If you’re looking for bathroom vanity ideas that bring a bit of old world charm into your bathroom then a rustic vanity is a good place to start your research. And our selection of rustic bathroom vanity ideas will suit many different types of bathroom design.
In a classic story of everything old is new again, rustic design is as popular today as ever. Rustic style is all about warm woods, organic textures, and the art of repurposing. However, your home doesn’t have to look like a log cabin in the mountains to evoke a feeling of times passed. As long as there’s a bit of patina and hint of distressing, rustic design can also be achieved in a more modern setting as these rustic vanities for the bathroom demonstrate.
If you’re looking to add a bit of rustic charm to your house it may sound a little strange to start in the bathroom, but the bathroom is great place for experimenting. There isn’t a lot of square footage, and a touch of rustic style can go a long way. The bathroom has several fixed elements, such as the bathtub and shower, and the vanity acts like a piece of furniture that can add rustic style and charm to your space.
Rustic bathroom vanity cabinets, desks, shelves, and even dressers can all work equally well. And because rustic design melds so well with other styles such as vintage and industrial, materials like concrete and rough-hewn wood fit right in. Contrasting rustic elements with more classic ones, such as subway tiles and modern fixtures creates even more interest.
Take a look at the following rustic bathroom vanity ideas to see how you can add the charm of yesteryear to your home, in a way that’s updated for today.
