Vintage Bathroom Décor: An Overview

Vintage doesn’t mean dated. There’s a fine line between a space that looks old, and a space that reinvents iconic trends. Take a soft, vintage approach and add calming details like fresh-cut flowers and opulent scented candles. Don’t be afraid to use color in a vintage bathroom, as a neutral color palette tends to be synonymous with stark modernism. Vintage interiors are all about being cozy, which means plush textiles and putting personal accessories on display.

Expert Vintage Decorating Tips

ElephantStock's interior design expert Elimar Lobo Sáenz explains trending vintage room décor:

“Marble and travertine are two traditional materials that have made a huge comeback. Add antique furniture and scalloped details for a truly vintage touch. Consider a credenza or vanity made of burlwood to add a splash of classic character. Don’t forget the impact antique lighting can have on your bathroom. Edwardian holophane lights are all the rage for 2022.”

Small Vintage Bathroom Ideas

If you happen to have a compact-sized bathroom, don’t fret! You can still apply these vintage trends and make the most out of your small space. They key is to only display the elements you want to showcase. While contemporary décor is all about practicality and functionality, vintage décor is primarily focused on decoration and aesthetic. That means you should hide your products that aren’t visually pleasing, and feel free to show off pieces that are only for looks. Smart storage is essential to making a small bathroom work. Keep your storage low-profile to give yourself more freedom with the more playful décor. If certain furniture pieces look too modern and you don’t want to do a full renovation, consider a vintage cloth or tapestry to cover or distract from the modern base.

Combine Modern & Vintage Style in Your Bathroom

If you just want to dip your toe into the vintage décor pool, there are several ways to seamlessly blend trendy and traditional styles. You can easily incorporate vintage elements while maintaining a contemporary space. Play with sleek, sophisticated surfaces and be selective with your décor to avoid a cluttered look. An easy and affordable way to tie together vintage and modern styles is by hanging a piece of wall art that hints at both the past and the present. Curated by our art director, Tirzah Goodman, our “humorous typography” collection is full of cheeky prints that combine vintage patterns with modern text. If you consider yourself a daring designer, this print will undoubtedly catch the attention of your guests.

Retro Bathroom Trends & Ideas

While Mid-century modern may have had a huge comeback last year, 2022 is about to revive different retro trends from the Mid-century. Floral prints are huge for this upcoming year, especially those that were popular in the 50s. You can’t go wrong with floral details in your bathroom. Bring back the 1980s with dusty rose and mauve color palettes, and stray away from strictly silver hardware.

70s Bathroom Décor

The fun, fabulous 1970s are back in a big way. The warm color palettes of the 70s are a huge 2022 trend. Add 70s-inspired, organic details to your bathroom. Wicker baskets and macrame accessories are the perfect way to add a vintage touch that still looks stylish.

Bathroom Wall Art Ideas

If you’re working on a tight budget, you can still create a vintage vibe in your bathroom. The easiest way to introduce a vintage energy to your space is by hanging a classic piece of wall art. Artwork can create a classic appearance with low-cost and low-commitment. To make your canvas really pop, hang it against a colored accent wall in a vintage hue like rose, sage, or mustard. Celebrate the art of bathing with a print that explores the history of self-care. Pull colors from your wall art of choice and add décor that complements your canvas.

White Décor for Your Bathroom

If you have a white-based bathroom, that doesn’t mean you can’t add vintage pieces. To continue the trend of blending modern and classic décor, consider wooden details and vintage patent print for a timeless look. If you have the ability to change your paint color, an off-white or ivory will create a more classic look as opposed to stark white. Dried flowers and vintage perfume bottles will work with a modern atmosphere and add the perfect amount of color to a white space.
