How to Create a Vintage-Style Bathroom


image-5When redecorating their house, most people neglect small bathrooms. Those that are courageous and brave enough to go for a bathroom redesign know that it is going to be hell of job, which will pay off in the end. A well decorated bathroom creates a warm and relaxing spot where you can escape all your life’s problems. Listed below are some of the things you can do to create that vintage bathroom you’ve always dreamt of.

Invest in decorations

The best way to start transforming your bathroom is by purchasing some of those old and vintage accessories. A good place to look for them is your local thrift shop. Also, if you are lucky, you may end up finding good stuff at garage sales. Try and get those small luxurious details that will reflect the style of your bathroom. Remember that small things make a difference, so the more you invest into details, the better your bathroom will look.

Mirror, mirror, on the wall

Can it even be possible to redecorate your bathroom without throwing in one of those old, long mirrors, with regal frames and old forest-green or vanilla blue hues? Vintage mirrors are hard to come by these days, especially since their demand is high and their rarity makes them very expensive. Framed mirrors can cost whole fortune, since sometimes the frame itself is worth more than the entire bathroom redecoration. So choose wisely, and do your research before you rush in and purchase the first mirror that you find on the market. Take your time and be patient, other good offers may be just around the corner.

A vintage sink

My guess is a local thrift shop, or any place that sells old and vintage items. Sinks are also hard to come by, which is why you should be patient and look for it months before you even start redecorating. It may take months, even years to get one that fits your envisioned bathroom perfectly.

Fix the plumbing

Depending on how old your home is and when the last time was that you redecorated it, you might want to check your plumbing. These old pieces of metal tend to get rusty and create leaks. Even the smallest of leaks can cause the biggest of problems, without you even noticing it. Take action, and do a complete plumbing inspection. In case you are not qualified enough to do it yourself and are in need of a professional plumbing services, the best place to check for it is at Once hired, the team of experts will be at your doorstep in no time. They are available 24/7, and are the best in the business.

Consider replacing the floor

Believe it or not, but the tiles, especially the hexagonal ones are as vintage as it gets. You can mix them with some other styles, but keeping them in plain white or any bright color is probably the smartest option.

Redecorating the bathroom should be as important as redecorating any other room inside the house. Spend some extra money and create your safe haven, one that you will enjoy every day and one where you will retreat every time you are in need of a hot shower and relaxing atmosphere.
