Period style reproduction

If your house, hotel or church is Georgian, Victorian, or Edwardian, you can choose to take the route of trying to replicate a period bathroom as closely as possible to the architectural style of your project. To help you achieve this Versatile can supply you with a wide range of period sanitryware and bathroom furniture such as the Drummonds range.

Contemporary bathroom design in a traditional setting.

Although many projects make every effort to restore a period house true to its style and conserve as many features as possible, sometimes it is not aesthetically correct to put in a traditional style bathroom. Indeed, in many cases it creates a “wow “factor to install a modern bathroom within a period setting. Our in house interior architects can help you choose the very latest style and modern appliances to compliment your period building.
