Loving a fireplace in a bathroom?

Keep the wooden beams, panels or floor enhancing the traditional impact.
Wood panelling on the walls, or beams on the wall or ceiling add to the historical feel, and create architectural texture. Beams are often visible when going into the eaves to create extra space ie a loft conversion or using the space in a sloping roof.

There is nothing like a traditional bath with claw feet to give you that luxurious period feel, with furniture adding the harmonious impact, along with elegant period taps and a shower, a basin and WCs.

However, if the floor is not in a good condition or you want a walk-in flat level shower a tiled floor is essential. Soak can offer a selection of wood-effect tiles from Valentino-Piemme if this is still your preference.
You can select from neutral tiles, make a feature with patterned tiles or use mosaics to achieve the look you require. A traditional style bath always helps to project a period look, but you can still have a mirror cabinet with the all-essential shaver / toothbrush socket to keep your luxury bathroom clutter-free.
Soak in Style can create a traditional period bathroom that complements your home, either using traditional style products, or the Soak traditional with a twist bathroom that is very popular with our clients.
