Cozy bath

Good eye! Yes, there was quite a bit of settling in the older parts of this house. There was a tremendous amount of water which sloped right into the foundation and over time took its toll. We dealt with the water flow, but didn't change the second floor of the old cape.

This is a match to DKC-33 from the Donald Kaufman Collection suitable for floors. Moisture is managed well with a properly sized bath fan.

Hi Becky - do you know what tub faucet they used for this project? We have an old farmhouse bathroom project and this one would work perfectly! Thanks!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Over the staircase was what Smith described as "a musty old bathroom."This salvaged clawfoot tub was repaired and replumbed, and it's a perfect fit underneath the slanted roofline. Smith integrated another built-in bookshelf for storage and added a new window. A vintage ladder of the client's serves as an antique towel rack.
Danyelle Mathews added this to The Family Home: Going Greener
4. Take a family outing to the salvage yard. There are many treasures to be found at a salvage yard. Some of my favorites are the rows and rows of old claw-foot bathtubs. If you're currently building a home and looking to add some character, a vintage claw-foot tub might be your ticket. I bet the kids would love to splash around in the one pictured here.More ways to work with salvage finds
Or use it as a leaning towel rack.
Laura Gaskill added this to How to Outfit a Classic Farmhouse
A claw-foot tub is the quintessential pick for a farmhouse bathroom. Warm, comfy touches like beadboard wainscoting and built-in details finish the look.
11. Monograms. Towels that are monogrammed say country home ... same with silver or pillowcases or anything else you can put your initials on. For couples who share a last name, try a monogram using your last initial as the center letter, with your first initials on either side.
