A Gorgeous Selection of 20 Rustic Bathroom Vanities

The beautiful, natural look of a rustic decor theme is one that is classic and will always be one of the most popular decorating themes for many homeowners. The use of certain materials, along with decorating pieces that carry an aged, weathered, distressed or are handcrafted, all offer a unique look for any room in your home, including in the bathroom. The modern rustic look is a trending decor style these days. You can create any degree of a rustic look to your bathroom, from a simple rustic look, or go all-out and have the bathroom reflect a rustic look, from floor to ceiling and everything in between. One way to help get this beautiful look in your bathroom, is to install a beautiful rustic vanity. Whether you opt for a single or double vanity, there are many different looks and styles to choose from; including pre-made rustic vanities, to designs you can create yourself, if you are a DIY kind of person, know a little about plumbing, and love being creative. Here are a few ideas to help you choose the perfect rustic vanity for your bath.

Choose your style of rustic look

Rustic looks vary, which means that you can decorate with your own take on the rustic look. It’s a good idea to familiarize yourself with some of the versions of rustic looks, like the old vintage style, mid-century rustic style, even the industrial rustic style. You may prefer to mix and match some of each look to create a unique rustic motif for your home or bathroom. Knowing what your preferred style is can help you shop for a vanity in that style, or if you decide to design and build one yourself, it can help you with design ideas.

Consider your flooring

If you already have your flooring laid, consider the type of flooring you have when choosing a vanity. You’ll want the look of your vanity to flow with your flooring choice, which in many rustic bathrooms may consist of wood or tile. If you haven’t laid flooring, you can work with both, choosing the flooring and vanity together to create a great rustic look. One way to give a bathroom a more dramatic look is to combine flooring materials, for instance, wood flooring intermingled with areas of pebble flooring is a warm, yet dramatic look that really creates a “wow” factor for a rustic bathroom.

Rustic vanity design ideas

Reclaimed wood – If you love old vintage style chests, consider using a distressed, (or distress it yourself), old chest as a beautiful vintage styled vanity. Distressing wood is fun for the DIY’er and can give you the control to decide just how distressed you want it, as well as if you want to stain the wood to match the color scheme in your bathroom. You also have the fun of choosing the type of sink and fixtures you want. You can create a modern rustic look by choosing a modern sink bowl that sits on top of the chest, then pair it with steel fixtures and hang a beautiful wood framed mirror above to complete the look of the rustic style cabinet vanity. Distressed vintage style chests can also give you the added benefit of having a little storage space for towels and other items.

Re-purposed wood – Re-purposed wood can be a small old dresser or cabinet with drawers. It can also be an old butcher block or anything that can act as a vanity that can be re-purposed into something new, like a rustic looking vanity. For storage space, and old cabinet works great since you can get the use drawers for storing bathroom items. Re-purposing can be an easy project of sanding down old, chipped paint and re-varnishing it and applying a coat of lacquer. It can be fun to antique shop, or hit yard and estate sales to find an old cabinet that could use a little work but would retain the distressed look of a rustic piece that could be converted into a cool vanity.

Mix elements – If you want to bring an entirely unique look to your rustic bathroom, try mixing and matching elements for your vanity. For instance, metal and wood work great together in this design style. One way to achieve a mix-matched vanity that screams “rustic” is to use a wood base for the vanity and metal basins or buckets for the sink(s). Old tin buckets definitely capture the rustic look and feel. Another way to mix and match might be to create a wood base and add rustic looking hardware for drawers or just decor pieces. A concrete metal counter is a modern touch along with modern counter-top sinks, but paired with steel fixtures, you get a nice combination of decor elements. Combine this look with a metal framed mirror and hand towel rack and you have a great rustic look that incorporate a little industrialism, modernism, and rustic decor.
