Restoration & Conservation

Bathroom restoration and conservation

Versatile aims for a high level of authenticity, accurately replicating historic materials and techniques as much as possible to preserve historic buildings. Ideally using modern techniques, in a concealed manner, Versatile do not compromise the historic character of the structure’s appearance.

In the field of historic preservation and conservation, Versatile have gained significant experience over the past 34 years. Bathrooms did not come into play until the Victorian period and bathroom suites were readily available by the Edwardian times. There are two ways to approach a period bathroom installation, outlined below.

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 sanitary ware and bathroom furniture such as Drummonds bathtubs and sinks and EBAN bathroom furniture.

Versatile are exclusive distributors of Drummonds period cast iron bathtubs. All Drummonds’ baths are made from solid cast iron using the time-honored sand casting technique first used by the finest Victorian foundries. The designer also has the option of choosing the colour they want for their clients’ dream bathroom.

In addition to sanitary ware, Versatile can support your period project with a range of options including:

  • Period style heated towel radiators, particularly Zehnder Balmoral, Zehnder Buckingham & Zehnder Osbourne
  • A range of cast iron radiators encompassing a wide range of period designs such as GothicVictorian and Edwardian styles, echoing period influences and complementing traditional styles
  • An extensive range of tiles to complement the period bathroom style of your choice

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.
