Claw foot tub under beautiful window in historic home bathroom remodel in Sidney IL

1895 Victorian Bathroom Addition

Sidney, IL

19th century farmhouses did not typically have 2nd floor bathrooms. An unfinished storage area on the second floor was converted to a master bathroom by building a dormer. Existing trim was reused or new was milled and finished to match. This space combines the best of old and new with a period-appropriate, hex-tile floor, a “slipper” style soaking tub and antique vanity top and wall cabinets. The patterned slate tile siding on the dormer exterior makes it look like it was there since 1895.
