Despite modern-day technology and design, many consumers still look back in time for style ideas that they can bring into the present. Victorian style bathrooms may take their inspiration from 100 years ago but are an enduring design feature in the modern home that shows no sign of decreasing in popularity. A sure-fire way of adding class and elegance; the following reasons are why Victorian-look bathrooms never go out of fashion:


It is natural to be fascinated with a time in our social history when most homes had an outside toilet and coped without hot running water making the style of bathrooms in existence then even more fascinating – the irony of course being that Victorian bathrooms are even more popular now than they were then!

Victorian Style Tiles

Victorian style tiles are simply a statement in themselves that can be incorporated into any size, layout and colour scheme of bathroom to give a visually stunning and opulent feel.

Timeless Quality Suites

The basic Victorian bathroom suite had no sign of the modern smart technology we can incorporate into our bathrooms today but what it did have was timeless elegance that will never fade. Think claw footed ceramic baths, square pedestals and statement taps, traditional gold pull chains, ornate wall brackets and stylish toilet handles, and you can see why these pieces will never go out of fashion.

Freestanding Baths

Nothing expresses ornate like a free-standing bath that will instantly create a luxurious focal point to any bathroom. Choose from a traditional slipper design, or update with a coloured tub. Clawed feet are optional but will ensure your bath tub is raised off the ground and complete the Victorian look!

Cast Iron Heating

Incorporating a free-standing traditional style cast iron radiator will immediately add a classic look and style statement to any bathroom. Update the Victorian look by choosing a glossy black finish for a high-end modern twist.

Don’t Forget Victorian Inspired Accessories

From chic bathroom signs, artisan toilet holders, statement towel rails to carbolic soap (if you want to be truly authentic!) Victorian inspired accessories will look fabulous in any vintage or modern bathroom. Classic soap dispensers, soap dishes, toothbrush holders, natural bristle toilet brushes, shaving kits, ceramic light pulls and roller towels and pitchers – the possibilities are endless to give a delightful vintage feel in 2019 and beyond!
