Where the American bathroom had been primarily functional with some design appeal in previous decades, by the late 1950s and into the early '60s, it began to shown a decided shift toward more opulent and fanciful decorative elements. Finer tile work often in small mosaic patterns, exotic neo-stylistic flourishes, and higher end fixtures with lots of bold color tended to be the rule. And often, homeowners were enticed by homes with more than one bathroom, especially in new construction.
