8 totally traditional bathroom furniture ideas

Posted by Ruth Foster in Inspiration | 1 month ago 6 min read

If you prefer timeless, traditional design when it comes to the style of your bathroom storage, we’ve got all the inspiration you need, right here.

If you’ve found yourself reading this article, chances are you’re looking to create or, at the very least, accessorise a traditional style bathroom. So, why choose traditional bathroom furniture?

Well, first off, the beauty of traditional bathroom furniture (and traditional bathroom suites in general) is that it never goes out of fashion. No matter how long it is until your next bathroom refresh, the look is timeless. And this timeless design can easily complement various bathroom styles, whether it's rustic farmhouse, Victorian vintage, or even an eclectic mix (where contemporary and traditional combine). Traditional pieces often feature elegant details, such as intricate panels, ornate handles and rich finishes, adding a touch of sophistication to your space.

What’s more, traditional furniture brings warmth and character to your bathroom, creating a cosy and inviting atmosphere. Whether it's a beautifully crafted vanity unit, an intricately designed mirror frame, or a charming storage cabinet, traditional pieces can elevate the look of your bathroom and make it feel more like a retreat.

Feeling inspired? Let’s take a look at 8 ways you can introduce traditional bathroom furniture into your space.

1. Simple and sophisticated Shaker style

For a subtle yet sophisticated style, look no further than the Camberley furniture range from The Bath Co. Designed in a Shaker style, with an emphasis on craftsmanship, functionality and simplicity, you’ll find a variety of vanity units, in all shapes and sizes (including small cloakroom and corner units) to suit your exact needs.

With matching bath panels, toilet seats, back to wall toilet units, washstands and mirror cabinets, you can easily create a cohesive look throughout your bathroom.

Available in satin grey or matt white, all items are made from water-resistant engineered wood for added durability, meaning they’re nice and easy to maintain.

2. Rustic luxury

Whether you’re going for that quintessential farmhouse look or simply seeking to add a luxurious new touch to your bathroom, the Dalston furniture range from The Bath Co. is a great option.

Featuring a genuine marble countertop (in a choice of either white or black) and a refined undercounter sink, each vanity unit comes complete with a rustic wood finish, giving it a weathered and pre-loved appearance. Choose a matching mirror to complete this deluxe look.

3. Colourful and eclectic

An eclectic bathroom style (a look we’ve termed “Modern Vintage”) is fast becoming very popular among UK homeowners. By blending both contemporary and traditional items (like a modern freestanding bath and traditional bathroom furniture), you can create a bathroom design that is all your own.

In this eclectic style bathroom, we’ve kept things light, bright and colourful, with the exciting Ascot furniture range from The Bath Co. Available in graphite grey, pink, green and indigo, there’s a colour to suit all tastes.

The beautiful vanity units come complete with an ornate ceramic basin and line cut detail on the sides, while colour-matched back to wall toilet units make it easy to accessorise.

4. Classically-inspired

Exquisitely designed, confidently chic and steeped in classical allure, the Burghley bathroom furniture collection stands as an exclusive offering from The Bath Co. Revel in the array of breathtaking vanity units, each adorned with an authentic marble countertop (in a choice of black or white) and a classic under-counter basin. And, what’s more, you’ll discover ample storage space for all your needs in the soft close drawers beneath.

Infused with vintage charm and crafted from premium materials, this sophisticated furniture range promises to infuse your bathroom with a lavish touch of opulence. Why not complement with a simple monochrome colour scheme, plus half-height wall panels?

5. A shade for all seasons

Whether you’re looking to be the envy of your friends, with a gorgeous green bathroom or banishing the boring with a beautiful blue bathroom, there’s one traditional bathroom furniture range you won’t want to miss out on.

Exclusively from The Bath Co., the Aylesford traditional bathroom furniture range is ideal for those looking to complement a chosen colour palette. Available in Nordic green, mineral blue, linen white, pebble grey and dark grey, you’ll discover a variety of vanity units to suit your space. Starting at just 575mm wide for smaller spaces, why not transform your shared bathroom with a 1200mm wide double vanity unit?

With colour-coordinated back to wall toilet units, optimise space and make a bold style statement with this stunning furniture range.

6. Bring the wow-factor with a washstand

For traditional style bathrooms, a washstand offers a charming and more authentic alternative to the common vanity unit. Providing a more open and airy feel to your bathroom space, washstands, like this one from the Camberley traditional furniture range below, feature elegant designs, like exposed legs and shelving, adding a touch of sophistication. With an exposed design, they are ideal for smaller or minimalist settings.

7. Wall hung wonder

If you’re looking to sort out storage and make your small bathroom appear bigger, there are some neat tips and tricks you can employ. Choosing small bathroom furniture is a good place to start, but, if you really want to maximise space, why not consider a wall hung vanity unit?

Take this beautiful sapphire blue basin unit from the Beaumont traditional bathroom furniture range, for example. Featuring a durable blue woodgrain finish, this Victorian-inspired vanity unit comes complete with a high quality ceramic basin.

While it’s undeniably stylish, the wall hung design and compact size make it highly practical too, especially for bathrooms where space comes at a premium.

8. Open and organic

As more of us seek to infuse our spaces with natural warmth, the allure of wood designs grows stronger. Enter the Marlow range by The Bath Co., offering a delightful array of traditional storage units to embrace this organic look.

Featuring an oak effect worktop and open space below, the washstand (which comes in 2 different sizes) is filled with rustic charm. Choose between single or twin countertop basins to achieve the subtle ambience of a tranquil home spa. Pairing seamlessly with the vanity unit is a matching storage unit boasting glass-fronted doors, perfect for showcasing cherished items and adding personal flair to your space.

To complete your traditional rustic sanctuary, accessorise with towels and wicker storage boxes from our Accents collection. With these finishing touches, your perfect rustic bathroom awaits.
