Mostly A = Traditional style

Traditional style bathroom

Look for traditional bathroom suites that come with features such as pull handle flushes and bevelled edges. Use wood to break up the design, but make sure any bathroom furniture items you choose are sympathetic, with colours such as satin grey adding to the vintage style.

Mostly B = Contemporary style

Contemporary style bathroom

Seek out a contemporary bathroom suite with clean lines and minimal detailing. Complement with a frameless or black framed shower enclosure, and stick to a monochrome colour palette with clean, white tiles. And, if you really want to be "cutting edge", choose the most up-to-date digital or smart showers.

Mostly C = Modern style

Modern style bathroom

Featuring shapes and designs that have stood the test of time, modern style represents a particular era of interior design roughly from the 1920s to the 1950s. Although you may not realise it, this style is iconic and gives you the perfect middle ground between traditional and contemporary.

Geometric shapes and warm walnut wood both help to bring this style to life. A shower enclosure or shower bath can easily be added to create a fun and functional family bathroom.

Mostly D = Country style

Country style bathroom

Wooden elements such as toilet seats and bathroom furniture, along with stone effect tiles, will help to achieve that rustic look. And of course, no peaceful country style bathroom would be complete without a large freestanding bath to wallow in at the end of a hard day. No matter where you live, country living can be yours.
