Victorian Bathroom Accessories

Victorian Bathroom Accessories

Victorian bathroom accessories are a fashionable way to improve your bathroom space. The Victorian era had a very distinct style of bathroom, including roll top baths, and chrome, gold, or nickel metal sections as many accessories were created from metal components in the Victorian era. Other materials to include and to look for in your accessories are pottery, china, and ceramic. White is a good colour to look for in these materials as it is traditional and can be mixed and matched in your bathroom.

The tiles are an important feature for your Victorian style bathroom, the tiles can change the whole design, this is why it’s important to get them right. Metro tiles are a wise choice, they are glossy and shaped in a way that represents the traditional Victorian style.

In terms of flooring, Victorian patterned tiles are a good choice, but failing that, wood effect flooring also gives the effect of a traditional bathroom.

Traditional style toilets normally come in two styles, one where the cistern is right above the pan, and one where the cistern sits high up on the wall behind. Either provide a Victorian style. You can get toilets that have a Victorian style to them, for example — the cistern may have an elegant shaped pattern on it.

Traditional basins tend to be ceramic and you can get them in styles that match the elegant shaped pattern on the toilet cistern. A matching Victorian bathroom is the way to go.

Freestanding roll top baths are the most aesthetically pleasing part of a Victorian style bathroom. If you have the space in your bathroom, then it is highly recommended that you include one as part of your Victorian bathroom suite.

If you are looking to get a Victorian style shower, you will need to purchase one that has exposed valves and a circular or apron shower head. For when you get out the shower and need to hang your towel up, perhaps a traditional radiator is a helpful addition that will look great in your Victorian bathroom.
