As with the country and traditional bathrooms cast iron baths are a must. Either a roll-top or slipper bath will do and although you don't want holes or rust the more dilapidated it looks the better. Even consider running sandpaper over the paint work and claw feet. It's always worth looking out for old fittings at antique shops and car boot sales.
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.
When examining modern bathroom design wall-hung furniture has to get a mention. White gloss will never go out of fashion but more recently furniture finishes such as wenge beech and maple have made a real emergence in popularity.
