Bathroom Case Study - Our Northumberland Nest

Our Northumberland Nest Case Study
When it comes to modernising country homes, transitional styling can help you stay true to the characteristics of the house without the interior becoming dated. Transitional design is a marriage between modern and traditional elements. When combining the two styles in one area, you achieve a cohesive finish, offering a timeless design. The components to consider when creating a transitional space include furniture, finishes, fabrics and materials.

Within this bathroom, there is a pure mix of modern and traditional styled products. The freestanding bath, double vanity unit, and close coupled toilet are all traditionally designed. However, the accompanying brassware offers an injection of modern style. The clean design of both the bath shower mixer and the basin mixers helps modernise the bath and vanity area. The two abstract shaped mirrors above the vanity area are also highly modern.

As well as the design of the products offering a mixture of styles, the finishes and materials follow suit. Although you often find this product in contemporary bathrooms, the gloss finish of the white metro tiles creates a traditional feel around the bath and vanity. In comparison to this gloss finish, the hexagonal marble floor tiles offer a more modernised quality. Looking again at the bath area, the white matt finish of the bath enhances its traditional features further. In comparison, the matt black finish of the bath shower mixer adds to the modern style of the product. The two basin mixer taps, the bath waste and the basin wastes are also in a matt black finish.

The final traditional element is the room setting itself, with the white round coving of the room balancing out the soft black wall colour. The dark and opulent colour palette within the bathroom also has a modern element, with warm hues introduced through the wooden bath mat and stool.
