One of the many things I love about this bathroom is how well the light fixtures coordinate with the double-sink vanity. The overall effect gives it an elegant vintage modern look. These square bowl sinks can make a tight counter seem larger because they are clear. Although these bowl sinks don’t allow for much counter space, the medicine cabinets and drawers underneath provide plenty of space to keep things close at hand.
Mop bucket – Skip the online shopping and dive into your cleaning supply closet instead. With a hole drilled into the bottom, a metal mop bucket can make a great sink. Keep the theme going and use the bucket handle or a mop handle as a towel rack in the same room.

The small detail of cantilevered vanity keeps it from looking clunky. If you have an outdated vanity, look closely at the hardware on this unit. A coat of paint and new hardware can bring your bathroom up to date. This vanity keeps the bathroom looking much more open. In order to have a look like this work, you will need storage elsewhere in the bathroom. One thing I suggest is seeing if your contractor can install a closet or a nook large enough for towels and toiletries in the bathroom wall. Sometimes you can borrow the space from a bedroom closet that backs up to the bathroom.
Each of these sinks includes a towel bar that also acts as a guard to prevent contact with the chrome pipes, which can get very hot when you’re running extremely hot water. These wood sinks are naturally gorgeous. That is, their appeal comes from the natural beauty of the wood grain. It might sound surprising, but with the right finish, wood sinks can last for generations. Most finishes need to be reapplied periodically, often every year.
Wainscoting – Vintage-style wallpaper paired with tongue-and-groove wainscoting gives this compact bathroom a cozy atmosphere. Also note the toilet with a high tank — a classic historic design. Swap slick modern spotlights for a decorative chandelier, like this brass number, to keep things traditional. Claw-foot tub – A rolled-edge, claw-foot bathtub is a timeless luxury. For an indulgent, traditional look, combine it with wallpaper, plantation shutters and a marble-topped vanity. Painting the sides of the bath a dark color, like this French navy, adds a period detail.
