Rustic Bathroom Ideas
Those walls! The curves and the fieldstone tile give this bathroom a warm, rustic feel thatâs balanced perfectly with the glamour of the tub and chandelier. Iâve been seeing more stone as tile lately but this scale is so dramatic. Iâd almost welcome a hard day, just to have an excuse to come home and soak in this tub. Fieldstone, take me away!
Whether your overall style leans more toward laid-back country comfort, or you're just looking to add rustic design in certain areas of your home, you'll want to explore rustic bathroom ideas as you prepare to bring a bit of the outdoors inside.
After: Chic Meets Cheerful
Soft gray walls, marble flooring and a furniture-style vanity create an elegant spot for guests to freshen up. Heather Scott Home & Design removes the wall-mounted cabinet above the toilet, making the space feel much larger and brighter.
Budget-Friendly: Upcycled Vanity
Instead of designing an expensive custom cabinet for the space, Scott attaches a Silestone countertop remnant to a chest furniture piece. The accent tile in the shower storage niche is pricier than the room’s other tile, so it’s limited to a small space where it still makes a big impact.
After: Warm and Inviting
Designer Rebecca Zajac prettifies the room by replacing the cabinets with a custom vanity and laying down patterned floor tiles. Black and brass metals complement the gray and give the room a warm sophistication.
After: Simple and Serene
To give the bathroom more personality, TerraCotta Design swaps out the plain pedestal sink for an Asian-themed vanity and replaces the oval mirror with an expansive frameless mirror that enlarges the room. TerraCotta keeps the wood flooring and repaints the walls to transform the room without going over budget.
After: Minimalist Luxe
A floating vanity and spacious glass shower open up this previously cramped bathroom. Rather than splurging on stone slab counters, Brown Design Group cuts costs with a one-piece countertop and sink. A single glass-panel shower helps the room feel larger while saving on extra hardware for a swinging door. Large-format wall tiles make for a quick install.
After: Bold Accessories
TerraCotta Design switches out the faucet, hardware and tile for an instantly dramatic transformation. A pair of bright, bold red stools pulls the look together.
The first place to start if you're considering a rustic bathroom design is with your choice of materials. In general, wood is the foundational material for any rustic design—and in bathrooms, wood will likely be best employed on walls.
You can employ beadboard paneling, stained to your liking, along with decorative wainscoting. Tones like greens and golden browns are great for a rustic feel, so explore these colors if you're thinking of painting or staining.
A traditional ceramic pedestal sink with a metal faucet can work great in a rustic bathroom design. In terms of accessories, complement the wood features with wrought iron, which can be used for everything from mirror frames to shelving.
Lastly, add fabrics with a hint of heft and durability. For example, consider a fabric shower curtain or towels in a rustic plaid or buffalo check design.
