Tub Color

mothergoosFebruary 2, 2013

Hi all,

We are currently in the framing stages of an addition to our 80 year Craftsman style house. I am planning to order the Bain Ultra Elegancia tub, but am questioning whether to order it in white or bisque. The toilet and sink will then follow suit. Our vanity will be off white and the wood work will be stained to keep with the existing house. I was leaning towards bisque, but then argued with myself that white is timeless and crisp. Please help!

The fixtures that may have been in an 80 year old house would be pinky beige, blue, black, laveder, or even a mint green. If you want retro-esque, I'd suggest Kohler's Innocent Blush with grey and black tiles. Other than that, white has been available as long as they've been producing product.
