Vintage and Retro Style Bathroom Ideas
Whether you are updating your bathroom or starting from square one, vintage or retro decoration can help with the style you are looking for. Popular vintage items and accessories generally refer to an era that dates back to 1920s, while retro style represents the style of the 80s or 90s. Both offer an artistic, classic, and beautifully worn out tone, and when combined with modern and contemporary elements, they represent a mixed and contrasting, even more artistic approach.
Vintage or retro style bathrooms are all about simplicity. So if you are remodeling your bathroom, your job is actually pretty simple. You do not need a huge space or lots of accessories to add a retro style: you just need simplicity with a warming touch.
One of the most important elements of a vintage or retro bathroom is undoubtedly the bathroom tiles. There are obviously many options to choose from, but we suggest going with matte green or pink shades since they will instantly add vintage kind of style to your space. Check out the below pictures and you’ll agree.
If you want the style to be really out there, opt for roll-top bath – one of the must-haves in a retro style bathroom. You can choose a classic white one or go with soft, neutral tones.
Wainscoted walls – or wood paneling – definitely give that vintage look! Again, choose classic white or opt for neutral tones. Alternatively, you can use bathroom tiles that go half way up the wall. Simple and vintage.
Rustic and antique (or antique looking) accessories also come in handy when redecorating with a retro style. Stop by the flea market and you’ll find amazing stuff such as toiletries as well as wall arts that will go with the new style of your bathroom.
