Why Choose Chrome?

Colours synonymous of historical eras have remained the forefront of traditional bathroom design, ranging from captivating royal Edwardian blues, to mellow tones of Medici off-whites, and often accessorized with Gold, Nickel, and of course, classic Chrome. Regularly used in traditional bathroom design thanks to its understated elegance, Chrome can execute renowned timeless design. At Burlington, we pride ourselves in capturing the beauty of periodic bathrooms and as such, have devised a guide on how to use Chrome to create wondrous traditional bathroom design.

Intricate Chrome: Brassware and Bathroom Accessories 

Beginning with the finer features of Chrome in the bathroom, brassware is an excellent place to begin. Although Chrome brassware may be considered standard across many bathrooms, it is the compelling design of our brassware combined with Chrome finish that creates a historic statement piece for exceptional traditional bathroom design. For instance, our popular Claremont Basin Mixer with Click Clack Waste and optional quarter turn features exudes vast quantities of opulence associated with the Victorian era. Thus, this Victorian style basin tap is a simple, effective way of introducing Chrome to intricate details for an understated timeless bathroom look.
Moreover, sparsely integrating subtle Chrome luxuries into the bathroom by opting for Chrome traditional bathroom accessories, including Chrome WC Roll Holder, Tumbler Holder and Soap Dispenser can create alluring detail for magnificent traditional bathroom design.

Moderate Chrome: Washstands

The idea of bathroom washstands is one that date back to the 16th Century, with designs flourishing over the last 200 years. The recognition for personal hygeine saw wooden washstands transformed into beautiful bathroom pieces, with particular focus to aesthetics becoming prominent in Victorian and Edwardian eras. As such, Burlington has imitated the timeless characteristics that have paved the way for traditional glamour into a selection of styles and sizes, including the Edwardian 56cm basin with Chrome towel rail to bring a perfect, subtle complement of Chrome.
