Antique bathroom vanities offer a versatility that allows them to function well in both traditional and contemporary bathrooms. Their classic appearance adds elegance and style to any bath space, and they can also provide an efficient means of storage.
Choosing a style for your antique bathroom vanity will likely be defined by how closely you want the vanity to reflect the overall style of your bathroom. In general, "antique" suggests that a piece of furniture is—or appears to be, if it's a replica—over 100 years old. So if your bathroom is designed in a Colonial or Victorian style, you'll likely find a wide range of antique bathroom vanities that fit your design like a glove.
If your bathroom is designed in a more contemporary style, there's no rule against including an antique bathroom vanity—in fact, doing so can provide an interesting bit of visual contrast between the hard angles of contemporary design and the more flowing style of an antique vanity.
Once you've chosen the right style for your bath space, you should be able to find the exact antique vanity that fits your needs at any number of online retailers or local antique dealers; if you're going the replica route, you're likely to find something at your local home improvement or furniture store.
