Tips on creating a country style bathroom

Tips on creating a country style bathroom

Posted by Nicky Kingston in Inspiration | 4 years ago 2 min read

We're huge fans of rustic bathrooms here at Victoria Plum, so we decided to pull together our top tips for creating your very own country escape.

Whether you live in the city or out in the sticks, one design that never seems to lose its popularity is the country style bathroom. There's something simply exceptional about interiors that feel warm and cosy yet simple in their approach.

Find out how you can turn your bathroom into a rustic retreat with our top tips.

Use natural materials

Nothing says "country" more than wood and textured natural materials and there are so many different ways to incorporate them into your bathroom, from easy fit laminate flooring to furniture.

If you aren't looking for a full bathroom update, then accessories are the perfect place to start. A new wooden toilet seat, a light wood-framed mirror and a few Hessian-style containers would make the perfect country combination.

If you're happy to do a little more work in your bathroom, then tiles might be just what you are looking for. Tiles work brilliantly in the bathroom—they look good, last for years and are a simple way to add to the style of the room. Stone and wood effect tiles will suit the country look perfectly.

Earthy colours

Our next tip is to fill your bathroom with earthy colours. Whether you use them on your walls, your towels or even your furniture, just make sure they are coordinated. Use greens, browns and creams to get that perfect country style.

Crafted pieces

Don't be afraid to get your craft on. Homemade pieces complement this room style and are great fun to create. Wrapping rope around containers is a really simple project for you to complete that will look great and work well in your new bathroom.

If you don't have the time to create any handcrafted masterpieces, not to worry—simply keep your eye out for all the perfect little accessories you are looking for.
