Vintage bathroom sinks are a great option if you're looking to add some style and visual interest to your bath space.

One of the more popular vintage bathroom sink styles is the farmhouse sink. These large, deep sinks can accommodate a high volume of water and offer a rustic look. They're available in a wide range of materials, from porcelain to cast iron.

5 Budget-Friendly Bathroom Makeovers

Before: Not-Bad Before

Sleek and stylish, this master bathroom looks like an "after" before the makeover even begins. The space includes all necessary amenities but in HGTV fan isabellaandmaxrooms' own words, it "lacked personality."

After: Even Better After

Just a few key but relatively inexpensive updates make a dramatic difference. By simply updating the room's paint, lighting and accessories, the homeowners made a good thing even better. Design by HGTV fan isabellaandmaxrooms.

Before: Blast From the Past

Honey oak cabinetry and hunter-green tile were all the rage — 30 years ago. HGTV fan nesting has some work to do to bring this bathroom into the 21st century.

After: Charming Transformation

For less than $500, HGTV fan nesting completely changed the look of this bathroom. Beadboard wainscoting, a crisp, white tile countertop and several gallons of paint are to thank for the makeover. In her own words, when you're on a budget, "paint is your friend."

Before: Dark, Dated and Dingy

A jetted tub is a luxurious feature in any bath, but this tub with dated green ceramic tile and dingy peach surrounding walls doesn't look like a tempting spot for a long soak. Photo by HGTV fan mamma4x.

After: Spa-tacular Transformation

HGTV fan mamma4x completely changed the look of the tub area with a charming cottage-style makeover. In her words, "This is the master bath in one of the houses that I flipped. Everything from the chandeliers to the marble floor was done for less than $1,000."

Before: A Leaky Mess

Yuck — not exactly spa-like, a leaky shower in HGTV fan Designgrl's bathroom needed immediate attention. Removing the existing none-too-fabulous tile was necessary to make repairs.

After: Sleek and Clean

After: Timeless black-and-white tile and shiny, new fixtures update this bathroom on a budget. Although the finished shower looks like a million bucks, HGTV fan Designgrl saved thousands by doing the work herself. She spent only $800 on materials to retile both the shower and bathroom floor. Surprisingly, she reports that this was her first time tiling. Looks like a job well done!

Before: Shabby But Not Chic

Cramped, bland and a bit neglected, HGTV fan jupiter926 actually used the term "gross" to describe this bathroom. We don't think it's quite that bad — but it could definitely use a makeover.

After: Minty Clean

A tranquil green wall color is a refreshing change and gives the room a spa-like feel. A pedestal sink, in place of the pressboard vanity, takes up less space both visually and physically, making the room seem larger. Design by HGTV fan jupiter926.

Vintage pedestal sinks are another common option. These slim, convenient sinks stand upright on a pedestal base, making them optimal for bathrooms where space is an issue. They were especially prevalent in the post-war years, and can even be found in a range of retro pastel colors.

When shopping for a vintage bathroom sink, keep in mind that a vintage-style sink doesn't necessarily have to be a true antique. Retailers of authentic vintage sinks are plentiful, but if having the genuine article isn't a priority, you'll find replica sinks in vintage or antique styles at many home improvement stores.
