Vintage Style Bathroom Decorating Ideas & Tips
Transforming your bathroom so that it has vintage styles will take some time and effort, but if you research which elements are great and which you can use with to combine with your overall design, it will be a cinch. Though, make sure that you do not overdo it, as it could end up looking bad and forced.
Mirror On The Wall
One way to make some room in your bathroom, and to add some charm to it is to install a few vintage mirrors. Though, you should be careful as some can be bulky and oversized, so be sure that you have enough room in your bathroom, and of course that it does not overtake every element. However, combining a few smaller ones will give you the illusion that your bathroom will seem bigger and more spacious.

Choose Your Entrance
You should not forget to decorate your bathroom entrance door either, as it will be a good way to really add some style. Choosing from doorknobs to install should not be rushed, as you should look into which ones can be fitted with your existing door, and whether or not it will take a lot of effort. On the other hand, this will be a great chance to even replace your door, and to make it more in-style with your vintage style bathroom design.

Use Old Suitcases For Decor
Vintage can be understood with many forms, and you should not be aiming for the Victorian style only. If you have some old suitcases lying around your home, turn them into small accessory holders, or even an addition to your overall decor. Guests will love it just as much as you are going to, and you will be able to save some space in your bathroom as well. Though, make sure that you do not use too old ones, as the material could fall apart easily.
