Antique Bathroom Vanity Cabinets

There’s something truly majestic about antique bathroom vanity cabinets, something that modern vanities simply cannot replicate. A long time ago, hardwood was the furniture material of choice. This was, of course, long before the proliferation of cheap plastic polymers. This was also long before the widespread adoption of the assembly line system. It was, simply put, a time when skilled artisans crafted their bathroom vanity cabinets entirely by hand, with skill and professionalism and artistry that modern machines can’t quite seem to replicate. And while many craftsmen imitated their works, they never made carbon copies. Because of this, all the bathroom vanity cabinets made during this time were unique, and had distinctive characters and personalities of their own. Because every vanity was different, the owners could take pride in knowing that their bath vanity was a one-of-a-kind work of art that would forever be a symbol of individuality and timeless beauty. 

A beautiful vintage bathroom vanity with hardwood cabinetsI remember being a kid and admiring the elegant bath vanity we had in our house. It stood about five feet tall, and it had a dark stained finish. The legs of the vanity so it still stands out in my memory some 30 years later. That’s what an antique bath vanity is supposed to do. It is supposed to leave an impression in your mind of a simpler time, even as it captures your imagination. When I walk into a room that has an antique vanity in it, for a moment in my mind, I can travel back to a time when things felt real, when things were all well crafted and handmade and genuine. A time marked by pride in ownership and pride in artistry, when an artisan could build bathroom vanity cabinets with his deft and professional hands.

Please don’t let me be misunderstood. I do not bemoan the assembly line and its impact on modern production. After all, thanks to assembly lines more people can afford great things like bathroom vanity cabinets. But I do know for a fact that quality was sacrificed in the name of progress for quantity. Having bathroom vanity cabinets helps me feel a connection to my ancestors in a way that simple photographs can’t quantify. It takes me to a place where there are no automobiles, no deadlines, and a man or woman could slow down and enjoy life to the fullest measure.

You should really think about investing in some charming bathroom vanity cabinets, if you’re like me and you believe that a great vanity is representative of its owner. A house is just a thing made of wood, brick, and stone. A home is a living thing that you bring life to with yourself, your family, and your furnishings.
