Decorating Debates: How to Add Vintage Furniture to the Bathroom
  • Opening Intro -

    Today, sleek modern designs seem to be the style of choice in bathrooms.

    Keeping with a more vintage theme can be difficult when all you can find are straight lined cabinets and hard blocked furniture.

-------------------------------------

Choosing the right vintage furniture for your bathroom will depend on its size, the bathroom layout, existing decor, budget and more. But with a little research and the tips here, you will be able to choose the perfect pieces for your bathroom.

What Does Your Bathroom Already Do Well?

Your first step is to identify what is already working well in your bathroom. For instance, maybe you have plenty of storage and don’t need more drawers or tables. Or perhaps your existing tub or shower fits perfectly, or is already a featured vintage piece. Be sure to note the location of existing plumbing and fixtures and plan around those as well.

What Does Your Bathroom Lack?

In the same way, you may find yourself continually frustrated with certain things about your bathroom space. Is the lighting adequate for your needs? Do you constantly wish for a window? Does its drab decorating depress you? Do you have plenty of storage for large items like linens but nothing for small items like makeup? Again, do a walk-through and identify what you’d like to change about your bathroom.

Tips to Choose the Perfect Vintage Furniture

Once you know what is working well in your bathroom and what still needs some work, you can get to work on identifying the right type of vintage furniture to help pick the perfect theme.

 

Tip #1: Add the warmth of wood to a drab industrial bathroom.
Wood softens and warms the starkness of "old school" functional bathrooms. A gorgeous vintage étagère or a custom wardrobe can be just the thing.

 

Tip #2: Use a vintage sink stand in place of your existing sink.
If you have a tiny bathroom and can’t bring in a big piece, you can still incorporate a vintage stand (it doesn’t have to be originally designed for use with a sink, either) in place of your existing sink for a timeless appeal. Have a company like A P Plumbing come and give you advice on how to install these kinds of pieces.

 

Tip #3: Decorate with vintage art, wall sconces, and mirrors.
If you really have no space for floor pieces, the next best thing is to incorporate vintage art and décor. Wall sconces give your bathroom a soft, romantic, spa-like appeal. A gorgeous oversized vintage mirror can also help your bathroom feel twice as large.

Once you gain a thorough understanding of what you want to change in your bathroom, you can begin the fun part – searching for the perfect vintage piece to complete your look!
