A 1964 blue bathroom with built-in Hall-Mack, NuTone, Textolite & more

vintage-bathroom-laundry-chute-and-recessed-scaleTHE 1964 SPLIT-LEVEL TIME CAPSULE first shown yesterday also had two great bathrooms. The full bath upstairs is a beautiful robin’s egg blue, all 4×4″ field tiles, with cheerful flowery liner tiles. There is a separate bathtub and the shower. The shower door is a true classic, and notice the terrazzo floor pan, the light, and the tile on the diagonal on the ceiling.

And there’s more: A laundry chute built into a storage cubby… and the fold-down Hall-Mack scale holder below. The laminate countertop on the dual vanity is surely GE Textolite, from the “Twilight” series . And, the owner’s daughter told me that the Nutone exhaust fan/light also had a built-humidistat that turned the fan on and off automatically when the room became too humid. Finally, there was a hidden door to the master suite, along with a door to the hall. This might have been the best bathroom ever in this history of the retro-universe. Again – not pretentious, but so well considered and well built. Click through for the slide show – 15 images in all.

    I have a pink bathroom shower just like this…but in disrepair. The shower door was allowed to leak behind the tile and ruined the tile and wall. Our shower has no light/fan IN the shower, but near the tub on the other side of the room. Does anyone have advice for preventing mildew from the moisture in such a small shower? And the shower door problem? I do not want to tear it out, but constant mildew isn’t good for my son’s asthma. *sigh*

      Bambi, if the wall is ruined the wall is ruined. You need to consult with professionals to assess the issue — all the more so if you have a son with asthma. Although I AM NOT AN EXPERT I would think: You do not want mold to grow inside those walls. GET YOUR OWN PROPERLY LICENSED PROFESSIONALS to help you find out what you are dealing with and what to do… Good luck.

    I need to purchase the4 exact same ceiling fan as posted on this page, it’s a Nutone fan/lite/heater. All I really need is a good working motor but I’d buy whole thing if possible.

    I’m looking for a replacement NuTone light cover w/bezel for a MCM bathroom heat/light like the one that’s shown in the picture above. Do you sell them?
