No bathroom? No problem!

There wasn't a bathroom on the second floor of Tracey's 1927 home. This small space, which was being used as an office, was the perfect candidate.

Bathroom renovation

The walls were taken back to the studs in order to run all new plumbing. Some electrical work allowed for new sconces to be installed on either side of the mirror.

The decor look

It was important that the bathroom suit the character of Tracey's 1920s home, so she chose vintage-style fixtures and classic finishes like marble. The original baseboards and mouldings were carefully preserved.

Bathtub

This free-standing bathtub has a similar feel to a clawfoot one, but with a sleeker shape. The vintage-style fixtures with cross handles and porcelain details are a nod to the home's era.

Layout

In the narrow, rectangular room, the bathtub was smartly placed along the wall with the sloped ceiling. On the opposite wall, a pedestal sink doesn't take up a lot of floor space.

Bathroom must-have

A luxurious soaker tub was a must-have for Tracey. The sleek free-standing she chose, with its pedestal base and antique-look tub filler with a hand shower, reinforces the heritage feeling of the home.
