Outfitting your dream farmhouse bathroom

Farmhouse-style bathrooms bring together rustic and natural elements with a vintage flair.  Reminiscent of the quaint farmhouses and barns of days gone by, this style can bring a relaxed, inviting feel to bathrooms. From wallpaper and accessories to lighting and fixtures, there are many ways to display farmhouse style in bathroom spaces.

Farmhouse bathroom elements

Reclaimed wood and tarnished metal accents feature heavily in farmhouse bathrooms. Vintage wall fixtures, rusty-looking copper tubs, barn door-inspired mirrors, distressed wood vanities and farmhouse sinks are all popular farmhouse bathroom elements. 

Keep in mind that farmhouse style is subtle and practical bordering on minimalist; think neutral tones including white, black, brown and gray, milk jug vases, mason jar toiletry storage and other creatively repurposed items. 

Traditional wood wall paneling, distressed shiplap, exposed brick walls and nature-inspired wallpaper are great for adding character and style to the room. Dark wood flooring and tiles in black and white or slate gray contribute to the rustic feel, as well.
