Updating an Old Home with a Traditional or Old World Bathroom Design

When purchasing an older home, including a Victorian style home, there are some incredible ways to update the home without taking away the character of its age.  The bathrooms are the main indicator of a homes age.  With styles and materials constantly evolving, tile, hardware, and the vanity can date the bathroom.

When updating an older home, we offer a wide range of traditional and old world vanities in different sizes to meet specific home requirements.

From the classic Brookfield collection to the Providence collection, traditional vanities update an older home without taking away character.  Providence was created to work well with many styles and sizes of homes.  The classic elements of the raised panel doors are complimented with the grand French style cremone hardware.  Available in cottage white, driftwood, and urban gray, customizing your bathroom space is simple and seamless.

Old-fashioned touches are the perfect way to add character to a renovated home.  At James Martin Vanities, we offer a wide range of vanities that are built with an old world style and, yet, have the new and fresh feel.

The Regent 202 Series takes you back in time, featuring old world charm and hints of history throughout each detail.  This collection is perfect for renovating a Victorian home.  Features on the Regent collection include an English Burl finish, canted corners, and cabinets that add charm and depth to your bathroom space.

Create a sense of warmth and originality with the Regent collection.  Based on the English Regency style with Dutch influences throughout and with hand-carved kiln-dried Birch hardwood solids, the attention to detail will make this vanity the focal point of your bathroom space.  Dark antique brass hardware and the rich, dark hues add depth to your space and create the perfect atmosphere for soaking and relaxing after a long day.

Renovating an older home definitely has its perks.  The ability to infuse elements of the original character of the home in a new way brings an old home to life.  The bathroom is one room that requires special attention to detail when updating a Victorian or older home.

The old world bathroom vanities all feature hand-carving details that accentuate the dark, rich woods.  The Balmoral collection is perfect for a master or guest bathroom.  The intricately detailed hand carvings highlight the Scottish Highlands and the antique walnut finish creates a deep, warm color that is found in most Victorian homes.

Before beginning any renovation project, we advise our customers to really get to know the history of your home.  Consider the time in which it was built and familiarize yourself with the architecture and style of that time period.  Once you have an understanding of the character and original build of the home, try to incorporate aspects of that architecture in unique ways.

Updating an older home without stripping the house of its original character will help you achieve the perfect balance of old and new.
