A typical feature of Morris style bathrooms is the large expanses of glazed tiles, in suitable colours, interspersed with highlights of decorative design tiles. The bathroom above has been tiled floor to ceiling, using Wm DeMorgan border tiles & tiled picture panels. With a tiled floor this is a modern way to treat a Morris style bathroom. The traditional bathroom suite & taps all add to the correct detail.

The 2 bathrooms above are really just variations on a theme; they follow the ideas in the top bathroom & just offer different colours & way to treat the walls. The bathroom below was tiled upto dado height with Morris tiles. While the use of dark mahogany finish bath panel & WC seat suggests traditional, & was used in some late Morris & Co. furniture, Morris himself is more associated with Oak finish.

Another bathroom treated with wall tiles & wallpaper. The wall design is Morris's Pomegranate, with a light tile matching one of the colours in the paper. The overall effect is of a light bright room. Even though the rest of the bathroom fittings are not in Morris style, the overall feel is established with his wallpaper.
