Did you think that it is impossible to combine modern and classic styles? You are wrong. Give your bathroom a classic touch with a small wooden antique cabinet that houses the sinks. You can also use a wooden frame for our mirror. Small touches like this will create a classic look that still looks more modern rather than outdated.

2. Go all wood
