3 Tips for Designing a Victorian-Era Style Bathroom, ,

From candle-encircled bathtubs to floral motifs, there’s something remarkable about Victorian-style bathrooms. What if you could enjoy one daily, in the comfort of your own home? If you’re eager to start bathing with the luxuries of today in the grandeur of centuries past, consider the following bathroom remodeling tips.

Bathroom Remodeling Tips for a Victorian-Era Look

1. Clawfoot Tubs

bathroom remodelingFor a refined bathroom look, install a clawfoot or freestanding tub. This unmistakable, old-fashioned element will be the focal point of your bathroom, turning ordinary everyday routines into luxury experiences. For a more elegant look, choose a clawfoot tub with gilded feet and brass knobs. If you want something more subtle and modern, opt for an all-white, porcelain freestanding tub.

2. Patterned Designs

Shy away from bland, monochromatic choices. Create a homey, old-world environment by incorporating patterns into the space, not just solid colors. Whether you choose a striped chair or floral wallpaper, ornate patterns will add to your bathroom. Add visual interest through patterned flooring; in the Victorian era, black-and-white diamond or checkerboard patterns were common.

3. Basin Sinks

When running water wasn’t a household norm, families used pitchers and basins to wash their face and hands, gathering water from a well outside. Install a bowl-like sink on your vanity to echo this tradition. Instead of opting for a stark white, minimalist option, go for a cream or pastel color and keep an eye out for delicate details like gold rims, antique knobs, and floral motifs.
