Bring 1950’s Glamour to the Bathroom with Bespoke Bathroom Furniture
If you’re a big fan of old Hollywood films, why not look to incorporate them into your home to create a glamorous yet practical 1950s inspired bathroom? With the right planning, you could look forward to an elegant bathroom, that would be a pleasure to prepare to go out and pamper yourself in. Here are our top tips for creating old-school glamour in your bathroom, no matter what the size or shape.
Glamour without fuss – Baths and showers
Consider opulence without the room becoming too fussy. You can still make bold statements and add some unusual touches, in an average sized bathroom. A roll top bath is fitting for 1950’s style glamour and you could colour co-ordinate it with the rest of the room. There are also some free-standing showers in the vintage style on the market but remember to go for the gold effect when it comes to glamorous tap fittings.
Sinks and storage
1950s porcelain basins were very robust features. Combine a polished marble surface around the basin with gold accents on mirrors and gold coloured taps. If considering gold coloured finishes on taps and other fittings, it’s worth spending a little more on the most durable options.
Don’t let the space around your sink go to waste though, with just a rail or curtain at the front. Under sink storage is a must, and there are some amazing 1950’s style pieces to draw inspiration from. Bespoke furniture would store all your skin care products and make-up. Think of the 1950’s charm of robust storage furniture, but updated for your needs.
For maximising storage, consider a bespoke size white medicine cabinet, with crystal knobs for a glamorous yet functional addition to the room. Don’t forget bespoke storage for cleaning products, toilet rolls and towels to match the other furniture.
Lights and mirrors
Positioning large mirrors so you can see the back of your hair is a must for your glamorous bathroom. A mirror ought to be an elegant feature so whether you want gold opulence, or a bevelled edged mirror really go for it here. A mirror could also be backlit for a glamorous atmosphere.
Lighting – other than a backlit mirror of course -could otherwise involve wall lighting on the left and right of a mirror. Do not neglect the ceiling lighting though. Consider a more rounded yet ornate light fitting that you could admire while bathing, and imagining yourself as the star of your own Hollywood movie!
Don’t be afraid of a little glamour – a 1950s inspired bathroom could allow you to look and really feel like a star.
