    Default Bath gets a classic redo, 1920s-style

    Before

    Chipped tile and worn fixtures made the original bath feel dilapidated.


    A cast-iron tub, a clean-lined pedestal sink, white subway tiles, and a black-and-white marble floor are classic early-20th-century touches. Light-reflecting beveled subway tile has a period look and helps a small space feel bigger.

    Ooh, I love that the subway tiles are beveled, really gives it a nice texture to a classic style. And I'm in love with the telephone-style faucet fixture in the tub, too.

    Made a cramped, ugly looking space pretty and usable.

    Good use of a small space but (a) is there an overhead shower rose and (b) where do you hang bath towels?

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    don't see an over head shower. but in a set up like that, if you did take a shower, you just put the curtain in the tub and slide it around. works fine.

    very nice remodel.
