. A classic clawfoot tub can act as a magnificent focal point, particularly when complemented with traditional brass taps and feet, enhancing the bathroom's traditional aesthetic. Brass details also play a crucial role in adding warmth and contrast to the dark walls and tiles. Choosing brass taps, showerheads, and handles with a brushed or aged finish can give the bathroom a subdued, antique look. Further incorporating brass through light fixtures, mirror frames, and cabinet hardware introduces a layer of luxury and warmth, enriching the space's overall feel. Lighting is another critical aspect, with warm, dimmable lights being ideal for adjusting the bathroom's ambience.

Walls, tiles & surfaces

For paint, traditional colours such as hunting green, warm charcoal greys, burgundy or light blues are the ideal choice to recreate this look. All these heritage colours add opulence and work well with panelling and brass fixtures for a timeless look. Dark grey or warm blacks offer sophistication, especially on feature walls or with wainscoting, and pair well with lighter or metallic details to keep the space from feeling too dark. Tiles inspired by Victorian or Edwardian styles, with intricate patterns in muted tones, are ideal for floors or backsplashes. Dark subway tiles can modernize the space subtly without clashing with the traditional theme, especially in matte finishes. Wall surfaces like traditional panelling (wainscoting or beadboard) painted in dark hues add depth and serve as a backdrop for brass fixtures and furniture. Plaster walls in dark tones offer texture and an old-world charm, enhanced by modern lighting to blend traditional and contemporary elements seamlessly.
