Traditionally, classical style basins and toilets are rather space-consuming. They tend to be grand and wide, therefore take up far too much space to be suitable for a small cloakroom design, especially if one is renovating the small space beneath the stairs.
In recent years though more and more bathroom manufacturers are designing with the small cloakroom mind, and we are now seeing more and more smaller, compact basins and toilets in a classical style which fit neatly into a small area.
We define the classical style by the intricately carved features, the ornate stepped effect which has always been popular with old generations who prefer a more refined and timeless design.
If you’re renovating under the stairs into a downstairs cloakroom suite you will obviously want it to match the hallway outside and the rest of the interior design, so if the rest of the house leans towards a classical theme designing the cloakroom in the same manner is a must.
