The One “Dated” Bathroom Feature Designers Don’t Want You to Remove

Don't overlook this gem when you begin the remodelling process.

When it comes to updating old bathrooms, our immediate instinct is to completely gut the space. Everything from the sink to the shower gets replaced, and we quickly forget what the original bathroom looked like. But sometimes, new isn't always best and there's one feature you might want to consider retaining.

Whether you don't have the budget for a full renovation, or you're interested in keeping some historical charm in your space, preserving original bathroom tiles – be it on the floor, walls, or bathtub – during your renovation can be advantageous for several reasons.

How to work with the existing tiles

If you want to keep the original tiles but update the rest of the bathroom, there are a few ways to go about it to keep things cohesive. Many original tiles are unique, bold, or colourful, so ensuring your other design features complement them is key. Instead of trying to conceal or disguise the vintage designs, embrace their retro charm and make them a focal point of the space.

When to not preserve bathroom tiles

If your tiles are damaged, outdated, pose health risks, or you simply dislike them, you should replace them.
