You might not consider the décor idea of using antiques in the bathroom, but this room can be elevated to new décor heights by bringing in something with personality. Here are some tips to create old school charm. The key is to do so in such a way that you bring home stylish elegance.
Plain sinks are a thing of the past. If you’re after something vintage, then updating your sink can be a great way way to achieve the look. Chrome and marble are two materials that work wonderfully in this regard, so think of using them in your antique-inspired bathroom. Chrome is also a great transitional substance: it pays homage to a vintage look while being bright enough to prevent your décor from appearing old.
A chest of drawers or armoire is a practical, underused item in the bathroom. It can store your towels and personal hygiene products so that they do not have to be in view. A dark wood armoire is perfect for a white bathroom as it brings depth to the color scheme while giving style to the surroundings.
Design a Vanity Area
If you have the space at your disposal, create a beautiful dressing table in the bathroom. Add antique charm by choosing pale floral wallpaper – this always strikes a note of vintage glamour. You can finish off the look with a small chandelier.
If you want a 1920s atmosphere in the bathroom, go big with your mirrors. Choose one (or two) with a vintage design, such as Venetian-inspired ones. Reflective surfaces for the vanity or bathroom armoires are also a great choice for instant glamour.
Relax and Unwind.
The bathroom is a great place for some relaxation. Get into the mood by bringing a pretty armchair and footrest into the room. An antique chair combined with an ottoman with wooden trimmings makes the space become charming.
Get an Interesting Shower Curtain
You’ll be amazed at how much just updating your shower curtain can do for your bathroom. As can be seen in the image above, a black-and-white shower curtain displaying New York brings the white bathroom to life, adding a regal yet modern feeling to the room. The colors in the shower curtain should be used to reflect your décor. For instance, in the image we can see that the grey works well with the mirror and livens up the neutral wall color.
