Antique bathroom faucets can contribute to a unique, authentic period feel in any bathroom space. Whether your goal is to replicate a particular historical era or simply to hint at design flourishes from times past, antique faucets can be a great style choice.

Gorgeous Marble Bathroom

If you're considering antique bathroom faucets, you'll first want to decide if you want true antiques, or if replicas will do. There are plenty of retailers who specialize in antique bathroom fixtures, locally, nationally and online, so if you want the real deal, you'll want to start with one of them. If an antique replica will do, most home improvement stores carry lines of bathroom fixtures with several pieces in antique styles.

Antique bathroom faucets are available in a variety of styles, but there are certain eras of bathroom design that are commonly seen. In particular, Victorian-era faucets are popular. These are often found with gilded metal and grand, curving necks and ornately sculpted handles, sometimes in the shape of flora and fauna. Colonial-era antiques, which are much more straightforward and utilitarian, are often found in oil-rubbed brass; they can pair well with any traditional bathroom design.
