This style of bathroom will suit an older style home or apartment, with distinct heritage or federation features. It’s a popular design when trying to modernize an older home to its former glory to keep within a classic theme.

Art Deco got its name after becoming the most popular architectural style in the 1920s. Geometric shapes, symmetrical lines, stained-glass windows and grandeur accents in brass and gold are all key to the Art Deco design.

If you thought this design meant a bathroom like this, think again.

Black accents in the hardware and tapware compliment this bathroom. It’s got subtle hints to the Art Deco era with the flooring and window details.

If geometric shapes are too bold for you, incorporate Art Deco accents with the mirror, vanity handles and sconces.

Stained glass windows can be a focal feature in an Art Deco bathroom.
