Decorating 101: 25+ Farmhouse Bathroom Ideas for a Stunning Transformation
1. Weathered Gray Wood
For a farmhouse bathroom with a masculine twist, take inspiration from this elegant design. The shaker-style cabinetry creates a clean, modern aesthetic that is offset by the wood’s weathered finish.
Pairing this distressed woodwork with exposed Edison bulbs and minimalist hardware only adds to the industrial appeal.
2. Rustic Tiny Bathroom
Good design doesn’t need to take up a ton of space. This unique bathroom makes good use of an incredibly small footprint.
Instead of taking up valuable square footage with superfluous decor, it uses a wooden vanity and wall accents to create rustic charm.
3. Rich Organic Hues
Neutrals are the backbone of the farmhouse-inspired design. But if you want to breathe a bit more color into your bathroom, consider using a natural shade like this beautiful forest green.
It goes perfectly with wood, wicker, stone, and other organic materials that are common in rustic decor.
4. Rustic Minimalism
Striking the perfect balance between modern and farmhouse decor isn’t as easy as pros like Joanna Gaines make it seem!
To give your bathroom a fresh and inviting design like the one seen here, focus on combining sleek shapes with rustic materials. The basin sink is a wonderful centerpiece that grounds this room in a classic farmhouse design.
5. Elegant Master Suite
This luxurious master bathroom is proof that the details can make or break a good farmhouse-inspired design. When you look at the individual elements within this space, nothing really screams farmhouse on its own.
Yet the combination of shiplap walls, rich wooden mirrors, and vintage light fixtures places this bathroom firmly in the realm of farmhouse design.
6. Knotty Pine Vanity
While this bathroom leans more toward a cabin vibe, it’s still a wonderful example of farmhouse design’s potential. The knotty pine cabinetry and trim add tons of texture and warmth to this otherwise simple space.
Even if this exact aesthetic isn’t the one for you, it offers a wealth of inspiration outside of the typical farmhouse style.
7. Reclaimed Bathroom Vanity
Something a ton of great farmhouse bathrooms have in common is a preference for traditional furniture in place of standard fixtures. You can now find countless bathroom vanities designed to look like vintage hutches or sideboards.
Or — if you’re handy with a set of tools — you may be able to DIY your own bathroom set using reclaimed furniture.
8. Luxury Vintage Farmhouse
Many farmhouse decor ideas draw inspiration from the modern design movement of the mid-1900s. This updated version of farmhouse design is popular for a reason.
But it tends to overshadow the classic glamor of vintage farmhouse elements like this Baroque vanity!
9. Shiplap Walls
To those unfamiliar with farmhouse decor, it can seem like the trend consists of nothing but shiplap. While we encourage you to think outside of the shiplap box, it can be extremely effective in the right space!
Play around with the orientation, color, and finish of your bathroom shiplap to achieve the ideal look.
10. Contemporary Decor
Farmhouse design has become so ubiquitous in contemporary homes that it can be hard to draw the line between it and other trends. This stylish bathroom is not farmhouse-inspired in and of itself.
Yet all of the elements inside would go just as well with any soft, rustic design you have in your own home.
11. Subtle Farmhouse Details
There are many reasons to maintain a clean, contemporary aesthetic within a space like a bathroom. In this example, the romantic cabinet doors and vintage bath faucet lend the perfect dose of farmhouse appeal without overpowering the rest of the space.
While this approach can make getting across your rustic inspiration a bit harder, it’s 100% possible to design an elegant farmhouse bathroom.
12. Sliding Barn Door
Sliding barn doors are only outranked by shiplap in the world of farmhouse decor trends. Admittedly, there are pros and cons to using this style of door for a bathroom.
Even if the idea of using a barn door for your bathroom’s main entrance doesn’t appeal to you, this is a great way to close off a linen closet or laundry area.
13. Barn Door Mirrors
We love how this spacious bathroom weds contemporary and rustic farmhouse design!
Despite being extremely minimalist in terms of decor, details like basin sinks, vintage fixtures, and barn door hardware above the mirrors really sells the warm yet elegant atmosphere.
The dark, slightly weathered wood also contributes a great deal to this interesting take on farmhouse bathing.
