What's Your Style? Farmhouse.

Farmhouse-style bathrooms balance the rustic appeal of regional, rural heritage with simplicity-loving modern sensibilities. And while farmhouse bathrooms today often incorporate modern elements, this isn’t the place to experiment with trends: Think simple, honest and homespun.

Key features:

  • Shaker-style vanity and storage pieces with simple hardware
  • Barn or Industrial-inspired lighting
  • Wall paneling
  • Claw-foot bathtub or freestanding bathtub
  • Open shelving
  • Exposed beams and natural wood accents
  • Sliding barn door shower doors
  • Trough sink

Color palette:
Farmhouse bathrooms favor simple, natural color palettes. White with crisp black trim is a popular choice; for richer hues, look to nature-inspired neutrals and other classic colors.

  • Crisp contrast. White, cream, black
  • Natural neutrals. Buttermilk, straw, gray, khaki, stone
  • Other classic colors. Barn red, denim blue, robin’s-egg blue, sage, deep green

Things you WILL find:

Shaker-style vanity
The graceful simplicity of Shaker-style cabinetry is well-suited to farmhouse bathrooms. Shaker-style cabinets can be painted or simply finished to allow the natural beauty of the wood grain to show through.

Barn lighting
The bold shape and industrial styling of barn lighting adds a stylish touch to farmhouse bathrooms. Look for pendants and sconces in classic galvanized steel or brightly colored powder-coated steel. Looking for something a bit different? Try simple glass bell- or cylinder-shaped vanity lighting with traditional or filament bulbs.

Claw-Foot Bathtub
An iconic claw-foot tub immediately adds farmhouse character.

Trough Sink
An apron-front or trough sink ramp up the rural character of farmhouse bathrooms.
