There are few environments as welcoming, unique and original as the rustic vintage bathrooms. We discover their characteristics and why they are always in vogue.
Perhaps, a priori, it is difficult to imagine the vintage and rustic style combined together. They are almost never used at the same time, in fact. Even less so when it comes to bathroom decoration. Yet, as you’ll see in this article, vintage rustic bathrooms offer a warm, intimate and welcoming atmosphere.
At the same time, this particular combination will make them one of the most original parts of your home. But how do you make vintage rustic bathrooms? To know how to do this, without making a mistake, all you have to do is read on.
Ideas of vintage rustic bathrooms for your home
1. Wooden and water green bathroom
We will see two ideas of vintage rustic bathrooms that you can easily insert in your apartment. In the first case, we propose you to set up walls in natural wood and choose furniture of green watercolor.
The rustic effect, of course, will be guaranteed by the use of this beautiful material of natural origin. A good alternative is to mount sheets of aged wood and classic appearance, with veins and imperfections. To protect them from moisture and give them a more attractive finish, you could give them a coat of enamel or lacquer. In specialist shops you will surely find excellent products designed to treat wood.
At the entrance to the bathroom you can see the logs that form the access area. A very rustic and natural touch that will make this intimate area warmer and more familiar.
Just notice: there is not a single rustic design element in the whole room, yet this decorative style is very much present. As for the vintage decoration, it automatically emerges thanks to the colour chosen for the furniture. This water green tone is reminiscent of the furniture of the ’70s and ’80s. In addition, all furniture elements have straight lines and simple shapes, which are also synonymous with functionality and practicality.
To create harmony throughout the space, we suggest you choose accessories and other elements in white and water green. In this way, everything is perfectly combined, starting with the mats, the toilet and the bathtub.
The combination of both styles results in an original space in which the rustic and vintage style come together perfectly, to create a different and very functional bathroom.
2. Rustic period bathroom with a worn effect
The second proposal to create vintage rustic bathrooms is only suitable for the most daring people. Looking at the image below, many might think that it is the bathroom of an abandoned house or that it is the set of some horror film. On the contrary, it’s a very practical and functional solution where you can easily combine rustic and vintage elements. The union between the two decorative styles is reflected in the choice of a dirty white color and the apparently neglected appearance.
The two main vintage elements are the chair and the bathtub. Both objects show curved lines and have their own personality. They are two decorative objects that do not go unnoticed and that play a very precise role, inside the bathroom. Other containers, stools and even a staircase, transformed into a towel rail, complete the furnishing of this highly original space.
As for the rustic style, it emerges from the floor weave, the glazed walls and the rigid shapes of the roof and windows. The floor is made of laminate parquet with an aged appearance that combines perfectly with all the elements and at the same time transmits warmth to the room. The wood in the ceiling almost acts as a mirror and bounces off this feeling of old-fashioned that welcomes those who enter.
Perhaps the boldest part of the whole room is the back wall. You can appreciate a dirty grey colour, painted on a first layer of white, which accompanies the shades of the other elements, such as the table on which the washbasin rests and the wrought iron armchair.
Considerations on vintage rustic bathrooms
Even if you are not used to seeing these two styles mixed together, as you can see, rustic and vintage can coexist perfectly. If you are looking to furnish your bathroom in a different, original way and with a more welcoming and particular touch, the combination of these two styles is what you need.
Questi due stili decorativi possono essere combinati in modi molto diversi e un chiaro esempio sono i due bagni che vi abbiamo poc’anzi mostrato. Ricordate di avvalervi sempre di elementi di unione come accessori, colori o materiali in grado di favorire entrambi gli stili. In tal modo riuscirete a conservare e favorire una certa armonia. Abbiate il coraggio di creare dei bagni rustici vintage perché, come potete vedere, i risultati sono assolutamente spettacolari.
