12 Country-Style Washrooms

The bathroom may be last on the list when it comes to decorating, but these beautifully designed spaces will inspire you to move it to the top!
  • Cabin commode

    You don't have to live in a log cabin to get this look! Add horizontal, rough-hewn planks to exterior walls, along with sections of stacked stone. Exposed ceiling beams complete the cozy cabin feel. A cleanly styled, wood-enclosed tub and simple white basin atop a wooden cabinet make this room feel very old, but with all the modern conveniences.

  • Bucket basin

    A galvanized pail with the handle still in tact makes a whimsical sink basin in this country bathroom. The pail and wood countertop contrast nicely against the formal-looking red and white wallpaper and accessories.

  • Outhouse chic

    With its stone floor, shiplap walls, and box heater, this bathroom has a definite "sauna" feel to it. The wooden privacy screen between the toilet and the rest of the room is distressed and has a moon-shaped cut-out, just like an outhouse!

  • Privacy panels

    Even if you live in a fairly secluded area, you may not want to get in and out of the bath tub in front of wide-open windows.  What would the wildlife think? Here is a great solution that provides a bit of privacy, but still keeps the open, airy feel of the room and doesn't entirely block the view. Paint picture frames white, frost the glass (use an adhesive product or even peel-and-stick wax paper!), and replace the glass in the frame, but not the back.  Suspend frames from the top of the window sills so they hang in the center of the windows.

  • Fantastic florals

    A pretty blue and white toile floral wallpaper makes the perfect backdrop for this pretty bathroom. The highlight of the room, though, is the vanity. The base and doors were painted in contrasting colors, and aged with sanding and stain. If you have the artistic talent to paint a floral still life on your cabinet doors, by all means, go for it! If  not, never fear: you can get very realistic results with stick-on decals.

  • Vintage washroom

    All aboard! This bathroom has the definite feel of a 1940s train station. A long sink with two sets of fixtures sits below a long mirror hung sideways. Metal accessories like light fixtures, paper towel dispenser, and trash can add to the industrial look, and the "Washroom" sign hung above the sink ties it all together.

  • Your barn door's open!

    Sliding blue barn-style doors open to reveal a cleanly designed white bathroom. The feet on the tub are painted black to add a little contrast, and floor-to-ceiling glass shower doors help keep the room open.

  • Soaking sanctuary

    Tiny tiles in a random pattern give a sort of dream-like quality to this pretty bathroom. The shower head comes right out of the ceiling, and luxurious drapes surround the tub. A shower curtain's function, of course, is to keep water off the floor while showering. It would be so completely relaxing, though, to soak in a bubble bath with a good book and a sweet-smelling candle, and pull the curtains closed around the tub, blocking out the rest of the world.

  • Antique touches

    With just a few touches, this thoroughly modern bathroom is given a vintage farm style. An antique buffet takes the place of a vanity, and provides plenty of storage. The clean, rectangular tub is surrounded by a marble ledge, and a weathered piece of tin fits neatly underneath.

  • American Gothic

    This bathroom is a prime example of how just a few accessories can change a room. The ordinary vanity is masked by a piece of draping white fabric, which can be attached with adhesive hook-and-loop closure strips. A simple white plank shelf is held by stained wooden shelf supports, and holds a pitcher of flowers and toiletries in pretty bottles. Blue and white plates add a splash of color to the wall. The star of the show, though, is the Gothic-style mirror. Remove the glass from an antique window and mount a mirror to the back for an unique accessory your guests will rave about!

  • Shaker style

    Muted tones and simple style make this country bathroom light and airy. The Shaker-style pegs that line the top of the high chair rail look beautiful and provide tons of places to hang towels and bathrobes. A few carefully selected accessories like a weathered wood-framed mirror, table, and bench; an antique bucket; and a vintage picnic basket complete the look.

  • Dramatically dark

    The white claw-foot tub and curtains provide a stark contrast to the dark tile floors and countertops and dark log walls in this beautiful bathroom. An open window lets fresh air in while you enjoy a soak in the big, comfy tub, and a crystal chandelier hanging overhead provides a touch of elegance.
