If you are considering remodeling or redecorating your bathroom you do have to decide, to a certain extent, upon a basic design theme for it. While many people are choosing to go very hi- tech and contemporary by adding sleek new fixtures and replacing their bath with a generous walk in shower others still prefer a more traditional, vintage look. Vintage does not have to man antiquated though. Here are some ideas to help you create a vintage bathroom that functions as well as modern bathroom but still harks back to the best bygone eras had to offer:

Bathtub – If you are going to be creating a bathroom with a vintage feel the right bath tub is a must. If you don’t have the time – or the inclination – to go hunting through antique showrooms and junk yards for a real vintage bathtub there are a number of new bath tub designs available that mimic their ancestors perfectly including modern day takes on that most classic of tub designs, the claw foot.

FlooringCeramic tile really is the best choice for flooring in a vintage themed bathroom, but you can deviate from the classic black and white subway tile look (although it is gorgeous) To help make a small bathroom look larger choose a larger ceramic floor tile size, fewer grout lines to distract the eye means that the whole room looks and feels more spacious. Another nice touch for a vintage bathroom is the addition of a mosaic of some kind on the floor.

Window Treatments – Modern venetian blinds will look a little out of place in a vintage bathroom, Roman blinds may be a better alternative. Fabric draperies are another great looking choice but if your bathroom is not properly ventilated at all times you do run the risk that over time they will become magnets for mold and mildew.
