One is circa 1964 and in original condition, everything except the lino floor that arrived sometime in the 90s.
The bath is green, so are the tiles, and the vanity sink. The shower base is a speckled concrete thing that is so good at hiding dirt and mould, I am not sure if it needs cleaning or just looks that way.
The eighties bathroom, is all sorts of glamour that you will never find in a current bathroom shop. I have loaded the tapware to facebook before for comments, and all our friends that visit comment on them. They are certainly a talking point.
As we accept the reality that we need to update, all I can find is white.
Bathrooms are now all just white. Vanity, bath, shower recess...white, white white.
You can add some minor colour with a cupboard, some charcoal perhaps, or a natural shade (otherwise known as brown). But otherwise it is white.
I actually love our 1960s bathroom, but the tiles can't be replaced.
I love the taps in the 1980s bathroom, but changing the washers isn't enough anymore and we really need to replace.
So if you are a bathroom designer or supplier and have something that is not white, please let me know.
If you have a bathroom that you think has some style about it, maybe load the pic to my facebook page and give me some ideas.
If you recall the 1960s, and have any idea what the original floor coverings would have been, I would also love to know that.
Basically, give me your bathroom updating tips, especially in avoiding the stark white bathroom choice.
