Here at Brass Decor, we are passionate about period homes and accessories. We thought we’d show you how to create the perfect traditional (federation) style bathroom in your home. The Traditional style home holds a special place in the heart of many Australians. They are full of charm and laced with nostalgia, a timeless aesthetic that remains a popular choice, even in modern builds.
Read on to learn more about all the elements you’ll need to create a traditional bathroom in your house.
Basin / Sink
There are plenty of options available, from inset basins and under-counter basins to consoles and pedestals. We stock a small range of bathroom basins in various styles, so give us a call and we’ll help find the perfect piece for your Heritage, Period, Art Deco, or contemporary style bathroom.
Tapware & Accessories
Traditionally, chrome is a safe choice for classic style, but antique brass and copper offer extra elegance and glamour, or for a modern twist, consider brushed nickel or matte black or PVD covered tapware. PVD coating (Physical Vapor Deposition coating) is a high-tech process that covers the tapware to provide high-performance durability – extending the life of your accessories. Also, try to match your door hardware to the taps as well to create a cohesive space.
Modern Traditional style toilets come with new technology and are available in various configurations such as the back-to-wall suite, wall-faced pan, or even wall-hung models.
Choose a Waterwise option if possible.
It’s hard to go past black and white chequered tiles in a traditional bathroom setting, but wooden floorboards are also an excellent choice.
Subtle Greys and soft hues
Soft, muted greys and colours imbue a classic, timeless feel to traditional bathrooms. They create an elegant, calming environment to help you soak the stresses of the day away.
Good, functional lighting in a bathroom is imperative for conducting your ablutions in a well-lit environment. It’s also essential to create ambience in the bathroom, and lighting is one of the best ways to do that. Consider using brighter lights in traditional style fixtures around the mirror and add mood lighting closer to the bath – or take advantage of a dimmer switch.
