Most bathrooms are relatively small spaces and, as such, are often neglected when it comes to interior design. A well-decorated bathroom can create a warm, relaxing escape, however. A vintage bathroom style have an especially elegant, classy ambiance. There are several ways to create a vintage bathroom style. First way, paint the room in pale colours or neutrals with white or bone trim to match the porcelain fixtures. Shades of grey on the walls are stylish, but a faded pale pink, almost blush, is a timeless canvas for the rest of the decor as well. Use eggshell to avoid anything too shiny while still allowing for the walls to be wiped down. Then, hunt for an old medicine cabinet removed from a wall. You can find these at urban salvage shops, thrifts, flea markets or sometimes on the curb. The piece should be fairly distressed and may have some rust.
Replace tacky but not vintage fixtures with a deep old-fashioned porcelain reproduction sink and free-standing tub. Use reproduction faucets. By using reproduction pieces, you get the look without the possible cracking, peeling finish or ragged edges of real vintage fixtures. Opt for a high, old-fashioned toilet. Replace the hollow panel door with an old salvaged door and leave the salvage marks and scribbles on it. There were several ways to create a vintage bathroom style. After all, keep it simple. Use almost no decor but the old pieces and maybe a shelf for extra bathroom tissue and a few pegs for towels, made from old barn wood.
