Hair can require a lot of maintenance. From gels, to hairsprays, to curling irons, to hair dryers, to diffusers — the list of hair products never seems to end. Most bathroom vanities aren’t set up for all this. Wires get tangled, countertops get burned — it’s a mess. After years of designing custom bathroom furniture, The Furniture Guild has a solution.
Black and white – Black and white tiles have long signaled that you’re in a traditional period bathroom. A border of black — on walls, the floor or both — adds a focal point and is elegant, timeless and chic. Also note how the vintage cast-iron radiator is painted to match. The console sink is another stylish traditional touch.

These designers started out designing many of their pieces with hair dryer ”holsters,” a lot like what you’d see at a hair salon. These were usually mounted on the back of vanity doors. But this particular dressing table doesn’t have any doors — there are only drawers — so they had to come up with another way for the client to store her hair dryer and curling iron.
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.
Vessel sinks are reminiscent of the wash basins of years gone by, but their technology is up-to-the-minute. They require surface or wall-mounted faucets like the ones shown here. To avoid excessive splashing, the faucet needs to be fairly high above the basin. This can be accomplished through careful placement on the wall or by using a goose-neck faucet.Seemingly floating on the counter, these glass sinks offer more than good looks and high style.
