The Edwardian bathroom from scratch
Believe it or not, this bathroom started life as an outhouse full of spiders. Now it has the period features that make it feel part of this Edwardian house – and the mod cons that make it cosy enough for bath time.

We got the bathroom suite from an architectural salvage yard and it formed the basis of the room. The window was a find on ebay and it brings real character while giving the privacy needed for a ground floor bathroom.

The original floorboards were in reasonable condition, so they were sanded and varnished and finished off with a small rug.

We created the Edwardian look on the walls with a modern solution. The wood or plaster moulding used in Edwardian homes would have been extortionate, so we found a tough textured wallpaper that gives the same look and feel at a fraction of the price- and is better protected from the steam of the smallest room.

The enamel bath was crackle-glazed with gold to give an aged effect and we fitted candle sconces to the walls to make it the perfect place to relax at bathtime.
