Creating a Victorian style bathroom

For period properties and homes with rustic charm, a Victorian design scheme can be the perfect choice for the bathroom space. In fact, this design style has been growing in popularity in recent years. But what are the important considerations for creating a Victorian style bathroom? And how can you achieve the right results for your home? 

What are the important considerations for creating a Victorian style bathroom?

There are a number of important considerations to bear in mind when it comes to creating a Victorian style bathroom. These considerations include:

  • Choosing the right colour scheme
  • Choosing the right tiling
  • Choosing the right fixtures

Choosing the right colour scheme

One of the most important factors to consider is the colour scheme. While this may seem trivial compared to the fixtures themselves, defining the colour scheme can help you make the right additional design choices for your bathroom, including the tiling and fixtures. For a strong Victorian theme, you could consider deep, rich colour tones like burgundy, forest green, or navy blue. These colours are synonymous with the Victorian design style and can really help to accentuate the theme of your bathroom. For a more subtle approach, you could use neutral tones with the aforementioned colours being used to accent the space.

Choosing the right tiling

As well as the colour scheme, the tiling options are also important for Victorian themed bathrooms. You could consider black and white checkerboard tiles, or intricate mosaic patterns with floral or geometric motifs to really accentuate the Victorian theme. Alternatively, you could opt for timber effect tiles to replicate the popular hard wood floors for the era. 

Choosing the right fixtures

Finally, you will need to choose the right fixtures for a Victorian style bathroom. Victorian design often includes high levels of detail and intricacy, and it’s important to choose the fixtures that will reflect this. Clawfoot bathtubs, along with vintage style pedestal sinks, and decorative taps and handles can be highly effective for creating a Victorian style bathroom.
