If you’re one of those curmudgeons who grumps about how “they don’t build them like they used to,” the great finds from VintagePlumbing.com may be in your renovation future. While many companies and manufacturers have copied the aesthetic of the old days and created modern reproductions of baths, sinks, toilets and hardware, Los Angeles-based VintagePlumbing.com sells the real thing.
When looking through the inventory at VintagePlumbing.com, I must say that I never knew a toilet could be so pretty. Just like some food looks too good to eat, some of the thrones featured on the website look too good to do your business in. We’re talking embossed, hand-painted and lovingly etched toilets, people!
If the loo isn’t your obsession, there are also plenty of other plumbing-related beauties like old ribcage showers (so neat!), beautiful clawfoot and pedestal-style bath tubs, Victorian marble sinks and even farmhouse kitchen sinks. If you prefer to just get some finishing touches, there are lots of accessories and fixtures available at VintagePlumbing.com. There’s everything from vintage shower doors to nickel-plated bath tissue roll holders to art deco taps and faucets.
Whether you’re restoring the beauty of a 1930s home or you just want to inject some authentic vintage pieces into a powder room, VintagePlumbing.com is worth a look. While LA-based home owners can be treated to an in-person tour of the inventory, VintagePlumbing.com welcomes virtual customers from around the country.
