Too often we think that our bathrooms have to be simple and modern in order to be practical, functional and enjoyable. But the reality is, you can have a bathroom and furniture that oozes glamour, style and sophistication, without losing the benefits of good function. Her are just some inspirations from the most stylish decades and periods in history, to help you choose bathroom furniture with style.
Bathroom Furniture from Ancient RomeThe Romans held bathing in high esteem, linking cleansing with ritual and purification. All citizens had access to public baths, and the wealthiest had running water in their houses. To take inspiration from Ancient Rome for your bathroom furniture, think luxurious marble, moulded gold taps, a chaise longue for reclining after bathing, shelves on which to store Rome-inspired beauty products containing olive oil, and beautiful gold-leaf bathroom mirrors.
Bathroom Furniture from the Victorian AgeThe Victorian bathroom style leaned towards prettiness and simplicity, with freestanding clawed feet baths, stencilled walls, showers with a wide brass showerhead and wood-panelled surrounds. To source bathroom furniture that fits with this style, look for decorative items like cane chairs, oriental rugs, landscape pictures, and mirrors with moulded frames and antique gold leaf. Windows should be decorated with pretty gathered curtains. To synchronise your bathroom furniture and suite, go to antique dealers, local auctions and even scrap yards in search of an original freestanding bath to create the centrepiece of the room.
Bathroom Furniture from the 1920sArt deco fans will love a 1920’s themed bathroom. Before the depression, glamour and class were the trend for homes, and bathrooms were seen as a romantic sanctuary. Copy the style by choosing bathroom furniture echoing those glamorous days. Everything was kept neat and functional, so hidden medicine cabinets were popular, as were towel rails integrated into the sink. Hot water heated towel rails were firmly in vogue too. Contrasting these practical items was bathroom furniture such as beautiful light fixtures and decorative sconces. Frosted glass was a popular option. For these. Add a pretty chair or chaise longue, some paintings reflecting the times, and buy an old-fashioned radio to listen to some jazz while you bathe.
