Steampunk Bathroom Ideas

by paperfacets

All ladies want a dream bathroom for relaxing and soaking on a rainy day: before work for that matter. Here are ideas for changing your bath into the Steampunk fantasy room.

Welcome to Steampunk bath ideas. Steampunk is a genre that has evolved into a mix of Victorian era inventions with fantasy story weapons, mod-vic clothing and accessories that are eye catching and exciting.

Create your dream bath and if you shop at the right places and compare you can do it on a budget. Use these suggestions to get your imagination rolling.

I its beginning, Steampunk objects and designs for decor, were strictly artist made, but the look has broke out of the cult following and into less expensive main stream marketing. Fun for the masses and any steampunk fan.

This page is dedicated to ideas for the steampunk bathroom.

Start with A Clean Slate

Let's imagine the walls and ceiling first. Mod-Vic look tiles start our project at the top. Generally the bath is the smallest room unless one is working with a modern house with the master bath. This may not be a big expense. 

Antyx Antique Copper Patina (24x24" Pvc) Ceiling Tile

Use the patina in the tile to help with the color palette. Googling Steampunk color palette brings up colors galore in working with the patina. 

Below is seven color palettes for your house. Two vertical rows have the aqua color included. The row on the far left side with the white and yellows can include a red hue for accent, such as flowers, a wall hanging with matching red hues or a pair of candle holders.

The Luxurious Bath

Endless choices for the tub. I advise getting what you like to soak in.  I have heard that acrylic is easy to clean. Be sure to consider length of tub and drain location and what kind of faucet will work in your bath.

Customize The American Standard Vanity

Most vanities can be customized with bowl, top and faucet. The Jefferson above is a good example. It is also available in different wood types. I like how the bowl sits on the surface just like the vanities that were 19th century bedroom staples.   Running water is our everyday convenience now, thank you for that. Instead of carrying a chamber pot out, I can use the time for a blow dry or putting on miracle wrinkle cream.

Have you decided that steampunk can be an investment to actually live-in everyday? I mean putting elements into the living spaces of the home. It can be a collecting experience.

Revisiting your wizzley brought to mind something that I'd meant to say with the first reading.

In particular, I'm finding the steampunk bathroom the most convincing room for going with the style in the kitchen and elsewhere.

Would you happen to know what are the best cleaning products for keeping everything scratch-free and shining?

DerdriuMarriner on 06/02/2017

paperfacets, Will you be expanding on the steampunk kitchen idea and product line?

Candy, I have to say I am on the fence too, but some elements could be seen almost anywhere. It has hints of Victorian.

I've been on the fence about steampunk decor but you might have pushed me over a little! I love the accessories, that would be a good place for me to start.

I would love a clawfoot bath tub like that to relax in - love the color too. I might think about that the next time we redo the bathroom.
