As the temperatures drop and winter sets in, the idea of soaking in a vintage clawfoot tub in a cabin after a day of snowshoeing through the woods can be a warming thought. You don’t have to own an actual cabin to achieve that level of comfort. It’s possible to bring the cabin chic into your own home and decorate a vintage bathroom into the perfect winter retreat. Here are some tips for recreating the cabin atmosphere in your own home.
Use wood tones
The key to creating a cabin chic look in your bathroom is to use wood tones. The earthiness of different wood tones can provide your bathroom with that cabin feel. For a warmer look, use mahogany, red oak, or cherry wood tones. If you want a lighter, cleaner look, your best bet is to use lighter woods such as birch, pine, or hemlock.
Don’t go overboard with the wood. Remember, a little goes a long way and you can achieve that cabin feel with simple wood accents without the need to panel all the walls with wood. Instead, consider just adding wood panels to one accent wall.
Select gold, brass, and bronze for a vintage look
The type of wood you decide to use will factor into what material you select for the fixtures in the bathroom. Consider gold or brass faucets and other fixtures in your bathroom for a truer vintage look. Bathtub fillers in gold, brass, antique brass, or oil-rubbed bronze can really complement a clawfoot or pedestal tub.
The sink and bathtub can make the space
Nothing says vintage more than a clawfoot tub. Imagine soaking in your clawfoot tub with a glass of wine in one hand and a good book in the other as you let the stress of the day fade away. A pedestal tub offers a more contemporary look than a traditional clawfoot tub but the enjoyment level is equal.
Don’t forget to accessorize
Even the accessories you chose for your bathroom can give it that vintage cabin chic feel. Consider adding a tub shelf to your clawfoot tub or a vintage-looking soap dish by the pedestal sink. A towel warmer can have multiple purposes of being a classic decoration piece while also warming your towels on those cold winter nights.
You don’t have to have a cabin to have a comfortable space to relax and unwind. You can create a retreat in your own home that can be a warm getaway on a daily basis.
