Vintage bathroom designs, which are easily adapted to showcase the style of one or more eras, are equally at home in historical mansions, coastal cottages, city brownstones, and suburban ranches. Explore our vintage bathroom ideas to find inspiration for crafting bathrooms that spill over with collected charm and period-perfect profiles. See how beaded-board wainscoting separated from painted upper walls by substantial chair rails partner with floors crafted from tiny octagonal porcelain or marble tiles to set the stage for early-20th-century bathroom designs. Take vintage bathrooms retro by painting bathroom walls sunny yellow and adding aqua tile accents, fanciful 1950s fabric patterns, and black-and-white checkerboard or colorful linoleum floors. The quickest way to age modern baths? Move in vanities crafted from vintage dressers or antique sideboards, and use heirloom armoires or weathered farm cabinets for linen storage. Or choose stock or custom vanities and etageres that sport decorative moldings, raised embellishments, and distressed finishes. Learn ways to use vintage bathroom accessories -- such as cast-iron towel hooks, porcelain-handle faucets, and reproduction lighting -- along with antique bathroom fixtures like refurbished claw-foot tubs, pedestal sinks, and stainless-steel medicine cabinets to underscore a vintage bathroom's age-old leanings and ageless attitude.
