Whether you live in the country or in the middle of an urban neighborhood, a farmhouse style bathroom can provide a calm, relaxing atmosphere – exactly what you need for your at-home oasis!
Contrary to common belief, however, ‘farmhouse style’ doesn’t always have to mean rustic or weathered looking materials and decor. While these can certainly be included, there are plenty of modern elements that can be incorporated into a farmhouse style bathroom as well. In fact, some of today’s best bathroom designs combine both modern and traditional farmhouse features to create a comfortable but stylish space that’s functional and charming.
5 Farmhouse Style Bathroom Design Ideas You’ll Love
#1: Stunning Stonework
Using natural materials is a great way to get the country farmhouse feel but also add a touch of luxury. Take this master bathroom in Mission Viejo, for example. A stunning accent wall of 3D stacked stone makes a beautiful backdrop for the white garden tub and evokes a feeling of being close to nature. The stone also complements a wooden beam shelf and floating shelves that provide the perfect place to showcase decorative items.
#2: Rustic Wood Features
This same bathroom uses wood touches to further the farmhouse style look and feel. From dark wooden cabinets, wooden trim around the mirror, and wood flooring to a beautiful barn door entrance, this master bath has rustic features that pair perfectly with modern elements to create a luxurious spa-like atmosphere.
#3: Modern Fixtures With an Old-Fashioned Look
In contrast, this master bathroom remodel in Ladera Ranch takes on more of a modern farmhouse style. Take a look at the fixtures for the dual sinks – rather than being mounted on the sinks themselves, they’re wall-mounted against a stone backsplash. Their old-fashioned style combined with the dark, smooth stone uniquely combines rustic and modern elements. The soapstone look of the countertop and backsplash also contributes to the farmhouse style but they’re actually made of quartz!
#4: Shameless Shiplap
Of course, one of the most popular features in a farmhouse style bathroom is still shiplap. There’s just something about it that screams country vibe. But, in this bathroom, it also gets a modern flair when paired with the veined porcelain walls of the adjacent shower.
Shiplap also adds visual intrigue and versatility when used as a backsplash above the vanity, such as in this remodel.
#5: Freestanding Tub
What would a farmhouse style bathroom be without the perfect place to soak and unwind after a long, arduous day? If you have the space, installing a freestanding tub in your bathroom remodel is a great design choice. The tub itself can provide visual intrigue, such as an old-fashioned clawfoot style tub. Or, it can simply be part of a larger design, such as in this beautifully tiled wet room that also includes a shower and built-in wall niches.
#6: Antique or Repurposed Furniture or Fixtures
If you want to stick to a more rustic farmhouse style, there’s nothing wrong with adding something old that has a new purpose. For example, an antique freestanding cabinet can add some old-fashioned charm while providing valuable storage space. Or, a new trough-style sink and rustic lantern lighting can be useful ways to incorporate modern items that have an older look.
Regardless of whether you choose the traditional farmhouse style bathroom or more of a modern design, don’t be afraid to make it your own! After all, this is your space and your personal at-home oasis. A bathroom that’s stylishly functional and meets your needs is one that you’ll enjoy for years to come.
