I have been researching historical photos for ideas to help us when we tackle our bathroom. The photos are taken from magazines, books and online sources covering the early 1900′s to the 1920′s. Most of the photos focus on the early years during that time span.
These rooms may look sterile to our modern eyes, but they were the high-end bathrooms of their day with all the bells and whistles.
Bathrooms were mainly white to appear clean and sanitary.
Wood trim, a wood toilet seat and a rug or two did occasionally sneak in. I really like the window in the above photo.
The bathroom on the right features square tiles on the floor and walls instead of the hex and subway tile more commonly associated with that time period.
Isn’t the tile in the bathroom shown on the right amazing?
