Antique style furniture has always been a crowd favorite when looking for a remodel or to bring new life into an existing space. With the bathroom space, incorporating antique style designs and décor into the space will create a grand sense of flair and sophistication. If done correctly, an antique style bathroom will be the awe of your friends and family.
Antique bathroom vanities typically have ornate features such as finely carved wood designs and clawfoot style legs. They are as much a piece of art as any painting or tapestry you would hang on the wall. If accented with a natural stone top, these artworks will be the focal point of your bathroom remodel. Avoid using a vanity that isn’t made of solid wood as they lack the quality and wood grain that make a basic vanity timeless. On top of that, the trick is to compliment your bathroom vanity with décor and pieces that are simpler in nature so your space doesn’t become too gaudy or ornate. Painting the walls soft colors or light textured wallpaper will meld two styles together and creates a more transitional space that is serene yet sophisticated.
Completing the room with matching linen cabinets and mirrors will create a cohesive style that looks well thought out and planned. If space and personal tastes allow, consider an antique reproduction bathtub such as a clawfoot or Swedish-soaking bathtub to compliment your Old World taste.
