Farmhouse Bathroom Decor Essentials

I love farmhouse bathrooms and honestly it gets to a point I want every farmhouse bathroom makeover I come across and you know it’s impossible.

However, the more I dig into different farmhouse styles when it comes to bathroom ideas, there are some elements that seem to be present in most of these bathrooms.

Because these elements seem to exist in the majority of the modern farmhouse bathroom designs  I’ve come across, I term them as essential bathroom accessories.

In this section, we are going to look at those bathroom decor essentials before we head on to different farmhouse bathroom decor ideas.

White and Neutral Tones

White and neutral colors are ideal for modern farmhouse bathrooms and they give the space an airy and minimalist accent.

Good thing about white and neutrals is that it matches with any accent and even textures.

Try to fix clean line materials like shiplap or subway tiles then add some throw pillows or burlap for an accent.

Sliding Barn Door

Since your goal is to achieve a modern farmhouse bathroom decor design, a barn door will anchor your bathroom style effortlessly.

You can paint your barn door white or if you want a chic rustic style you can use a rustic paint.

Reclaimed Wood

For you to achieve a farmhouse theme in any type of decor, reclaimed wood must be used.

Good thing is, you can use reclaimed wood in different ways.

You can use reclaimed wood for your tables, construct a plank wall or install a beamed ceiling.

Farmhouse Sink

Farmhouse sinks are deeper than modern sinks and adding one to your modern bathroom transforms your bathroom instantly.

Also known as apron-front sinks, farmhouse sinks come in two designs; single basin style and double sink style.

You can also choose between copper and stainless steel farmhouse sinks because they are the most common farmhouse bathroom sinks.


You definitely need some natural light in your bathroom and thus a window is important.

A farmhouse bathroom design requires lots of natural light so you have to incorporate natural light in your bathroom space.

I love ceiling to floor windows for my bathrooms. If you can reconstruct your windows then it is important you try out ceiling to floor windows. Ceiling to floor windows allows enough natural light to get in your bathroom.

Farmhouse Antiques

A modern farmhouse bathroom must have some antiques sprinkled sparingly. Don’t go overboard. You want a country accent yes but you don’t want to end up with so much clutter.

I love the minimalist kind of a bathroom because it retains elegance and looks clean too.

Open Shelves/Open Storage

Most modern farmhouse bathroom designs I have seen come with open shelves. Majority of homeowners prefer floating shelves.

Whatever your choice may be, having a shelf is important.  Shelves give you that feel at home kind of a feeling and I’m sure you don’t want to miss that.

You can white wash your shelves or have them in the wood grain color.

You can have the shelves attached on the walls with visible brackets or just opt for floating shelves.

Hooks are also great for extra storage and you can hang towels on them if you don’t want to install a towel bar.


I have realized that most of the modern and farmhouse bathroom designs I have come across have a sconce lighting.

However some sconce lights don’t look appealing and so you have to go an extra mile to get those cute sconce lighting for your modern farmhouse bathroom style.


At first, I was worried about having a shiplap in my bathroom due to the humidity levels and of course I don’t want any disgusting decay or mildew in my bathroom.

I did a bit of research and found out that I can install shiplap in my bathroom but in places that don’t get water splashed on easily.

Shiplap tends to give a bathroom a cozy feel and at the same time a rustic look to a modern bathroom.
