Choosing a bathroom suite can seem a little overwhelming at first. With so many different designs and styles available, it’s difficult to know what’s going to work in your space.
This guide will help you to get started, and give you a quick overview of the different ranges of bathroom suites we have at VictoriaPlum.com, hopefully making it a bit easier for you to find the perfect bathroom for your home.
Contemporary or traditional?
Two of our most popular styles are contemporary and traditional. Choosing a style you want is the best way to begin.
Traditional bathrooms embody classic style, evoking the look of an Edwardian or Victorian bathroom. You can find luxurious roll top baths, traditional high cistern toilets, and classic taps and accessories. Just remember that traditional style doesn’t mean old-fashioned; you can still enjoy the modern functionality of rainforest shower heads and mixer taps even with a traditional look.
Contemporary bathrooms are all about the latest styles and designs, with clean lines and strong shapes. There are lots of different designs within this category, and this is the style that will suit most modern homes. Contemporary bathrooms also tend to have a wider range of size options, so may be a better choice for cloakrooms or ensuites.
With its clean lines and simple shapes, the Brent bathroom suite is a good example of a contemporary style
Ensuite or family bathroom?
The size of your bathroom also affects which suites might work best, as some are more space-efficient than others. If you’re fitting out a large bathroom, you probably have the widest choice, but you’ll still want to think about what would look best – a tiny cloakroom basin would obviously look a bit odd in a large family bathroom.
There are lots of options for smaller bathrooms too, whether you are designing an ensuite, cloakroom, or just have limited space. You can choose a smaller version of some of the contemporary or traditional designs, as well as choose integrated storage options to make the most of your space.
Regency – Classic and elegant with lots of options for high level or low level cistern toilets, as well as pedestal basins with two tap holes, and a semi-recessed basin with a single hole for a mixer tap.
The Regency basin comes complete with 2 tap holes for more traditional pillar taps
Camberley – Classic Edwardian style with luxurious options for freestanding baths and high cistern toilets, as well as lots of matching accessories and furniture. This range also includes smaller basin options, so could be perfect for a small bathroom or an ensuite.
The Camberley gives you some great options to take your traditional bathroom design that step further
Winchester – Beautiful style and a quality feel, this range is perfect for creating a modern bathroom with a traditional look. There are stunning slipper baths, close coupled toilets, and stylish shower heads, as well as matching accessories to really create a complete look.

Bathroom suite bundles
You can, of course, buy all the items that make up your bathroom suite separately, however it is always a good idea to purchase your toilet and basin from the same range, to ensure a coordinated style. If you are simply looking to purchase the pair together, why not browse our toilet and basin suites?
One great way you can save both time and money is by purchasing a bathroom suite bundle. If you know that you want a certain type of bath or shower enclosure you can choose from our package deals by clicking on one of the links below:
Many of our bathroom suite bundles also include taps and other elements. These have been specifically chosen by our in-house stylists to complement the suite perfectly, saving you plenty of time and effort.
