The color ads for bathrooms of the 1920s were primarily limited to Crane, Kohler, Standard Sanitary Manufacturing, but there were others like Fairfacts and the Tile Manufacturers Association that produced equally attractive images. The pictures were lushly illustrated in watercolor, pastels, and oils. Occasionally, the artist had enough commercial appeal that their name was published. Though the images depicted idealized bathroom decor, they were often the only images homemakers had to refer to when choosing paint, tile, and plumbing fixtures.
