Vintage Bathroom Upgrades for Selling A Home

clawfoot tub

When homeowners decide to remodel a bathroom, they often think about how it could be perceived years from now by a future buyer. The problem with the most up-to-the-minute styles is they become dated fast. Instead of trying to stay one step ahead of the trends, many find going with a vintage option is ideal.

Five-Star Friday: Bathroom Accessories

From overflow covers to bathroom shelves, bathroom accessories are a must-have for any bathroom! This week’s Five-Star Friday post looks at some of our most reviewed bathroom accessories. Take a look and see what these Vintage Tub customers had to say.

Strom Overflow Cover

Item #P0644
Written by: Lindamh (Boston, MA)
“Not Installed -I was so excited to order this. It looks so old-fashioned and holds the stopper! Strom is a high-quality company. However, while the faucet installed easily, this cover did not due to screw positioning. Not all set-ups are the same - sigh. When I update the tub, I will re-order. Vintage Tub made the return process so easy."

Strom Clawfoot Tub Coasters

Item #S243
Written by: SadOlRed (Spokane, WA)
“Not installed yet, still waiting for my plumber/contractor friend to make it to my state to create my new bathroom.  The foot coasters arrived safe and sound though, no cracks or chips, and they were packed and padded well. I’m looking forward to setting my clawfoot tub into them on my new tile floor.  I will try to remember to take photos when it happens and send them here."

Bathtub Caddy

Randolph Morris Adjustable Tub Caddy with Reading Rack
Item #RMNSS204-S
Written by: JohnnyBee (Sacramento, CA)
“I bought this rack for my wife to use while soaking in her new tub. It is exactly the style and color I ordered and it works great. She can prop her book up on it and read her favorite book while soaking her aching bones. It is very stable and looks great. She can even set her tumbler of wine in it. Fantastic product.”

Design Trend: Double Ended Pedestal Tubs

Pedestal tubs are a type of freestanding tub that mimic the art-deco style. These types of tubs have been gaining popularity in modern bathroom design, creating a fresh and stylish take on the 1920s and 1930s trend. The body of the tub is available in a variety of styles, from double slipper to double ended. Here are a few of our favorite bathrooms that have incorporated double end pedestal tubs into a beautiful and functional design.

Thermostatic VS. Pressure Balance Showers

Have you ever been taking a shower when suddenly someone flushes the toilet or starts doing the dishes? We’ve all been there, and it’s no walk in the park. You’re either scalded to the point where your skin feels like it’s melting, or froze and you wish you were scalded instead. Both thermostatic and pressure balanced showers are designed to allow you to better control the temperature in your shower, but each operates in its own way.
