Century Home Bathroom Renovation

The bathroom in your Century home can be one of the most charming rooms, and a century home bathroom renovation can be the ultimate update. We are here to give you some ideas on how to update your century home bathroom, without losing any of its charm.

Updated Flooring

Most times, in century home bathrooms, the floor is either an old hardwood floor, or a nasty linoleum flooring. Consider updating the flooring with vinyl flooring. Vinyl flooring is 100% waterproof and comes in tile, stone, and wood designs. We would recommend a wood style, as it would give you the warmth of the original wood floor, but without the worry of ruining hardwood!

Clean and Bright Walls

Many older homes have Pepto-pink, baby-blue, or puke-green bathtubs and matching subway tiles. Opt for white subway tiles, a clear vessel sink, accompanied with a white claw foot soaking tub, vanity, and toilet. This gives you a blank slate to be able to add any accent color of your choosing. If you become tired of the color, you can switch it out much more easily!

Create Focus

Keep in mind that you want to keep things very simple, to allow the eye to focus on the unique features in the bathroom. Maybe you have the original claw foot tub or some gorgeous stained glass windows. Allow these elements to shine through when you are remodeling and you will have a unique bathroom that will impress everyone.

Fix Important Issues

With lots of older homes, the plumbing can be the most costly to address. If you’ve purchased an older home that still had galvanized plumbing, you should have it inspected for rust and leaks. New homes are fitted with PVC pipes for plumbing as it’s more cost effective and there’s no risk of leaks from rusting. It will be a costly expense in the beginning, but it will save you from many issues down the road.
