Washstand – A classic washstand can elevate a plain sink into something more interesting while adding a sense of space. In this smart powder room, it works perfectly with the vintage-style faucets, checkerboard floor tile and subway wall tile. A hexagonal mirror and armed wall lamps with shades also add a traditional touch.
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.

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materials in Houzz user jons112’s guest bathroom certainly weren’t his style, but the wood subfloor underneath the outdated tile posed a much greater problem: years of water damage from damaged cast iron plumbing.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.
One of the many things I love about this bathroom is how well the light fixtures coordinate with the double-sink vanity. The overall effect gives it an elegant vintage modern look. These square bowl sinks can make a tight counter seem larger because they are clear. Although these bowl sinks don’t allow for much counter space, the medicine cabinets and drawers underneath provide plenty of space to keep things close at hand.
Fountain – An elegant, vintage fountain brings the outdoors inside in a very different way than the previous sink. The copper verdigris in this photo honors the grand gardens of a different era. Depending on the age of your fountain, make sure to check for cracks and leaks that might need repairing before installation.
