If you are interested in renovating your bathroom and want a classically vintage look, the following tips will help:
Incorporate statement lighting options
Some may say that a chandelier is over the top for a bathroom but the right one will provide your bathroom with class. The trick is to select a fixture that will provide the perfect amount of drama to make you and your guests think of antique vintage. A chandelier with a jewelled appearance can be the focal point of your bathroom and the best part is that you don’t have to purchase something expensive or a fixture made with real gems in order for it to be classically vintage. There are so many options that can help you achieve this look, so you’ll be able to find lighting that is within your budget.
Consider silver and gold plumbing fixtures
If you want your bathroom to look like it belongs in the Victorian era, you need shiny silver and gold fixtures. Bronze will work too and these fixtures will give off the illusion of wealth and royalty, which are qualities of a classically vintage space. Modern plumbing fixtures will prevent you from achieving that look, so stick to long and rounded fixtures to give your bathroom a regal appearance.
Choose deep coloured wood cabinets
You need an element that will contrast perfectly with your shiny plumbing fixtures and deep, dark and rich wood cabinets are the answer. This will really push the vintage look and the beautiful contrast between the different elements will provide your bathroom with an antique look. If you want to take it one step further, you can also add ornamental knobs and handles because these details will really help you achieve the desired effect.
Hang old era prints
Paintings and prints that have a distressed look to them will help transport your bathroom to an old era, which is perfect for a vintage look. Make sure the prints are appropriate so that they feel like they are from an old classic era and match them with gold frames to finish them off.
Hang monogrammed towels
This may seem like a stretch but monogrammed towels will really take your bathroom to the next level. Bold calligraphy-style letters will make you feel like royalty every time you use the towels and will add the perfect amount of drama, so don’t be afraid to add this touch because monogrammed items will make a statement.
