Mexican Style Bathroom Cabinets and Vanities | Antique or Not?

by THAT Painter Lady

Bathroom cabinets with a Mexican or rustic style are hard to find.

I would like to find an antique cabinet… just the right size for 2 sinks and in great shape that I could refurbish with sinks and a counter.

Just try to find that without paying a mint in pesos!

I ran into a similar problem when remodeling the guest bathroom.

Mexican Bathroom Vanities

I needed the cabinet to be a specific height and width. And… I wanted it to look like an old Spanish style homes relic.  Easy… NOT!

Spanish Style Bathroom Vanity

I had that bathroom cabinet custom built. It does look like an antique chest from deep in Mexico. But… it cost the moon.

Now… I need a vanity for the master bathroom remodel, with the same specifications.

I want it to look like an antique hacienda style piece of furniture, but I need it to be a specific height, width and length. This time, it needs to be a double sink.

Mexican Bathroom VanitiesI know I could use two single sink Mexican Bathroom Vanities like this one, but the Spanish Hacienda style calls for larger furniture.

This Carved Mexican Vanity would be perfect for those that are looking for a hacienda single wood bathroom vanity

I love the way this  vanity is carved – haven’t found it in a double sink size.

The cabinet pictured at the top of  this page – is one that does resemble and antique sideboard. The two rounded bow fronts are really nice looking and it just looks like a piece of furniture.

Travertine Vanity topConsidering that I may use  natural colored stone for the floors  it would look great if I find tile that doesn’t clash with the Travertine Marble top that comes with this vanity.

The faucets do not come with this Spanish Style Bathroom Cabinet… but with the cabinet, counter and sinks all included… it’s a deal.

Here is another bit of information about choosing a genuine or imitation antique bathroom cabinet:

Hacienda Style BathroomChoosing antique bathroom vanity is a serious matter though. You simply do not go in a shop and but the first piece you see. Selection involves factors such as price, design, functionality, type of wood, age, and even the manufacturer.

Basically, when selecting the piece, you are caught between this question: “Should I go for the genuine vanity or should I buy antique design vanity? Unsuspecting buyers may think that every vanity, as long as they look “antique” is the same. The truth however is that both have different qualities.

So what’s the difference between authentic antique vanity and antique-design vanity?

Try Tres Amigos. I have brought several sideboards and have converted them into bathroom vanites from there. Otherwise you could try El Paso imports

That is one stylish vanity cabinet. I recently upgraded my bedroom vanity and boy do I wish I had stumbled on this sooner!

Definetly a stylish cabinet that is worth thinking about when trying to design your bathroom. The spanish style will make any bathroom stand out I’m sure but I think that the only problem people might have is finding other furniture for their home to fit. Either way it’s a great idea if someone is looking to spice up their bathroom design and add some Mexican design and style into their home.

Good post, keep it up!
