Trending Retro and Vintage Bathroom Ideas

With many bathroom designs trending these days, you’d find it a bit surprising that some of them look familiar, almost as if they’ve always been popular. However, being aware of what’s currently popular always helps in choosing the right ideas for your remodel.  

Trending Retro and Vintage Bathroom Ideas

As one of the best roofing companies in the area, Oberg Roofing & Remodeling shares some retro bathroom ideas for you to consider:

Floating Fixtures

Today’s trending bathroom remodels are designed with vanities that seem to float over the ground. While the reasons behind this vary, we strongly recommend this if you’re opting for more space as you design your bathroom remodel. 

Checkerboard Flooring

This type of pattern actually dates back to ancient Egypt before becoming a mainstay of linoleum-tiled kitchens in the 1920s and ’30s. Today, the checkerboard pattern is trending once again, and it’s mostly due to the print’s versatility, visual appeal, and ease of installation.

Terrazzo Design

Terrazzo tiling was huge in custom homes built in the 1950s and ’60s but began to fall out of fashion in the disco era. It’s trending once again mostly because of its known durability. But if you’re having terrazzo tiles installed for your washstand and sink basin, make sure your hired bathroom and roof replacement contractor uses water or solvent-based sealer immediately after polishing the stone to ensure that water doesn’t penetrate.


Houseplants actually do more than just add a touch of nature to your bathroom space; according to one study, people who spent time in a room decorated with plants rated themselves as more confident and energized as compared to those who spent time in spaces without plants. 

Adding houseplants in interior design, especially spider plants and ferns, were very popular accents in the 1970s. They’ve since come back as popular design motifs for modern bathrooms.
