Reclaiming Your 1970s Bathroom

Share This:

Taking the “groovy” out of disco era bathrooms is always a particularly satisfying project for our team. Of course, we don’t want to discriminate; there are lots of ugly bathrooms out there. But, for the sheer “Wow” factor, our circa 1970s bathroom remodels almost always win the day.

If you have bought (or inherited) a bathroom that hasn’t been updated in decades, you’ve probably got quite a few things you want to change.

Here are some common steps you can take to bring a 1970s bathroom into this century:

Whatever made anyone think carpet in the bathroom was a good idea? We always recommend removing bathroom carpet (find out what’s lurking underneath) and replace it with new (maybe even heated) flooring.

From pea green bathtubs to harvest gold fixtures – say goodbye to the crazy collection of colors that exploded in the 1970s.

Speaking of color – it’s a bathroom, not a cave. Ditch the paneling, and get rid of the wallpaper of metallic foil, geometric patterns or giant flowers.

Say goodbye to the brass fixtures and trim.

Replace those Formica counter tops

Get rid of the acrylic “marble” vanity tops and install a modern vanity

Bad lighting – those hanging, swag lamps and fluorescent panels have got to go.
