Rustic décor style is very popular today, it’s sweet and cozy and even if you don’t want to go for a whole rustic interior, you can just infuse it with cozy rustic touches. If you have a rustic bathroom or just want to add some rustic elements to it, a rustic bathroom vanity or cabinet is right what you need.
Rustic bathroom vanities can have a vintage, industrial, modern or mid-century modern feel but it’s always a wooden one. You can make some yourself, or repurpose a wooden table, cabinet or sideboard into a cool vanity. The only disadvantage is that wood isn’t that durable, and moisture can harm it, and you can cover the countertop with stone, concrete or some other more durable material adding a touch of the style you want. Let’s have a look at some ideas that you can try for your bathroom.
Cabinetry And Vanities
If you want closed, hidden storage, then a cabinet or a vanity is your choice, it helps to visually declutter the space. It may be a reclaimed wood vanity with drawers and shelves, or a stained wood cabinet. You can take an old sideboard or table and repurpose it into a cool vanity with drawers changing handles. If you’ve chosen shabby chic style, it will be especially actual, and you may whitewash the piece. If you want a modern flavor, then you can make a reclaimed floating vanity, which will still add a cozy touch. Open shelving is useful for storing towels, soaps and other stuff. If you have a small bathroom, don’t go for a double vanity, make a small reclaimed wood cabinet with a sink on top and just some storage space or a drawer.
Open Vanities And Shelves
An open vanity is another great idea, it’s especially great because it looks more lightweight, and this is essential for a small bathroom, though it can be cluttered a little but you can handle it. An open vanity can have two or three surfaces for storing, and you may place there everything you want. For a shabby chic feel, you can cover the vanity with patina paint, or give it a worn look. For an industrial flavor, you can use pipes for legs or handles, and a stone or a concrete countertop will make the vanity modern. If you want to make your storage comfier, you can also place some baskets for storage on these shelves.
