Staying true to a home's character doesn't mean you have to keep banging your knees against the bathtub. Annmarie McCarthy and Mark LePage, both architects, were drawn to their 1934 Tudor Revival in Chappaqua, New York, for its vintage look.
But after a few years of living with its original black-and-white L-shaped bath (the lone full bath upstairs—and one they share with their three children), the couple craved a little leg room. Now wider and brighter, the room has vintage-style tile, chrome fittings, and a windowed alcove. The marble ledge offers a handy spot for bath supplies while reinforcing the horizontal lines of the tilework.
