My house has two vintage bathrooms with claw foot tubs – one with a shower, one without. Although spa-like bathrooms are favored for their modern conveniences, I’ll always have a soft spot for an old-fashioned bathroom.
A charming farmhouse style bathroom has a built-in medicine chest, shiplap walls, and a rustic wood vanity. I even like the little soap dish in this cute bathroom.
One of my childhood friends had a tiny bathroom similar to this one. Her family called it the necessary room. I thought it was the cutest bathroom ever!
Vintage bathrooms often show a claw foot tub in the middle of the room, as opposed to against the wall. An ornate mirror and chandelier give the room an elegant aura.
One thing a lot of vintage bathrooms have in common is that part of the plumbing is exposed. Often times, it’s part of the bathroom’s beauty and charm.
An old-style bathroom in an arts and crafts home features green subway tile on the wall and a checkerboard floor. Lead glass windows add a special touch.
Reclaimed features like old windows are used in this vintage bathroom with a pretty claw foot tub. Wide plank wood floors add warmth richness to the space.
What type of bathroom person are you – vintage or modern?
