BRING BACK THE CLASSIC IN YOUR BATHROOM
- January 18, 2017
So many homeowners find traditional bathrooms alluring but they simply do not know how to transform their modern bathrooms into a more traditional space. Sculptural bathtubs and minimalist sinks are not the ideal style for every homeowner. Some people prefer a traditional feel, which is ideal if you live in a period home. If you are a member of the said group, Bullrun Kitchen and Bath is here to provide you with some tips on how to make your bathroom an instant classic.
- Install a Pedestal Sink
Pedestal sinks had lost their allure for about two decades, but now they are becoming a trend once more. They have a time feel with simple lines, and they are perfect for hiding the pipes. If you have a large enough bathroom, you may consider placing two pedestal sinks side by side to further heighten the traditional appeal. Add in some beveled mirrors and your bathroom is an instant classic.
- Install a Slipper Tub
The slipper tub was a Victorian favorite and having one in the bathroom can make the room reminiscent of the great Victorian Age. The slipper tub has a higher back at one end providing support and privacy as you indulge yourself in the bathroom. If the Victorian era was one of your favorite history topics, then the slipper tub is exactly what you need to transform your bathroom into a classic gem.
- Install a Claw-Foot Tub
If the slipper tub is not to your liking, do not despair, as there are several other traditional bathtubs still in the market. One of them is the claw-foot bathtub, which has been used in bathrooms for centuries. To give the tub an even more traditional feel, consider combining it with plantation shutters, a marble-topped vanity, and classic wallpaper. Finally, paint the sides of the bath a dark color for more authenticity.
