1. Reimagine the Cloakroom 🖌

A sight to behold, isn't @louiseroe's 1920s period bathroom suite simply perfect? Time-honoured wallpaper, exquisite artwork and an ensemble of antiques instil glamour with a hint of intrigue into this Art Deco bathroom. Placing smooth and streamlined pieces at the heart of design, this setting draws on the Riviera basin and its toilet counterpart to enhance 1920s bathroom style in a way that demands attention. Finished with an Art Deco style tap for a refined nod towards the original, @louiseroe's Art Deco bathroom encompasses everything 1920s design stands for. Read more about @louiseroe's Art Deco bathroom transformation here.

2. Re-energise the Space💗

Laden with grandeur as far as the eye can see, isn't this an Art Deco bathroom to admire? Sit back, relax and revel in luxury from the moment you step inside with neutral hues, natural textures and the Riviera vanity unit for a subtle nod towards 1920s comfort. Echoing glamour down to the final details, including the delicate layers of the Riviera toilet, the elegant feet of the Windsor bath and the statement handles of Art Deco style taps, this Art Deco bathroom promises a timeless scheme to fall in love with time and time again.

3. Rediscover the Eras 🗝

Ever witnessed a more elegant blend of classic and contemporary? Reimagining the Art Deco bathroom, @melaniejadedesign combines the very best of the 1920s with the latest trends for an extravagant modern classic bathroom. From glorious green panels and marble floor tiles through to indulgent Art Deco style taps in Gold, @melaniejadedesign's Art Deco bathroom makes glitz and glamour look effortless. One not to be missed, bask in the impressive combination of terrazzo tiles and Riviera brassware in @melaniejadedesign's shower to reiterate style, function and luxury at every turn in this beautiful Art Deco bathroom.

4. Rethink the Cloakroom✨

Who said small spaces can't be glamorous? Create perfect harmony with herringbone tiles, decadent panels and hints of Gold for an undeniably timeless Art Deco bathroom. Perfect for compact spaces, the Riviera cloakroom basin measures only 450mm in length for a basin that's small in stature but grand in appearance. Paired with a matching Riviera back to wall or wall hung toilet, this period bathroom suite is set to impress with a look that maximises space and elegance across the cloakroom. Feeling bold? Complete your design with bright and beautiful wallpaper, like this design by Lust Home and bring it together with Art Deco style taps for a distinctive Art Deco bathroom to remember. 

5. Restore a Balance 

Has there ever been a space that inspires serenity quite like @victoria_road_restoration's Art Deco bathroom? Cited in papers by G.F. Smith as the most relaxing colour, eyes are drawn to the dark blues of the Riviera vanity unit and panelling for a blissful presence in this modern classic bathroom. This, combined with geometric floor tiles enables @victoria_road_restoration to embody 1920s bathroom style in a timeless look to last the years. From the glitz of the Windsor bath to the glamour of the Riviera vanity unit and Art Deco style taps, @victoria_road_restoration has perfected the family-friendly Art Deco bathroom for today's modern home.
