Remodeling or even refreshing a small bathroom can be both a challenge and a lot of fun, which is exactly what eFaucets customer Marie Scholtz faced in her 1920s home.
Styles in the 1920s typically involved wide baseboards, chunky moldings around doorways, hardwood flooring, and detailed tile work in bathrooms. Scholtz needed fixtures that would bring her bathroom into the 21st century while retaining the historic feel of her home. She chose the Cheviot white pedestal sink with metal console stand.
“We bought this sink for our 1920 home, and it suits both the traditional character of our house and the modern spin we put in our bathroom,” she wrote in a review.
Scholtz said she also appreciates Cheviot’s attention to detail; the slightly rounded bowl and legs that are attached just behind the very front of the sink.
“We were pleasantly surprised to learn that the front of the sink is a bit rounded, and there is still space for soap or a few bottles of things in the back,” her review continues. “Moreover, the console legs don’t support the sink from the very front edge, (so) it’s such a great use of space for us, in our smaller bathroom.”
Clearly, Scholtz is also a stickler for detail; there is penny tile on the floor, period-perfect white subway tile on the walls, and a vintage, 4-inch centerset polished chrome faucet that pulls the room together.
