An Updated Bath with Historic Roots

Getting updated features without compromising the home’s historic integrity

When thinking about remodeling an old, historic home, many homeowners long for the modern conveniences of today without losing the charm and character held within the persona of the house. Such was the case with this bathroom remodel.

Enter Riggs Construction & Design, along with the firm’s many years of experience in updating historic homes in Kirkwood, Webster Groves, and throughout the St. Louis area. The great news is that many manufacturers offer lines of tubs, showers, faucets, cabinetry and such that are reminiscent of classic styles found in older homes. Yet these products offer the modern conveniences and functions, along with energy savings.

This bathroom features a claw-footed tub, built-in shower space, fireplace, and new classic cabinetry. Riggs worked with the existing ceiling lines to keep the charm created by the curves and window nooks.
