Wainscoting – Vintage-style wallpaper paired with tongue-and-groove wainscoting gives this compact bathroom a cozy atmosphere. Also note the toilet with a high tank — a classic historic design. Swap slick modern spotlights for a decorative chandelier, like this brass number, to keep things traditional. Claw-foot tub – A rolled-edge, claw-foot bathtub is a timeless luxury. For an indulgent, traditional look, combine it with wallpaper, plantation shutters and a marble-topped vanity. Painting the sides of the bath a dark color, like this French navy, adds a period detail.
At 5 by 7 feet, the bathroom had a very small space where the sink could go. jons112 opted for a classic-looking combination of a pedestal sink and medicine cabinet, rather than a standard vanity, to save space. ”Since this is a guest bath, I believe this minimal storage will work,” he says. The bathroom’s water damage meant that jons112 had to put in a new wood subfloor and a new floating concrete floor. The yellow and brown tile was original to the home, but the colors felt out of place with the rest of the home’s look and made the space feel drab.

The original materials in Houzz user jons112’s guest bathroom certainly weren’t his style, but the wood subfloor underneath the outdated tile posed a much greater problem: years of water damage from damaged cast iron plumbing. He hired a contractor to completely gut the small bathroom and give him a blank slate. With a $9,000 budget, he turned the once-dingy yellow and brown tiled space into a classic and bright guest bathroom that still fits the style of his 1923 home.
A long light colored counter, undermount sinks and unexpected large faucets keep this bathroom fresh and contemporary. Translucent doors, gorgeous wood, and hardware mounted to the walls are great accompaniments to these matching bowl sinks. This space saving industrial double sink is an all-time houzz favorite of mine.Here the sinks protrude from one long wood wall unit, giving it a long uniform look. It’s a great contrast to the glass wall across from it.
Mop bucket – Skip the online shopping and dive into your cleaning supply closet instead. With a hole drilled into the bottom, a metal mop bucket can make a great sink. Keep the theme going and use the bucket handle or a mop handle as a towel rack in the same room.
