When decorating a traditional bathroom both soft tones and bold colours can work well. Strong tones of browns, maroons and greens give a nice warmth to the room, but be sure the bathroom is well lit, maybe with a lavish chandelier. With the right colours, antique gold can look better than chrome. Go for curtains, never blinds. If going for a vanity unit rather than a traditional basin and pedestal, choose an oak or cherry finish; or the white Cynk vanity unit is a good look with traditional baths and toilets.
Based on your budget, the span of time you have, and the size of your bathroom and its current state, you have several options for remodeling your bathroom: Do a surface-level bathroom remodeling. This is an option when your bathroom fixtures, the knobs on the faucets and such, are still in good condition but your bathtub and/or your shower stall is looking a little shabby. When thats the case, a surface-level bathroom remodeling can give you the feel of a whole new bathroom, without the price tag. It is a great project to take on if you dont have the budget for a complete overhaul just yet. The rule of thumb to follow here is, "Cover, dont replace." Replacement adds to the time and costs of a remodel because you are paying to have what is there already removed. Covering uses the structure of what is already there and simply gives it a new face. Some of the not-so-pricey items you need to invest in when doing a surface-level bathroom remodeling include prefabricated shower units, bathtub or shower liners, bathtub refinishing, and easy-to-install wainscoting.

If several kids will use the same bathroom, a wall or half wall between the toilet and the rest of the bathroom may be a good idea. Guest bathroom - can be a three-quarter bathroom or a full bathroom.
One of the most appealing things about the traditional bathroom is clutter gives it more of a lived-in effect, thus enhancing the traditional look. Dont be afraid to put plenty of pictures on the walls - black and white family portraits in gold frames are a good look. A chest of drawers or corner table with scented candles, aromatherapy oils or flowers will really bring the room to life. As a finishing touch an old style set of weighing scales, a large framed mirror or bulky traditional radiator will give the room that cozy old-fashioned feel.
