Wm Morris Arts & Crafts Movement painted bathroom 2 door vanity unit & wall mirror & bath panels

We put together some of our existing pieces to design a new Morris style bathroom. This photo & those below will give you some more ideas for producing a new bathroom in the Morris style.

The 2 door vanity unit is painted a deep Morris blue. It has 1 interior shelf & a removable back (so your installer can cut it around pipework neatly). The door have arched panels with Morris / Webb style stained glass window design - you can change the figure in the design if you like. The worktop can be made from marble or granite, Corian, glass, wood, etc. It is made to order, and therefore you can specify the size & finish(es) you want. We would usually recommended a small upstand at the back of the worktop to prevent splashes on the wall; this could be the same material as the worktop or Morris style tiles. A towel rail or hook could be fitted to the side of the vanity unit.

Shown above the vanity unit is a large matching mirror frame. This is painted with the 'Vine' border from the Kelmscott Chaucer, in matching colours to the vanity unit. This same design mirror frame could also be supplied as a 2 door wall mirror unit, with the same frame design, giving you storage & the practicality of a large mirror. The nice thing about large mirrors is they bounce light around the bathroom & make it feel visually bigger.

To complete the bathroom look we've shown matching bath panels. These are painted the same deep blue as the Vanity & Mirror, with Morris design panels. You could also have a small upstand running around the bath aginst the wall as well. An oak floor would be very Morris & show off the colour designs really well, but a tiled floor may be more practical. Add in a few extra touches such as painted WC seat, some Morris style tiles & you have a great looking Morris style bathroom. These are the elements that make it a Morris style bathroom; not the taps, WC, shower, etc.

Above are shown some alternate colour versions of the vanity unit & wall mirror. They can be made in a natural wood finish or many painted finishes, from off white to dark base colour. This gives you the flexibility to match fabric or wallpaper or tiles for a really co-ordinated look.
