Bathroom fixtures designs have come a long way. From the elaborate Victorian to a much simple yet sophisticated contemporary look. Easy to say, over the years, we have seen bathroom fixtures design evolved by leaps and bounds. But in spite of all the changes, there is one type of bathroom vanity design that remained popular and has withstood through time: the rustic bathroom vanity.
Commonly used as bathroom fixtures for log cabins and county homes, rustic vanities offer unique elegance and tranquil charm to the whole bathroom area. They come in different styles and designs, which can be used for any type of bathroom design, be it antique or contemporary.
Choosing the right rustic vanity for your home is essential as it serves as the focal point of your bathroom. Select one according to the type of wood that is compatible with the bathroom theme, the design and decoration of the piece, size, the countertop, and sink, finish, and price. There are certain types of wood that can truly capture the rustic look of bathroom vanities. Such are mahogany, cherry, and oak. When coated properly with wood sealant, these types of wood can last for a very long time.
The finish is as important as the type of wood used for the rustic vanity. This is because it protects the wood from water damages and gives it the rustic appeal. Some vanities are hand-painted with intricate designs, some are sanded for a smoother finish, and some are just applied with a wood sealant to achieve its most natural finish. Choose one that fits best for your bathroom design. Rustic vanities are made from wood but the countertops and sink are made from a variety of materials. Porcelain, ceramic, glass, metal, stainless steel, copper, and aluminum are some of the material used for vanity sinks; granite, wood, and other natural stones for the vanity countertops.
