Slipper tub – Free-standing bathtubs come in all shapes and sizes these days, but the slipper version offers a special kind of indulgence. Originally a Victorian design, it features a higher back at one end, which provides support as well as privacy when you sink into the bubbles, wallow and relax. This luxe room ups the traditional look further with a wall of oil paintings, a Victorian-style towel rail and a gleaming wooden floor. I love the floor-length curtains too.
Sinks are the most used fixture in any bathroom. The average person visits the bathroom six to eight times a day, brushes their teeth twice a day, and washes their hands before and after meals. That adds up to a lot of time at a sink. In bathrooms used by more than one person at a time—family baths and master baths—double sinks streamline the process of getting ready for the day.
Two-piece toilet – The modern toilet trend may be for hidden or boxed-in tanks, but a two-piece toilet can look homey and has something of a country-home air about it. A black toilet seat always looks smart and grounds an all-white scheme. And who knew large marbled floor tiles could work so well?
Log – Take your bathroom back to nature with a wooden sink basin or vessel. Whether you have a found log custom-crafted into a sink, or a ready-made version from a store, make sure it has a polyurethane clear coat for durability. A substantial piece of wood like this can be very heavy — make sure it’s adequately supported on both the wall and floor.
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materials in Houzz user jons112’s guest bathroom certainly weren’t his style, but the wood subfloor underneath the outdated tile posed a much greater problem: years of water damage from damaged cast iron plumbing.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.
There’s no need to limit your sink to what’s on store shelves. Repurposing any number of vessels into a sink — whether new or vintage — will show off your personal style with little effort. From old metal buckets to massive shells to rain barrels — if it can hold water, it can be your next sink. Still doubtful?
