What is the difference between a traditional and modern bathroom suite?

Modern bathroom

The bathroom is an essential part of your home, so it’s important to carefully consider how you want the space to look, feel and function. Choosing your bathroom suite will define the overall style of the space, which is usually traditional or modern. However, you can choose to combine both elements to create a bathroom that is unique to you.

So, what exactly is the difference between a traditional and modern bathroom suite, and which is best for you?

Traditional bathroomTraditional bathroom suites

A traditional bathroom suite reflects classic design features, with softer edges and curves, as well as intricate detailing that you are less likely to find on a contemporary suite. They offer a relaxed and classic aesthetic that will complement a range of styles, especially in period homes, whilst offering the reliable functionality of modern mechanisms.

Common traditional styles include basin pedestals, freestanding slipper baths, close coupled toilets and cross-head taps. For example, our Frontline Traditional Slipper Style Freestanding Bath is a popular choice for traditional bathrooms with the classic ball, claw feet and charming curves.

Whether you’re looking to create a bathroom that matches the era your home was built in, or just want to create a luxurious bathroom that is truly timeless, we have a whole host of traditional bathroom suites and packages.

Modern bathroom suites

Crescent bathModern bathroom suites are generally more angular and contemporary in appearance. You will notice clean straight lines and seamless mechanisms that are innovative and cutting-edge. As well as looking sleek and refined, a modern bathroom suite can also fit into soft and relaxing décor, depending on how you choose to decorate the room itself.

Instead of classic pedestal basins, you will find more countertop and wall-mounted basins with unique tap designs such as mixer and waterfall taps. Freestanding baths remain popular within a modern bathroom and you will also find shower baths and corner baths such as our Premier Crescent Corner Bath.

We have a wide range of modern bathroom suites and packages available, whether you want a bath and shower combination, or maybe even a contemporary wet room, we’ve got you covered.

Choosing your bathroom suite

Before selecting the ideal suite for your bathroom, ask yourself these questions:

  • Who is the bathroom for?
  • How do you want to space to feel?
  • How do you need the bathroom to function?
  • Will the style fit in with the rest of your home décor?

Once you’ve answered these key questions, you should be able to find a bathroom suite to suit your needs and the aesthetic of your home.
