The Edwardian Style is a style named after King Edward VII who reigned from 1901 to 1910, and the term Federation coincided with Australia becoming a nation of its own in 1901. The Federation style is the Australian version of the Edwardian, but differs by using Australian motifs.
The Edwardian period replaced the dark and cluttered Victorian era and replaced it with something lighter and cheerful, using Georgian, Medieval and Tudor elements. If translated into the modern era, it will look like a modern Hamptons bathroom. Like Hampton style bathrooms, the Edwardian bathroom design includes the following:
To get a historically accurate bathroom and still maintain some modernism, we recommend a cistern style toilet. The tank is elevated high above the bowl and connected by a thin metal pipe.
The form of Edwardian bathroom fixtures follows the architecture and overall design of the time, emphasizing light colours and open spaces. Simple porcelain fixtures offer a clean elegance, which can be accessorised by using decorative wall tiles, an elegant rug, stylish window panes, cloth curtains or floral wallpaper.
Most Federation bathroom vanity units are made of wood, such as cedar, mahogany, or oak. A pedestal hand basin atop a tall, slender base is often considered a vintage look.
