Add a pretty pattern. We’re getting braver when it comes to pattern on our floors. A vintage- or Moroccan-style tile can look fantastic in a bathroom. It adds welcome contrast to an all-white room, and it means that the rest of a room doesn’t have to work so hard to look stylish. Here, a pretty vintage-look pattern pairs with a black border, which grounds the design and adds a traditional touch.
A bathroom vanity needn’t be straight out of the shop or supplied by a manufacturer or cabinetmaker. Indeed, thinking outside the square can turn up a one-of-a-kind vanity with character and function to boot. Sideboards, desks and cabinets — whether new or used — can all be repurposed to provide storage and surface space.
You probably won’t be able to move any plumbing around, but you could replace fixtures and other materials with stock, off-the-shelf products like you’d find in a big-box store.
This modern farmhouse bathroom — like the other bathrooms in this story — interprets farmhouse style for the way people like to live in their homes today. It includes a key element of farmhouse style: a stand-alone tub, which has old-style valves and faucet handles that evoke an older farmhouse. But the homeowners still get a luxurious, separate walk-in shower.
