Notting HillTraditional Bathroom, London
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Choose your styleThere are many styles of freestanding bath to choose from. You could go for traditional or modern, or opt for one with feet or one without – the list is endless. When choosing your tub, think about the impact you want your bathroom to make. The bath in this image cleverly fuses traditional and contemporary. If you’re feeling brave, you could choose something really unusual, like the marble one shown earlier, which would be a great way of adding personality to your bathing space.
Opt for crosshead tapsThey’re not flashy and they might not feature super-smart mixers, but a pair of traditional crosshead taps are easy to handle, pleasing to look at and are a staple of any period bathroom. And, treated well, should last you a lifetime, too and look beautiful fitted on a freestanding tub, as seen here. Always try out taps in the showroom to make sure that they feel pleasant to use – a traditional curved design is generally more comfortable to handle than a more angular modern one.Turn on the style with fabulous tap designs
Thanks to its strength, a composite bath promises to be a long-term fixture in your bathroom, which is good news considering its stunning good looks. This Paris bath, by The Water Monopoly, is made from Vitrite, a stone and mineral composite that replicates the look of an early 20th century French fireclay bath, but without the weight.TELL US…What does your dream bath look like?
