Who doesn’t love the timeless beauty of a traditional bathroom? This style seems to strike the perfect balance of form and function which must be why it’s a look that is continuously being recreated. To capture this classic style in your next bathroom remodel consider incorporating these 5 common elements.
A Freestanding Bathtub
We’re willing to bet a beautiful, white cast iron tub was one of the first things images that came to mind when you picture your traditional bathroom. Not only are these tubs perfect for unwinding in after a long day’s work, but they are sure look beautiful for years to come. Free-standing pedestal tubs come in a wide range of styles, but select a clawfoot tub for a truly classic look.
Pedestal or Console Sinks
Forget the commonplace vanity and opt for the clean lines of a pedestal or console sink. What these sinks lack in storage space they make up for in style. Baskets or an additional cabinet elsewhere in the bathroom will give you an attractive place to store toiletries.
Chrome or Nickel Hardware
Polished hardware reflect light and act like jewelry in a traditional bathroom. Select faucets with graceful, arching necks and be sure to include little details like handles inset with hot and cold porcelain labels.
A Light Color Palette
Selecting light colored fixtures, trim, and interior paint is the perfect way to capture the crisp, clean look of a classic bathroom. Keep trim painted a glossy white and walls white or a very pale color to promote that perfectly kept look that is essential to a timeless style.
Natural stone like marble or boldly contrasting black and white tile are both common flooring options in a traditional bathroom. Looking for something with a little more detail? Incorporate a decorative tile border in the floor.
