Vintage Farmhouse Bathroom with Modern Appeal, Prestine 1960's: that would be the description of this bathroom when I bought my farmhouse. Yellow toilet, sink and shower. Psychedelic flower themed wallpaper. Orange carpet. Yes, carpet in the bathroom, on top of which the toilet sat. Yuck. Hazmat suit for demo? Yes, please. We gutted this bathroom down to the floor joists. We ran new electrical and installed a bathroom fan. We moved the toilet to accommodate a claw foot tub. And we busted down a wall to install a neo-angle glass shower. This was the first full room I remodeled in my house and I chose to go with a very vintage feel. I choose traditional penny tiles for the flooring and pine edge and center bead for the walls and ceiling. I decided to install pedestal sinks with vintage-y chrome faucets. Even though, I don't have as much storage space as I did before with the clunky plywood cabinet, I don't mind. There is something a little gross about storing things long term in a bathroom, don't you think? I choose to tile the shower with white subway tiles and to accent it with a glass tile. The glass shower door and the glass tile add a modern touch to a very vintage bath. I replaced the 1960 brass door knob on the bathroom door with a cast iron and glass replica knob made by a company in NH that has been producing door knobs, shelving brackets and other miscellaneous hardware since the 1890's. I figured the original door knobs from this house that were lost many years ago may have come from this company. It feels a little more like restoration and less like rote remodeling when I can find something from the same period to put back into the house. It brings peace to a house that upon entering looks chaotic - decades of mismatched remodels that don't quiet flow with one another or the original character of the house itself. And in the end, that is my purpose with this house - to right the wrongs of the past and restore it to its original splendor., Bathrooms Design

Taking our kitchen into the 21st century!, We bought our home in1992 and haven't done anything to update the kitchen since.  Although its functionality was good, it was very dated.
