Finding the Best Antique White Bathroom Vanity

Forever a fan of both vintage and antique design aesthetics, there is one piece of furniture that I absolutely love and could not live without: an antique white bathroom vanity. Longing for both the visual appeal of a piece such as this, coupled with its functional elegance, you can imagine my excitement one day when I stumbled across one that I absolutely loved online. Reluctant to purchase at first, namely for financial reasons, my husband eventually came around and saw really what a great idea it would be to integrate a vanity furniture piece like this into our home bathroom.

Usually, it doesn't take much convincing for my husband to 'come around' or warm up to my ideas like these. ;) :)

No offense to our young son, but I just knew that our master bedroom on suite was definitely the perfect, most preferable, place in our home to place one of these antique white bathroom vanities. Only having owned ours for a few short months now, we just know that it is a matter of time before we purchase another one for, perhaps, our guest bathroom or even our first floor powder room.

Words cannot express just how much I love this type of furniture.

Relentless searching online, much to our surprise, led us to some really great, aesthetically pleasing, vanity pieces that we actually found on Amazon. Beyond our personal experience and love affair with this type of furniture, this article will also focus on some of the most attractive and versatile antique white bathroom vanities out there, and is intended to help you realize what you can find and narrow down your choices. I hope it helps you find a great antique white bathroom vanity of your very own.

Let's look at a few beautiful antique white bathroom vanities right now!

An Attractive Storage Solution

Like my husband and I felt, are you feeling like your sink and mirror combination isn't cutting it anymore? Storage space in the bathroom can be a major issue, especially if you want to be able to hide less attractive items or keep more than a toothbrush and a box of hankies in there. The bathroom vanity is a solution, but many are simply unattractive. Enter the antique white bathroom vanities! These pieces of furniture are lovely, attractive and functional solutions to your bathroom woes. They match a vintage or antique decorating style, and they are built to last.

Types and Options

When it comes to antique white bathroom vanities, you're going to be assaulted with choices. Since white is generally the most popular color choice for washroom decorating, you'll find most options come in that shade. As for the antiques themselves, there are as many options as there are eras of style, so you're going to have to be specific.

Since this type of furniture is pretty popular today, you can actually look for and find a pretty convincing replica or reproduction piece in many outlet stores. These are often high quality and made out of solid wood. This also saves you the 'antique paranoia' of trying to protect a hundred plus year old piece from water damage. Since your vintage bathroom vanities will be living near water, damage is inevitable.

Antique bathroom vanities will come in different styles, and can date back to almost any period that had access to running water. Before that, vanities weren't used for that purpose. Pick a time period that best matches your personal style, and look for one in that era.

Popular Styles

There are a few quite popular styles of antique white bathroom vanities available, and I'd like to list them here so you'll have a better understanding of the likely options.

French style vintage bathroom vanities are pretty popular, mostly because of the enduring popularity of french style furniture, and the fact that it looks excellent in white and will match a bathroom's color style quite well. The curved lines that are classically french will reduce the overall profile of the vanity, and it will help create an open and classy feel to the space. When looking for an antique white bathroom vanity in this style, a trademark to look for is the cabriole (or curved) legs.

Country style bathroom vanities are pretty popular too, considering the rustic look is coming back in a big way. Antique white bathroom vanities lend themselves very well to the country style, and the simplistic wooden doors and solid construction will give you an understated class to your bathroom, not to mention lots of room for storage.

Care and Considerations

If you're able to find a real antique white bathroom vanity, be careful to understand the risks. This is an antique, and you're placing it in the direct path of water. Chances are your piece will undergo some form of water damage over the years. I'd recommend finding something with a tile or granite top to avoid damaging the most used portion.

Also be aware that your antique white bathroom vanities may need to be altered to accommodate the plumbing hardware necessary to get the water running. Cutting is sometimes required!

Good luck in your search for vintage bathroom vanities!
