One of the most appealing things about the traditional bathroom is clutter gives it more of a lived-in effect thus enhancing the traditional look. Don't be afraid to put plenty of pictures on the walls - black and white family portraits in gold frames are a good look. A chest of drawers or corner table with scented candles aromatherapy oils or flowers will really bring the room to life. As a finishing touch an old style set of weighing scales a large framed mirror or bulky traditional radiator will give the room that cozy old-fashioned feel.
Materials. Look for bathroom basins made from quality materials. You don't want anything that will be easily damaged. Scratches can make it look old and dingy so get something that is highly resistant to scratching. This will keep it looking like new for years to come and you will appreciate the way it prolongs the value of your investment.
