There is nothing like taking a nice relaxing bath when you get home after a day of work, especially if it has been complicated and stressful. That is why we like it so much that in this private and intimate room in the house you breathe serenity and relaxation. And if you like retro, a vintage-style bathroom will be perfect for you. Today we explain some decorative keys with which you can get the perfect vintage bathroom. Take note of them!
It all depends on how much you want to reform the bathroom in your house. You may be rebuilding it completely or you just need to add some decorative details. Either way, you can make some of these ideas (or all) yours to improve your environment.
One of the great features of vintage decoration is the intimate atmosphere that manages to create regardless of the dimensions of the room.
The colors that can not miss on this type of decoration for the bathroom are the beige, white and, in general, light colors, but always with a pastel hue. With these sweet shades get an effect, intimate and give a vintage and classic touch that we are seeking.
Classic lines and worn in furniture
As for the furniture, must be classic lines, preferably in stripped wood or worn effect, and all gold details. Towel rails, soap dishes and other decorative element must also be of this tone.
As for the mirror, which is always the king of the bathroom and one of the most essential, we have to look for one ornate, rococo style and, above all, large size.
But undoubtedly the main vintage touch to the bathroom will be a large and oval tub, of which we have seen over and over again in movies and TV series and have become a must of decoration in recent years.
Floors in earthy tones and with hexagonal shaped tiles
If we have enough space in the bathroom, we can also put a chest of drawers on which place the mirror and where we have all the necessary elements to make do after the shower.

Wallpaper also in the bathroom
Is there anything more vintage than wallpaper? I do not believe it. It is the perfect decorative complement to give a retro air to any space.
