A Victorian-themed bathroom can be homey as it welcomes you a back to a bygone romantic era. Antique colour choices, ornate accessories and interesting patterns are all things to consider when collecting items for your bathroom. Second-hand stores are full of period pieces, and allow you the advantage of recycling as you decorate.
In many bathrooms, especially small ones, the shower curtain is the largest feature. Using this to emphasis your Victorian theme can be effective. Find a shower curtain with a Victorian pattern. Curtains with lacey patterns or faux upholstery designs work well. Match it to the colour scheme you've chosen.
Soap dispensers and dishes, toothbrush cups and tissue holders can all be adapted to the Victorian theme. Gold, silver or other ornate metal designs work perfectly. Even ceramic accessories can fit the theme, especially if they have painted designs on them reminiscent of fine china tea sets.
Hanging towels can also help along the Victorian theme. Choose period-suitable colours such as deep red, gold or rich green. Matching washcloths can also be used. Hand towels with gold braid or fringe are also reminiscent of the era, as are embroidered floral designs or monograms on the towels.
Bathroom sink and bathtub fixtures can be replaced with era-specific, ornate pieces. Brass or gold tub taps and showerheads can add an authentic feeling. Sink fixtures can be very ornate, with designs ranging from geometric to floral. These small changes will add an authentic feel to your Victorian decor.
Victorian decor generally meant a lot of accessories and knick-knacks, even to the point of crowding. This means that you can incorporate a number of decorative accessories into your bathroom without worrying about going overboard. Vases, silk flower arrangements, candleholders and ornamental animal statues would all be acceptable. Remember that a bathroom can be very humid, so choose items that will not rust or be damaged by a moist environment.
