Anna, can you give us some details as to what you have to work with (size, etc.). Post us a couple photos of the area as it is and I'm sure we can offer some suggestions.
size of room is a big factor like Dan said...
If you want to have real vintage lighting, I love this website: http://www.pwvintagelighting.com/
You can also search for bathrooms under projects at the top of the page for lots of inspiring ideas from other Hometalkers.
Anna, recently a hometalk member worked on her very old home. The tore down the bathroom and and recreated that vintage look the home demanded. - http://www.hometalk.com/member/xa5d5s7srk
Scroll down her profile and see her bathroom project.
I can see a claw foot tub for sure in your space.
Take a look at renovated home in your area that are listed for sale. Where in Marietta are you? I can probably point you to several. Nothing is a substitute for seeing it in person! Happy to take a look at it for you as well
Anna, what are you looking for; to recreate the 60's with modern comforts or go a whole different way? Can we see some photos of the rooms, and give us your list of wants/nots/gotta haves! Your hometalk family is ready to assist. I have the same kinda home in Marietta, although my home is pretty eclectic I do love my original pink tile; floor and ceilings - just spruced up paint, fixtures, put in a beautiful granite counter top, new sink and faux finished the cabinets & mirror, updated the knobs. I'm happy for now with little financial output. Let us know, we're here for you.
I want to upgrade to tile w/stone look and everything new. Don't really want vessel sinks, so need to solve that problem. Looking at tile concerns me as may not be happy with a color long term. I'm drawn to the Emil Ceramica tile of Earth but think in the whole, may be too much red tones. May need to go with Fire, which actually is cooler to me, not as much color. After choosing the tile, how to decide on the wall color as I've always went with white, which seems boring. Lots of decisions and then there is the 2nd bath - do same or go w/color? Leaning toward green/blue tones but use lots of bath powder - which may do better with lighter tones on a day to day basis. I'm sure I seem to be over-thinking, but that is what I do. Don't spend thousands every day. Thanks.
I need a clarification about a response Steve Q, I didn't see the projects at the top of the page. I'm new on this site. Contractor coming tomorrow.
I think I found the projects under posts at All Talk - that where you meant? Nothing about bathrooms.
Sorry, I wasn't clear in my reply. At the top of the page, you should see a search box that says "search posts." If you search for bathroom remodels, you can find some great projects and great ideas. Or just follow this link, which I should have provided in the first place:
You can search for more specific items as well.
Staying with the character of a house is nice. Pantone has named a Pink and a Light Blue as its 2016 colors of the year. Is your tile pink or blue? You could have an historic house in the near future.
