1. Mixing the old with the new:
When creating your vintage style bathroom a good tip is to mix the old with the new. Old items such as second-hand mirrors can easily be picked up from second hand stores or flee markets and will add the touch to that vintage style bathroom design. (image via hegeinfrance)

 

 

 

   

A vintage dresser / sideboard can easily be upcycled to be a vanity. These examples ooze vintage industrial charm and can set the whole tone for the bathroom. To add the finishing touch you can incorporate some vintage industrial style lights. (images via lightheartedwoman and  french by design)

 

 

 

2. Use Vintage style lighting:
When designing a bathroom with vintage flair you need to take into account the lighting you are going to use. Lights make or break a room as far as a visual cue is concerned. For instance, you can go for a modern look bathroom with vintage accents by choosing lighting fixtures that have been designed in the vintage style such as these bunker lights. The modern sleek and industrial vintage elements tie together nicely. (image via remodelista)

 

     

3. Mix up your vintage styles:
Rustic country and industrial are a match made in heaven. A rustic style really allows you to be creative with your own DIY décor such as these bucket sinks. Industrial lighting, such as these cage industrial pendants, are the perfect pairing to give the bathroom an edge.

4. Don’t forget your accessories:
Be sure to use accessories that fit the vintage style you are trying to achieve for the bathroom. The industrial style wall lamps in this bathroom give it a modern edge while the claw foot tub with shower curtain and traditional tap ware round off the vintage charm. (image via Bloodandchampagne)
