What is a traditional bathroom?

Once again we were requested for a traditional bathroom by clients for whom we were refurbishing their newly bought home, but what is a traditional bathroom?

After walking them down to the bottom of their garden, spade in hand, ready to dig a pit, we returned to the warmth of the house to discuss (with a few chuckles) the needs and wants for their new traditional bathroom!

The results were: 

  • double basins inset into a stone top
  • heated mirror fronted cabinets
  • a large stylish towel rail
  • underfloor heating
  • freestanding slipper bath with taps and spout emanating from a shallow marble breakfront
  • a large shower space with doorless glass surround
  • a monsoon shower head and powerful body jets on both sides
  • a suspended automatic WC with stone integral recessed cistern
  • a patterned marble floor
  • painted panelling
  • a power extraction system
  • hidden and rather neat low voltage lighting for effect 
  • ... and some stylish IP rated lights for practical needs. 

Add music, a glass table with flowers, two glasses and a bottle of bubbly and there you have it - a traditional bathroom and one happy couple with a fantastic new space to relax!

But wait... no pedestal basin with pipes hanging out the back? No lino on the floor? No shower cubicle with a 12” step up? No WC with a visible waste pipe thrusting through the wall? No plastic bath panel? This is a bespoke bathroom renovation with style and class.
