1930’s doors, period features, art deco frames and mirrors, the 30’s Charleston and the ‘Speak-Easy’ all evoke a style from a time gone by. And in your home it’s a style that’s quite simple to re-create.
Everyone has their own personal tastes and preferences when it comes to their home décor. The good news is that there are now many different themes and design ideas you can choose from in terms of your home interior. One of the options many people find appealing and attractive is a vintage look, which is a great way to enjoy a stylish, timeless look when it comes to your interior décor.
Achieving a vintage look for your home interior is not as difficult as you might think, and there are many tips that can help. Some people want the entire interior to have a period finish while others prefer to confine this design to just one or two rooms. One room that many people love to have as their ‘vintage’ style room is the bathroom.
Creating a Vintage Bathroom
There are lots of people that love the elegance and timeless finish of a vintage bathroom, and it is so easy to create. A must for any vintage bathroom is a free-standing claw-foot bath, which creates an impressive focal point and looks stunning. Further, you don’t have to go to the expense of a cast iron bath, as there are some great vintage designs available that are made from modern and more affordable materials.
In terms of flooring, you can opt for a black and white tiled floor. But you don’t even have to go to the expense of real tiles, as you can get some superb quality tile effect vinyl floors these days. You can also look at other vinyl designs and effects to create a period feel such as marble-effect floors or stone-effect vinyls. All of these will fit in wonderfully with your vintage bathroom theme.
You can continue the vintage theme by carefully selecting the right cabinetry and door for your bathroom. When it comes to your cabinets, you can get some great ‘distressed’ effect cabinets that will look perfect. And if you want something that is elegant and chic, you could even opt for furniture such as an antique French style vanity unit or an antique style sink cabinet. Complete the look with one of a range of stylish 1930s doors to help create the perfect vintage finish. There are solid doors and fire doors. Also, there are frosted glazed options if you’d like more light on the landing. There’s even an unglazed option if you want your own bespoke glazing.
When it comes to accessories, be sure to add a vintage style mirror with ornate edging – a visit to local charity shops can turn up some real treasures when it comes to this type of accessory. In terms of lighting, you will find some fantastic vintage wall lights, which you can have around your vanity unit. There are also plenty of vintage light shades and pendants you can choose from for your main ceiling light.
Finally, we come to the fixtures and fittings such as door handles, taps, towel rails, and wall hooks. For these, choosing something in satin nickel, copper effect or brass can add that extra touch of vintage elegance to your stunning bathroom design.
By following these tips, you will feel as though you have stepped back in time every time you walk into your bathroom. While you relax in a vintage bath full of bubbles, you can admire the surrounding elegance and timeless beauty of your décor.
