Homeowners are drawn to vintage decor for a wide variety of reasons. Some homeowners like vintage decor because they remind them of a certain time period, while others may appreciate them for sentimental reasons.

Regardless of why a homeowner enjoys vintage decor, there’s no denying the fact that these heritage pieces can add personality and character to a residential space. And, when used correctly, vintage decor can transform the entire look and feel of a home.

There are several rooms that can benefit from vintage decor, including bathrooms with quartz countertops. Homeowners should continue reading if they’d like to get an inside scoop on the latest and most stylish vintage bathroom ideas that feature quartz countertops.

Why should homeowners consider adding quartz countertops to their vintage bathroom ideas?

Quartz is among the best bathroom countertop materials for several reasons. For starters, quartz has a classic, timeless appearance, which makes this surface work well in both vintage and modern bathroom designs. Quartz also comes in a variety of colours, finishes, and patterns, allowing homeowners to find the perfect match for their space.

However, this is just the tip of the iceberg; quartz has a wide spectrum of other beneficial properties, some of which include the following:

  • Durable 
  • Non-porous 
  • Easy to clean and maintain 
  • Stain, heat and scratch-resistant 
  • Supports a healthy environment 
  • Long-lasting quality 
  • Easy to install 

With all of this in mind, it’s easy for homeowners to see why quartz is a go-to countertop material for vintage bathroom designs.

The latest modern vintage bathroom ideas for residential spaces

When looking to renovate or redecorate their bathroom spaces, homeowners can feel free to draw on the following modern vintage design ideas.

Design idea #1 — White bathroom with rustic wooden decor

Nothing says “vintage” like rustic wooden decor. All of the grains, rings, scratches and other subtle details found in aged or upcycled wood tells of unique stories. These characteristics, along with its raw, unsophisticated beauty, make rustic wooden decor a must-have for homeowners that love vintage countryside designs.

Not to mention, the various shades of brown can offset the starkness of the crisp white bathroom, creating a potent, layered intrigue. Likewise, antique wooden pieces like vanity shelving, shower caddies or soap trays can add an authentic presence into the space.

Homeowners looking to give their bathroom a vintage style can start by integrating white quartz countertops, made with a product like Caesarstone’s 1111 Vivid White or 5143 White Attica. As mentioned earlier, quartz has a timeless appearance, making this material a practical addition to vintage bathrooms.

To create a cohesive look, homeowners can try brown quartz countertops. Brown quartz countertops are known to complement the dark tones in wooden decor (and vice versa). A popular type of brown quartz that works well in both vintage and modern bathrooms is Caesarstone’s 6338 Woodlands.

Design idea #2 — Brass accents and quartz countertops make for the perfect vintage bathroom

Adding brass accents to a vintage bathroom can make the space look like it’s straight out of the 40s, 50s or 60s (in the best way possible, of course).

Although brass is technically known for being a mid-century modern material, it is a fantastic choice for homeowners that want to give their bathroom a vintage aesthetic.

Brass works well with a variety of colours, making it a practical material for bathroom accents. However, homeowners who want to give their bathroom a truly vintage appearance should consider pairing their brass decor with beige quartz countertops, like Caesarstone’s 5220 Dreamy Marfil or 5212 Taj Royale. Nature-inspired hues, like 1001 Riverlet, can also do the trick.

Homeowners looking to take a bolder approach to their bathroom renovation project can also opt for a dark-coloured quartz, like Caesarstone’s 3100 Jet Black. For a truly groovy, vintage-inspired look, consider installing black-and-white checkerboard flooring.

Design idea #3 — Make sure to use the right types of vintage decor in the bathroom

When it comes to bathroom ideas, vintage decor has become quite popular; this can be a good and bad thing. Having the wrong type of vintage decor can give the bathroom the wrong “vibe” so to speak. Be sure to pick out pieces that coincide with the era or time period that the bathroom is inspired by.

For instance, homeowners who want a retro disco-inspired bathroom from the 70s should not incorporate vintage western decor from the 50s. Even though the latter is still “vintage”, it doesn’t align with the overall design.

Homeowners looking for noteworthy, yet practical design ideas for their vintage bathroom decor can consider going with one or more of the following:

  • Artwork 
  • Vanity mirrors 
  • Shower curtains 
  • Rugs or bath mats 
  • Lamps 

Additionally, homeowners that are using quartz countertops in their bathrooms should look for complementary decor pieces. For example, homeowners with neutral-coloured countertops, like Caesarstone’s 4003 Sleek Concrete, can look for vintage decor of the same (or similar) shade. Doing so adds a cohesive feel to a vintage bathroom design.
