What if there was indoor plumbing in 1740? Well, we pretended there was when we accepted the challenge to renovate an existing Ashland, MA bathroom, but with a nod to the home’s historic roots. Although the 18th Century farmhouse had been updated with a bathroom addition decades ago, the current bathroom was outdated and poorly laid out. Working with homeowners passionate about restoring their property to its original glory, we saw this as a unique challenge to create a “what if” kind of space.
From the handmade wainscoting and cabinetry, made right in our own workshop, to the restored chandelier the Owners found in the attic and the re-use of the original vanity top and mirror, you may just think the space had always been there…even before it could’ve been!
This space doubles as the laundry room. We relocated the washer and dryer and added more light with the addition of skylights. With the perfect mix of modern amenities and antique fixtures, this historic bathroom renovation is one of our team’s favorite transformations.
