One of the central themes of our Enchanted Winter bathroom is the notion of a traditional Christmas. That’s why we opted for a more traditional type of material for our show-stopping, centrepiece bath.
A metallic bath, like the one above, really is a work of art. A classic double ended slipper bath, made from luxury copper, hand-beaten by professionals and expertly finished in brushed tin. It’s a far cry from the days when the tin bath was positioned in front of the fireplace for the weekly family wash!
*Whilst we no longer stock the bath pictured above, The Bath Co. Stirling pewter lustre cast iron bath is a very similar design, with which, you'll achieve the same effect
Vanity unit and basin
Carrying on the traditional theme, we chose a luxurious vanity unit made from dark wood complete with an opulent marble basin.
The Dalston vanity unit from The Bath Co. is available with your choice of white or black marble, producing a design that wouldn’t look out of place in a cottage or rustic bathroom.
With variation in both the colour of the wood and stone, this beautiful vanity unit provides a more artisanal feel to your Enchanted Winter bathroom, whilst helping to reduce clutter. A smaller, more compact, model is available if you need to save on space.
It was French impressionist painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir who once famously said “I've been 40 years discovering that the queen of all colours was black.”. To keep with our darker, more mystical look and feel, we decided to use black taps for our bath and basin.
The Castello freestanding bath filler and basin mixer tap both feature an elegant, timeless design that fits with the traditional theme. Made using a superior matt black PVD finish, they are highly resistant to stains and scratches, for a luxury look well into the future.
*Unfortunately, we no longer stock this exact tap, however, for a similar look, why not choose the Winchester bath shower mixer and standpipe pack?
What could be more traditional than a high level cistern toilet, complete with an incredibly satisfying chain pull flush?
From the Camberley collection, this particular toilet features ornate brackets, a ceramic handle and a grey oak effect seat which complements the darker setting. If you have low ceilings, you can always cut the flush pipe down to a more manageable size.
Wood flooring is ideal for this look, however it isn’t really practical in a bathroom setting. So, we’ve come up with a great compromise. Kronostep laminate flooring perfectly replicates the appearance of wood with darker hints of chocolate brown. With an embossed texture, it is designed to look and feel authentic, whilst being incredibly easy to fit and clean.
We accessorised our Enchanted Winter bathroom with a classic Art Deco mirror, complete with bevelled edges and geometric shapes. It will certainly bring light and clarity to your darker interior.
For heat, we chose a gorgeous traditional towel rail. Floor mounted, it comes with elegant hooped pipes and plenty of space to warm those towels—perfect on a cold winter’s day.
