There’s a wealth of options, so start by narrowing down your choices. Panelled wall-side bath or free standing? Traditional or contemporary? Corner or standard? Double ended baths are becoming increasingly popular – with central taps to allow you to lie at either end of the tub. Roll top baths are back in a big way, but require a lot of space, and be aware that the plumbing is likely to be on show. Other popular designs include “slipper” baths, where the side is higher at one end than the other, and “boat” baths, which have the lowest part in the middle and taper towards the floor. But don’t be too swayed by fashion, choose a tub you can see yourself relaxing in, that meets your household’s needs and fits with your overall look. Remember, a bath is a big item, so do make sure the one you choose will fit through the door to be installed.
Traditional pedestal sinks are popular because all the plumbing is neatly hidden behind the stem, or how about something more fancy? If you’ve got the space, a vanity unit an encased sink is a good way to add storage and conceal plumbing. Plus, the unit can easily be refreshed and updated, possibly with just a coat of paint. Wall-hung sinks are a good option if space is minimal and have the additional advantage of being able to be placed at whatever height suits you. Just make sure your wall is strong enough to support the unit’s weight.
Most modern toilets come with the cistern attached close to the back of the pan, making them quieter and neater than the old high-cistern models. However, if you’re going for the traditional look these are still available if you shop around. If space allows, you could have the cistern concealed in the wall, but do ensure the panel covering it is accessible for maintenance. This is obviously a more expensive option because of the work involved, but you can recoup some of the cost by using a cheaper plastic cistern. If you really can’t stand the sight of plumbing you could complete the look with a wall hung toilet. These are becoming incredibly more popular with their slick, minimalist look, plus they have the added benefit of being more hygienic, as it becomes easier to clean the floor beneath.
An appropriate choice of tap fitting can transform your bathroom, so think very carefully before making your purchase. Mixers avoid the old scorch-freeze shuffle between taps when washing hands, but will look out of place in an antique-style bathroom. Polished stainless steel or chrome finishes look clean and light across the board, or a brushed finish will avoid smudges. Copper gives a lovely antique look, whilst brass gives a luxurious feel. Or, if you really want a decadent bathroom and your budget allows, you could even go for gold plated. Always check your taps fit the holes in your bath or sink before finalising your choice.
