Vintage Bath Makeover


The vintage bath design of the early 1900s has never been more popular. Transform your bathroom into the latest vintage bath design! In the early 1900s, the old one per household five-by-eight vintage bath was replaced with the latest in bathroom invention and design. Today, the vintage bath style with vintage bath fixtures has never been more popular. Inspirational bathroom transformations were showcased in a contest sponsored by American Standard. A vintage bath makeover was one of the winning projects in their contest, called “America’s Ugliest Bathrooms: Solved.” 


Trent Ketchum of the Illinois-based remodeling company Fulford Homes was a contest winner for his remodeling work, shown above. Ketchum’s updates included decorating with glossy subway tiles and a new clawfoot tub in this formerly cramped and drab master bath.


Vintage Bathroom Fixtures

The renovation job entailed gutting a tiny bathroom covered in outdated yellow wall tiles, and utilizing an 8' by 7'6" space from an adjacent seating area. to create an expansive and beautiful room with a vintage style freestanding bath tub, walk-in shower, and vanity seating area with storage.

More Design Ideas

Small bathrooms conform to the new vintage style easily due to the space-saving pedestal sink design. Remodeling these bathrooms is largely a matter space and cost. Bathroom fixtures can be elaborate in number and quality, often the selection is limited only by one's purse. Today's internet is your best resource for bathroom designs and planning tools. With free online tools you can change the floor plans, change the colors of the products, add a whirlpool, or paint the walls.Consider wall sconces or a clean line track light system if you have a freestanding sink with no vanity. An idea when remodeling a small bath is to remove the full size bathtub and replace it with a standing shower enclosure. Bath fixtures fit into less space than most people think. Into 25 square feet, you can squeeze a complete – if cramped – shower bathroom which would keep the cost of adding an extra bathroom low.
