There are lots of different styles you can opt for when decorating your bathroom, but it seems that more and more people are choosing to go vintage. They want to bring back the chic, the elegance and the visual appeal of the old ages, when things were simple and homes were classy. Creating a vintage-style bathroom might seem like a complex and hard project, but it’s actually easier than you think, and all you have to do is follow these easy steps.
One of the things that made vintage bathrooms exciting and elegant was the flooring. There were no cheap materials and easy solutions, and everything had to be just right because people didn’t want to compromise on the quality of their flooring.
And it’s not just about the choice of colours, but about the way you combine them. Creating different mosaics on your bathroom floor could make it appear more vintage than ever, so give this idea a thought before settling on anything else.
When decorating their bathrooms, people generally don’t pay enough attention to the fixtures, and simply go for the options that are the cheapest on the market. However, these are rarely vintage enough and this small mistake could easily ruin your entire decorating process.
Therefore, be sure to pick only those fixtures and fittings that are 100% vintage and remember to look for them on the Internet and on your local flea market – you can never know where you’re going to find the right piece for your bathroom.
The pipes are another element that’s generally overlooked when you’re decorating your bathroom, and the thing with vintage bathrooms is that most people don’t know what to do with the pipes. You can’t completely remove them, but can hide them – and if you do that with a stylish vanity, your bathroom will become more charming and vintage within minutes.
Nevertheless, don’t forget to call a professional who’ll check every corner and remove any hidden bathroom leaks that could bring you a ton of trouble in the future. The sooner you fix these leaks, the better, and then you’ll be able to enjoy your vintage bathroom completely.
Nothing says vintage more effectively than a huge mirror – not only will this become the focal point of your bathroom as soon as you install it, but it will also bring the elegance of the entire space to a completely new level. But don’t be afraid to pick an extra-large mirror as well, because size does matter when it comes to these things.
You can always pick a mirror you’ve found at a flea market, but repaint its frame first. This way, you can colour-coordinate it with your tiles and make every element in your vintage bathroom blend together.
This is the largest and most noticeable part of your bathroom, so you’d better make sure it gets the attention it deserves. Luckily, picking a vintage bathtub is now easier than ever with so many different freestanding tubs available on the market.
These come in all shapes, sizes and colours, so anyone can find a model that works for their bathroom and agrees with their preferred color combination, tiles and vanities. Ultimately, such a tub will surely become your favourite bathroom feature, so pay close attention when picking it.
As you can see, creating a vintage bathroom isn’t as hard as it seems and it’s all about combining a handful of elements – set the tone with some vintage tiles, bring in a dose of charm with a vintage bathtub and top it all off with a vintage mirror, and you’re good to go!
