With older properties, many homeowners struggle with trying to stay true to the period of the property as well as decorating it with a refreshing up-to-date feel. Your bathroom doesn’t just have to appear entirely vintage and straight out of the 1920’s, nor does it need to scream glamour. 

We say, start off simple, think about what look you’d love to show off to your guests. Would you like to hide away the clutter and add more storage? Perhaps you crave for your cottage-proportioned bathroom to appear much bigger than it really is. Well, no matter how you’re hoping to transform it, read our tips below – and don’t forget to request our beautiful new brochure for more inspiration.

Freestanding Cast Iron Baths
Nothing says ‘splashing out’ quite like a stunning freestanding roll top bath. But if you’re searching for a way to update this more traditional design and make a stylish statement in your older property, then choose a bath that you can really make your own! All our cast iron baths at Heritage come primed and ready to paint – so you can unleash your creativity for a more on-trend and personalised feel. Why not embrace the pantone colour of the year – greenery?

Traditional Radiators
Traditional radiators are the perfect complement for period properties, but why stay in the period when you can update the look for added individuality? We say, create an eclectic feel which marries old and new with our classic heated towel rail design, simply updated with a splash of vibrant hot pink*. 

                                                                     
Finishing Touches
Gorgeous antique elements such as our stately Chesham Grand Mirror or a luxurious upholstered chair can create a truly elegant appearance, while tying into the period style of your home. You can also give your older property a fresh new perspective by adorning the walls with beautiful and brightly-coloured prints just like this gorgeous Nina Campbell swan wallpaper. 

Why not try some of these small design and décor changes to create a warmer and more welcoming ambience to your period home?
