Shabby Chic. "Shabby chic", a relatively new phrase used to describe room designs, is an obscure blend of neglect and style. It is one of the most difficult bathroom designs to create, and it takes a bold decision to go for this bathroom style. It almost certainly achieves its full potential in a continental house, either a French chateau or old Spanish villa. The absolute opposite of a fitted bathroom, the shabby chic look is a mismatch of styles and products. You can even do the unexpected, like put a put a refrigerator in the corner. Nothing is expected to match and pipework and plumbing are on show rather than concealed. This style is best suited to those who have inherited a bathroom and want to update it a little rather than fork out on a brand new bathroom suite. The key to decoration is neutral tones with a few dark colors. For the walls choose a matte or flat wall paint. Pale golds and yellows work particularly well as does floral or check patterned wallpaper.

Does the finish suit your bathroom? From a style perspective, one thing to think about prior to purchasing your new bathroom cabinet is what kind of finish the unit has. It is far easier to find a bathroom cabinet that matches your existing bathroom suite rather than have to undergo a costly refurbishment simply to suit your new piece of furniture. With this in mind, cabinets with wooden finishes such as in an oak or wenge will usually complement a traditional styled bathroom while the sleek finish of a chrome or white gloss cabinet will look good with a more contemporary bathroom setting. Let the design do the talking! In addition to the type of finish you could choose, you should also consider the design of the bathroom cabinet. This can be everything from minimalist designs that will complement a compact bathroom setting to bold circular cabinets that will act as a focal centrepiece to a larger bathroom. The particular design of cabinet that you choose really dictates the kind of statement you want to make with your bathroom decor so choose wisely.

Choose units with extra storage. Possibly the main decision to make is whether the cabinet has sufficient storage. While it is true that bathroom cabinets can be chosen purely for their decorative element, the fact that they offer ample storage space should not be overlooked. Rather than cluttering your bathroom essentials around your basin, bathroom cabinets have handy internal storage space where you can easily tidy everything away. A good way of checking how much storage you would require is to take a look at the products you use every day and try to find a cabinet that will easily accommodate all of them.

Traditional. The Traditional bathroom can mean either traditional in terms of Edwardian or Victorian style, or in respect to a standard white bathroom with basic sanitary ware and bath. Here, we'll be looking at the style of bathroom design where it all started. The Edwardian bathroom. Over the past decade, with the popularity of TV shows like Changing Rooms, the trend for old-fashioned bathrooms has seen a real upsurge. A rare gem of an old slipper bath or rusty traditional faucet may be found at a scrap yard or in a skip, but thankfully manufacturers are keeping up with demand with skillfully crafted traditional bathroom products. Certain rooms only work in certain houses, so if you're living in a modern high rise apartment the traditional bathroom isn't going to work for you. If you have an old cottage or villa retreat this style of bathroom is one you should definitely consider.

There are plenty of choices of bathroom vanities like the Antique Bathroom Vanity in Antique Cherry which would make a splendid center piece and you can also buy matching accessories like the Antique Bathroom Wall Cabinet. With these decisions made you can start to expand your bathroom remodeling ideas and begin to look for old-style bathroom light fixtures like the Victorian Collection with a bronzed finish to complement your choice. When you buy a bathroom vanity unit you don't get the taps with it, but you can buy lovely bathroom basin taps which will enhance your new furniture tremendously. Lots of sites on the web stock high-quality discount bathroom faucets, which are exactly the same models you would buy locally and you really can save a fortune on all your bathroom accessories if you buy online. Window shopping on the internet is definitely the quickest hassle-free method to look for bathroom remodeling ideas.

As with the country and traditional bathrooms, cast iron baths are a must. Either a roll-top or slipper bath will do, and although you don't want holes or rust, the more dilapidated it looks the better. Even consider running sandpaper over the paint work and claw feet. It's always worth looking out for old fittings at antique shops and car boot sales. Counter top basins are highly recommended in this setting, and the look out for extremely unusual decorated designs. Place it on a washstand or run-down vanity unit. Add unique ornaments and antique framed mirrors.

Step four - Lay in the cement screed for the floor. Before the floor tiles can laid the floor must be smooth and fairly flat with a slight fall to the drainage outlet. To do this you must use sand and cement mix and it is best to add a waterproofing agent into this as well. With a level, set the floor level at the doorway. Use the top aluminum angle as the finished floor level and measure down the thickness of the tile plus 10mm for the glue. Mark right around the bathroom with a level and then screed in your sand and cement mix with a 1 to 3 degree fall to the top of the drain outlet. Take your time and get it right with the finished level as smooth as possible. When the sand cement mix has set but is not dry (you can walk on it but you it is still a bit soft) rub it over with a house brick. This will remove all the small highs and lows and check with a level as you go. Let the bathroom floor fully dry and then you should have a great surface to tile onto. Tip: the more work you put into the floor screed the easier your tiling will be.

3. Sizes of bathroom fans. Domestic bathroom extractor fans come in two sizes: 4 inch /100mm and 6 inch / 150mm. In almost every case a 4 inch bathroom extractor fan will suffice. Six inch fans need only be considered in bathrooms greater than three metres squared, or where special circumstances require a more powerful fan,...such as bathrooms with no natural ventilation or particularly cold, north facing bathrooms.

Dust anybody? Starting from the top of your bathroom, (i.e the ceiling and light fittings) use a duster to remove any cobwebs or dust that may have accumulated over the winter. A dry duster can be used on painted surfaces or you could use a little furniture polish to encourage the removal of dust. If you have a vacuum cleaner with a long attachment then this can help with venetian blinds or the top of picture rails etc. You will need to use your duster to manually remove the dust from the top of the door frame and the top of any picture frames you have. Consider the top of any bathroom cabinets or mirrors, you will need to take any items that are stored here and dust accordingly. When these items are removed, consider their use. If you don't use them or they are not visually attractive then remove them. If you find areas of dust that are stubborn then you will need to wash this down with hot water and a mild detergent. Lemon juice is a great alternative to detergent and leaves the bathroom with a fantastic fragrance. Take time to stand back and look for areas you have missed. Once you have reached the floor areas you have dusted your bathroom.

The bathroom has come along way in the past one hundred years. Once just a basic tub set in front of the living room fire and filled with buckets of water, the bathing experience is now a luxury in almost every western home. Back then, a "bathroom" was something only the wealthy and privileged could afford to have in their house. It was this trend which lead to the mass production of bathroom products. The Edwardian and Victorian styles of the time are still a popular choice today. They look exquisite in a villa or cottage bathroom, and never loose their appeal in terms of design. Today, thanks to advanced plumbing and modern technology, the bathroom may well have evolved as far as it can. With luxury steam rooms and hydrotherapy baths, it's difficult to imagine how bathrooms could get any more sophisticated. That said, the bathroom, like any room in the house, is ever changing in terms of design trends. Here we look at the five most popular styles of bathroom designs. Traditional, Country, Shabby chic, Contemporary and Fantasy.
