How to create a vintage style in the bathroom

According to the designers, the use of furniture and other elements made in the same style is a mistake. If in one room to collect all the antiques, it will resemble a museum. In this respect, the vintage bathroom style is more democratic than the retro style. Here you can combine antiques with modern elements.

The flooring in the bathroom you need to choose wood. It should be scuffed and worn. No ceramic tiles on the walls! For painting the ceiling and walls used water-based paint. To diversify the ceiling a little, whitewash is applied, which has a rough texture, as if it was walked on with a paintbrush.

Light mess and clutter are artificially created, the room should be perfectly clean.

When creating an interior in vintage style, you should very carefully select finishing materials. Monochromatic putty is used to cover the walls. After that, the walls are painted in warm bed colors. Moisture-proof wallpapers that are decorated with large flowers are suitable for wall decoration.

Remember, you only need to choose one finish. Combine several types of finishing materials in this style is impossible. Furniture is selected depending on the style of wall decoration. Furniture must be made in the old style. In that case, if the wallpaper is used as a decoration with a large floral ornament, the furniture should be simple, painted white and aged. If the walls are plain and painted, the furniture should be dark in color, decorated with curly cutting. You can use the furniture in retro style.
