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.

Vileroy & Boch have over 250 years of inventiveness and foresight as so you would rightly expect them to know a thing or two about producing a bath that will relax.

A comfortable 200 litre capacity the exclusive Villeroy & Boch is manufactured with Quaryl which gives a smooth pleasant feel, but nonetheless a vital non slip surface.

Should the bath be scratched at any time the surface can be easily restored by polishing. Users will find that this bath has a larger internal bathing space than a conventional bath and because it does not have feet, the depth is also greater.

For many the Edwardian and Victorian era was one of elegance and the last bath we feature displays all of that. The Burlington Emperor Slipper Bath is pure and elegant, the Emperor bath can be described as fit for a King; this bath is crafted into an exquisite slipper shape that provides the user with a luxurious soak. The capacity of this slipper bath is generous and the 242 litres will ensure that you enjoy a warm soak within this curvaceous bath, the shape also gives plenty of back support for your added comfort.

We have always had a good selection of Victorian style roll top baths and with the addition of some exciting new products from the Burlington range, we feel sure that your home will not be outdone by Downton Abbey!

Let us start by suggesting a look at the Burlington Harewood slipper bath, the distinctive feet can be supplied in chrome, white or black. Add to that is the design which will accommodate free standing or deck mounted taps; we illustrate a wide selection at the Burlington pages.

The basin is the most important part of your bathroom and amongst the many options the Burlington Regal Victorian Large Basin and Pedestal will be admired by all that see it. You can chose from a one, two or three tap hole version to suit the taps of your choice. It may look mid twentieth century, but it is modern and very functional. The Burlington Regal will not take up too much space, but it does make a huge statement.

Complete the bathroom with the Burlington High Level WC and the Downton effect is getting that step closer.
