Vintage bathroom vanities can add style and efficiency to your bath space. They're a great complement to just about any design style, and they offer a refuge for morning or evening primping rituals.

"Vintage" is generally defined as the era from the early 1920s through the early 1940s—although that can be a fairly loose definition; some consider "vintage" to mean anything more than 40 but less than 100 years old. Vintage bathroom vanities do in general reflect a "roaring 20s" furniture style, featuring elements from both the pre-industrial Victorian era, and the post-industrial pre-World War II era. For this reason, they hold a particular historical appeal, as they reflect the design style of a world in transition.

Natural materials are prevalent in vintage bathroom vanities, especially traditional hardwoods. They may also feature stone or granite countertops, and copper or porcelain sinks are quite common as well. Mirrors are often ornate affairs with grand frames of carved wood or sculpted metal—these can make a great focal point for the entire bathroom.
