Get an antique bathroom vanity for that personalized look

If you consider yourself a traditionalist, opting for an antique bathroom vanity for your renovation may just be the right choice for you.

A traditional style of living often involves decorating one's home with pieces that emulate furniture from the 17th to the 19th century, which were produced for the European upper class, according to Eco Furniture. Generally, this design aesthetic features the use of dark wood and elaborate carvings. Because of its elegance and formal look, the style has been favored by many for centuries.

Of course, opting for a traditional style in your bathroom can be a lot harder than it seems - after all, you can't really accessorize this space with furniture unless you want it to look like a parlor full of antiques. You can, however, choose an antique bathroom vanity as the focal point of your space, which will epitomize the look and feel of the traditional style.

Many antique bathroom vanities have a wooden cabinet as the body, created with everything from oak to birch. The sink is then secured with a top made from different types of materials like travertine, granite or marble.
