If you’ve fallen in love with the aesthetics of a traditional bathroom, you might look at your own bathroom and think that it’ll never look quite as charming. But the good news is that there are plenty of ways to make an average bathroom into the classic powder rooms you see on Pinterest by channeling some of that style. Keep reading to discover three different ways to add a touch of tradition to your bathroom.
Start With the Right Lighting
You’ll want your traditional bathroom space to be bright, ideally with natural lighting from windows. If you have a curtained window in your bathroom, consider swapping it for stained glass or textured glass. These will still allow plenty of natural light indoors but give you the privacy you need.
Select Traditional Bathroom Features
While browsing Instagram and Pinterest for traditional bathroom inspiration, you’ll come across the same features in almost every image. A classic claw-foot tub is a must, along with matching fixtures and bold botanical wallpaper. You can add an extra touch of tradition with smaller accessories, such as a brass soap dish and containers to match. Brass and other metallic finishes are perfect for pulling all your accessory choices together into a cohesive traditional aesthetic.
If you’re having trouble incorporating the traditional aspects you desire with modernized fixtures and accessories, you should visit your local thrift store for pieces or inspiration. You might even find one-of-a-kind accessories and decorative pieces that will be just the touch you need. Look for ornate mirrors, decorative towels, bathroom dishes, bottles, and more.
Your dream of a traditional bathroom doesn’t have to be a dream anymore. With these ways to add a touch of tradition to your bathroom, you now know which pieces to incorporate to achieve a classic, traditional style.
