Victorian style typically features opulent regality and majestic luxury. Even though it focuses on intricate details and elegance, it manages to create a space where comfort and functionality are paramount. In fact, after ten years, a Victorian bathroom is guaranteed to still look as good as the day it was first fixed.
One of the greatest approaches today is combining both contemporary and Victorian styles in one bathroom. If you don’t want to miss out on electronic gadgets and sleek items of the contemporary world, while still keeping the charm and warmth of the Victorian style, then this approach is ideal for you.
In order to mix best of both styles subtly, you should define specific parts with specific styles. For example, you could go for a Victorian pedestal sink and a classic porcelain claw-footed tub alongside a sleek walk-in shower with LED tiny lights and waterfall taps. As for fabrics, opt for sweeping curtains with tie backs and tassels instead of the 21st century modern blinds. This approach will pretty much create a magnificent atmosphere.
Victorian items are either reproductions of the period or authentic pieces which could be found at estate auctions. Go for at least one authentic piece and have it re-finished to capture the true essence of Victorian era. Those items vary from tufted stools and miniature trinkets to gold-finished mirror frames and artistically carved dressing tables.
Pedestal sinks are commonly used in Victorian bathrooms. They may come with corrugated pedestals or smooth ones and they are perfect space savers as they are typically attached directly to the wall. Go for curved luminescent brass faucet head to complete the great look of this masterpiece.
When it comes to Victorian tile-work, choose small hexagonal, penny, or subway tiles. The colors usually are confined to lighter shades such as blues, yellows, and pinks that create an airy feel.
