Farmhouse style kitchens are well known and a popular interior style option—but farmhouse bathrooms, which are relatively less known and not paid much attention to, are also a major element of any modern farmhouse style interior. And no, a farmhouse style bathroom does not have to be all wood and woe: we’re talking about a bathroom that’s clean in design, elegant in style, and rustic in décor. Modern farmhouse style has to be marriage of contemporary and modern elements, which gives rise to a bucolic and beautiful interior.
This blog will shed light on the many small details you need to nail in order to master the modern farmhouse style interior. Among the major elements which demand attention are the flooring, lighting, wall décor, accessories, and greenery.
The floor will make up the base of your bathroom and since it is a bathroom you should opt for tile or wood which is always the best option for bathrooms. Ensure that the tiles align with the walls. Patterned tiles are a great idea, but they should not be too intricately designed and heavy, bold colors should be avoided.
Dim lighting is the way to go for farmhouse interiors, and in a bathroom you can make use of unusual lighting fixture to generate the desired rustic effect. A unique and brilliant item for lighting would be this mercury glass pendant, which comes in a pair and sparkles when lit! However dim the lighting in the rest of the room might be, you must keep in mind that the lights above a bathroom mirror must always be abundant, since a bathroom mirror is used for makeup and morning rituals. Another great choice in farmhouse lighting is our new “Tractor Gear” lighting. Rustic in black iron, they look wonderful above a dual vanity.
When it comes to adding personality and character to your bathroom walls, you can do so by utilizing décor for walls. The walls of your bathroom are going to be mostly left barren and offer a great empty canvas for decorating: incorporate countrified and eclectic decoratives into the style. Use baskets like this one to store towels and have a unique looking hook for hanging. The only catch is avoiding overkill since the space must look clean.
Add further personality and elegance to your farmhouse style bathroom by accessorizing it with rustic and elegant items which look aged and used and which, while being perfectly practical, also bring a sense of age and patina to mind. Think of something like this delicate soap dish which looks like it could’ve been used by a country family in a cottage or this range of towels all clean and white and fit for a farmhouse style bathroom.
Finally, no farmhouse style interior is ever complete without pops of greenery—whether faux or fresh—which is why you should take care to have either a faux wreath somewhere in place or some planting pots instead. Bring a bit of the outside and the countryside to the interiors of your homes by incorporating greener, more natural elements and make your house look more in alignment with nature: because that makes up for a major element of farmhouse style interiors.
