How to create the perfect traditional bathroom design

Creating the perfect traditional bathroom design involves a combination of classic elements, elegant fixtures, and timeless decor. A traditional bathroom design will typically include details such as ornate mouldings, rich wood finishes, and vintage accents, and will likely require a professional bathroom designer to help guide you through the process. Luckily, you’re in exactly the right place – here at NPM Bathrooms, we’ve got over 30 years of experience in designing and supplying bathrooms with a focus on both quality and value, and we know exactly what it takes to create the perfect, traditional bathroom aesthetic.

Choosing the right materials

When it comes to creating a traditional bathroom, it’s important to choose the right materials. Marble and porcelain are popular choices for this style, as they offer a classic and elegant look. We’d say it’s worth considering large-format tiles on the walls and floors to create a sense of spaciousness within your bathroom. Plus, if you want to add some texture, you can also incorporate natural stone or mosaic tiles to really make your walls pop.

At NPM Bathrooms we’ve made sure we’re able to cater to a wide range of budgets and styles, so our expansive showroom is stocked with a huge selection of bathroom tiles for you to explore – you’ll find everything from soft pastel tones to bolder and more vibrant shades, as well as metallic effects and other intriguing textures.

Select classic fixtures

When selecting fixtures for your traditional bathroom, we’d say it’s best to opt for classic styles that will stand the test of time. Freestanding clawfoot tubs, pedestal sinks, and brass faucets are all popular choices for traditional bathrooms. What’s more, fixtures with ornate details and a vintage feel can really amplify the traditional aesthetic of your bathroom space. As an easy rule of thumb, when it comes to traditional fixture aesthetics, aim for standalone features with metallic detailing, as these can really give your bathroom a distinguished feel.

Consider your lighting carefully

Lighting plays a crucial role in creating the perfect traditional bathroom. So, try to incorporate plenty of natural light by installing large windows or skylights, and consider adding a chandelier or vintage light fixtures to create a warm, inviting atmosphere. Sconces can also be used to add extra lighting around the vanity area – look for sconces that almost resemble old fashioned street lamps, as these can add a real Dickensian feel to your space (of course, this is only advised if you’re looking to create a certain kind of traditional aesthetic!).

Add accessories

Finally, it’s time to add the finishing touches to your traditional bathroom. Consider adding vintage or antique accessories such as mirrors, picture frames, and candleholders. Decorative towels and a plush rug can also add a touch of luxury to the space. Plus, you can add some greenery or fresh flowers to bring some life into the room, while also providing a nice dash of colour, and a refreshing feel.
