Edward Street was a century home where the customers wanted to keep the original feel of the bathroom and decided to go with a 1920s themed design. This incorporated subway tile, 1-inch hex floor tile, a restored roll-top tub (claw foot), retro toilet and industrial-chic sink. Of course, some modern day amenities were also added, including a heated floor.
Some of the challenges were based on what is typical after a house has been standing for a hundred years: nothing is left plumb or level. In this Edward Street home, the walls were 3-inches out of plumb from ceiling to floor. Subway tile would’ve highlighted this problem so we added new framing members to hang the drywall.
