Enjoy a long, hot soak in comforting surroundings with a bathroom that’s been themed to reflect everything we love about wholesome country styling. Think distressed textures, mismatched accessories, and a colour palette that embraces neutral tones.
From traditional country rustic to rural meets modern, here are our favourite design ideas for a stylish country theme.
Introduce natural materials
A country-style bathroom is a cosy bathroom. Earthy textures lend a natural feel and are ideal for conjuring up warmth and comfort. Wood is an ideal addition in the bathroom and will evoke a sense of the British countryside.
Create a log cabin-feel with wood that’s reminiscent of fresh cuttings from the timber yard. Oak-finished cabinets produce a feeling of quality and won’t date in the style stakes. Style them against a plant-green tile border for a striking contrast.
Wooden panelling captures the country rustic trend perfectly. Bring a touch of shabby chic by painting it – turquoise has a relaxed, aqua appeal that also mirrors the natural shades of the county. Draw attention to characterful features such as sloped ceilings by positioning a freestanding bath directly underneath.
TIP: Natural light is also key in a countryside scheme. Place the tub near the window to cast a natural glow over the bath while you soak up the bubbles. Weave in some distressed textures for raw and rustic appeal.
Solid wooden shelving feels synonymous with country interiors and offers an instant farmhouse feel. Make your shelves count by using them to showcase ornate accessories and indoor plants. Mix and match your pieces to enhance the country vibe.
Neutral hues bring a sense of calm and are great for bouncing light around the room. Channelling a neutral look also gives you the freedom to mix up the accessories when you fancy a change.
Paint it cream
Creamy white hues add a bright and airy attitude to the country mood. Set the tone with a magnolia-coloured backdrop and team it with light grey furniture for a modern take on country. A marble-topped vanity unit will add a feeling of opulence. Round off with a cross head mixer for old-world charm.
Go grass green
Green is a core colour in a country-themed space. Drawing on those idyllic outdoor scenes, natural greens are ideal for inspiring relaxation. Combine with dark wooden furniture for forest-like appeal. Invest in a slipper bath for a lavish spin on the rustic look.
Countryside-inspired finishing touches
A country-style bathroom wouldn’t be complete without a hint of pattern. Intricate floral motifs bring lashings of charm and are guaranteed to draw the eye.
Leafy patterns are an easy way to bring the outdoors in. Incorporate a botanical border for an instant sense of country. Be as daring as you like with the design, but contrast it with plain tiles to give it focus. Coordinate whatever you go for with your accessories for a harmonious look.
If you get the right look, pattern tiles can be perfect for adding a retro nod – a key characteristic in a country setting. Create a rustic feature wall using patterned tiles or focus a few around the wash basin for a stylish focal point.
Add a vintage statement piece
A traditional country look wouldn’t be complete without a touch of vintage. Offering bags of rustic charm, a chandelier can transform the mood of a room entirely. Hang it above busy mosaic flooring for a dramatic boost.
Channeling a country theme is all about embracing a look that feels unpolished and undone. By incorporating country-like features and marrying these with handpicked accessories, you can create a cosy space you’ll love unwinding in. Visit your nearest showroom.
