Get the traditional bathroom of your dreams with Burlington

To just say that retro or early 20th century lookalike bathroom products are popular would be an understatement of massive proportions; they have taken off like few others. Masters of this look are Burlington that has a collection that we are delighted to illustrate on our web pages. Getting a traditional bathroom look is straight forward and the first item to consider would be the bath.

The slipper bath was all the rage in the early days and this Burlington Harewood slipper bath is distinctive. With a wide range of feet for this bath you can create the look that suits you, classical, period or traditional, and each come in chrome, white or black. With a wide range of free standing or deck mounted taps, so you have a large amount of design flexibility, and the tap or overflow can be drilled to suit your particular desire.

The Burlington Regal Slimline Close Coupled Toilet Suite with Push Button may look as though it came straight from the Edwardian era, but that is where the similarity ends, using modern manufacturing methods and 21st century technology, , Burlington achieves a high level of quality and authenticity in this and every product. With eco water saving dual flush the WC is complete with pan, cistern with push button and soft closing seat

The Burlington Regal Edwardian Medium Round Basin and Washstand is a true classic and with the pairing of wall mounted basin with complementing chrome legs and towel rail, you will have a vintage touch to your bathroom. The basin can be provided with holes pre drilled to accommodate either traditional separate hot and cold taps, or with a more contemporary mono mixer if required. Again this is a 21st century wash basin with an Edwardian look that is sure to grace a traditional bathroom.

With the slipper bath as well as the wash basin we have left the choice of which taps to use as a personal choice, we have a huge selection of these at our dedicated section of taps and mixers. One which would fit the slipper bath to perfection would be the Burlington Claremont Regent Deck Mounted Bath Filler. This is a true classic and again benefits from modern technology. We offer a choice of either a quarter turn or screw down for the taps and a flow straightener for low pressure systems and aerator for high pressure.

With the Burlington range of bathroom products, you are only a few clicks away from creating a fine traditional bathroom.

Creating the perfect bathroom on a budget

It is always sensible to work to a budget, companies as well as governments’ do all the time or at least they should do! If your budget is a small one, then there is no reason why you still cannot have a classy bathroom and we illustrate a number of bathroom products that will help you to achieve this.

The Vitra Milton Close Coupled WC is a perfect example of installing a close coupled unit that has continental styling and it is one that will keep you well inside your budget. Vitra have produced a ceramic white and compact unit that is an example of the efficient use of space within the bathroom. The design of the WC means that it requires less water to flush than we see in conventional toilets, saving precious water and this also means that your metered water bill will be smaller. The flush button is conveniently placed on top of the cistern for ease of access.
