05 Mar Best Georgian bathroom design and suppliers
Whilst Georgian bathrooms didn’t exist in any form that we understand today. At Etons of Bath, we are nevertheless looking to create bathrooms within Georgian properties that sit well within their Georgian interior design as well as meeting with our 21st century expectations of luxurious bathing. For the most part we look to evoke an elegant and classic feel in our Georgian bathroom design.
From a budget perspective we believe that you shouldn’t scrimp on your Georgian bathroom design. If you want your taps and shower to last then it is important that you invest in the best you can afford which will pay dividends in the long run. We use a range of high quality suppliers that offer stylish products that work really well within Georgian and Regency properties.
Here’s my top recommendations, suppliers and tips to help you with Georgian Bathroom design:
Samuel Heath’s taps, showers and accessories including door furniture are a natural fit for Georgian bathroom design. Whilst they have some contemporary ranges their products are in the most part classic in design. We love the quality too. All made from solid brass their products are manufactured from start to finish in their Birmingham factory. The finish achieved is second to none and results from no less than 34 plating and polishing processes per item. They hold large numbers of stock items but can also undertake special commissions and bespoke finishes.
Although Mandarin Stone was founded by mere chance, it has since developed as one of the UK’s leaders in the natural stone and porcelain industry. At Latham Interiors we love their range of stone bathware as well as their tiles. It means we can co-ordinate a vanity unit top, with a deck mounted stone basin for a really classical look.
Fired Earth have a wonderful range of decorative tiles. Pretty mosaics with a classic feel, tiles that evoke the Victorian era perfect for properties of that age and ceramic tiles that look and, almost, feel like wooden floorboards. It enables us to create a unique Georgian bathroom design for every client. They also have their paint range and a number of sanitaryware and brassware products too.
Imperial Bathrooms offer classically styled British ceramic ware at very reasonable prices. They have a wide range of products and styles, all that will sit well within a Georgian property, and their products come with a lifetime quality guarantee.
Devon & Devon
Devon & Devon offer a product range across all elements of a bathrooms design. From sanitaryware and brassware to tiling and lighting you can achieve a complete, coordinated bathroom. Their designs are inspired by European traditions and refined American design. Their products are of the highest quality but they come with a price tag to match. Where budget allows we love to work with their elegant products to deliver the most luxurious of Georgian bathroom design.
What we love about Water Monopoly is their combination of lovingly restored antique stock and their reproduction design techniques. Antique examples are sourced predominantly in France. The stock, that is constantly changing, includes vintage copper tubs, prized for their original patina, as well as ceramic baths and basins, glamorous tri-fold mirrors, swan-neck taps and canopied shower units.
Sitting side-by-side with the originals are faithful reproductions of fireclay tubs in stone and resin and cast iron baths made from recycled brake discs, all of which are manufactured in the UK. Water Monopoly enable our Georgian bathroom design to have a really authentic feel.

A relative newcomer to the UK Waterworks brings a similar offering to Devon & Devon. It hails from the US and has a catalogue that covers the full range of bathroom products. It sits at the highest end of the market and as such we can often only aspire to work with and specify their exquisite products. If your budget can accommodate their prices you will not be disappointed. Their products are not only beautiful to look at but they are superbly made and as a result highly durable.
