Farmhouse Bathroom Ideas
Shiplap is a fresh way to uplift the walls of any bathroom, it lends perfectly to the farmhouse look. Although, too much shiplap throughout a house can be seen as being dated, especially as trends finish through their cycle. Shiplap can be used on both the walls and ceilings, usually a mix of horizontal and vertical placements. But don’t overdo it. Shiplap is seen a LOT in farmhouse bathrooms, but it is not imperative to still help achieve the look.
Rustic Stone Sinks
It’s all about incorporating rustic elements into this style of bathroom and a stone sink set in a natural or moody cabinet is the perfect setup. There’s something about them that just completes the bathroom, combine with other natural elements such as greenery and organic towels.
Natural Sink Dressers
It’s all about the old, upcycled and natural for the bathroom when it comes to what you set your sink on. Generally speaking, natural sink dressers are great where the sink is set on top of the counter rather than being inset. Facebook marketplace is great for picking up old cabinet style dressers that can be upcycled in a cost effective way. Ones with drawers and openings like the below are great for displaying towels, and toilet rolls in a rustic way.
