Renovation of Townhouse BathroomVictorian Bathroom, London

Eclectic bathroom: we had to organise the content of this bathroom in a lovely Victorian property.

In accord with the client, we wanted to preserve the character of the building but not at the expense of creativity and a good dose of quirkiness.We there fore used a mix of pebble and wood flooring to create a lavish bath area - with a twist.

Julie Butterworth added this to Inspirational Ideas for Dado and Picture Rails27 Jul 2018

Contain a bold designDado and picture rails have the benefit of framing areas, allowing you to choose bolder designs that might be too much across an entire wall.It’s also less expensive to cover restricted spaces, so you can splash out on your favourite design. Match below-dado walls to a leaf shade on a large-scale floral, as the designers of this room have, to create a nicely balanced feel.

Make your bath feel specialThe designers of this indulgent bathroom have highlighted the roll-top bath by laying different flooring beneath it. They’ve chosen textured pebble tiles, which are very different to the dark wood flooring that surrounds them. The contrast works to separate the bathing area and make it feel even more special, and the dark bath complements the deep brown wood that frames the pebbles.

Position carefully for impactIt’s always worth working out where to place the large images on a paper such as this before you actually hang it. You want to make sure your favourite parts of the design are given prominence when it’s in situ. Think of the other furniture and accessories, too, when working out the optimum position.Here, the paper has been teamed with calming French Grey paint to tone down the exuberance of the floral design and create a restful yet interesting space for relaxing and bathing.

Zone your tub with textured flooringZoning is a smart design trick that defines sub-spaces according to their function. This is particularly effective in a small space such as a bathroom, where it can be achieved using contrasting flooring to carve out a designated space for relaxation. This is also a great opportunity to add texture that creates a non-slip surface around the bath or shower – the pebbled texture above is a smart alternative to the bathroom’s potentially slippery wooden floor.Read expert advice on what you should know before designing a new bathroom

Be bold in the bathroomIf your taste is generally quite muted, it can be fun to be a little more adventurous in your bathroom or cloakroom. Take a style lead from the architecture of the space: for example, romantic botanical prints bursting with exotic blooms, such as palm trees and orchids, could be used to create a colonial look, and would sit particularly well with Victorian-style sanitaryware. Here, wallpaper depicting lady’s-slipper orchids is the perfect design for drawing attention to the slipper bath. In a 1960s house, on the other hand, a hint of kitsch Hawaiian foliage might work well. Or, in a grand Georgian room, you might combine a strong black and white stripe with your florals.Browse 10 more bathroom ideas for Victorian homes

Sophie Baylis added this to Bathroom Planning: What Shape Bath Should I Choose?17 Nov 2014

Slide into a slipperA slipper bath is easily identified by its extended backrest, which provides excellent head and back support. Traditionally, taps were located at the shallow end, but today they are often positioned in the middle of the bath, leaving both ends free so you can lean back and relax. Similar to the traditional roll-top, slipper baths feature a curved lip and are raised off the floor on feet.

Feature some floral notesPurple can look totally fab in the bathroom, whether on mosaic tiles, a freestanding bath or patterned wallpaper. The soft purple orchids in this wallpaper work beautifully with a pale sage green, used on the wall panelling, bringing a summery feel to this bright, light bathroom.TELL US...What did you think of Radiant Orchid?
