The farmhouse trend is all about bringing the outside in – and the coolest farmhouse bathrooms allow us to create the feeling of an old farmhouse. People are always looking to bring that farmhouse, country-feel into their bathrooms. But how can you create this look in your own home?
Creating this welcoming feel in your bathroom may seem like a lot of work – but once you start you’ll love it!
For a farmhouse look, you can’t go wrong with white. Its earthy, cottage feel is the perfect foil to your country farmhouse scheme. Alternatively, if you prefer a gloss finish, go for a bright scheme in pink, mint, lime or blue to really bring the outdoors in.
Walls & Storage
Fitted shelves are a big feature in farmhouse bathrooms, adding storage and drawing the eye away from less practical walls. Alternatively, simple freestanding walls are a great way to cover ugly and wonky bits, while also adding character to the space.
Adding storage is the easiest way to make a farmhouse bathroom feel cozy and welcoming. Once you have a storage solution that fits the space, you can experiment with adding more useful extras to add more visual interest.
Fitted wardrobes make all the difference in this regard. However, for a really authentic feel, you could even go for a storage unit fashioned out of a vintage cabin.
Traditional materials give a country country bathroom an instantly relaxing feel. Whether you prefer a traditional stone tiled splashback or a sleek chrome bath, there’s something beautiful about old-fashioned bathrooms.
A pair of reclaimed wooden candlesticks can make a dramatic statement in a farmhouse bathroom. Porcelain, tiling, handcrafted tiles, timber, exposed ceilings and light fittings create the ultimate country bathroom.
Building a farmhouse-style bathroom is as easy as a trip to your local craft store. You can decorate for the holidays with a cranberry colored tile for the bathroom walls and pewter colored porcelain tile for the floor. We also painted the walls and added pine trim and brackets to the cabinets to give our bathroom a true farmhouse look.
