A vintage look can include horizontal fabric shades in a bathroom
Jan 3 2011
Creating a vintage look for a bathroom doesn't mean having to go to the expense of installing a classic, clawfoot bathtub. While that may be the ultimate in vintage bathroom design, there are easier and less expensive steps that can transport a bathroom into a bygone era.
Small touches can give a bathroom a vintage look.
According to RealSimple.com, placing an old wooden nightstand into the bathroom can provide storage for small towels or toiletries and a surface for hand mirrors, candles and accessories.
A sink skirt around a modern pedestal sink gives it an old-time look, and hides bathroom clutter. Toilet paper and cleaning supplies can be hidden by an attractive cover that coordinates with other colors in the bathroom, including those used for a window treatment, the website recommends.
Horizontal fabric shades are a good choice for this style of decorating. They have the look of a window shade, but the individual slats are reminiscent of a venetian blind. The range of fabrics, colors and print designs in horizontal fabric shades lend themselves to many choices for a vintage style.
Woven baskets to hold small towels and other bathroom supplies also give a classic look to their surroundings.
