Renaissance At Home’s vintage baths and radiators can help you to bring a classic, timeless look to your home. In this blog, we will look at vintage bathroom ideas, including pairings of baths and radiators, to inspire you to bring the look of days-gone-by to your home
What Does The Word Vintage Mean?
The word ‘vintage’ means that an object is from a certain age, or that it reflects styles from a certain era. It is a word synonymous with high quality and looks that are still relevant, even with the passing of time, which is testimony to the classic aesthetics and high functionality of the object. Vintage objects can bring the warm glow of nostalgia and spark the imagination.
Renaissance At Home stock over fifty baths, and over 50 Cast Iron Radiators. With our pairing suggestions, we can help you to realise your vintage bathroom, with two of the most distinct eras; Georgian and Victorian.
Georgian and Victorian Vintage Bathroom Ideas
The Georgians really came into their own when defining the look and feel of a period, and our Byron Cast Iron Hurlingham Bath embodies this high-class era of lavish living. Named after the leading poet of the day, Lord Byron, this elegant Cast Iron Bath reflects the Romanticism of his writing in a classic roll top with claw-ball feet. Complete the Georgian vintage bathroom look with Renaissance At Home’s Rathmell 4 Column Cast Iron Radiator. Its symmetrical form mirrors the architecture of Georgian times, which was ornamental and restrained in character.
In Victorian times, home plumbing went through somewhat of a renaissance, and the creators of bathroom furniture and fittings celebrated this with highly ornamental radiators. To re-create a vintage bathroom from the Victorian era in your home, the Dragonfly Cast Iron Radiator would make a fitting start. With its detailed floral and dragonfly motifs, it will provide a focal point while you enjoy long soaks. Due to its highly decorative nature, antique and highlight finishes will bring the detail to the fore. Available finishes include Antiqued, Highlight Polish, Hand Burnished and Satin Polished.
And what bath might you choose to accompany it? With its deep proportions, double-ended slipper shape and Vitreous Enamel interior lining, the Galleon Cast Iron Hurlingham Bath is, perhaps, the epitome of Victorian freestanding baths.
Once you’ve chosen your bath and radiators for your vintage bathroom, they are highly customisable in terms of colours and finishes. We can provide Cast Iron Radiators in over 10,000 colours, including the entire Farrow & Ball range, as well as Little Greene, Roberson Liquid Metals, RAL, Cromadex and Carron Colour Range shades.
Take customisation one step further with one of Renaissance At Home’s specialist finishes for bath exteriors, including a range of leathers and fabrics or a hand-gilded finish in either gold or copper leaf.
If you have a specific colour that you would like any of our baths or radiators finished in, with our free on-site colour matching service, we’re able to provide accurate likeness of any colour sample that you provide.
You can view our full range of Cast Iron Baths and radiators on our website.
