The vintage-inspired Kid’s Bath is complete! It’s time for the big reveal. Take a look at the Before & After photos.

BEFORE: The existing large Bathroom needed to be completely reconfigured to hold a double sink vanity and separate tub and shower.

The Before: A 90-Year-Old Bath

Before the remodel, this Bathroom was poorly laid out with lots of wasted space. It needed to be reconfigured to accommodate the needs today’s family vs. 90 years ago. The tub and shower were separated, a double vanity replaced a pedestal sink, and cabinetry was added for storage.

BEFORE: The Bath had a tub/shower combo with a shower rod. The old Bath layout had a lot of wasted space and needed to be reconfigured.

Creating A Vintage Bath With Modern Function

The existing plumbing was failing and needed to be completely replaced. Although the Kid’s Bath is completely remodeled, the finishes like subway tile, wainscot on the walls, and black hex tile floor were selected to stay true to the period of the home. The cabinetry was chosen to match existing woodwork throughout the home, and the fixtures (plumbing, lighting, hardware) also compliment the home’s period. See all the “After” photos below!

AFTER: The new Kid's Bath features dark cabinetry and vanity which was chosen to match existing woodwork throughout the home.

AFTER: The fixtures (plumbing, lighting, hardware) were chosen to compliment the home’s period.
AFTER: A double vanity replaces the pedestal sink allowing for more people to use the space more efficiently. Twice as much toothbrushing space!
The radiator was repositioned to fit the remodeled Bathroom layout.
