In the final part of our “Get the Look” style guide, I’ll be showing you exactly which Victoria Plum products we used to create our own Refined Rustic bathroom.
If you’re joining us for the first time, why not head back to part 1 and start from the beginning? In part 1, I introduced the style, along with some broader tips on approaching this type of renovation. In part 2 I recreated the look in a small bathroom and understairs cloakroom. In part 3, I introduced you to the colours, textures and accessories that make this look work.
Traditional products for a classic look
With many period properties, people look to traditional style bathrooms to achieve a look that harmonises with an older home. The style is tried and tested, producing a timeless look that never goes out of fashion.
Baths and ceramics with vintage elements will allow weathered wooden beams and rough stone walls to take centre stage. Whilst furniture in sympathetic wood finishes, along with more natural-looking floors and walls, will blend seamlessly with your décor.
When creating our own Refined Rustic bathroom, we mainly chose products from The Bath Co., which you’ll find below.
Bath and tap
The Bath Co. Camberley traditional freestanding bath
A show-stopping centrepiece in any contemporary bathroom, the Camberley freestanding bath is the perfect design in which to lie back, relax and admire the fruits of your labour. Made from hardwearing acrylic and reinforced with fibreglass, it’s incredibly tough and will keep your water warmer for longer.
The curved shape (which reminds me of a flowering tulip) is traditional but not overpowering, allowing the rustic features of your bathroom to do all the talking. Why not add a bamboo bath bridge—the perfect place to store your latest book or even a cheeky glass of something bubbly and refreshing?
The Bath Co. Camberley lever bath shower mixer tap
A classic bath demands a classic tap, and the Camberley bath shower mixer tap certainly delivers when it comes to both style and quality. Complete with beautiful chrome lever handles and a ceramic style diverter, the telephone style shower and holder are great for more focused cleansing.
Shower and enclosure
The Bath Co. Camberley 8mm traditional framed offset quadrant enclosure
You’ll want to keep your rustic renovation feeling light, bright and spacious, so what better way to achieve this than with an offset quadrant shower enclosure? Featuring stylish 8mm glass that conforms to all relevant British safety standards, this enclosure comes with traditional finishing touches, like decorative top cap covers and elegant handles. Plus, with an easy clean internal coating, suitable household cleaner and a simple wipe is all that’s required to maintain its sparkle.
The Bath Co. Camberley thermostatic exposed mixer shower
Keeping with the traditional theme, we selected the stunning Camberley thermostatic exposed mixer shower from The Bath Co. Offering precise control even when wet, thanks to the intuitive lever controls, both the handset and overhead shower can be used simultaneously for an indulgent showering experience.
Vanity unit, basin and tap
The Bath Co. Camberley white floorstanding vanity unit and ceramic basin 600mm with tap
This simple yet traditional Shaker style vanity unit from The Bath Co. is the perfect way to add storage space to your rustic bathroom. With a clean white finish, there’s plenty of room for all your essentials, concealing them conveniently from view. The high quality ceramic basin is easy to clean and the whole unit comes with a matching vintage-inspired mixer tap from the same collection.
The Bath Co. Camberley close coupled toilet with wooden soft close seat white
With an elegant, traditional design, the Camberley close coupled toilet is designed to complement the freestanding bath, for a harmonious look and feel. For an authentic feel, it comes complete with a powerful 6 litre handle-operated flush and white wooden seat.
The Heating Co. Chrome heated towel rail
Whilst getting the look right is a top priority, getting the feel right is equally important. With the stylish yet understated Chrome heated towel rail, your room will feel snug and warm during those cold winter months, offering a welcoming embrace the moment you step out of your bath or shower. Made from durable mild steel, this towel heater will provide you with toasty towels for many, many years to come.
Walls and floors
Stone grey matt tiles
Adding a stone element to your Refined Rustic bathroom could be costly, however, by using stone grey matt tiles, you can bring the budget down. Thanks to the very latest high definition printing techniques, each ceramic tile comes with its own characteristics, plus a sandstone grey finish that looks perfectly authentic.
Kronostep Haystack oak SPC flooring
Another quick and easy way to introduce a more natural feel to your bathroom is to use wood-effect vinyl flooring. Our Kronostep range of flooring is so easy to install, you could do it yourself, saving time and money.
Featuring integrated silencing pads that help keep noise levels down (especially handy in a renovation), these vinyl planks come with a tough, anti-bacterial finish that is easy to clean. We chose Haystack oak which produces the look of rustic wood with none of the maintenance issues.
Forum Helios bathroom wall light
For a little extra task lighting, we chose the Helios bathroom wall light. The contemporary design fits seamlessly with the rest of our décor, whilst the LED bulb will save money in the long run.
