Uncover the Vintage & Charming in Your Bathroom
Don’t ditch your older style bathroom fixtures, instead embrace them for their retro appeal with these bathroom decorating ideas. Add a few vintage elements and show off the charisma that it seems only time can bring!
When you’re ready to transform your bathroom, look at how you can add that vintage appeal to every element in the room. Instead of a standard cabinet, add flair with a special shelving unit in whimsical distressed metal. Open shelves provide the opportunity to show off pretty accessories and piles of luxurious towels. Add a milky white old-fashioned bowl and pitcher for a throwback to yesteryear.
Keep it Together
Set the mood with the decorative accessories on your counter or gracing your shelving. Try a trio of elegant glass canisters. Choose seeded glass or mercury glass for an elegant nod to days gone by and fill them with bathroom essentials like cotton balls and swabs. Or showcase a few stems of flowers in an unexpected vase that harkens back to an earlier time.
Something to Reflect On
Swap that plain mirror over your sink for one with a gorgeous embossed frame. It will immediately change the mood of the room and complement the vintage look you’re going after, feeling like a beautiful framed work of art on the wall. Add a vanity mirror or vintage hand mirror for a little more reflection.
Nothing says Victorian romance like delicate lace, cascades of ruffles, pretty crochet and crinkled voile. Add that romantic flair anywhere, whether it’s a doily underneath a set of figurines, curtains framing your window, a crocheted rug or lace-trimmed towels.
Fixtures Say it All
Clawfoot tubs and a set of lovely spa bathtub accessories makes anyone feel pampered. For the sink, avoid modern vanity-mounted ones and try a pedestal style instead.
