The Farmhouse Style Bathroom
April 26, 2018
Don’t live in a Farmhouse? Well don’t let that stop your from adding some lovely Farmhouse Décor to your home. Many people are doing bathroom makeovers and the current trend is Farmhouse style.
What is “Farmhouse Décor” Style?
The Farmhouse Style has developed over the last few years as people were looking for simpler ways to live their lives. With the advance of minimalism, people are turning towards a more natural, easy-going environment.
When it comes to home decorating, which include the bathroom décor, they want to return to the more simplistic times. They don’t want a lot of busy décor themes. Many people now are wanting to embrace old traditions of the days gone by down on the farm.
The simplicity of it all makes them feel more relaxed.
Mind you, the Farmhouse Style isn’t for everybody, but for those of you dreaming of long forgotten memories of the days gone past then, this would be a good bathroom decorating style for you.

Use Natural Textures and Materials
Farmhouse Décor doesn’t generally have much color. It gets it’s calming effect by keeping things neutral so look for Shower Curtains and Accessories with a variety of texture.

Wood and Reclaimed Wood
As we mentioned, there is a lot of wood in a farmhouse style bathroom. Usually the apron sink is set on a wooden cabinet and there are touches of wood in various other parts of the bathroom such as signage or open shelves.
Farmhouse style floors are usually covered in wood or reclaimed wood.
If you can’t afford real wood then you might consider installing a vinyl, waterproof floor instead of the real thing. Wood floors can be expensive so vinyl flooring is a cheaper alternative.
There are many different variations on Rustic Barn Flooring so you are not limited in your choices.
There are all kinds of ways to add wood finishes to your bathroom. Many use Wainscotting or Shiplap, while other may use barn boards like the pic below.
If you’re looking for a cheaper way to do a wood finish you might like something like this: Believe it or not, this is actually just peel and stick!
How much easier can it get than that!
Tip: I wouldn’t use this on the shower wall as it would get too wet, but on the other walls in the bathroom it should be fine 🙂
Speaking of wood, let’s not forget about your Farmhouse Bathroom Vanity. There are many models to choose from and of course you can decide whether you want a single sink vanity or double sink. It all depends on the size of your household, the size of your budget and your budget.
