Elements of a Farmhouse Style Bathroom


Here are some ideas for popular elements you’ll find in many farmhouse-style bathrooms. These are the standout design features that tend to really show off the style and define it.

1. A Mix of Modern and Rustic

Mix modern touches with rustic elements to keep things from crossing too far into country cottage or shabby chic. Think natural elements, textures, and wood with elegant light fixtures or sleek tiles.

A sliding barn door is a popular choice, and a great way, to bring in the modern farmhouse feel.

2. Use Clean Lines

Go with straight, sleek lines throughout the space. Avoid overly ornate patterns or large, curved edges. This is often where the white shiplap walls tie in the farmhouse charm.

3. Incorporate Reclaimed or Exposed Wood

Use reclaimed wood as a feature on a wall or show off beautiful exposed wood on the ceiling. Blending these rustic touches with a bright white tile is a match made in modern farmhouse heaven.

4. Opt for Natural Textures

Opt for cotton, wool, burlap, and other natural fibers throughout the space instead of synthetic blends. These natural textures help bring in more of a simple, organic vibe.

5. Don’t Get Too Fussy; Keep It Simple

If you start loading up on farmhouse kitsch, you’ll end up with the opposite of a modern farmhouse look. Don’t use a lot of clutter or over-accessorize.


6. Choose Natural Tones and Neutrals

Similar to using natural textures, also opt for natural tones and neutrals. So choose colors you would find in nature, like blues, greens, reds, etc.

7. Choose a Key Focal Point

Don’t make your eyes look all over the place when you enter the room. Choose a central focal point for your space.

A freestanding tub is a very common element of farmhouse decor. A beautiful clawfoot tub with a stunning chandelier hanging above it.

8. Select a Few Vintage Pieces

If you’re struggling with the modern farmhouse vibe, start with a modern design, then layer on vintage touches. Select a few key pieces that you can pepper throughout the space.

9. Keep the Design Practical

The farmhouse style praises function (think of a hardworking farm). So create a beautiful space, but not at the expense of practicality.

10. Go for an Overall Airy Vibe

Imagine sunlight pouring in through a farmhouse window. That’s the feeling you want in your modern farmhouse bathroom. Keep things open and bright.
