    Did you seal them for use in a wet area?

16. It can work as a vanity unitSideboards can work nicely in bathrooms too. The owners of this house not only used 1950s newspapers to decorate the walls, they also repurposed a sideboard to create a full-of-character vanity unit. You might want to call in a plumber for this job unless you’re a skilled DIYer.

15. Location: Bedford, WAWhy we love it: Who says that buffets only belong in a dining room? By turning an antique buffet into a vanity and adding a sky-blue enamel sink, the owners of this Bedford bathroom have created a show-stopping centrepiece.

7. BuffetThis antique buffet in rich, dark wood with detailed hardware has lots of drawers and doors to hide bathroom bits and pieces. A turquoise enamel sink is embedded in the top of the sideboard and its off-centre positioning places the plumbing behind one door, ensuring the drawers are still functional.

It’s not just mirrors that can heighten your bathroom’s style stakes. Old newspaper cuttings adorn this bathroom wall to give it a beautiful heritage look. It’s unlikely you can use wallpaper glue, so try using removable double-sided tape or Blu-Tack (again, do a patch test first).