14. Soft and Feminine Bathroom
Farmhouse decor shows that a room can be curated and lived in at the same time. This feminine bathroom is incredibly inviting and comfortable while still being worthy of inspiration.
It’s easy to imagine starting each morning in this bathroom.
15. Subway Tile Shower
Subway tile has been around for a very long time. In recent years, however, this classic material has become closely associated with farmhouse-inspired decor.
Subway-style shower tile is a simple and modern way to bring a touch of rustic charm to your bathroom design. Pair the tile with warm wood elements to balance it out.
16. European Countryside
In the US, farmhouse decor is heavily inspired by classic Americana. Of course, farmhouses exist around the world.
Interior design inspired by the European countryside is a refreshing option for those looking for ideas that are more global in nature.
While the details differ, you may be surprised by how similar these two spheres of design truly are.
17. Retro Farmhouse Bathroom
Rather than turn to the modern iteration of farmhouse decor, why not decorate your bathroom with a vintage edge? This is a great strategy for anyone remodeling a bathroom with outdated fixtures.
To keep your retro space looking fresh, avoid clutter and mix in a few contemporary details alongside your throwback items.
18. Elevated Barn Wood
Some people have a misconception that rustic decor is inherently cheap. It’s true that reclaimed barn wood and similar trends often originate from a need to use materials that are already around.
But these materials can easily be paired with elegant, contemporary decor for a finished product that is undeniably luxurious.
19. Striking Wooden Vanity
It’s crazy what a single piece of furniture or decor can do to a space! In this example, the entire bathroom is bathed in white and cool, modern neutrals. This backdrop makes the rustic wooden vanity stand out as the star of the show.
Subtle additions like the shiplap accent wall ensure that the vanity still blends in with the space as a whole.
20. Hamptons Inspiration
If you’re struggling to find inspiration for your bathroom design project, it may be helpful to look outside of strictly farmhouse decor.
The stylish bathroom shown here technically boasts a Hamptons- or beach-inspired vibe, yet everything from the vanity color to wallpaper would look right at home in any classic farmhouse.
Even just switching out the wall tile for shiplap would transition this powder room to a more rustic aesthetic.
21. Rough Stone Tiles
Maybe the right choice for your farmhouse bathroom is to lean even further into the rustic aesthetic as a whole. This bathroom is remarkably tranquil — it would be the perfect space for a pool house or guest room.
The plethora of organic shapes and textures adds plenty of warmth to this small space.
22. Shiplap Wainscoting
Vertical or horizontal shiplap is a great alternative to traditional bathroom tile, especially when trying to infuse a space with farmhouse qualities.
This powder room is made to look bigger and brighter thanks to the shiplap wainscoting, yet still benefits from the hint of blue paint above.
Just keep in mind that most shiplap won’t protect your walls the same way tile would.
23. Shiplap and Edison Bulbs
Many farmhouse design ideas fit in beautifully with more contemporary elements.
Very little about this master bathroom fit into the farmhouse trend, but there’s something distinctly rustic about the space overall.
The inclusion of a shiplap accent wall and Edison-style vanity lighting do all the work in making this bathroom feel warm and down-to-earth.
24. Modern Apartment Bathroom
This very modern interpretation of farmhouse design is a refreshing sight for anyone who thinks the trend has run its course. Rustic details — for example, subway tile — have been reimagined to be less trendy.
It’s also incredibly space-conscious, which is great news for apartment-dwellers interested in utilizing a farmhouse aesthetic in their homes.
25. Vibrant Wall Color
Today’s farmhouse interiors tend to shy away from bright colors. So it’s easy to think that farmhouse decor isn’t for those of us that enjoy a bit of color in our lives.
Fortunately, the bathroom here shows that’s not the case. Elements like subway tile and wainscoting minimize the number of walls to be painted so that the space doesn’t feel overwhelmed.
26. Dramatic Rustic Lighting
A simple bathroom design is easily swayed by its finishing touches. In this example, the vast majority of the bathroom is contemporary and neutral.
As a result, the rustic, candle-style light fixtures add a ton of character even though they make up a relatively small part of the design overall.
