Relax in the Quaint Charm of a Farmhouse Bathroom
A popular design aesthetic due to its vintage charm, warmth, and welcoming look, farmhouse style in the bathroom evokes simpler times, comfort, and relaxation. When it comes to remodeling your bathroom, you can't go wrong with adding a touch of farmhouse flair to your space whether you live in a country cottage or a loft apartment in the heart of the city.
More than just shiplap and timeworn, weathered pieces, farmhouse-inspired design in the bathroom can encompass a variety of looks. It can be classic, shabby chic, streamlined and simple, full of modern and industrial twists, earthy appeal, or full of rustic elements that make you feel at home.
Farmhouse-style bathrooms are relaxed and cozy, using unpretentious materials and soft colors for a casual, lived-in appearance. You can choose a vanity in warm, natural wood tones, painted in white, sage, or cornflower blue, or opt for a vintage-style porcelain pedestal sink for a retro look with an authentic historical vibe. Or, you can repurpose an antique dresser and turn it into a one-of-a-kind vanity with a story to tell.
Victorian-inspired fixtures with cross-style handles enhance the effect, or you can modernize your plumbing with state-of-the-art fixtures with sleek lines and warm metal finishes. Wood, stone, copper, or concrete work well for your counters to add a rustic or industrial-inspired element. If you tend to like more sleek and modern, quartz or granite is a popular choice. Indulge in the luxury of a freestanding tub in a vintage clawfoot design or a classic slipper design with a pedestal base. Penny tile mosaic flooring and subway tile in the shower or on the walls helps create a look that's timeless.
Don't forget some soft-to-the touch textiles with plush, woven area rugs, turkish towels, and a cozy robe hung on a hook near the tub. Add curtains with a country flair in crisp cotton to keep the style light and breezy.
