Easy ways to create a country bathroom
Exuding elegance and cosiness, country bathrooms never go out of fashion and will always be a desirable style, especially in period and more traditional properties.
This style of bathroom typically combines vintage fittings with natural materials. Take a look at the following six easy ways to create a charming and stylish country bathroom.
The choice of colour is important when designing a country bathroom. Opt for heritage hues such as muted greens, duck egg and powder blues. Warm neutrals also work will with this style of bathroom.
Patterned wallpaper crafts a vintage look. Wallpaper adorned in vintage-inspired prints is trending now and will bring a feeling of homeliness and comfort to this well-used living space that is perfect for the dark and cold months ahead.
Merge heritage tones and patterned wallpaper with natural materials, such as stone, wood, and metal, for a true country feel. Traditional tongue-and-groove wooden panelling makes a great feature in this style of bathroom. As does stone flooring, coupled with a vintage wooden dresser and other antique furniture. For a real country look opt for a natural stone basin or one made from antique metal.
If you prefer your bathroom walls and/or flooring to be tiled, opt for vintage-style tiles, such as a black-and-white checkerboard design or retro-style tiles in antique pastel tones.
Tile-covered walls and flooring are easy to maintain, long-lasting and will make a great addition to this type of bathroom.
The right accessories can work wonders when trying to craft a specific look in any living space, and none no more so when designing a country-style bathroom. Choose long linen curtains or a Roman blind to accentuate vintage wallpaper. Put floral fabric towels on display, accompanied with floral flannels. For larger bathrooms, make a vintage-style unholstered armchair a key feature, for a truly luxurious look.
